Call for participation: CHI 2017 Course on Speech-based Interaction

*** Registration is still open for this course ***

Do you like your mobile phone's voice-enabled digital assistant? Or do you hate her / him / it? Do you want to know more about how it works? If yes, then consider registering for the CHI 2017 Course: "Speech-based Interaction: Myths, Challenges, and Opportunities" (yes, there are spaces still available!) For the seventh consecutive year at CHI, we will debunk myths surrounding voice interfaces, demystify how speech recognition and synthesis work, discuss how speech interfaces fail their users, and challenge interaction designers and researchers to explore how speech can enhance existing and future interaction paradigms.

For course details please go to:

To register go to and add the "Speech-based Interaction" course to your registration. The course is scheduled for Tuesday, 9th May 2017, at 09:30.

Looking forward to seeing many of you in Denver!
