What are you up to?
This is a new feature dedicated to showcasing what some of you readers are up to. Get in touch to get some airtime around what you are up to.
Nobody took the opportunity to tell us about any interesting projects, job moves, research or other activities.
This is your space to tell the Conversational AI world what’s new and exciting with you, so please let me know by DM or email.
Closing notes
So, it seems that the Metaverse is the big buzzword news at CES2022 this year. I’ve been jumping more and more into my Oculus Quest2 recently. Not only testing out Horizon Workrooms but also getting really addicted to the Lady Gaga Beat Saber music pack.
I’m hoping that this newsletter keeps building and improving with every issue. Let me know your thoughts, feedback and ideas of what you want to see by DM on LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram or even TikTok (not that I have worked that one out yet!).
