Cantina encourages collaboration across the company and strives to make everyone feel included in its success.

Why prototype? Prototypes are artifacts that we can use in the process of creating things. We use them for ide...

So in a quiet house with equal proximity to a voice-recognition assistant like Alexa or Siri, what makes the difference between an answer and a virtual shrug? What happens when people with accents try to talk to Sire, Echo, and Google home. For most modern voice assistants, ...
