Big data has bought both scientific and digital revolution with itself. When almost very industry is trying to leverage big data analytics, it becomes imperative for the world to enhance their big data IQ. After all, technology should be a good servant, not a master.

RISE OF BIG DATA – DRIVEN DIGITAL PERSONAL ASSISTANTS- ARE YOU READY?

DIGITAL PERSONAL ASSISTANTS WILL GO TO THE NEXT LEVEL-

Virtual assistants like Google’s Now, Microsoft’s Cortana and Apple’s Siri, among others are in their infancy as compared to what they are going to become in the coming time. Big data was being leveraged, but, on a little scale. As we are entering 2017, a lot is anticipated to change. Smartphones fully loaded with once known as ‘expensive’ sensors like radio, accelerometers and health statistics among others will start collecting even detailed data. Supported by semantic search, these assistants will work on the principle of truth-based and language results. Sentiments, intentions, and meaning- everything will be taken into consideration.

HOW VOICE-BASED INTERFACE WILL BECOME IMPORTANT-

Gartner predicts that by 2020, more than 35% of searches will become ‘Voice Based Searches’. The big data era already comprises audio-centric technologies like always-on Amazon’s Echo, Apple’s Air Pods, and Google Home among others, but these devices will become mainstream in 2017. The even advanced devices will eliminate the function of eyes and hands for browsing. Vocal communication and interaction will make the web experience even exciting by connecting the user to multiple activities like cooking, exercising, and driving at the same time.

HOW DIGITAL PERSONAL ASSISTANTS WILL BECOME IMPERATIVE FOR USERS-

There’s no denying that big data demands everything from big data IQ in users to the adoption of the upgrades that it offers. In the coming years, these assistants will become the user’s friend, colleague, and guardian. These virtual assistants will take all the major decisions of your life so that the user can engage himself in more entertaining tasks. These ‘intelligent’ assistants will answer the questions before you start searching. Thanks to big data and digital footprints that users leave!

VIRTUAL PERSONAL ASSISTANTS WILL ENHANCE YOUR BIG DATA IQ- WONDERING HOW?

Internet of Things is another concept that works in tandem with big data. It will open up myriad opportunities for the digital personal assistants in enhancing the lives of users. 2017 will witness digital personal assistants educating smartphone users about voice- based communication and how the ‘mobile phones’ can improve the lives of users. For example, digitally connected devices will control electronics and house utilities through a very simple voice interface.

Big data is revolutionizing almost every industry in today’s scenario. The deluge of data can undoubtedly help predict failures by improving the overall ‘Digital age’ that we are living in by transforming it into ‘Big data era’.
