Digital Assistants... what are they, what are the benefits, what are the drawbacks, and where are they going? The big elephant in the room is privacy, which we talk in detail about. The issue includes the case where Samsung TVs were recording audio even when the feature was disabled. We also discuss positives such as hands free driving directions, automatic AI infused assistance with Google Now, and being able to easily manage music vocally with the Amazon Echo. We talk about future expectations for digital assistants and if they will replace other forms of interfacing with electronic devices such as the keyboard.
