Stanford Medicine offers a Partnership in AI-Assisted Care. Projects are underway at the University of Illinois, MIT AgeLab, Georgia Tech, and no doubt other university programs around the US. AI is a fundamental machine-learning element in voice technology, which is here to stay, despite the noisy racket about Amazon.  The AI role in deriving predictive analytics from accumulated data is just beginning to reveal its utility. 

We speak, therefore we are. When 60% of homes in the US have smart speakers of some type, talking to tech is here to stay. And for those a physical disability or those with low or no vision, consider the independence enabled by AI-enabled commands to smart home technology.
