Another Demonstration of my IoT Workflow Software

Here is my friend, Thomas Roemer of Avaya, with another demonstration of IoT in action.  In this video, he is running my IoT workflow tasks (plus several others I created) from the Avaya CPaaS cloud platform (formerly known as Zang). Cool stuff! Advertisements

Call the Midwife — a Patient to Nurse Smart Speaker Bot

I decided to have a little fun today and expand on what I have been doing with bots.  This time around, I created the prototype of an application that allows hospital patients to request a nurse via a bedside smart speaker.  While my bot is still pretty simplistic, the idea it explores can be expanded […]

Three Questions with Andrew and Andrew (A Video Conversation)

I will just come out and say it.  I hate seeing myself on video.  Call it vanity or call it insecurity, but I always think I look dorky.  So, it was with great trepidation that I accepted Andrew Maher’s invitation to virtually sit with him for three questions.  However, after all the dust settled and […]

Building Alexa Applications for IoT

A few weeks ago, I shared the work I have been doing in creating bots for Google Home smart speakers.  As cool as those applications are (in my humble opinion), I don’t ever want to be thought of as a one trick pony, so I recently turned my attention to doing the same for Amazon’s […]

Smart Speakers: From the Kitchen to the Boardroom

In my previous article here at SIP Adventures, I introduced you to the work I am doing with smart speakers and IoT.  This week’s article in No Jitter, takes that work even further and demonstrates how smart speakers such as Google Home can be integrated with WebEx Teams.  Be sure to check it out! Smart […]

Building IoT Bots With CloudHawk and Google Home

I have been programming since I was a senior at Coronado High way back in 1975.  Yes, I am that old.  While today’s projects are light years beyond the simple things I once wrote in BASIC and Fortran, the thrill of creating something amazing out of a bunch of number and letters is still just […]

Digital Transformation — Avaya Breeze and Beyond

“The limits of the possible can only be defined by going beyond them into the impossible.” – Arthur C. Clarke In technology, some ideas take a long time to catch on.  Consider Microsoft’s journey to Skype for Business.  For better or worse, I was there from the beginning — from Microsoft’s first foray into telephony […]

Cisco, Meet Avaya. Avaya, Meet Cisco

Come together, right now over me Lennon and McCartney   If you are as old as I am, you have almost certainly been asked this question at least once in your life: “Beatles or Stones?” While that is an easy answer for some folks, I happen to really like both bands.  No single Beatle had […]

The ABCs of an IoT Architecture

It’s easy to learn how to drive a car without understanding how an internal combustion engine works.  The same can be said about many of the machines and devices that we take for granted.  Who among us can explain how an air conditioner cools a room?  I expect that most people cannot.  We typically learn […]

Cops and Robbers IoT

Once again, my friends at Avaya have done really cool things with my IoT software!
