The #1 Event For Voice Tech and AI in America

APRIL 12-14, 2021

Chattanooga, TN - In-Person - Home of the Nation's Fastest Internet

Voice technology, and its underlying artificial intelligence, is a reflection of who we are as human beings.

When we're born, all we have is our mother's voice. Soon thereafter, we go on to develop an inner voice that will guide us for the rest of our lives.

It always stood to reason that as technology evolved, it would arc toward being voice-driven...voice-oriented...what we call voice-first.

Project Voice is executive produced by Bradley Metrock, host of top technology podcast This Week In Voice. Metrock authored Harvard Business Review's Your Company Needs A Strategy For Voice Technology, the popular book More Than Just Weather & Music: 200 Ways To Use Alexa, and the influential daily letter to the voice and AI tech communities, This Week In Voice VIP.
