Difficulty to monetise, discover content and issues around privacy are some of the reasons why publishers are reluctant to start producing content for voice-controlled devices, despite their potential to be a new revenue and content stream. At Newsrewired (6 March), a panel of experts discussed how they are tackling these concerns.
Despite the rise in sales of voice-controlled devices, such as Amazon Alexa or Google Home, the difficulty of monetising content holds publishers back from innovating on voice platforms.
One of the panels at the Newsrewired conference will explore projects by early adopters and look at the benefits of investing in smart, speaker-friendly content.
New year, new exciting speakers.
We are pleased to announce three industry experts will be joining our panels on sustainable ways to finance digital journalism, and producing content for voice-controlled devices:
Jessica Best, operations lead and engagement editor at The Correspondent; Dominic Young, founder, Agate; and Peter Stewart, journalist and author
