First off, try to imagine an invisible personal assistant, ever so helpful Ms. or Mr. Jones hovering above your shoulder, always ready to record your notes, orders or thoughts. You would only be required to do nothing for that, except talking. And that’s how your MYLE user interface pretty much operates.
And MYLE will do what your reliable personal assistant would.
Like helping you manage your time by adding entries to your calendar and later sending timely alerts and reminders to your phone or computer.
Tap once on the MYLE device and say “Reminder, finish and send presentation to Nicole by 4pm next Tuesday”. MYLE will catch the deadline and will remind you as the specified date gets nearer.
Another interesting feature that MYLE can help you master is to keep track of the time you spend on your activities, be it a job or your life. By showing you how effectively you spend your day MYLE will free you more spare time. It will also analyze your activities – using some very complex cloud-based mathematical algorithms of its analytical engine – to provide tips on how to make your day more productive and less stressful.
Unlike a human assistant, MYLE is ready to serve you 24/7. Its size and understated design will make it look appropriate on all sorts of garments, and it’s always within an instant reach. To activate it one only needs to tap it with a finger and say the note or a command.
Unlike other solutions on the market, where users always share their personal data with the provider, MYLE takes totally different approach to handling your personal information. Here users are sole owners of all their data.
With all that MYLE enables you to organize your daily routines in the most efficient and least stressful manner. Leave those tedious distractions behind and focus on something that’s truly valuable.
Back in the 1990s the IT world came with an idea of the personal digital assistants (PDAs). At that time this concept start quickly becoming popular because most of the PDAs combined many features of cell phones, and they were also called “the first smartphones,” yet PDAs were handy at managing personal and business lives.
IBM was the first company to introduce the world’s first PDA with full cell phone functionality. They called their innovation the IBM Simon, which is also considered the first smartphone. Simon featured many applications such as calendar, appointment scheduler, world time clock, notepad and other apps that aimed to keep users’ lives organized.
Then in 1996, the mobile giant Nokia, produced the world’s best-selling PDA, the 9000 Communicator, with full cell phone functionality. Later the same year, Palm Computing presented the first generation of their PDAs, which were a great solution for someone who wanted to keep organized their busy lives.
Fifteen years later, Apple launched the Siri personal assistant, which made impossible things real. It allowed people speak their search queries into a phone, and Siri would understand and perform their queries for them. IPhone users started to feel some sort of emotional attachment to their devices.
After this enormous success, Apple’s main rival – Google – launched the Google Now feature in 2012, and then Microsoft developed Cortana personal assistant. In 2015, Facebook launched M assistant. So in spring 2016, MYLE will reveal its first intelligent personal assistant, which has an ability to outpace any other solutions on the market.
Many companies are interested in the PDAs market, and as according to recent research, nearly 39% of smartphone owners use some sort of PDAs such as Google Now or Siri. This trend will be rising over the next five years.
Most of the PDAs are in favour for many entrepreneurs because they can practically organize their day: suggesting routes for travel, advising on current weather conditions, finding the best restaurants based on the previous history, conducting faster web searches and setting up meetings. They also help by suggesting places for business meetings, remembering things like important thoughts and crucial business ideas.
Majority of the contemporary PDAs could be controlled by voice or through manual data input.
However, those features above are only one drop in the ocean compared to what they will do for its users in the next couple of years. Other key features of the PDAs are their integration into different systems and apps, such as Slack, Wunderlist, Evernote or Salesforce.
For instance, in order to save notes, ideas, to-dos and other tasks to Evernote, a MYLE user should only say those commands to the device. It will automatically recognize and understand the words, convert speech-to-text and categorize all users’ commands into assigned applications.
However, MYLE device is not limited to these functions. Moreover, its smart AI algorithm will enhance itself to better understand users’ behaviour using the latest breakthroughs in machine learning.
MYLE sets a purpose for its PDA, namely, to take over routines of many entrepreneurs to free their tight schedule for leisure time, family and other activities.
