Cortana & Alexa Show Us All How To Be Better Humans
Alert: Major power couple alert! Microsoft’s voice-controlled assistant Cortana has been revealed as a partner to Amazon’s Alexa. The unlikely pairing has so many people saying “oh, of course” that you would have thought we thought of it already.

Just like how we would ask a friend about hiking advice for example, but maybe not about how to cook a great spaghetti bolognese, we all prefer to get out information from an expert source. The voice-first partnership is a landmark joining of each AI technology’s strengths.
