Dave Isbitski of Amazon: We believe voice will fundamentally change how we interact with technology

According to a recent NPR/Edison Research study of smart speaker owners, 42% of people surveyed say it has become essential to their everyday lives, 47% say they use it more now than they did when they first got it, and 65% say they wouldn’t go back to life without them. And of all the folks who took this survey, 76% own the Amazon Echo.

Although I didn’t take the survey, you can count me in all these numbers, as ever since I bought my first Amazon Echo almost three years ago I’ve been fascinated by how it can do so many things by only asking Alexa. So I was more than excited to speak with Dave Isbitski, Amazon’s Chief Evangelist for Chief Evangelist, Alexa and Echo, to hear more about how the device came about, how the Echo/Alexa combo is impacting customer behaviors and expectations, and where he’s seeing voice-first technologies taking us in the future.
