A talk with AISense CEO Sam Liang about voice AI and an emerging new landscape
I’ve been writing about new technologies since my days as a columnist at four magazines in the late 1990s. And lately I’ve been incorporating new tech — especially artificial intelligence — into my high-tech thrillers.
So when acclaimed tech author Shel Israel (co-author of “Naked Conversations,” “The Fourth Transformation,” et al.) invited me to the offices of AISense (AI as in artificial intelligence) in Los Altos earlier this month, I jumped at the chance.
What drew us to their AISense HQ was their new product Otter.ai, which we saw in action at the VB Summit in Marin County last week. Both Shel and I knew we were seeing something remarkable: real-time translation of the conversation on stage that was so fast and accurate, it almost seemed like a teleprompter that the speakers were reading from.
