In his opening objective, Diego started with, “Virtual Agents [and Artificial Intelligence (A.I), in general] are becoming increasingly pervasive in our lives; think SIRI and Watson. When I started noHold, there was not even a name for Virtual Agents. The very fact that we are here today is proof of the incredible evolution that is affecting our industry.” He continued by saying, “We want to explore what might be the next evolution of Virtual Agents and how it will affect and improve our lives.”
Questions posed and discussed included:
How will we use Virtual Agents in the future?
Will they impact our homes? (Connected audio, devices, kitchen, etc.)
How will AI evolve to affect the way we plan our travel, meetings, and social events?
How will Virtual Assistants affect the Internet of Things (IoT) and vice versa?
What about an open architecture that allows Virtual Assistants to communicate with each other?
The potential application of Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Agents (also called Virtual Assistants), and Robotic Process Automation (RPA) are groundbreaking. According to analysts and experts in the industry, A.I. is positioned to be the next industrial revolution.
