Enabling Delivery And Voice With Digital Technology

Enabling Delivery, Voice With Digital Technology

The concept of brand voice took a literal turn this month, with Amazon’s latest rollout, Amazon Polly, an AWS product that provides neural network-based text-to-speech services. And in dining, restaurants are teaming with online platforms to bring diners their favorite menu items. Krispy Kreme, in one case, plans to roll out nationwide delivery – DoorDash will send doughnuts by the dozen as well as boxed coffee. All this, Today in Data.
