With voice search coming to television and video platforms like Sky Q, along with many other voice-enabled products and services, we’re seeing the emergence of conversational interfaces. I was prototyping such concepts at the turn of the millennium, with an avatar called Ananova that attracted considerable media interest at the time, but now the technology is available to make them practical. Natural language interfaces could transform the way we interact with television and video. Are you ready for a conversation with your television? At TV Connect in London this week, I’ll be moderating some of the conference sessions on how and why the television and video experience is changing. I hope to see you there if you’re able to attend.
