Conversational AI is at a crossroads. Adoption of proprietary platforms has slowed significantly; consumer usage has stalled at simple functionality. At the same time, enterprises (across nearly all industries) see a value in conversational AI, not only in the call center, but in business operations and customer insight.

Join the leaders of the Open Voice Network, the LF's voice-centric community, for an open discussion on why, what, and what's next.
