11/15/19: Update on Voice Assistants

Bob Anstett, Coordinator of Digital Initiatives at the Creation Station in Fort Lauderdale gave a highly informative and entertaining presentation on how Voice Assistants work using some of the new Amazon and Google Products.

The Class video is posted on our YouTube channel–https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vCFjZzby3i8 We learned there’s much more than phones or Echos, Dots or Google Shows and found out about many other products and how to use them.  This year you can use them to turn on and off your Xmas tree lights (with voice activated outlets), operate your microwave, carry on conversations in another language and much more.  We found out how to stay safe, what’s being listened to and by whom, and how to erase our listening and command history.
