Microsoft Wants To Develop A New Personal Assistant[dropcap]As[/dropcap] we all know that virtual assistants make our job much easier and on this year’s Build Conference in 2016 the software giant has announced plans to build a series of chat bots that interact with users, like a real man. While the tech giant Google assistant has Google and Apple has Siri, so far Microsoft had not developed these technologies unless we take into account “Cortana”.
Although the company Microsoft which is founded by Bill Gates already has Cortana, and it seems that the Redmond wants to take a step forward and have a product on the sleeve to compete with the new assistant of Google and Apple. Hence, the vacancy opportunities are offered in the Microsoft portal which reveals that the firm is behind the tech experts and engineers to work on the project.
According to the tech giant Microsoft “Your new smart personal assistant” that can help you to find things on your computer, manage your calendar and even able to chat with the users of Windows 10 and can also make jokes.
As the tech giant Microsoft stated that “In Bing Concierge Bot Our team we are building a highly intelligent productivity agent that communicates with the user over a conversation platform, such as Skype, Messenger, SMS, WhatsApp, Telegram, etc. The agent does what a human assistant would do: it runs errands on behalf of the user, by automatically completing tasks for the user. The user’s talk to the agent in natural language, and the agent responds in natural language to collect all the information; once ready, it automatically performs the task for the user by connecting to service providers. For example, the user might ask ‘make me a reservation at an Italian place tonight’, and the agent will respond with ‘for how many people?’; after several such back-and-forth turns it will confirm and book the restaurant that the user picked”.
As the tech giant Google’s “Google Assistant”, improved version of Google Now has evolved so much that it is now able to understand the complicated voice commands and can also perform various tasks at high speed.
Meanwhile, Apple has been long working on its new virtual assistant know as Viv to replace Siri. With this voice assistant, it is already possible to develop miscellaneous tasks like ordering food or booking a hotel room.
This has been known for a slip that the company lay the foundations of Bill Gates since published a job which was quickly withdrawn by the company, in which the developers were requested for this project. Quite credible rumors speak that the tech giant Microsoft has named its virtual assistant with the name “Bing Concierge Bot”, intended as a parody of the virtual assistant Google Home.
