Nearly a century ago, Dr. Charles Mayo recognized the indispensable role that health information offered patients. Today, Mayo Clinic is transforming the patient experience by harnessing the power of voice technology. Mayo Clinic First Aid is a skill developed for Amazon Alexa-enabled devices and provides actionable, evidence-based guidance when and where it’s needed most. See how one of the world’s largest academic medical centers approaches voice-first consumer health guidance.
“Most of the recent ‘buzz’ in voice has centered on Alexa. (Consider recent headlines about Amazon doubling down on Alexa development. Yet just last week, a report projected significant uptake of Google's voice device,” said Nathan Treloar, Orbita co-founder and president. “What's to come of Web and mobile communication Consider these two perspectives.”

Just as every business rushed to develop a website -- and rushed to develop mobile apps -- now businesses are rushing to harness the simplest, fastest way to interact with technology. Voice. Is your business ready?
Will Voice Assistants and Bots Replace Websites and Mobile Apps?
A video from Bill Rogers, Orbita Cofounder/CEO
Natural language refers to the way humans communicate with each other. Namely, speech and text. For computers, natural language used to be hard because it is messy, full of nuance and context. Only in the last few years has it been possible with Deep Learning AI and Natural Language Processing to extract the meaning out of speech or text with high accuracy. Bots and Voice Assistants are becoming the new way we interact with technology.
The market penetration of smart speaker for US households is growing at a staggering rate. For one reason users love them because saying what you want, is effortless and is hands-free. For tech-phobic people, it eliminates the tech barrier, since everyone knows how to ask a question, and when you don’t know what to say after a few seconds the voice assistant can guide you.
