Executive Assistants for Everyone

Book Description

Currently, only top managers have human executive assistants, but in the near future, everyone who has a smartphone can have a digital executive assistant. This will be made possible by the “mobile cloud” -- technology that integrates the convenience of the mobile phone with the power of cloud computing. The mobile phone interface will shift toward interactive voice communication -- just like communicating with a human assistant -- but your digital agent will be able to access and search vast amounts of information in the cloud almost instantaneously, enabling quicker and better decisions.
