Expanding Xbox Voice Commands to Hundreds of Millions of Smart Devices: Xbox Now Connects with Cortana and Alexa-Enabled Devices – Xbox Wire

Here at Team Xbox, we’ve had a long history in offering voice controls as a way to interact with your Xbox console through Kinect and headsets. Today, starting with select Xbox U.S. Insiders, we’re expanding voice support by introducing the Xbox Skill, which enables you to navigate and interact with Xbox One using voice commands through your Cortana and Alexa-enabled devices.

With the Xbox Skill, you can use voice commands to power your Xbox One console, adjust volume, launch games and apps, start and stop broadcasts on Mixer, capture screenshots, and more. It’s the fastest way to get into your games and one of the easiest ways to interact with your console for everyday tasks. For example, if you have the skill enabled on your Echo and you’re a part of the Insider preview, just say “Alexa, start Rocket League.” and this command will automatically turn on your console, sign you in, and launch your game.

The Xbox Skill integrates with your Cortana and Alexa-enabled device such as a Windows 10 PC, Amazon Echo, Harman Kardon Invoke, Sonos One, or Cortana and Alexa apps on iOS and Android, enabling voice commands to control your Xbox One console.

For Xbox Insiders* in the U.S. who want to try the Xbox Skill with Cortana or Alexa, here’s how to get started:

If you use Cortana:

  1. Sign into the Xbox you want to control.
  2. On your Windows 10 PC, click here and sign in with your Microsoft account to link the skill.
  3. Try your first command! “Hey Cortana, tell Xbox to open Netflix.”

If you use Alexa:

  1. Sign into the Xbox you want to control.
  2. Click here, sign in with your Amazon Account, and click Enable.
  3. Sign in with your Microsoft account to link the skill.
  4. Let Alexa discover your console, then follow the instructions to pair your console with Alexa.
  5. Try your first command! “Alexa, start Rocket League.”

Wondering what else the Xbox Skill can do? Just say “Ask Xbox what can I say?” to discover more commands for your console. For a full list of commands, troubleshooting assistance, and to give the team feedback and ideas, you can visit the Xbox Insider Subreddit.

As always, your feedback is important to us and our partners as we continue to evolve this experience and grow our voice integration across devices, digital assistants and voice services.

*Note to Xbox Insiders: We will be rolling the Xbox Skill out to Xbox Insider rings gradually. If the Digital Assistant setting is visible on your console in Settings -> Devices, then you are currently eligible to test the Xbox Skill. If it doesn’t appear, then please be patient as we are working quickly to add more Insider rings to the beta.

Wanted – Good spec and condition Chromebook

Thanks buddy. crazy how time is flying so not long to go now. She’s given me the go ahead to sell her mint laptop as well which I’m about to advertise here which still has 1.5yr on-site warranty.

The Chromebook is a 16GB Internal I believe. It’s a beautiful machine. I can do it for £230 delivered and that is mainly because it’s in brand new condition. I cannot see a single hairline scratch on it or thumbprint. My wife and eye have serious OCD when it comes to keeping our tech in the best condition. Me being in IT, I’m always using Antec spray to clean my devices.

I appreciate the price may be out of your budget but just wanted to see if anyone would want it at this price. I’ll upload some pics for you now and any marks that come up, please ignore as it’s most likely my shadows,lol

AI and fish farming: High-tech help for a sushi and sashimi favorite in Japan – Asia News Center

The institute’s Shirahama Station – about 80 kilometers (50 miles) south of Osaka – has long played a crucial role in the farming of 10 species of fish, including Red Sea Bream. It hatches larvae and raises them in tanks to “fingerlings” – juvenile fish that have developed fins and scales but haven’t yet grown more than 10 centimeters long or about the length of a human finger.

The Institute sells about 12 million Red Sea Bream fingerlings, or about 70 percent of its annual production and about 20 percent of the total market, to offshore fish farms around the country where they grow to full size.

To produce so many fingerlings requires a lot of human effort. Every New Year and Fall, these tiny fish are pumped out of their nursery tanks and onto four conveyor belts where they are hand sorted by teams of three who ensure each is the correct size and free of deformities. Counting the fingerlings and culling out the odd-shaped one is a laborious quality control task that requires knowledge and concentration.

Still, Naoki Taniguchi – who manages the Institute’s Larval Rearing Division and is Deputy General Manager of the Aquaculture Technology and Production Center – doesn’t regard it as the best use of his highly skilled workforce.

“Some members of our staff have as much as 30 years of experience,” he says. “Sorting work is very time-consuming and takes up to eight hours a day during the busy shipping periods.”

He wants a better way and says: “At a time when it is exceeding difficult to attract talented people, we need to mechanize processes to work efficiently.”

Taniguchi and his research colleagues think a combination of image analysis, AI, and ML technologies can result in a solution to replicate what human sorters do now. And, the Institute is currently developing such an automated sorting system using Microsoft’s Azure Machine Learning Studio and Azure IoT Hub. In the meantime, the same Microsoft technologies have been used to ease another pain point: the need for a person to constantly adjust the pump flow that delivers the fingerlings to the conveyor belt. If the flow is too high, sorters will fall behind. If the flow is too low, production times will suffer.

Microsoft Japan has addressed this with Toyota Tsusho Corporation – which also played a role in the Institute’s groundbreaking Blue Fin Tuna research. Together, they have developed an AI-driven sorting system that calculates optimum flows and makes automatic adjustments.

This software solution uses image analysis to count the number of fish on the conveyor belt and the spaces between them. It also uses ML to understand how the sorters complete their task at different volumes of fingerlings.

“If we can use AI to automate and mechanize simple judgment tasks, we can reduce the number of workers needed from three to two, which will allow that third person to do other work or make it easier for the workers to take breaks and improve work efficiency,” says Taniguchi.

The Institute believes that freeing up the time for more rewarding tasks will improve work practices for current employees. Perhaps, more importantly, it will make aquaculture a more attractive career choice for a new generation.
