VERSES Technology Introduces Personal AI Assistant GIA


In the earliest days of artificial intelligence-based chatbots, humans didn’t particularly enjoy interacting with them. Their scope was limited and they didn’t give the impression of being terribly human-like, making conversation difficult and frustrating. Many of today’s next-generation chatbots have overcome the early problems with programming to better understand what humans want, and how they want to interact.

AI company VERSES Technologies Inc. recently announced a breakthrough in AI with its new General Intelligent Agent, codenamed GIA (pronounced “jee-yah”), which was designed to offer a new human-centered way for businesses and individuals to interact with technology. GIA is a personal AI assistant that is designed to learn about its users in order to better organize, manage, and optimize their digital life. GIA, which can work either via voice or text messaging, operates under a user’s direction and on their behalf, searching, filtering, and summarizing information across multiple data sources. With unique features like automating data organization, predictive reasoning, and the ability to learn over time, GIA is poised to become the first intelligent all-in-one solution for anyone seeking a smarter way to organize, manage, and automate their personal and professional activities, according to the company.

Individuals and business users can allow GIA to search and interact across different apps, websites, devices and systems and offer personalized answers, analysis, and recommendations, manage calendars, schedule appointments, send messages, and even orchestrate and automate the real-world activities of everything from smart home devices and appliances to industrial robots and autonomous vehicles.

“In the Information Age, we have become overwhelmed with the onslaught of information: emails, app alerts, and device notifications. Businesses are drowning in big data, trying to make sense of information across various systems and how it will benefit them,” said Jason Fox, VERSES Chief Technology Officer, in a statement. “In the Web 2.0 era an ‘app for that’ resulted in users needing to search across hundreds of single-purpose apps and more devices than anyone can keep track of. The digital overload and administrative drudgery have left users wanting ‘less’ from technology.”
