December 20, 2017, MILPITAS, CA – Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been a trending topic in 2017. More and more individuals are interacting with AI in their everyday lives. Executives are realizing the influence AI has on business, and do not want to be left behind.
This year, noHold has accomplished some great things that have made an impact on the industry. A few include:
1. noHold successfully launched Albert and Albert PRO at the beginning of the year. Albert is a Virtual Assistant that can be created by anyone, no programming skills necessary. This innovation reinforces the fact that this space is moving toward the democratizing AI.
2. Multiple new connectors went live including the integration of noHold Virtual Assistants with Amazon’s Alexa, Facebook Messenger, and Google Assistant. These connectors take away the cumbersome task of creating a bot for each platform individually. Now, businesses and individuals are able to publish their bots on Google Assistant, or these other platforms, within minutes.
3. Gartner recognized noHold as a “Cool Vendor in AI for Conversational Platforms.” This is the second time Gartner has identified noHold as a “Cool Vendor,” the first time being in 2015 for Business Process Services.
While 2017 has been a year of innovation, noHold has more planned for the future. Recently, Diego Ventura, CEO and Founder of noHold was asked what new developments he is looking forward to in 2018:
“Conversational Interfaces for databases, and here is why. There is a significant amount of knowledge contained in open databases around the world, but it is not easily accessible unless you are a programmer. Using Conversational Interfaces that are connected to existing databases will allow end users unprecedented access to meaningful data, quickly. For example, one use case can be a Virtual shopping assistant where someone can ask, ‘What laptops have an i7 processor that are on sale and cost less than $800.’”
