that voice assistants would just be about supporting more and more variety of questions, and connecting to more devices. But it’s been a steady slog towards expanding the number of languages to cater to the global population, stringing multiple commands in one smooth flow (without sounding like a robot which means detecting and parsing many many variants), and even identifying changing languages in communication. Things that happen in regular conversation just are more complicated than we would like them to be on paper.

But it’s been more news of collaboration, visual cues for passengers, support contracts for maintenance, downtime, ensuring availability of the fleet, etc. Physical objects break down and need repair. Roads are not standard, and we basically just connect them every which way we can.
