Show Notes:

In this episode, we talk with Steven Arkonovich who is well known for writing the Big Sky weather capsule and is a professor of philosophy at Reed College.

Steven shares how he got started with voice. He was a very early Alexa developer and was driven by wanting to control music playback and home automation devices.

Steven is most well known for his Big Sky capsule and he shares his motivation for building Big Sky and how it has evolved over the years.

We talk with Steven about what he teaches at Reed College and discuss the philosophy of ethics. What is ethical truth? What is the intersection of ethics and psychology?

We discuss what value voice can bring to higher education and the largely untapped opportunities there.

We wind up by talking about the future of voice. How voice becoming more conversational will enable and open up value. We talk about the future of voice and ambient computing.
