KQED, a major NPR/PBS affiliate based in San Francisco is looking for a
technology historian with expertise in the development of voice
technologies to interview for a reporting project.

The project, titled The VoiceBot Chronicles, focuses on how humans are
coping with living in a world increasingly mediated by voice technologies -
from automated customer service agents to  talking cars to voice assistants
like Alexa and Siri.

One section of the project focuses in on history -- looking in particular
at the evolution of voice agents that aim to mimic human "personalities"
and "emotions."

KQED especially welcomes input from a historian who comes from a diverse
background -- eg perhaps someone who identifies as a woman or nonbinary
person, and/or is a person of color.

If you are interested in sharing your expertise with KQED for this project,
which would take 30-60 minutes of your time over zoom, please get in touch
with reporter Chloe Veltman at cveltman at kqed.org.
