Abstract: We are at the beginning of a paradigm shift for how information gets distributed to end users. Instead of users requesting (pulling) data from servers and services, information is pushed to users' mobile devices, just at the right time. These push notifications can even be actionable, i.e. allowing a direct response. However, if they arrive on a wearable device, like a smart watch, a user can only use gestures and voice to interact.
You don’t have to put your ear to the ground, and still, you can literally hear it coming: The broad introduction of Voice User Interfaces. I will cover some basic speech recognition ideas and how to implement them on mobile devices. I'll give an overview of how push notifications work and what it takes to implement them in Java on the server side (Push), and in an Android mobile app (Receive). Also, an overview of Android Wear - how it works and what you can do with it.
You will get a glimpse of what could be the next big thing in UX and how it all fits together.
