52: Jon Stine | Open Voice and Closing the User Trust Gap

Episode Description

Jon Stine is currently leading the Open Voice Network (OVN), the non-profit industry association dedicated to bringing the value of standards to the world of Conversational AI – to make voice worthy of user trust. His path to OVN coursed through the worlds of consumer goods, retail, and technology with global leadership roles at Intel and Cisco Systems. It was his second stint at Intel from 2014-2019 when this question was raised: “What emerging technology will most impact the relationship between a consumer-facing entity and its customers?” His answer was “Voice”. In this week’s episode of The Artificial Podcast, Nick chats with Jon Stine from the Open Voice Network about closing the trust gap between users and Conversational AI/voice assistant technology. Jon talks about his career working in both retail and technology companies like Intel and Cisco, and how those experiences guided him to start the Open Voice Network. Nick and Jon talk about Conversational AI and the future of the technology; specifically, how voice assistant tech will impact the retail industry. Jon also dives into the story behind the Open Voice Network and why he strongly believes that the future evolution of Conversational AI and Voice rests upon standards development and implementation that will truly make Voice “open” for all.
