There are further Assistant updates regardless of how connected your home might be. Actions now include more advanced media playback for formats beyond music and podcasts. You can listen to clips from TV shows or a white noise generator, for instance, and get control over it like you would any other media format. You can also subscribe to daily updates and other notifications on your phone if you always want the latest news, and there's now a browsing carousel when you have a plethora of visual choices (clearly, this only works on screen-equipped devices). While all these updates are helpful, Custom Device Actions may hold the most potential.
A lot of press about artificial intelligence (AI) focuses on its scary side. Many paint the vision of robots, smart houses (think back to the 1999 Disney movie "Smart House" of a cyborg maid that takes over) and artificial beings crafting our experiences. This fear is not all hype, as Microsoft's AI-powered …
With its long-term accumulation in the areas of software-defined processors and heterogeneous computing, multi-core heterogeneous processor platform launched by Wuxi DSP Technologies has advanced performance power ratio with ease to the software development. The experience of multiple company partners shows that in a short period of time, a small-scale R & D team can quickly develop industry-leading innovations, dramatically shorten the product development cycle, reduce project investment risks and improve market response ability.
Eighty-five per cent of senior executives plan to invest in artificial intelligence (AI) and the internet of things (IoT) by 2020, according to a new survey of UK digital leaders by Deloitte. The findings come from the first edition of a new regular report from Deloitte, the Digital Disruption Index. The index will track investment in digital technologies and create a detailed picture of their impact on the largest and most influential business and public sector bodies. The first edition includes responses from 51 organisations with a combined market value of £229bn. Over half of survey respondents expect that by 2020, they will invest more than £10 million in digital technologies and ways of working – such as AI, cloud, robotics, blockchain, analytics, the IoT, and virtual and augmented reality.
Data plays a crucial role throughout the customer journey, from providing insights to helping tailor the user experience. CMOs can leverage data and emerging technologies to inform creative, improve customer experience, and increase loyalty. Most consumers want more than a great brand--they want a great brand experience. This is a significant departure from the recent past, when consumers often saw value in a brand itself and what it represented--heritage, prestige, or simply name recognition. Many of today's successful brands deliver on all of these.
The holiday season is in full swing, which means we're all whipping out our decorations and decking our homes out for the festivities ahead. That means it's time to get your spook on. Between monstrous masks that evoke the horror icons who haunt our nightmares (thanks, Chucky), and our favorite home decor (like dangling skeletons and that cobweb gunk you can never seem to fully scrape off), you've got plenty of ways to make your house the scariest on the block. But it's 2017, and you don't need to pull out all your decorations just to get in the Halloween spirit. We're living in the future, and all you need is a smart speaker like Google Home or Amazon Echo and a few connected devices to transform any pad into a creepy crypt fit for the damned.
For years Dish Network Corp. DISH 1.00% Chief Executive Charlie Ergen has sought out deals and partnerships with just about every major telecom company, from Sprint Corp. S -2.31% to T-Mobile US Inc. TMUS -0.83% to AT&T Inc. --so far, to no avail. Now, the satellite-television mogul is turning his attention to the technology world and a new--and somewhat surprising--potential partner has emerged: Amazon.com The two men--eccentric billionaires with geek tendencies and shared interest in space and robotics--have gotten to know each other better over the past year and have discussed a partnership to enter the wireless business, according to people familiar with the matter. Among the ideas: Amazon could help finance a network Dish is building focused on the "Internet of Things"--the idea that everything from bikes to Amazon's drones can have web connectivity everywhere. Another idea is that Amazon, as a founding partner of Dish's new wireless network, could offer an option for Prime members to pay a little more a month for a connectivity or phone plan, one of the people said.
In August, Sonos announced it was working on Alexa integration. It would let millions of Sonos owners control their music with their voice and do all of the pizza-ordering, game-playing, life-improving things Amazon's voice assistant can do. The move provided a clear indication of where, after 15 years, Sonos sees its future. And yet seven months later, Alexa has 10,000 skills, and Sonos ain't one of them. Gadgets like Amazon's Echo are starting to take over people's living rooms.
