I do not know if you have heard of Viv yet, but if not you very likely will in the near future.
What is Viv? Viv is a new AI assistant created by the co-founder of Apple’s Siri. As with Siri, it utilizes voice User Interface (UI) to make queries and take actions. The first open demo of Viv occurred this morning at TechCrunch Disrupt NY.
While impressive in this demo, the power of Viv will be fully realized as developers are able to add more services to the platform. According to their web site Viv is:
- Radically simplifying the world by providing an intelligent interface to everything
- an artificial intelligence platform that enables developers to distribute their products through an intelligent, conversational interface. It’s the simplest way for the world to interact with devices, services and things everywhere. Viv is taught by the world, knows more than it is taught, and learns every day.
