Podcast #855: Roku Wireless Speakers and AI

"This solves the conundrum that lies at the heart of modern technology, threading its way from your phone to your dishwasher to your air conditioner: “Currently you need to be smart to use a smartphone,” ...At this stage AI is just the tip of the iceberg of what’s going to happen in the future, When we talk about AI many people think of voice assistants, but it’s much more than that. It’s going to be voice plus vision plus gesture recognition, plus context, plus knowledge … You need to understand what the user wants, in a seamless way.”

Roku Wireless Speakers and AI

We initially thought these would be for surround sound, but they aren't. They're basically a soundbar replacement. If that's all they're for, it's kinda meh. If they show potential for what could come in the future, two in the front (or 3), two in the back, a subwoofer, etc, it could be pretty awesome. Maybe even see some bundles with Roku TVs.

But it’s a good beginning.”

 

How would you use AI to reinvent/reimagine how we interact with our home theaters?

I didn't see a link posted for Home Assistant mentioned by listener Glenn from South Africa, so I've left it here.

BTW, Ara - your comment about older folks and Wheel of Fortune cracked me up. My mom (almost 91) watches that, and pretty much only that, for her TV viewing.
