The history of technology has "moments" that change everything. The advent of the internet was definitely a tech moment - so was the introduction of the iPhone. They changed how we communicate, learn, share, and make connections (among many other things, but let's keep the list short here). And at the end of 2022, we had another tech moment: generative AI models went mainstream with the release of ChatGPT. And while it's still unclear what kind of transformations generative AI models will thrust upon us, most agree that it will be huge.
Being at the forefront of the technological landscape, when it changes, Modev changes along with it. And it's in that spirit that Modev has rebranded its highly regarded and attended VOICE Summit to VOICE &AI.
AI is nothing new to Modev; it's just taking center stage.
Modev's conferences have always brought together developers, designers, marketers, and investors to expand the reach of conversational interfaces and redefine what's possible. VOICE & AI will enable stakeholders at all levels within the generative AI space to learn, share, and make connections so they can build, deploy, and market the tools to create the next generation of conversational experiences together.
So does that mean concretely?
It means focusing on the most cutting-edge topics in the generative AI space. It means hosting industry-leading keynotes, hands-on workshops, API onboarding, structured networking, hackathons, meetups, and… parties. Fun has always been at the heart of Modev's events.
As Modev founder and emerging tech market builder, Pete Erickson said, "With trends pointing to Generative AI, our rebranded VOICE & AI conference comes at a pivotal time and serves as the ultimate gathering to connect industry builders and leaders in this important space that impacts us all so they may share insights and tangible lessons that can be used to drive continued growth. We believe human connection is vital in the era of digital transformation, and what better way to grow and connect with the AI industry's biggest influencers and innovators than through VOICE & AI."
And what are those cutting-edge topics in generative AI today? Here are some of the topics that will be discussed at VOICE & AI 2023.
- Large Language Model APIs

Sustainability in Tech
That last point on the list (Sustainability and Tech) is more than just an afterthought.
Underpinning its mission of growing the reach of generative AI is Modev's deep commitment to sustainability. Tech must flourish in a healthy and sane environment, and AI can help us create a more sustainable world. One simply cannot divorce technological development from the environment.
That's why, as part of VOICE & AI, Modev has made a zero-carbon pledge and will offer scholarships, recognition, and accessibility at all levels during the conference. One of VOICE & AI's core goals and values is to build a more sustainable tech industry, so future generations can also reap its benefits - it's only fair, right?
