The Future of Voice: Clay @ Big Human

This was a talk I gave at Big Human (www.bighuman.com) about where we think the Future of Voice (Alexa, Siri, Google Home) may be heading at Clay. Clay is a platform that helps creating and sharing microservices and we think voice is one interesting place that these microservices will be used!
