Beyond the voice assistants that we know and as they are implemented in our smartphones, Google, Apple, Amazon and consort still offer only the beginnings in terms of voice assistance.
Artificial intelligence is more and more present in our daily lives and this is also done through these voice assistants. By 2020, studies show that you will probably speak more to your voice assistant than your loved ones, which is hardly surprising when we already see the place that takes the smartphone in our lives.
Needs that do not only concern humans
The voice assistant will be present in our daily lives by responding to the needs that are generally given to humans. Indeed, this assistant will be able to bring you comfort in case of need or a presence if you need companionship.
Finally, this voice assistant can be completely compared to a real human being. We can cite the presentation of the famous Japanese project called Gatebox.
At the heart of this presentation, we note in particular a young man who undertakes his daily routine by integrating the voice assistant as if it were his partner. He will therefore warn of his departure, and possibly report his delay.
The voice assistant is then able to answer him that he is eager to see it thanks to his artificial intelligence. It may seem totally unbelievable, but it is possible and it is part of our future. In this video, we note that this young man enjoy the company of his voice assistant with whom he watches TV before going to bed.
Voice assistants! but real conversations
Evolution is present and this shows in particular the technological advances that have been clearly made in recent years. Of course, the example mentioned above with the Gatebox is extreme, but it is what represents at best what will be able to achieve your virtual assistant.
In any case, we can see right now that the voice is present in our daily lives. Microsoft, for example, works daily on the possibility of improving the fluency of its voice assistant. Currently, voice assistants can not handle a fluent classical conversation, and are limited to answering based on an obvious choice.
For example, the voice assistant is currently able to tell you if he prefers red or blue, but is not yet able to tell you to do this or that. People working on voice assistants currently will have to focus on oral and written work. On this subject we note the natural SEO that could evolve with voice SEO .
In the future, voice assistants will all be endowed with a real personality, which is not yet the case today. Of course as a human being, it is still necessary to be aware that you speak with a voice assistant and not with a natural person. The error will therefore be more acceptable.
Are voice assistants our future?
Presently offers for voice assistants have clearly developed in recent years. The majority of French people are currently experiencing the beginnings of voice assistants, but there are still people who remain reluctant, including lack of knowledge but also because everything seems to go too fast.
As it stands, the voice assistants have the ability to wake us up to music at the time of your choice, or to play the music of our choice or to inform us clearly about the current weather and the future. People’s main fears include the fact that they are clearly afraid of being hacked into all their data or just being listened to by others. A phenomenon still tinged with possible piracy.
Perhaps you will be more comfortable with the connected coffee table and the connected sofa that will probably feel. Thus the future of the voice assistant will be even more radiant. We can mention the bots that are currently considered gadgets, but that will be the future of tomorrow. The voice assistant is in a way the brain and the bots designate the muscles to be able to perform all the tasks ordered by the voice assistant.
You should know that some studies clearly show that 85% of the relationship between a customer and a brand will occur without the intervention of a human being by 2020.
Everything should be possible with the voice assistant in the years to come.
