Open Voice Network Communities are open to everyone in the conversational AI community – developers, designers, strategists, linguists, researchers, marketers, and students. There’s no charge or membership fee to participate. All that’s required is a willingness to give of your time, a willingness to share your best thinking in a collaborative, open environment, and a commitment to a conversational AI future that is multi-platform, multi-assistant, multi-modal, multi-use, multi-device, user-centric, and standards-based.
