MIAMI, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 08/19/14 -- Google just bought Emu, an intelligent messaging app that can be used as an artificial assistant. The Emu AI engine looks through messages to find keywords, which it then turns into contextual information. The app can be used for making appointments, reserving tables at restaurants and other tasks. On top of that it gives location-based recommendations for various subjects, from movie theaters to attractive sights. Sounds a little bit like Siri? The similarity to the famous app is no coincidence: Emu CEO Gummi Hafsteinsson worked on the development of Siri at Apple before launching his own company.
Technology fan and investor Matt Argall is curiously awaiting how Google will integrate its most recent purchase into the existing network of software solutions and applications. Argall has been following the development of artificial intelligence for years and is excited about the advances that technology made in this area in recent years. "Many AI programs already know how to recognize human speech and react to it, which really amazes me," says Argall. "And with every innovation in that field apps are capable of executing even more difficult tasks and handle complex challenges. I think AI apps will soon be part of our everyday lives. Now is a great time to invest in the development of artificial intelligence technologies and it is really exciting to watch the changes that happen almost on a daily basis."
Argall might be on to something. Aside from Google, Facebook and Microsoft are also keeping their experts busy, urging them to develop AI apps to keep up with their competitors. And LinkedIn is closing on their heels too: Last month the social network for professionals turned its contact app into a new connected app that helps users not only build and maintain professional connections, but also uses information such as profile updates, work anniversaries, job changes, birthdays, and key business interests to provide users with relevant, personalized updates. "A good AI app is like a personal assistant, only much cheaper," laughs Matt Argall. "Who could say no to that?" Thanks to the advances in machine learning algorithms and artificial intelligence technologies, this idea could soon become reality.
Matt Argall is an experienced entrepreneur who has established numerous businesses, helped companies in their marketing efforts, and has made himself a name as a knowledgeable investor and corporate advisor. For his first business endeavor, which he realized at the young age of only 17, he utilized the online platform eBay, which was only just emerging at the time. Up to this day, Argall is especially excited about technological advances and innovations and oftentimes finds great investment opportunities that foster new inventions before they go mainstream. Argall's business is based in Florida, Miami, where he lives with his wife Maya and their son Rocco. Aside from his passion for new technologies he enjoys spending time with his family and is also a passionate philanthropist who actively supports local and international organizations with a focus on helping children as well as startup businesses in developing countries.

The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, will provide an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data profes...
