Poll – Do we need Cortana in Windows 9?
So in one of our more recent articles, we talked a little bit about Cortana and how Windows 9 might actually have the virtual assistant installed.
For those who don’t know, Cortana is the codename for the newly announced intelligent personal assistant and knowledge navigator for Windows Phone 8.1.
Most experts expect the technology to be added to Windows 8.x and the Xbox One at some point in the future.
Anyway, as I reflected on the whole Cortana thing, it struck me that I wasn’t really sure what the actual use cases were for an intelligent personal assistant. In addition, I wanted to avoid anecdotal examples and wanted to take this one straight to you, the people.
OK this one is going to work in two parts:
- First, please take the ONE QUESTION poll below and let us know, do you think a virtual assistant in Windows would add value or is it just a gimmick to you. I’m really very curious.
- Second, please leave a comment below and tell us exactly what the thinking was behind your response. Do you think it’s just bullshit or are you really excited about the potential.
