Welcome to Talk to Computer. It’s a newsletter and a magazine, a website, it’s on YouTube and Twitter, it’s soon to be a podcast. It’s many things.
Talk To Computer was founded by Benjamin Fisher. Mr. Fisher is currently the CEO and President of MagicCo, a voice design and consultancy founded in 2016 in Brooklyn, NY with outposts in London and Australia. Under Mr. Fisher’s leadership, MagicCo entered in the Inc. 500 list in 2019 and was the #340th fastest growing company in the United States according to Entrepreneur Magazine in the same year. Mr. Fisher started his publishing career at Washington University in St. Louis where he was Editor-in-Chief of the philosophy journal Poiesis. He has been featured in CNBC, Forbes, and other publications for his work and thoughts in the voice technology space. He can be reached on Twitter @Number2Fish or at www.benfisher.org.
Voice AI, almost more than any other type of Artificial Intelligence, incorporates or touches on just about anything and everything—from communication and digitization to ethics and identity, to life itself. It’s also about the larger effects that Voice AI has—on advertising, on branding, in the creation of identities not just for people, for individuals, but for businesses, companies, products. This is where Voice AI really has potential, where it might really catch on.
Voice AI is just in its infancy, it’s still evolving, and Talk to Computer hopes to evolve with it, and to inform those outside the Voice AI industry as much as those who are deep inside it.
