In fewer than six years, the smart-alecky deputy has vanished from shopper electronics interest to a practically pervasive tech phenomenon. Launched alongside the first Echo device, Alexa has helped define a new paradigm of spokesperson computing, alongside Apple’s Siri and Google’s Assistant.
According to recent multitudes, 29% of U.S. internet users also use a smart-alecky speaker. With that demographic Amazon has been totally prevailing, with approximately 70% of all U.S. smart-alecky orator owners squandering an Echo. Alexa’s reach spread far beyond that, of course, to all manner of smart home designs, laptops, cars, phones, wearables and TVs. We’re evoked to announce today that the heads of Amazon’s Alexa team will be joining us at Disrupt this September examined the smart-alecky assistant’s increment and the future of voice compute.
