MIT research finds that when families interact with a voice-user interface, like a smart speaker or social robot, they are more likely to trust the device, engage with it, and find it to be competent…
Amazon has fixed its voice assistant so that it will not suggest the dangerous “challenge” again.
Alexa can tell you the weather. Siri knows a few jokes. In China, voice-computing company iFlytek built similar smart assistants beloved by users. But its tech is also helping the government listen…
So everything will just work with whatever smart assistant you already have.
Dr. Christine Montross says people with serious mental illnesses in the U.S. are far more likely to be incarcerated than to be treated in a psychiatric hospital. Her new book is Waiting for an Echo.
There are more than 100m Alexa-enabled devices in our homes. But are they fun time-savers or the beginning of an Orwellian nightmare
One part Echo Show, one part Roomba.
The fundamentals that empower us to converse with our devices
With the appearance of voice user interfaces, AI and chatbots, **what is the future of graphical user interfaces** (GUIs)? Don’t worry: Despite some dark predictions, GUIs will stay around for many years to come. Let me share my personal, humble predictions and introduce multi-modal interfaces as a more human way of communication between user and machine. The old wisdom that a picture is w
Do VUI patterns exist? Are they useful? Where can we find them?

How does Refind curate?
It’s a mix of human and algorithmic curation, following a number of steps:
- We monitor 10k+ sources and 1k+ thought leaders on hundreds of topics—publications, blogs, news sites, newsletters, Substack, Medium, Twitter, etc.
- In addition, our users save links from around the web using our Save buttons and our extensions.
- Our algorithm processes 100k+ new links every day and uses external signals to find the most relevant ones, focusing on timeless pieces.
- Our community of active users gets 5 links every day, tailored to their interests. They provide feedback via implicit and explicit signals: open, read, listen, share, add to reading list, save to «Made me smarter», «More/less like this», etc.
- Our algorithm uses these internal signals to refine the selection.
- In addition, we have expert curators who manually curate niche topics.
The result: lists of the best and most useful articles on hundreds of topics.
