Shyamala Paraga heads speech interfaces for Ford Motors. She joins us this week to talk about how we’ll converse with our cars in the future. Shyamala has 20 years of experience in UX design, 9 years of which have been focused on voice interaction and VUI.
Shyamala is a leading figure in the field of voice interfaces. See her web site here, including links to her books and publications.
Apologies to both Shyamala and our listeners: This was the first interview we recorded for The Voice Box, and we had some troubles with the audio. This is a great listen, with important content, but we admit the sound quality is less than perfect.
