How Intelligent Digital Assistants are Shaping Our Future
Technically… an intelligent digital assistant (IDA) is a software agent that can perform tasks or services for an individual based on commands or questions. IDA’s use voice and natural language processing (NLP) backed by artificial intelligence (AI).
In layman’s terms… IDA’s provide the quickest way to engage visitors and return the answers they need, using natural conversation through voice or text. An IDA can exist in many different forms, whether on your smartphone or desktop, within a connected speaker, launched in specific apps and services when you need it, as a stand-alone kiosk or on large-scale digital displays.
Below are few ways Intelligent Digital Assistants support functional areas of business.
- Directional digital signage
- Product education and training
- Brand ambassadors
- Administrative support
- Visitor management, greeters, additional security
- Streamlined workflows
