Say hello to the newest intelligent agent, IBM’s Watson Assistant
This white-labeled incarnation of the Watson supercomputer is designed to learn what makes its users happy.
Among intelligent agents, there is now another new best friend: IBM’s Watson Assistant.
The tech giant introduced this smart voice- and text-enabled enterprise assistant on Tuesday at its Think 2018 conference in Las Vegas, wrapping the previous Watson Virtual Agent into this new release.
But the company is pointing to a few differences from Amazon’s Alexa, Apple’s Siri, the Google Assistant, Microsoft’s Cortana and the others in that crowd.
First of all, the Assistant will be white-labeled, meaning that you won’t be saying, “OK, Watson.”
