"Please Give Me Five Stars" - Does Self-Promotion Belong in Microcasting?

Imagine we're on a date. It’s our first date and you've never met me. You found me on a dating app that says I’m smart, compassionate, fun and, of course, love dogs. You’re intrigued, so we meet for a cocktail, which is at the same commitment level as listening to a flash briefing, versus inviting me to dinner, which would be more like an hour-long podcast. You aren't sure if you’re ready to give me that kind of time yet and want to test the water.

Award-Winning Tech Enables Emotionally Intelligent Conversations with AI


Emotion underpins most human interaction. Even for the briefest conversation, you instinctively analyze their facial expression, body language, tone of voice, and what kind of mood they're in so you can adjust your approach.

When someone says "smart speaker," most think "Alexa".

And Cortana? Well, Cortana is hobbling along with no real intent of running. (Let's spare Siri from the race altogether.)

But Microsoft could jump to the front with its latest voice-first innovation. One that could change how we interact with voice-enabled devices in the future—particularly in public.
