Our natural language app listed in ‘Top 20 Great Android apps You Should Know About’
I was delighted to receive today a link to a post in the APPTEASERS section of the moborobo blog listing the “20 great Android apps and games you should know about”.
And, yes I confess to being a little proprietary here when I mention that our very own mobile personal assistant app is listed in the Top 20, neatly described as:
Feature-rich personal assistant app that brings a little something extra to the table. Instead of staying with one device you can seamlessly start a conversation on your smartphone and carry on with it on your tablet or desktop and back again. Naturally, you can also use to place calls, play music, search for locations, save notes, and update your social media. Polished beta if we’ve ever seen one. FREE
It’s nice to get this sort of accolade because our natural language app is a showcase for our NLI technology, Teneo – a platform that has been built to allow non-computational linguists to build sophisticated natural language driven apps, online virtual assistants and mobile personal assistants.
Our natural language app is a fun to use, conversational assistant akin to Apple’s Siri and Samsung’s S-Voice that allows you to interact with her (or him if you chose the male voice option) via everyday, conversational language, unlike so many other solutions which rely on rigid, specific commands. Of course, it’s not just about understanding the everyday language, but also the context and intent of these words. This powerful ability to deconstruct complete sentences by applying intelligent thinking and reasoning to ascertain the most appropriate response is what makes our natural language app so humanlike.
And that is basically what NLI is all about; understanding whatever you want to say and delivering a meaningful, relevant, accurate response. It’s a nice feature to have on mobiles where the screen real-estate is limited. It’s a critical component when you move to wearables where the screen may be only a few millimeters or not there at all!
