Learn about a key ingredient that will make intelligent assistants more intelligent in the next few years.
Hi, I'm Tim Tuttle and I'm the CEO and founder of Expect Labs. I'm doing a multi-part video blog series on the ways that we think intelligent assistants are going to get smarter over the next few years. I've talked about how we think intelligent systems are going to get much faster, we think they're going to get more accurate, and we also think they're going to get smarter and they're going to be able to anticipate you better. Today I am going to talk about how these intelligent systems are going to get smarter.
Now, if you use intelligent assistants today, you'll probably notice that they don't always understand you. If you ask it a very simple question like, "where's the Eiffel Tower?" it will probably give you the correct answer that it's in Paris. But if you ask it a more esoteric question like, "does jQuery version 6 run in the webkit browser?" it's probably not going to have any idea because obviously that's using jargon that it doesn't particularly understand, software programming jargon. If you say, "do I have a hairline fracture in my fifth metatarsal?" it probably won't understand you because it doesn't understand medical concepts.
