Here’s what I really want out of a virtual assistant: Assistance. Not trivia questions. Not timers. Utility. It needs to actually make my life significantly easier. Let me give you an example. And there’s no doubt in my mind this will be possible someday. “Alexa, book me a flight for Peers Conf.” If I had a human personal assistant, that’s all I’d need to say to get this task done. They would go straight to work, and I’d get on with my day.
Great take on where these devices are right now.
