Centric Miami and PMI South Florida to Host April Dinner Meeting on Voice User Interface
At this event, we’re covering how Voice User Interface (VUI) is taking over the world and why you should care.
Join Centric Miami for this event on April 11, 2019 in partnership with the Project Management Institute (PMI) of South Florida. It’s a good time to be a computer scientist. In the last 25 years, our field has seen unimaginable growth.
Think about the innovations that have been introduced during this time:
- Graphical User Interfaces
- World Wide Web
- Cloud computing
5:30 to 6:15 pm — Networking and Registration; Sponsor showcases
6:15 to 6:45 pm — Dinner
6:45 to 7:00 pm — Opening remarks/Chapter Update by President
7:00 to 8:30 pm — Keynote Presentation
The pace of innovation continues at break-neck speed, with each new innovation coming to market faster and disrupting industries that have been around for decades.
And we are at an inflection point with one such disruptive technology: Voice. Voice recognition has existed for years with varying levels of success. By now, we’ve all had the frustrating experience of interacting with interactive voice response (IVR) systems on the telephone.
More recently, voice technologies like Amazon Alexa, Apple Siri, and Google Home have made their way into our personal lives, helping us find directions, turning on the lights in our home, and playing our favorite music simply by using our voice.
The success of voice-enabled personal assistants is ushering in the next disruption in business computing: Voice User Interface or VUI.
During this presentation, Chris Martinez will present case studies of how conversational user interfaces and chatbots are disrupting the project world. The discussion will focus on how voice recognition is been used in organizations, and how VUI has exploded in popularity over recent years.