PDAs are powered by artificial intelligence and they have already become an essential feature for many businesses and consumers.
As you probably remember, not so long time ago I wrote about Pebble – why I believe it is the best smartwatch on the market, and why its simplicity and intuitivity, as well as lack of over-complicated gizmos, are what users really need.
So now I’d like to reiterate my belief and to thank Pebble team for their amazing product and the service they provide.
It looks like that pebbloids (or how the Pebble guys call themselves) keep a close eye on the market and search for the ways to deliver better product and improve services for their customers. I know it for sure, because they somehow found my post where I briefly mentioned the troubles with my Pebble, found and connected with me, and exchanged my old watch for a new one.
The entire process took a couple of days to communicate and work out the details, and a few days later I got a parcel with my new Pebble Classic. And you know, I liked the simplicity of the product replacement service – all I had to do was to take a photo of the Pebble watch back side with a handwritten number I received from their support. That’s it! The picture was sent to their Support team, and the next day I found a confirmation of the new watch shipping.
As you know, the crisis affected almost all the markets, including the hi-tech industry, and made companies pay close attention to the quality of services provided. Until quite recently, Zappos were traditionally on the top in terms of the service quality, and now the newcomers overtake it and grab the leading positions. Based on what I saw Pebble is one of such new leaders. This is really great – the more competition and the better services for us customers, the happier we are! 😉
I was lucky to meet Eric Migicovsky at CES 2016, and used the opportunity to express my personal gratitude to him for that amazing devices he made.
Hope that Pebble will avoid the transformation when a cool young and energetic startup turns into a small dinosaur with all the problems common for big corporations. I believe in the guys and think they will continue developing cool products and deliver their amazing services for us. We’re looking forward folks to see your new offerings!
“How did it get so late so soon? Its night before its afternoon. December is here before its June. My goodness, how the time has flown. How did it get so late so soon?” – Dr. Seuss.
The passage of time goes unnoticed most of the, well, time. Yet once we realize its transient nature, there is no hiding from this bitter realization – time flies by and does it too quickly for comfort. Because for us, humans, time is the only absolutely unredeemable asset. Yet it keeps pouring through our hands like water leaving us with the thought of how much time was lost – on what, exactly?!
The modern life presents us with hundreds if not thousands of opportunities to lose time. Each task or a thought bites its little chunk off our time. So if you want to do more in less time – effective time management will be the key.
Modern technologies did wonders to help us with that, tracking amount of time we spend on each particular task, making our hectic and busy living more organized, orderly and thus simpler and easier for us.
However, even though the purpose of all these numerous applications and gadgets is to save us time, they make us spending more – just accessing and using them. Just try to note how long it takes to use an app or a gadget. With a phone app it goes like this: reach for the phone, unlock, start the app, do your thing by typing a command or a note, close the app, switch off the phone and put it back where it was. Sounds pretty fast and nothing to worry about, doesn’t it? Now multiply it by the number of times you repeat the procedure during the day, it starts to look rather worrisome.
Yet once you do it with MYLE, using our most natural way of data input – our voice – the whole routine is cut to 5 seconds. Tap, say the note and get back to what you were doing, allowing MYLE to complete all tasks in the background – automatically. Additional boon is that all can be done with a minimal distraction from your main activity, be it work or play.
“Time,’ spent two hours on emails, 30 minutes talking with the boss, 10 minutes on coffee break”.
“Schedule, meeting with Jim, this Friday 10 am, remind 10 minutes prior”.
“Shop list. Buy milk today on way home”.
MYLE will automatically save your note as an audio file, convert it into text file and push it to an appropriate app based on the key words that you teach MYLE to know. The built-in activity-tracking feature will analyze your active time and how you spend it using its powerful algorithms to make the personalized suggestions based on your past records.
It will learn your behavior and adjust the predictive analytics to tell you what you could do to maximize your productivity and efficiency. And it will not bite any time off your busy day to achieve all that.
Everyone has been in this situation; you look at the watch without a clue as how could the time pass so quickly.
