Smart assistants are the new-age virtual robots that can get a lot of things done. They are not limited to things like setting the reminder or giving a call to someone. They can do much more. As travellers, there are plenty of things we wish done to improve our efficiency when we want to travel light, and we hope that everything goes as planned. A smart assistant can be helpful in such instances.
When we travel, we often plan things well in advance. Smart assistants are there to make our lives more efficient; we can use them to feed our calendar plans to be reminded of our tasks and much more. The possibilities are endless. A smart assistant is an algorithm that does the job of absorbing a human query in the form of a voice command. It processes it as a statement, or an inquiry then sends the data to the data centres in the form of small packets. At the backend, the query is dissected into parts to understand the context and then the smart assistant responds back.
Travellers are always looking for hacks and tricks that can save them time and resources. What better a resource than a smart assistant? It can help you find the best route from place A to place B, re-route your journey for the most optimal conditions, and more. A smart assistant can even book your flight tickets by just a few voice commands. If you go hiking or on a trek, the assistant can call someone with just a voice command. The best part about these assistants is that they don’t sound like a manual. They also carry a bit of intellect and are programmed with a doze of humor too. In the infographic below we can see how the smart assistants react when they are asked specific questions.
Talking about how each of them perform, all are improving with usage and new tech developments. So far, we have seen smart assistants responding flawlessly for general queries. Google’s assistant works the best. For commands and orders where you wish to buy something with ease, Amazon’s Alexa is just the right tool. Apple’s Siri is yet to become a bit smarter as it has been known to work the best when connected with the homepod. The crux is that if you are a traveller then you can try the smart assistants to plan your trip and also get a lot of things done so go ahead and make use of them.
