Artifical Solutions, azienda esperta nell’interazione uomo-macchina attraverso il linguaggio naturale, sta per lanciare Indigo, un nuovo assistente vocale che sarà disponibile domani per Android e Windows Phone; esso è in grado di ricordare le preferenze dell’utente anche quando si cambia piattaforma e di approcciarsi ad esso in modo naturale, senza frasi fatte.
Non sappiamo ancora quali lingue supporterà questa applicazione, ma è sicuramente un progetto interessante; per maggiori informazioni potete visitare il sito ufficiale della app, oppure leggere il comunicato stampa a seguire:
Hello Indigo – Artificial Solutions Launches The Ubiquitous Personal Assistant
The world’s first truly personal assistant app to follow the users across devices
Mobile World Congress, Barcelona, 25th February 2013 – Artificial Solutions (www.artificial-solutions.com), the natural language interaction (NLI) specialist that enables users to have a meaningful, humanlike interaction with technology, today launched Indigo, the world’s first intelligent personal assistant app to offer consumers personalization and persistence across platforms and devices.
· Highly intelligent personal assistant app with powerful NLI capabilities and broad range of features
· Able to remember an individual’s preferences to offer truly personal approach
· Capable of operating and remembering across multiple device eco-systems
· Supported by SDK with intuitive, user friendly graphical interface that eliminates the need for developers to be linguistic experts and allows partners to extend the capability of Indigo
· Launched by the leading provider of NLI technology and winner of the Loebner award for AI
Capable of doing everything a user might expect from sending a message or giving directions to playing a tune, Indigo allows users to take her with them as they switch devices. Unlike other personal assistant apps that are trapped on one device, Indigo has a memory, she knows a user’s preferences – their likes and dislikes, and because she knows who they are, she can follow them as they switch devices from a computer to a smartphone or tablet, regardless of manufacturer or operating system used. In addition, Indigo’s persistence capabilities enable a user to continue a conversation as they switch devices.
Expanding on the intelligent capabilities already available in Artificial Solutions’ enterprise virtual assistants such as memory, contextual understanding and the ability to handle conversation interruptions, Indigo is highly intuitive and able to ask for more information, if she thinks an important element such as time, date or person is missing. With Indigo users experience a much more humanlike conversation, which dramatically improves the usability of a personal assistant app.
“Most people today have a computer, a smartphone and a tablet, frequently operating on different platforms. What’s the point of having a virtual assistant that isn’t able to follow you around and remember your preferences?” says Lawrence Flynn, CEO of Artificial Solutions. “Indigo was born out of our development work for device manufacturers. She is the first step in our vision to move virtual personal assistants from merely a gimmick only offered with specific devices to one that helps across ecosystems, wherever technology and humans interact.”
Powered by Artificial Solutions award winning, patented natural language interaction technology that is able to interpret multiple input methods such as voice, text and gesture, Indigo is a cloud based app that also has persistence capabilities that will allow users to continue conversations with Indigo as they switch between their devices.
Developers can also create apps for Indigo using Artificial Solutions’ SDK, which includes Teneo Studio an intuitive tool that eliminates the need for developers to be linguistic experts. Using the SDK, Indigo can interact with any internet enabled device, allowing developers to enhance her skills even further whether it’s recording a TV program or controlling the temperature in a user’s house, Indigo’s capabilities are only limited by the developer’s imagination.
