Android Things assisting with AI at CES 2018

Android Things assisting with AI at CES 2018”

JBL, which is also in the race with its rival companies, announced a new range of headphones that come along with built-in Google Assistant. Only Siri missed out on the party, though Apple's assistant tends to be more of a lone wolf, anyway.

Meanwhile, I'm eager see what other products Amazon, Google and others trot out this week at tech's biggest trade show. It's not about keeping them in the guarded realms of their own product lines. Among them are a series of its Echo speakers, including an entry-level option (Echo Dot), a portable speaker (Echo Tap), and Echo Look, a style assistant that can take 360-degree selfies of an outfit. Why can't it be, for instance, your Google Home Mini conveying your instructions from a more distant place?

That's what the results of a new survey from NPR and Edison Research confirm, as devices like Amazon's Echo and Google's Home continue to grow in popularity. "We are continuing to talk to Google", Whitten said.

Panasonic also said Monday it will put Alexa in its next-generation infotainment systems.

Google has also added animations to complement some of the more personality-driven features of the Google Assistant. This is a huge boost for Amazon, even if it makes things a little awkward with Microsoft's Cortana. Of course, this would entail booming sales, among other factors, but Travers maintains optimism when asked about the future of the smart glasses with Alexa integration. Whether that's TVs, smart displays, washing machines and even cars - for Alexa and Google Assistant to be so ubiquitous that you just use it without thinking, they have to follow you everywhere. The Google Assistant recently pushed to LG's Smart Speakers. This year, Google is determined to make CES attendees - and the world - forget about Alexa. It also includes a search function as well as category-wise distribution of various Google Assistant skills. It brought Alexa to its products in May of previous year. This means that, at least for some products, you won't have to choose sides, and can control devices using whichever voice assistant you're in the mood for. This latest move by Amazon seems more like an attempt to challenge Cortana, rather than work with it, unless it proves to be the first chapter in showing how Alexa and Cortana will be mutual supportive.
