The Makers of Apple’s Siri Introduce ViV, an AI Digital Assistant

Artificial Intelligence in the of chat bots are making big moves in the technology arena and Viv is just another extension of the movement. In an upgrade to the human-computer interaction platforms, voice controlled assistance has gotten a new meaning with Viv — an artificial intelligence (AI) virtual system, from the creators of Siri.

Dag Kittlaus, co-founder and CEO of Siri – displayed the first public demonstration of Viv – an AI virtual system that aims to be “the intelligent interface for everything”.

In a live presentation, Kittlaus talked about the next wave of computer interaction methods and how Viv would come to ‘breathe life into the inanimate objects of our life through conversation’.

The demo steered without any easily noticeable glitches despite the high-efficiency specificity of the queries uttered onstage. Viv answered almost all the questions correctly. Viv as a platform is the open-armed welcoming of third-party integrations into the virtual assistant fray.

To show this, Kittlaus asked Viv to pay a friend $20 and Viv tapped the pay button on a mobile transfer app and the friend was paid.

Kittlaus said Viv was developed with “dynamic programme generation” which allows the AI-powered assistant to understand the intent and generate a programme itself to best answer the query. According to the company, Viv will be available across devices in the coming months.
