I spoke about the rise of Artificial Intelligence in our ‘2019 Digital Trends‘ video which you can watch for free by using the promo code ‘trends19‘ at the checkout.

One of the points I made was that you will already have experienced Artificial Intelligence, perhaps without realising. It’s all around us and we’ve even set it up here on this Comsteria Blog.

New technology from Amazon means that this blog post is automatically converted into speech, as soon as I publish it, so at the top of the page you’ll see the audio file with the play button. We’re able to choose the accent of the voice that reads the blog post out to you. Why not give it a try?!

Of course this has benefits for our accessibility – now people with visual impairments can get all the information from our blogs, and it also benefits people who want the information but are busy doing something else that requires them to look at what they’re doing.

It goes even further. The Amazon AI technology also automatically publishes these audio files as a podcast, so in addition to the Comsteria Podcast you can also now listen to the Comsteria Blog, in podcast form, on iTunes.

Finally, again using Amazon AI technology, our blog posts are now automatically translated into 14 languages including Russian, Chinese, French, German, Spanish, Swedish and Japanese. The nature of our business means none of this is likely to have a dramatic impact on our fortunes, but as they say, it all adds up and given that it took a few hours yesterday afternoon to set up, and for the volume of visitors this website gets doesn’t cost anything, it’s certainly worth doing.

For your business, the benefits might be considerably greater.
