    Natural Language Interaction with the Web of Things

    by Deborah Dahl

    Mobile Voice Conference 2015

    San Jose, California, USA

    Relevant technology areas: Web of Devices and Web of Services.

    Connected things are becoming more and more ubiquitous -- in the home, industrial settings, public places and many more. The current model for user interaction with all these things is to use conventional apps or web pages, but this approach doesn't scale. As the number of connected things increases, interacting with them through individual UI's becomes impractical. Similarly, if every type of connected thing has its own API this greatly increases the complexity of application development.This talk will discuss how the W3C Multimodal standards EMMA and the Multimodal Architecture address these scalability issues in the Web of Things.

    The internet of things is predicated on tiny, cheap, lower power computers being embedded in devices everywhere. However such tiny devices by definition have very little memory and computing power available to support user interfaces or extended servers, and so the user interface needs to be distributed over the network. This paper describes techniques using standard technologies based on XML for creating remote user-interfaces for the Internet of Things.

    Special Event: Standardization Brown-Bag (panel)

    by Deborah Dahl

    Interspeech 2015

    Dresden, Germany

    Relevant technology areas: Web of Devices and Browsers and Other Agents.

    This special event is dedicated to standards in speech and multimodal technology. Three distinguished panelists representing different standardization bodies will be discussing a variety of topics concerning standardization activities with the audience. Topics include: •Goals of standardization •(Dis)Advantages of standardization •How do different standardization bodies address these goals? What are their pros and cons? •What use cases are especially interesting to the Interspeech community? •What existing standards should the Interspeech community know about? •What new standards are needed to support use cases of interest to the Interspeech community? What aspects are missing in standardization, how should they be handled? •How can one get engaged in standardization activities? •What different levels of standards are there (note, working draft, recommendation, etc.)? •What is a typical timeline to develop a standard? •Types of standards publishers (informal standards based on industry/research consortia vs. formal standards bodies; “open specifications” published by a single vendor) •Best practices vs. standards