It would seem that you’ve recently arrived at your job desk and about to start working, however, it’s already 5 p.m., and you’re not even done half of your tasks.
You’re thinking, “where is that lost time? What could be the reason for such a poor productivity?”
The reason could be hundreds of the emails you were supposed to reply on from your laptop; or dozens of messages from your financial department that your cell phone was receiving; or notifications and phone calls from the CEO and clients that you’ve forgotten to schedule a meeting with all of them.
Meanwhile, you’ve got a brilliant million dollar idea on how to make a winning marketing campaign, but it happened so that this routine caused you to forget your fabulous idea.
These tasks of constantly switching from your laptop to cell phone to communicate with different departments simultaneously writing down your ideas and notes, are driving your attention and productivity away leaving you in a situation of total madness and uncontrolled processes.
However, your tasks are not over yet, because you have a report that’s due tomorrow morning for the meeting with a CEO. Then you start realizing that 5 minutes required to finish your routine tasks, apparently have taken the entire day. You forget about your leisure time and staying up until midnight at your office desk.
It’s a reality of the modern person. We’re all stuck in this routines funnel where escape is only possible through the use of contemporary technologies.
“When you kill time, remember that it has no resurrection.”
― A.W. Tozer
It’s true that we cannot redeem the time and opportunities we wasted on useless things. Remember, perhaps you thought about it at least once, “Only if I had had more time, then I would’ve changed everything to better. »
We tend to spend senselessly our time doing what we make ourselves believe in – doing important things – when in reality we are disconnecting from our lives.
Today’s reality – we have the full spectrum of opportunities to influence the time with a maximum outcome.
Technologies are called to save our time.
Today’s market has produced thousands of devices and apps that aim to make people’s lives simpler through automating their daily communication and other processes.
Look, for instance, at Slack, their slogan is to simplify the working lives by making them more pleasant and productive. Slack eases the entire communication process within large teams in the most time efficient way. However, Slack is one of the thousands of different tools that strive to simplify people’s lives.
MYLE is another intelligent assistive technology tool to manage a busy business life. It’s already been in the development stage for the past several years, and 2016 will be the year when people get to see this new technology.
The team of developers has set a goal to minimize your time required to execute a particular task and maximize your productivity. Moreover, applying the latest breakthroughs in speech recognition and predictive analytics, this miniature device can save you, at least, one hour daily.
Savings come from all the time spent daily reaching for the smartphone, unlocking, opening apps, putting the phone back. On top of that, MYLE will save much more time via automating routines and accomplishing tasks that previously were completed manually. Moreover, you’ll remember everything.
All day on the run, endless meetings, endless list of things to remember, an avalanche of ideas. So, simply not enough time for everything. A single finger tap will effectively capture and memorize any inquiry or a million dollar idea, and will track and optimize time.
When technology is used wisely, it can provide us with more time to enjoy leisure activities and pursue our passions.
The global market of assistive technologies is expected the growth of USD 3.07 billion by 2020, according to a new study by San Francisco-based market research and consulting company Grand View Research, Inc.
In 2014, this perspective market was valued at USD 572.2 million. Currently, many large enterprises and SMEs are looking for solutions to reduce its overall expenses, increase productivity, improve customer-related services and process the enormous amount of data – that’s expected to rise over the next four years.
According to this research, VAs can be used across many industries, such as insurance, healthcare, finance, travel & hospitality, retail and utility sectors and safety regulations.
Noteworthy, the commercial sector is highly interested in VAs due to their desire to increase productivity of their employees and to eliminate the human workforce.
VAs are estimated to replace a significant percentage of workers in business operations.
Advancements in speech recognition and powerful analytics that are integrated into the VAs will make this technology more desirable for the commercial sector.
Think of the powerful device that’s able to collect automatically, process, describe and later use data to predict the working efficiency, financial stability and even possible recommendations for a business or an individual worker.
Personalized analytics and applications created for the specific needs of each business will add more accurate analytics allowing the VAs minimize the time required to perform a particular task, and maximize the company’s growth.
