The Tech Blog Writer Podcast - Inspired Tech Startup Stories & Interviews With Tech Leaders, CEOs, Entrepreneurs and Innovators On This Daily Tech Podcast


Aug 18, 2017

Regular listeners will remember that I recently interviewed Adobe’s Colin Morris about how voice-based interfaces have suddenly become a significant tool for marketers. But, it’s not just voice: marketers are gravitating both to voice and text-based computer conversation (e.g. chatbots) to engage with customers.

PullString is the only company enabling conversations on Amazon Echo, Alexa Google Home, as well as text-based computer conversations on Microsoft’s Skype and Facebook’s Messenger.

As these platforms surge in popularity with consumers, PullString is seeing a similar surge in demand from companies that want to build branded chatbot experiences on these platforms.

Today's guest is Oren Jacob, and he is the CEO and co founder of Pullstring but also has a very rich history,

Steve Jobs and Ed Catmull had personally chosen Oren to lead Pixar’s internal tech team as CTO, where he worked on Toy Story, Toy Story 2, A Bug’s Life, and Finding Nemo.
