is now the best friend IT ever had
If you look past the hype, existential concerns, and fear that is a CIA mole, there are some genuinely exciting developments happening in the world of .
Some of these have very specific applications, such as medical imaging, diagnostic capabilities, or satellite imagery recognition. Others, like digital assistants — or even robots — are poised to dramatically impact how we live and work on a broader scale.
Of course, most of us care about more than just a series of clever tricks. We want that does more than the bare minimum — which thus far has been defined as tedious manual tasks that are a nuisance for humans to complete. We want that can be harnessed to truly augment and enhance human intelligence, to keep in stride with us and act as a personal, contextually aware virtual assistant. IT professionals, in particular, can’t wait for the ultimate companion, which represents an imaginary best work friend come to life who you can interact with across a number of different interface types.
But what exactly does this look like? First, as we’re talking about a personal assistant, your should have a name; let’s call your companion Bender.
