#eweekchatNew Trends in New-Gen SecurityHow are thought leaders and software providers working here in mid-2018 to jump ahead of the bad actors in the race to protect personal and business data?

If they don't, that's okay too. Perhaps next month's topic will be of interest to you: #eWEEKChat Sept. 12: "Will Voice UI Eventually Enable Everything?"

Invite Cortana and Siri next month!

(but only if that is "OK [with] Google". )

Voice is the easiest UI ever ... Big Red Easy Buttons are what people want
Chris Preimesberger
Heheh ... maybe I will invite Siri, Cortana, Alexa and Google to our discussion and let them have it out ;-)
Chris Preimesberger
Remember, we're here rain or shine on Second Wednesdays, Apple product introduction or no Apple product introduction! Take care and have a great rest of the week. For now, CP out!

Next month, I'll be moderating #eWEEKchat from the Orange Telecom tech conference in Paris. It's set for Oct. 10, and the topic will be "What's New in Low- and No-Code App Development." There's a lot happening in that sector, so try and join us!
Chris Preimesberger
I'm also noticing that the audience isn't here today. No problem; we did our part to bring the topic to the chat.
Chris Preimesberger
However, I'm noticing generally that Siri doesn't quite get instructions as well as Google, Cortana or Alexa. Are you seeing this too?
Chris Preimesberger
As time goes on, detection of words and dialects -- in various languages -- is getting better as the artificial intelligence in the apps become smarter with more data. A lot of good results are coming to the fore for Google, Microsoft, Nuance and others.
Chris Preimesberger
Perhaps we'll try another question:
Q2: What problems do you see in current voice UI?
Chris Preimesberger
I have a feeling that we're not going to have too many participants today. Thanks, Apple!?!
Chris Preimesberger
First question:

Q1: Are we already taking voice UI for granted in apps we use each day?
Chris Preimesberger
It's all about the "big red easy button." If it's easy to do and simple to understand, things get done. Voice enables this. And what about those who are illiterate? Estimates are that 25 percent of those on Earth cannot read or write. But they can talk.
