When: 9:30am
Where: 8000 Walton Parkway, Suite 200 New Albany, OH 43054 United States


This TIGER Workshop is about how voice recognition services like Apple Siri and Amazon Alexa are affecting our daily lives and how we can use them to enhance our businesses.

We hear about Apple Siri, Google Home and Amazon Alexa, and we see people talking to their phones and to boxes at home. But how does it work? And more importantly, how can I use this technology to enhance my business?

The workshop will answer questions such as:

  • How do these voice services work?
  • Why are voice services like Amazon Alexa so important?
  • What are the ways I could leverage voice services to enhance my business?
  • How can you connect voice services to your business information?

You should attend if you are curious about how voice applications work or want to find ways to extend your business with voice services. The workshop will discuss the thought process needed to add voice services to your business. Once the workshop is completed, you will have a good idea of what solutions your business could create using voice services.
