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 […]

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 […]

Time Keeps on Slipping, Slipping, Slipping…

Every spring for the past 55 years, the homeowners on both sides of my block have gotten together to clean our alley from one end to the other.   With our brooms, rakes, shovels, clippers, and trash cans, we work as a team to find and dispose of every last scrap of debris and yard waste.  […]

Visualizing IoT

Those of you who know me from my technical, nerdy life know that I love protocols.  It’s true.  I simply adore bits, bytes, request messages, responses, ACKs, and message bodies.  I take great pleasure from looking through a complicated Wireshark trace and knowing exactly what a particular header value means and why it was used.

Visualizing Natural Language Processing

Last week I introduced No Jitter readers to Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Facebook’s free NLP service, wit.ai.  I wrote about intents and entities and how they work together to convert human language into actionable components.  If you are like me, though, you only learn so much from reading.  You need to see concepts in […]

IoT and the Communications Workflow

I’ve been awfully quiet lately, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been working…and working hard.  For the last few months, I have been immersed in writing software for my company’s IoT (Internet of Things) platform.  Additionally, I’ve branched out into integrating with other cloud services such as ServiceNow. Last week, I sat down (virtually) with […]

Game On – The Gamification of the Contact Center

I’m sure we’ve all been asked to name our worst job.  For me, it was washing dishes at John Gardiner’s Tennis Ranch.  I worked the breakfast shift and clocked in at the absurd hour of 5:00 in the morning.   Not only did I have to put up with scalding hot water, an overbearing chef, and […]

Are You Experienced

By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest. — Confucius My wife and I enjoy eating out.  We both work hard Monday through Friday and look forward to a weekend night or two of no meal […]
