Apple sold more smart speakers in Q1 than Google did, but its lead might be short lived

PCWorld

Apple sold 2.4 million smart speakers in the U.S. market during first quarter of 2021, according to the market research firm Omdia, beating Google's sales by 100,000 units during the same period. The firm estimates the new Apple HomePod mini accounted for 91 percent of Apple's U.S. smart speaker sales during that time. Apple's share of smart speaker shipments in the U.S. market reached 17.8 percent during the first quarter, a 9 percent increase year over year. But Omdia estimates there were 75 million smart speakers based on Google Assistant on the market at the end of 2020, compared to just 10 million based on Apple's Siri. And Amazon dominates both of those competitors, with a current installed base of 141 million smart speakers using its Alexa voice assistant.


Conversational Banking Is a Competitive Necessity in a Remote-Everything World

#artificialintelligence

For financial institutions that have yet to adopt conversational banking, the potential user base already exists. Nearly two-in-five U.S. adults are now users of smart speakers, such as Amazon Alexa or Google Home. In November 2020, eMarketer estimated that 128.0 million people in the US used a voice assistant – 44.2% of internet users and 38.5% of the total population. Consumers are programming themselves to find things using their voices. They're doing less button-pressing and more speaking to control their entertainment experiences, for example--from Amazon Fire TV to Apple TV.

Apple TV is now available on Google TV

Engadget

Google and Apple are following through on their promise to play nice with each other. After announcing in December that the Apple TV app would come to Chromecasts with Google TV, the companies have shared today that the service is now globally available. With the integration, you'll not only be able to use Apple's app from your Chromecast's interface, but you can also access your purchased films and shows, as well as personalized suggestions without having to cast your iPhone to the TV. In the US, Google TV users will see Apple Originals in their personalized recommendations and search results. You'll also be able to ask the Google Assistant to open the Apple app or play one of its exclusive titles.


The Morning After: CES 2021 starts with drones, 8K TVs and robots

Engadget

The last time I wasn't in Las Vegas for CES, the iPhone didn't exist yet. A virtual show means that this year the Engadget team is experiencing things more like our readers. The upside is that it's easier to get a broad view of everything going on, and I didn't have to figure out how to pack a PS5 in my luggage. The downside is I'm not seeing any sweet new TVs in person. It's the smallest of sacrifices, but being able to hop on live video and chat/argue with the team over our favorite picks is helping to fill the gaps.


Advanced AI to manage your home appliances soon - ET Telecom

#artificialintelligence

The researchers from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have developed a system that could bring deep learning neural networks to new -- and much smaller -- places, like the tiny computer chips in wearable medical devices, household appliances, and the 250 billion other objects that constitute the IoT. The system, called MCUNet, designs compact neural networks that deliver unprecedented speed and accuracy for deep learning on IoT devices, despite limited memory and processing power. The technology could facilitate the expansion of the IoT universe while saving energy and improving data security. MCUNet has two components needed for "tiny deep learning" -- the operation of neural networks on microcontrollers. One component is TinyEngine, an inference engine that directs resource management, akin to an operating system.

Machine learning and Doppler vibrometer monitor household appliances – Physics World

#artificialintelligence

A way of monitoring household appliances by using machine learning to analyse vibrations on a wall or ceiling has been developed by researchers in the US. Their system could be used to create centralized smart home systems without the need for individual sensors in each object. What is more, the technology could help track energy use, identify electrical faults and even remind people to empty the dishwasher. "Recognizing home activities can help computers better understand human behaviours and needs, with the hope of developing a better human-machine interface," says team member and information scientist Cheng Zhang of Cornell University. The system, dubbed VibroSense, comprises two core parts: a laser Doppler vibrometer and a deep learning model, which is a type of machine learning system.
