When it comes to AI assistants, a battle has been waged between different companies, with assistants like Siri, Cortana, and Alexa at the forefront of the battle. And now a new potential competitor enters the arena.
“Viv is an artificial intelligence platform that enables developers to distribute their products through an intelligent, conversational interface. It’s the simplest way for the world to interact with devices, services and things everywhere. Viv is taught by the world, knows more than it is taught, and learns every day.”
During a 20 minute onstage demo at Disrupt NYC, creators of Siri Dag Kittlaus and Adam Cheyer revealed Viv – a new AI assistant that makes Siri look like a children’s toy.

The company’s very tagline – intelligence becomes a utility – pretty much sums up where Viv is taking the technology into the future. It’s an intelligence of everything, whereby the conversations we have with our machines will become just as fluid as that of speaking with other fellow human beings. We are looking at a future where AI is no longer “artificial;” rather has entered the realm of actual intelligence.
