The Machine Agencies group presents a workshop on designing creative voice bots.

Location: TAG, EV 11th floor, Room 11.435

In this workshop, we’ll discuss the history of speech recognition and speech synthesis, learn the basics of conversational design, and then create our own creative voice bots. We’ll learn how to appropriate corporate technology to make experimental, strange, or subversive voice assistants.
