The partnership with Hyundai allows people to control their Genesis vehicles using voice-activated assistance, from starting their car to raising the temperature

Amazon Echo is an exciting innovation in the world of artificial intelligence and smart home devices. It creates interconnectivity in the home, connecting your sound system, thermostat and various technologies in one device.

It can all be controlled with voice activation as well, taking smart home features to the next level. Alexa is the “name” of the voice activated system, and by saying that keyword, you can wake up the machine and have it do your bidding. All in all, the system is very much like Apple's Siri or Microsoft's Cortana, except it's integrated into your home.
