Welcome to episode #779 of Six Pixels of Separation.
Here it is: Six Pixels of Separation – Episode #779 – Host: Mitch Joel. You never know who you are going to meet and become friends with online. Going back to the early days of Amazon’s Alexa, Google Home, Siri and beyond, the idea of apps (or skills, as they are called) for these interactive audio platforms has always interested me (so much so, that I was an investor in a voice skills company, and became interested in running it for a short period of time). At the forefront of this space (and other audio platforms and technologies) is Bret Kinsella. Bret is founder, CEO, and research director of Voicebot.ai. He was named commentator of the year by the Alexa Conference in 2019 and is widely cited in media and academic research as an authority on voice assistants and AI. He is also the host of the Voicebot Podcast and editor of the Voice Insider newsletter. I reached out to him several times back when I was investing in the space, but he was too busy to connect. Then, through the power of Clubhouse, we met and became fast friends. Our world continues to evolve. Smart audio, podcasting, bots, and more are becoming a powerful tool for businesses smart enough to understand the potential, opportunity and inevitability of it all. Enjoy the conversation…
