What's important to our customers, however, is the capabilities our IP drives and what it means to their applications.
- The ability to use context and other information to better understand the intent of a user request
We use this ability to let your customers ask questions across many topics in any order they want. They can also ask follow-up questions to create more of an 'exploratory' experience with information, versus static queries.
- The ability to personalize the output/response to a query based on context and other user
We use this ability to create a more engaging, and more efficient, application. For example, we can let a user define and ask for their "morning report" without having to repeat each individual query every morning.
- The ability to serve up advertising in your Personal Assistant application, based on context and other
This lets our customers incorporate an advertising business model in a way that is personalized and can be delivered so as not to be intrusive to the user.
