This session will use a PaaS and services to demonstrate how to create and rapidly deliver intelligent applications that understand voice commands, develop deeper dialog with users, and control devices or actions. In this example, we will use voice commands to control a drone securely over the internet.

We will discuss the steps we took to create the demo and how they can be applied to general purpose applications.

This session is sponsored by IBM
