Google Assistant Vs Alexa: Which AI Will Control Your Home?

#artificialintelligence

Google Pixel Tomorrow, Oct 4, is Google's day with the tech giant expected to launch products from new Pixel smartphones to showcase what Android can do ( and already leaked as below), to the much hyped about smart home hub, the Google Home speaker. This product, which will make use of its voice-enabled AI Google Assistant, is meant to be a direct rival to Amazon's Alexa. But as voice-control heats up, and consumers grow more comfortable running their homes by just saying what they want, tech companies are eager to be the app used to run people's lives. Images of Google Pixel phones were leaked late last night by a retailer Carphone Warehouse, before images were taken down. California has just given the greenlight to self-driving cars--without drivers.


Meet Amazon's new Echo devices and Alexa hardware: Prices, features, release dates

ZDNet

At a surprise event in Seattle, Amazon announced updates to a few Echo-branded devices and unveiled what seems like a dozen entirely new Alexa products. From a new microwave to a wall clock (not joking), Amazon introduced basically everything but the kitchen sink during its event. Almost all these new devices come with built-in Alexa voice control, or they are designed to work with both existing and new Echo products. We've delved into all the details and have rounded up what matters most: Prices, features, and release dates. The updates include the voice-controlled Echo Dot, Echo Show, and Echo Plus, all three of which now come with sound improvements, though the new Echo Dot also comes with a redesign.

Deep learning revolutionizes conversational AI

To learn more about conversational AI, check out Yishay Carmiel's session Applications of neural-based models for conversational speech at the Artificial Intelligence Conference in San Francisco, Sept. 17-20, 2017. The dream of speech recognition is a system that truly understands humans speaking--in different environments, with a variety of accents and languages. For decades, people tackled this problem with no success. Pinpointing effective strategies for creating such a system seemed impossible. In the past years, however, breakthroughs in AI and deep learning have changed everything in the quest for speech recognition.
