Viv recently debuted its much heralded next-generation smart assistant platform that, if only it were to be adopted at critical mass, would Change The World For the Better. This platfrm’s interface is an intelligent agent that you talk to — much like Apple’s Siri or Amazon’s Alexa.
Viv wants to enable and conjure up a new world from the thin air of our current infrastructure — ask it to send $20 to your friend Adam for the drinks last night, and presto, Viv parses and then executes your request.
Here’s how. The logic is not that complicated. Everything you need to execute your desires is already available through your phone and its associated apps and APIs: Your calendar knows about the drinks last night, your contact database knows who Adam is, and your Venmo app can pay Adam. Viv not only understands and parses your speech (thanks to at-scale, in-the-cloud natural language technology from Nuance), it also writes a program to do your bidding in real time (that’s the tricky bit), and it executes that program to complete your task.
What Do You Think?
Are you impressed? Are you ready? Do you think this disruptive technology platform can replace Google and Apple?
