This will be a very special “Super Session” in the Product Development (PD) Track. On Saturday, October 1, The PD Track will dedicate the day to a workshop where product development professionals learn about the latest technologies and best practices in bringing new products to market across the entire development process. The PD Track is targeted to Product Design Engineers, Product Managers, Product Marketing, and Engineering Managers.
This day-long session will be presented by a team of product development experts, each one discussing best practices and technologies in their specific disciplines of Product Management, User Experience, Industrial Design, Acoustic Design, Natural Voice Processing, Validation and Testing, and Sourcing and Supply.
Unlike other AES sessions, this is a day-long session where the presenters will be working as a team with our audience throughout the day in presenting, discussing, demo’ing and more. Please reserve the day for Super Saturday at the PD Track.
To bring this session to life, the team will develop an actual product (codenamed Speak2Me) in front of and with the help of the audience. Each of the disciplines will be tied to the killer product being designed. The proposed product will be one that competes with Sonos, Alexa and other high volume consumer AoT (Audio of Things) products. We will also have a demo room to get a hands on look at the Speak2Me and interact with the development team.
By applying the best practices of Product Development to an actual product will connect the audience into how these topics apply in the real world. It’s like taking the lecture and lab at the same time. The attendees will in one day get a learning experience in all facets of product development and may be headed back to their labs to create their ‘killer’ product!
