Artificial Solutions Cites Persistence As Key Component In The Future Of Personal Assistants
LAS VEGAS, May 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ShowStoppers CTIA -- Artificial Solutions ( www.artificial-solutions.com), the natural language interaction (NLI) specialist that enables users to have a meaningful, humanlike interaction with technology, asserts that persistence is a critical component in the future of personal assistant apps.
The latest persistence capabilities of its personal assistant app Indigo ( www.hello-indigo.com) allow users to pick up a conversation where it last left off – even as they move from a tablet, mobile device or work computer. Artificial Solutions believes that combining the ability to persist conversations with an artificial memory and the ability to understand a user's preferences, likes and dislikes is the next key step in the journey that will ultimately allow people to control all aspects of technology in their lives through a single assistant app that is personalized to the user.
Since personal assistant apps started to appear on the scene two years ago, many users have become reliant on them for travel, weather, and other reminders throughout the day. However, the majority of these are command-driven; they need short, command style inputs to operate them. Indigo already takes this to the next level by adding the use of natural language, where by user talks normally to the mobile, as opposed to a series of commands, whilst at the same time expanding the assistant's understanding of an individual's user preferences. It also allows for other intelligent features such as topic switching, for instance enabling the user to interrupt making a diary entry, to check the weather for that day and still go back to where they left off making the appointment.
Persistence, remembering the conversation and user preferences across devices and platforms, allows the user to take this a step further such as finding a location on a tablet at home, but asking their smartphone once in the car for directions, without having to give any additional explanation. Transpose these ideas to the near future where many more devices and appliances are internet enabled and it's easy to see why persistence is a vital component to the next generation of personal assistant apps and a key step in the journey towards a truly ubiquitous personal assistant.
