Smart Virtual Assistants
Imagine a robotic assistant sitting there for you, making your appointments, setting your meetings and sorting your emails. This is what a smart virtual assistant is all about. From time to time, various operating systems have given us a teaser of soon to be taking over smart virtual assistants and now we are close to seeing this becoming a reality. A typical smart virtual assistant in your office will have the skill and ability to grasp the tone of your voice and on your instructions do some of the basic assistive tasks. These can include sorting your emails, booking automated appointments, sending automated invites or even dialing phones from your computers.
Since the growth of social media platforms, digital media and introduction of latest technological devices, privacy has become a grave concern for most people. In a survey, 91% of Americans felt that they were completely exposed to the online world, despite having strong password and firewall setup as there has been so many breaches. This is why companies and technological firms will invest more capital into strengthening the privacy of their information, accounts and improve the security systems even further.
Brands like Coke, Facebook and Google have already tried testing drones for the delivery of small units and orders. Very soon we will have them for the company’s wanting to transfer one thing from one department or office to another.
Google is already testing its payment mechanisms out, soon we will have social media platforms, giving a chance to make payments or transfer money from one individual to another through their profiles and this can become very interesting phenomena at work. Social payments can be a start of a new kind of banking or transaction in the online world, which will provide users with a chance to operate in a possibly more secure and modern way.
