Emil & Jacob Creative Director & Senior Designer
Meet Q, The First Genderless Voice
Boot up the options for your digital voice assistant of choice, and you’re likely to find two options for the gender you prefer interacting with: male or female. The problem is, that binary choice isn’t an accurate representation of the complexities of gender. That’s why Virtue, The creative agency by VICE, created Q – the world’s first genderless voice for voice AI. Created for a future where we are no longer defined by gender.
