AppleInsider offers an abbreviated history of how we got here and the capabilities of these assistants and their devices in anticipation of HomePod. What do these things do? What do people use them for? And what is Apple doing differently? Amazon's Alexa assistant began life on the Amazon Fire Phone. The idea was to have a voice assistant that competed with Siri on the iPhone and iPad. The Fire Phone didn't literally catch fire (unlike some phones) but it may as well have been named for the money Amazon set ablaze in developing and shipping it. The one good outcome for Amazon has been the phoenix that is Alexa, rising from the ashes of the Fire phone. Alexa and Echo get conflated a lot. Echo is the name for Amazon's line of hardware that … [Read more...] about Stacking up Apple HomePod, Amazon Echo and Google Home

In early 2014, Srikanth Thirumalai met with Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos. Thirumalai, a computer scientist who’d left IBM in 2005 to head Amazon’s recommendations team, had come to propose a sweeping new plan for incorporating the latest advances in artificial intelligence into his division. He arrived armed with a “six-pager.” Bezos had long ago decreed that products and services proposed to him must be limited to that length, and include a speculative press release describing the finished product, service, or initiative. Now Bezos was leaning on his deputies to transform the company into an AI powerhouse.

But in recent years, there has been a revolution in the field; machine learning has become much more effective, especially in a supercharged form known as deep … [Read more...] about How Amazon Rebuilt Itself Around Artificial Intelligence

Orders were communicated to Littler via a handset, which also displayed a countdown timer showing how many seconds he had to pick the order and put it in his trolley.According to a BBC News report, the handset “tracked Mr Littler’s picking rate and sent his performance to managers. If it was too low, he was told he could face disciplinary … [Read more...] about Amazon says its warehouse workers know what they’re getting into
