MindMeld bringing AI to more places

Boot Camp feature for Tuesday, November 17, 2015

If you think Siri, Cortana,  Amazon’s Echo and Google Now are pretty cool…just wait.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   Talking to our smartphones,  tablets and other gadgets is becoming more and more familiar to many of us.     And the use of that kind of artificial intelligence technology is just getting started.   Former MIT Artificial Intelligence researcher Tim Tuttle now heads MindMeld…an AI platform being used by more than a fifteen hundred companies already…

“Within the next couple years, if you go to your favorite auto parts Web site or go to their app, they might have the opportunity to have you press a microphone button and ask a question and that system will understand questions about auto parts and automotive repair extremely well.”

Tuttle acknowledges that kind of tech has deservedly been the subject of lots of humor for its inaccuracies before.   But that is changing fast.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
