As mentioned earlier, we love our smart-speakers. Owners love using them and they love showing them off to their friends. this has led to a public fascination and acceptance of it. While they currently can only perform "easy" tasks we expect this to evolve as fast as it will be accepted by the public. Voice search isn't new, but there are still some bugs to be worked out. Nonetheless it will change the way we use our search-tools. Instead of entering a search query like "televisions for sale", consumers will be able to speak more in a conversational way like "What's the best television I can buy on a small budget?"
With such an advanced search query it is obvious that the answer to it will have to be advanced too. Search engines will in the future be able to ask more detailed questions to provide even more detailed solutions. To continue using the car example, the search engine could reply with questions such as:
- What size are you looking for?
- What technology would you like?
- Are you looking for a specific brand?
Thanks to narrowing down options with these advanced questions, bots will be able to give personal solutions to the users search query. This increase in quality service will again only improve the acceptance and adoption of AI in our society.
We are expecting big things in the AI development for 2019, so much is certain. With our Shopitag platform
