Voice and speech recognition appear everywhere in today's devices. You'll find great implementations in Amazon Alexa, Apple Siri, OK Google and Microsoft Cortana. The dream of talking to your computer, telling it what to do, and then sitting back and watching it carry out the request is now a reality.
