Beware the rise of the intelligent assistant armed with predictive technology
Thu 3 Apr 2014
Venture Beat’s Devindra Hardawar interviews Tim Tuttle, the founder of Expect Labs, who has been looking at how to take predictive technology out of smartphones and into a wide range of devices and creating what he calls “special-purpose intelligent assistants that let you easily find information you need in specific domains”.
“Over the next few years you are going to see predictive tech and intelligent assistants begin to appear everywhere,” Tuttle told me via email. “Not only will they be in most apps you use — they will also be in your car, in your living room, and in your office. They will also be inside the enterprise — helping doctors better treat patients, helping customer support reps more quickly assist their customers, helping a mobile workforce coordinate in the field, etc.”
