Smart voice interfaces, embodied in the world of AR
We already have smart assistants everywhere around us. You might have turned them off, because they are annoying, don’t function very well, or perhaps you don’t find them useful at all. In the years to come, I expect them to improve quite a bit, but what do they have to offer in the world of augmented reality? The core benefit here, is: seeing is believing. When the AR agent helps you with your agenda: you want to see what is going on yourself. Next to that, AR allows for a spatial volumetric visualization on top of your own perspective. There, an agent could assist you with context specific content, or behavior changing tips and activities. Finally, a new layer that makes the agent more human: more ways to express itself: finally becoming more of a companion, rather than an assistant.
