Abstract

Smart speakers such as the Amazon Echo Dot and the Google Home Mini are the most important new product category of recent years and are having a major impact on American culture and society. This is because they are very functional (they can do so many different things) and because they rely on the power of speech, which makes them easy to use. There is a question of privacy involved with these devices, but millions of people who use smart speakers seem to feel that the benefits of smart speakers are more important than privacy concerns.
