It aims to answer the following questions: How can you participate in the voice-enabled virtual assistant movement? What standard formats and protocols are necessary to enable providers to make their services and content available to virtual assistants? Who should specify these standards? How will virtual assistants discover new services and content and make them available to users? How will user interface designers make user interactions with virtual assistants easy and natural? What security mechanisms will guarantee a safe and hacker-free environment for virtual assistants and their users and contact/service providers? How can you enable assistants to follow customers from one device to another? How do virtual assistants interact with each other?
