GE is IoT enabling most of their kitchen appliances, and unifying communication with them by a common "assistant" that they call "Geneva", to join Amazon's Alexa (and Apple Siri, Google Assistant, Microsoft Cortana etc).

Hopefully they put a serious effort in securing those appliances... Expert's recommendation: keep your IoT appliances of separate WiFi from your computers.
