    Virtual Digital Assistants: Virtual Agents, Chatbots, and Virtual Assistants for Consumer and Enterprise Markets Utilizing Artificial Intelligence, Natural Language Processing, and Conversational User Interfaces

    Virtual digital assistants (VDAs), which are automated software applications or platforms that assist the human user through understanding natural language in written or spoken form, are rapidly gaining traction in consumer and enterprise markets alike. While smartphone-based consumer VDAs are currently the bestknown offerings, virtual assistant technologies are also beginning to penetrate other device types including smart watches, fitness trackers, PCs, smart home systems, and automobiles. Consumer and enterprise use cases for VDAs are proliferating rapidly thanks to accelerated innovation and scalability of underlying technologies,
    such as natural language processing (NLP) and artificial intelligence (AI).

    Many of the world's technology giants believe VDAs will be vital to their businesses in the future, and they are investing significant resources to capture market share at this early stage. Consumer VDAs are deployed by application players and platform providers to serve consumers as a multi-purpose assistant with the ability to act as a conduit between consumers and a range of companies and services. Meanwhile, enterprise VDAs are deployed for interaction with a specific enterprise, using channels the enterprise typically controls, such as phone/interactive voice response (IVR) systems, websites, mobile applications, kiosks, and wearables. Tractica forecasts that unique active consumer VDA users will grow from 390 million in 2015 to 1.8 billion worldwide by the end of 2021. During the same period, unique active enterprise VDA users will rise from 155 million in 2015 to 843 million by 2021.

    There is a huge demand of virtual assistant as we are becoming greatly dependent on technology. The tasks that are performed by virtual assistants are very extensive, and even the search engines are going the with artificial intelligence in search algorithms.

    How AI-enabled devices will affect businesses in 2017

    Someone made a lot of new friends over the holidays. And by a lot, we’re talking about millions.

    Her name is Alexa, and along with her acquaintances (perhaps frenemies?) Cortana and Siri, she’s about to become as much a part of the daily life of American households as Alfred the butler is at Wayne Manor. Except that Alfred, for all his talents, can’t tell Batman exactly what time the cable repairman will arrive this afternoon, or the current balance in his bank account (not that billionaire Bruce Wayne would care).

    The implications of 2017, the year virtual assistants really arrived, will be immense for business. There isn’t a minute to lose; at least a dozen industries need to be looking at how these will change their value propositions, their business models, and their customer relationships.

    But more about that in a minute. Why has 2017 become so important in the development of AI-enabled devices?

    Samsung paid around $215 million for virtual assistant startup Viv

    Samsung has disclosed the terms of its recent acquisition of virtual assistant startup Viv Labs. When Samsung made the deal for 238.93 million won on October 7, the Korean won was equal to $0.0009, meaning that the price came out to around $215 million.

    San Jose-based Viv Labs, whose team built Apple’s Siri virtual assistant, is now a subsidiary of Samsung Research America, according to the filing (PDF) from earlier this month. Most of the money was for goodwill, the filing shows. Since the acquisition, Viv Labs has generated a loss of 3,424 million won, or $3.08 million. The startup took on $30 million in funding before being acquired, according to CrunchBase.

    Why voice assistants will become the center of home entertainment


    The mass adoption of the radio changed American homes forever. In 1930,more than 40 percent of American households owned a radio; a decade later, 83 percent owned at least one. The radio brought news, entertainment, music, sports, politics (think Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Fireside Chats), and advertisements to millions of Americans. It was the first time that ordinary people had access to live, broadcasted information from the ease and comfort of their living rooms.

    Before the radio, American homes were largely organized around activities such as sleeping and eating. However, after the mass adoption of radio, Americans needed gathering areas to listen to their new radios. Parlors, or drawing rooms, once used for conversation, poker games, or perhaps playing the piano, became living rooms with radios as their focal point. People huddled together to listen. Radio transformed American homes and American home culture, formalizing the concept of a communal, family-style entertainment centerpiece.

    Bixby: A New Way to Interact with Your Phone

    Technology is supposed to make life easier, but as the capabilities of machines such as smartphones, PCs, home appliances and IoT devices become more diverse, the interfaces on these devices are becoming too complicated for users to take advantage of many of these functions conveniently. User interface designers have to make trade off decisions to cram many functions into a small screen or bury them deeper in layers of menu trees. Ultimately users are at the mercy of the designers with an increasingly steep curve that makes learning a new device difficult. This is the fundamental limitation of the current human-to-machine interface. Since Samsung makes millions of devices, this problem impacts the core of our business.

    Samsung has a conceptually new philosophy to the problem: instead of humans learning how the machine interacts with the world (a reflection of the abilities of designers), it is the machine that needs to learn and adapt to us. The interface must be natural and intuitive enough to flatten the learning curve regardless of the number of functions being added. With this new approach, Samsung has employed artificial intelligence, reinforcing deep learning concepts to the core of our user interface designs. Bixby is the ongoing result of this effort.

    Bixby will be a new intelligent interface on our devices. Fundamentally different from other voice agents or assistants in the market, Bixby offers a deeper experience thanks to proficiency in these three properties:
