Ian Bicking Talks Firefox Voice and Observations About Assistants Today – Voicebot Podcast Ep 166

Ian Bicking spent 10 years at Mozilla as a software developer, engineering manager, and research engineer. His last project there was Firefox Voice, a custom voice assistant for the Firefox Browser. That experience led him to record his observations on the state of voice technology and conversational AI from a developer’s perspective which he recorded in a 3,300-word blog post. Today, we discuss Bicking’s 12-month journey building a custom voice assistant and what he learned.

Before Mozilla, Bicking spent several years as a senior programmer at the Open Planning Project. He earned degrees in computer science and mathematics at Earlham College.
