Smart speakers come with voice commands. Instead of typing on your keyboards, you talk to your speaker, which will answer you back, and sometimes take it a step further by ordering items, setting up your appointments, or arming your home security systems. The futuristic technology we saw in the Star Trek movies is now looking like a reality in our homes!
The variety of voice commands and the quality of responses by artificial intelligence have improved a lot in the last few years, but there is room for more. How much the speakers can access and control are key to their success. After all, smart speakers are not smart unless people give them the logic to perform their specified tasks.
Paired with ultra-fast wireless broadband connections, technology is on the horizon for household electronics, audio/TV, appliances, security systems, and more, to be controlled by artificial intelligence.
