CAMBRIDGE, Mass. LONDON Feb. 9, 2011
With the mobile web, people are more interested in task completion than information retrieval, changing the way they want to interact with their phones and internet-enabled devices. Typing short keywords and phrases will be replaced by more detailed and natural inputs, like voice commands. And the context of the search – elements like location and historical preferences – will be as important as the content of the search itself. This paradigm shift puts Vlingo’s Virtual Assistant in a unique position to change the way people access information.
Over 7 million users already use Vlingo an average of 5 times a day from their smartphone’s to connect to the people, businesses and services that are important to them. In 2011 Vlingo will deploy its cloud-based Virtual Assistant across multiple platforms and devices including tablets, autos, TV and PCs. Through simple, natural commands, users can complete a wide array of tasks with their connected device.
- "Where is Black Swan playing?"
- "Find Italian restaurants nearby"
- "Where can I get a burrito?"
- "Tell Dave I’m running late"
