Re: Let's hope synthetic speech doesn't catch up too quickly...
It is yet to realize its' full potential--no question.  But Google is not sitting idly by either.

I don't know if I'm an outlier, but Cortana was one of the very first things I disabled in Windows 10.

Cortina, though, is a set in the right direction as SIRI is becoming much more smarter and as we're seeing further development w/Machine Language as epitomized by what IBM is trying to do.    It is starting to frankly get scary.....

Re: Let's hope synthetic speech doesn't catch up too quickly...
@kq4ym in what ways do you find Cortina particularly helpful? BTW one of the things I noticed is that all the voice applications are given a female voice and name. I wonder if any real market research went into that or if it was just assumed that it was the way to go. Certainly, if the Star Trek computer (mentioned here) is the model, that could explain that assumption. But I should think there's something more to it.

Re: Let's hope synthetic speech doesn't catch up too quickly...
Yep, there still seems to be a very long road ahead to get reliable biometrics to work. Voice recognition seems to be magic, but not so much when you find it's hardly fool proof. Having Windows 10 recently installed on my laptop, I found Cortina clever, but not clever enough that I'd want to rely on the technology for security without some other backup.

Re: Let's hope synthetic speech doesn't catch up too quickly...
I am curious @Joe if the current tech players---based on your deep knowledge of that space--have the technologies available to counter the challenges you've outlined.    if Fingerprints can be replicated, nothing is sacrosanct.

Re: Let's hope synthetic speech doesn't catch up too quickly...
The yardstick, to me, @Joe is when Google Voice continues to be able transcribe text accurately--and it is also able to transcribe non-english messages.   When these two milestones are reached, I think we've reached critical mass.   We're not there--yet.

Re: Multifactor authentication is going to be the future...
Between buying a $ 35 Amazon FireTV Stick, a Roku TV Stick, an Amazon Kindle Tablet that allows one to watch anything independently (I know @Susan may have some reservations :)) what is clear is that such issues can be fixed with little effort.

Re: Multifactor authentication is going to be the future...
I thought Apple TV was making strides towards this--Did I miss it or is it one of the "nice to haves' that is yet to be brought to bear?    The march to "voice" is here--no question about it.   The question is are we ready?

Interesting! Didn't realize so many are in development. I tinkered with a few some years back, but found them to be inaccurate and impractical. Very curious to see if they've improved the technology notably.
