Artificial Solutions Introduces Intelligent Network to Deliver Domain Specific Knowledge to Personal Assistants

Teneo Network of Knowledge creates an eco-system of virtual assistants seamlessly accessed

BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Mobile World Congress – Artificial Solutions™ (www.artificial-solutions.com), the natural language interaction (NLI) specialist that enables users to have a meaningful, humanlike interaction with technology, introduced today the Teneo Network of Knowledge, a patented intelligent framework that allows the inherent knowledge of a mobile personal assistant to be extended with specialist domain expertise based on implicit and explicit personalization. Demo can be seen here http://youtu.be/UWHra2lhgMU  

Key highlights:

  • A personal assistant that has access to an army of specialist virtual assistants with the knowledge for every occasion
  • The ability to seamlessly access this eco-system of virtual assistants using intelligent routing based on implicit and explicit personalization
  • Enablement of true artificial intelligence as personal assistants learn from experience
  • Non-technical, device independent development platform to enable easy creation of domain specific virtual assistants

Personal assistants are already changing the way users interact with their mobiles and will become an essential part of user interaction as wearable technology takes off, but ask them to do something such as book a flight and all a user gets is a list of sponsored links, airlines and aggregators. The Teneo Network of Knowledge will transform this by enabling personal assistants to offer users the choice of talking directly with a virtual assistant that has the knowledge to answer their specific query, such as one from an airline or travel agent. In addition, sophisticated real-time analytics within the Teneo platform, allows the personal assistant to learn a user's preference, such as airline, seat choice etc in a closed-loop feed and incorporate this information automatically into the process.

Intelligent routing developed by Artificial Solutions enables not just different methods of dealing with the handover process including the ability for the personal assistant to deliver it themselves, but also the order in which knowledge resources are prioritized. In addition, because assistants on the Teneo Network of Knowledge are able to remember the context of the conversation there is no need for the question to be repeated, the new virtual assistant will just continue the conversation and seamlessly transfer the user back when their portion of the conversation is complete.

The Teneo Network of Knowledge is built around the Teneo platform that allows non-computational linguists to build highly sophisticated NLI apps in multiple languages, running across different OS, devices and channels. This opens up the world of the natural language apps to the developer community and allows brands and organizations to provide content directly to a user via their own virtual assistant.

"Virtual assistants are starting to change the way consumers interact with their mobile devices making it easy to set reminders, send messages and access information, but they lack the vast amount of knowledge required to be an essential part of users' lives," says Lawrence Flynn, CEO of Artificial Solutions. "The Teneo Network of Knowledge opens up personal assistants to the wealth of information contained with the virtual assistants of organizations, whilst delivering information that is personalized to them."

The Teneo Network of Knowledge can be seen running on Indigo, Artificial Solutions' own personal assistant launched last year at Mobile World Congress at Artificial Solutions' stand at Congress Square (CS50), stand #39 during this year's show.

Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures. Yet all of this technology – and there are an amazing number of choices – is of no use without the software to gather, communicate, and analyze the new data flows. Without software, there is no IT. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation; Alan Williamson, Principal ...
DevOps and microservices are permeating software engineering teams broadly, whether these teams are in pure software shops but happen to run a business, such Uber and Airbnb, or in companies that rely heavily on software to run more traditional business, such as financial firms or high-end manufacturers. Microservices and DevOps have created software development and therefore business speed and agility benefits, but they have also created problems; specifically, they have created software securi...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
