Scott Huffman, Google Assistant vice president of engineering, who appeared at LG's news conference as a guest, said he was confident that the artificial intelligence assistant could work in many more household items. Someone, it seems, forgot to ask the Assistant for a weather forecast in CES week, and torrential rains on Tuesday forced the Google tent - which proved not to be waterproof in several places - to close. The two companies are battling for supremacy at this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. So we would get to see a bunch of new digital displays in the market.

The company largely invented the modern smart-speaker category with the summer 2015 launch of the cylindrical Echo speaker. When not in use, you can set it to be a digital picture frame as it displays your pictures from Google photos. With Alexa and Amazon, things would be different.

We're becoming less embarrassed about talking to a machine as well, only 16% of consumers feel uncomfortable using voice commands in front of other people.

Another key factor to the device is its ability to play You Tube videos. Recently, Google showcased "smart displays" featuring their AI. In the meantime, CES 2018 might be filled with smart products until its final day. Some analysts think that Amazon and Google might have lost a few bucks per unit just to move product. The 8-inch model comes with a soft matte finish, while the 10-inch version can be customized with a bamboo finish. The Blade is the first device Vuzix has developed which contains nearly all aspects of display and power source within the frame. "Our Internet of Things products offer some of the most innovative, easy-to-use kitchen appliances that make cooking enjoyable, hassle-free, and smart".

Now, it is learnt that the government is considering buying the missiles through government-to-government route. Netanyahu will also meet his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi and hold delegation level talks.

Tapping on any of the cards will show you what an Assistant app can do, how to invoke it and which devices it's available on. If you've used a smart speaker, you've experienced those times when it rattles off a response but you don't hear all of the details.

The only possible competitor to Alexa at this point is Google Home, but Alexa has a huge lead: over 4,000 devices can now be controlled by Alexa, the company said, while Google's total is around 1,500. For now, they will rely on their partners Lenovo, LG, JBL, and Sony to produce the displays. With the number of actions one can perform, Google also announced Actions, which includes over a million features built by Google and by developers that can be discovered via a new directory page on your Android or iPhone.

The new range of products and security systems will provide support for Google Assistant, which will allow homeowners to configure lighting, plugs and other home utilities through the Assistant's smartphone app. Regarding the device specifications LG hasn't spoken a lot. Experts expect as more devices come online, the threat they pose will likely grow.
