I’m a big fan of digital assistants and have an Amazon Echo device in almost every room. They turn on faucets, turn off lights, answer questions (though often not accurately), and I can even have conversations with them. But when it comes to applying them to actual work efforts, they fall woefully short.
This week, I came across a company — iGenius — that might be able to change that. It created Crystal to marry your vast data repositories with artificial intelligence (AI) to give birth to your very own enterprise-class digital assistant.
While iGenius is far from the only company working on this, Crystal is the best such tool I’ve seen so far.
