Voice dialog systems: Communicate with machines and receiving texts from animals

Voice dialog systems: Communicate with machines and receiving texts from animals

How exactly do voice dialog systems work and what can I do with them? No matter whether you need real-time voting, a "click to call" button on a website or a telephone survey, Developer Evangelist Sascha Wolter (www.wolter.biz) will explain how. In addition to such specific sample applications as the cow that sends texts, the garbage truck that exchanges messages and the project management tool that makes telephone calls, he presents a wide range of innovative visions relating to machine-to-machine communication (abbreviated to M2M) and on the side explains why it is so important for telecommunication companies and users. Sascha also provides numerous code snippets in the most varied of programming languages such as PHP, C# and JavaScript and for various platforms to make getting started easier - especially because developers are no longer producing apps for people but in terms of M2M are also creating them for machines and others.

The event will take place at c-base in Berlin. c-base is located in the heart of Berlin on the banks of the river Spree and is easily accessible (see directions).

You can register by December 11, 2012, either informally by sending an e-mail to techtalk@developergarden.com or via our XING , Facebook and Google+ events. The event will start at 7 pm. Attendance is free and drinks and snacks are provided.

Info for getting there and parking in Berlin

The event will take place at c-base. c-base is a hackerspace in Berlin, right next to the river Spree, between the Jannowitzbrücke bridge and the Ostbahnhof station.

With a little luck, you may find a parking space right in front of the building. If not, you can use the nearby parking garage next to the Turkish Embassy across the other side of Brückenstraße or leave your car next to Köllnischer Park.

The easiest way to get to c-base using public transport is to take the U8 from the U-Bahnhof station Heinrich-Heine-Str or from the S- and U-Bahnhof station Jannowitzbrücke, just one stop away from Alexanderplatz.

Rungestr. 20

When approaching from the road, walk through the main entrance and cross to the other side of the courtyard. The entrance is right at the back, looking straight onto the river Spree ;-)

About TechTalk

With the TechTalk format, the Developer Garden – Telekom's developers' platform – offers a discussion forum for developer topics and trends in technology. The events begin with presentations and demonstrations from experts. The floor is then opened for questions and discussions. Afterwards, you can meet the speakers and other participants at the buffet, exchanging ideas and making new contacts.

TechTalks are currently taking place in Berlin and Darmstadt. And if you can't make it in person, you can follow the presentations as a live stream and participate in the online chat. We also post videos of the events on our YouTube channel afterwards.
