Content Introduction

Whether for wearable devices or ordinary computers, or set-top boxes of home game consoles or living rooms or even smart homes and cars, voice interaction is very useful. iPhone ringtones, Facebook messenger sounds and the like are all very successful examples. These sounds complement vision and voice in user experience, and they are even the main interactive media in many products of Google Nest.

Relative to Siri, Alexa and other features and products dominated by voice interaction, pure sound design sounds like targeted at a "small crowd", but it is really very interesting. Sound design contains a profound craftsman spirit. In the actual design process, the sound designer will personally select the timbre and texture of instruments to compose the sounds that convey pleasing and clear messages. In addition to the artistic side, the sound designer's work also has a design side: to understand the experience scene, design the sound, carry on the design review with team members to obtain the feedback, test sounds and so on.
In this round table, Jason Wang, along with Google's first sound designer and design leader, Steven Clark, will lead the participants to appreciate the secrets of acoustic user experiences:
1. What is the acoustic user experience and what is the design process?
What is the professional background of the voice interaction designer? What skills need to be mastered?
3. The artistic and scientific natures of sound design
4. How does Nest create a human-like sound design, and how does it build the brand recognition and usability of sound design?
5. How to communicate with the product team and test the sound design?

These contents will help designers, product managers, CEOs and so on who are interested in voice smart hardware to know and master sound design, and help designers who want to transform in this aspect to quickly learn what abilities they need to possess.

This will be the first time Google's first sound designer and design leader has come to China to share Google's latest cutting-edge technology and design concepts with domestic users.
