Continuing on the theme of humanising Sift, I have taken Google Assitant in this round. ( Humanising Sift : Part 1 is the link to the previous article). Google Assistant is a great fit because of the general purpose nature of the client. While having a nice voice conversation with google on any subject, the user can seamlessly get into interacting with Sift.
Check out the video demo here:
The architecture again is similar to Amazon’s except for the Assistant app on your phone and the “Actions on Google” platform in the middle. Magically, Sift comes alive for your voice commands. Google’s support for native languages in this part of the world (Thai, Bahasa) would make it even more user friendly. Will post a customer adoption video story soon. Exciting days ahead !
