Local Partners & Sponsors
It is up to you. Really.
We want to have the Voice Hackathon to be open and accessible to every organizer - without having a big venue, big sponsors, or a lot of participants.
Just invite friends into your house, college or internet coffee and let's do "voice hacking" together.
It can be only for 3-4 hours and then share with us your final video!
We can see a massive benefit for disabled travelers. A new world opens up for the blind Mark; now he can change the flight booking just using his voice.
Or for Mary, she does not speak Italian, but the Voice interactive guide can help there anytime she wants to know anything about Rome.
There is also a great initiative - Google Assistant for Good. Look at it.
