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.
