    Natural Language Interaction with the Web of Things

    by Deborah Dahl

    Mobile Voice Conference 2015

    San Jose, California, USA

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

    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.
