Event Description

The Elements of Voice User Interface Design
with Dr. Ahmed Bouzid

and the Comcast Experience Design Team!

 In the last few years, we've seen the rise of voice-driven devices from companies like Amazon and Google make their way to millions of homes. PhillyCHI is thrilled to host guest speaker Dr. Ahmed Bouzid, for an evening on sharing the opportunities experience designers now have to design voice experiences and interfaces.

 We'll kick-off the night with a demonstration by Comcast's Experience Design Team on their current line of products, followed by a talk by Dr. Bouzid on the history of voice usability and the challenges of working in the space. We'll conclude the evening with a panel discussion between Dr. Bouzid and the Comcast team on the direction of Voice UX, with plenty of time for audience Q&A.
