5 ways Google Home has stolen my heart from Alexa

  5 ways Google Home has stolen my heart from Alexa Google Assistant knows what I need and listens to me -- plus it's great in the bedroom.It was easy to do -- after all, Alexa's screens look old and tired compared to the Nest Hub's gorgeous displays, and my Google Nest Mini instantly clicked with the rest of my smart home devices. The Google-powered brains behind those pitch-perfect speakers and gleaming LCDs also played a sound part in wooing me away from the oh-so-average Alexa.

I ’ve been dancing my whole life But you just beg to see me dance just one more time Ooh I See you see you seen you every time And oh my I , I like your style You , you make me make me make me wanna cry And now I beg to see YouTube. • Tones and I - Dance Monkey (Lyrics). Unique Vibes.

“ Dance Monkey ” is a song by Australian singer Tones and I , released as the second single from her debut EP The Kids Are Coming. I ’d been busking for seven or eight hours, and I had done six encores. So many people get inspired in the moment and just make up bullshit to try to give you hope.

Google is asking users to help teach its AI how to speak. A new “Experiments with Google” called LipSync asks users to lip sync a small part of “Dance Monkey” by Tones and I, Android Police reports.

LipSync, which is built by YouTube for Chrome on desktop, will score your performance. It will then feed the video to Google’s AI — it doesn’t record any audio.

Google plans to use the video clips to teach its AI how human faces move when we speak. This could inform tools for people with ALS and speech impairments. Someday, AI might be able to guess what they are saying by observing their facial movements and then speak out loud on the person’s behalf.

Google already has several accessibility features -- from Android apps for the hard of hearing to accessible locations highlighted in Maps. This AI speech recognition capability could lead to useful additions.
