On April 4, noHold's CEO, Diego Ventura, was invited to speak at the Peggy Smedley Institute (PSI), 2016 Conference. Situated in San Francisco, California, Diego spoke alongside other professionals from various industries to:

  • Review the state of the IoT
  • Examine the leaders and innovators
  • Explore products and successes
  • Review threats and security issues
  • Look at the lessons learned

Diego's presentation centered around two questions; how will Virtual Assistants (VAs) connect to IoT, and how can humans benefit from this transforming paradigm? Here are a couple short clips of Diego sharing his thoughts and ideas regarding the topic. 

In this introductory clip, Diego touches on the fact that Artificial Intelligence has surpassed the 'basic' capability of beating chess. In today's society, machine learning and Artificial Intelligence are making a huge impact on the IoT world with the growing level of sophisticated algorithms.  

Users submerged in the IoT typically deal with multiple applications to control each individual device. In the clip below, Diego speaks about noHold's Butler-style VA, created to manage all connected devices from a single interface, improving the way individuals relate to the IoT. 

It was a pleasure for Diego to be apart of another engagement put forth by Connected World and The Peggy Smedley Show

Let us know your thoughts on the IoT in the comments below. Cisco estimates that within the next 4 years, 50 billion devices will be connected to the Internet (Cisco). Do you think a Butler VA can help streamline the way humans are able to interact with all those devices?
