Strange Review: Voice AI Research Report

Our living research report on Voice AI, Apple's generative AI abilities via Siri

Voice, one of the most natural ways of human communication, will be one of the most intuitive ways we interact with advanced AI models — which is why we think it’s worth taking a deep dive into the current technical approaches and emergent applications in Voice AI.

There were four trends that surfaced for us during our exploration, where we see businesses leveraging Voice AI: Personalization at Scale, Invisible to the Human Ear, Getting the Bigger Picture (Contextual Intelligence) and Democratizing Access. Don’t miss the case studies we found on the most interesting applications of Voice AI.

One thing’s for sure. Things will move fast. This is why we designed our research report to be living, and updated on a quarterly basis.
