    Some have discussed the possibility of using artificial intelligence in training virtual assistants. One type of assistant discussed is a chatbot that would answer basic questions, while another would be for people who need more personalized help with specific aspects like health or finances. The potential to use AI in virtual assistants exists; at the moment there are several unsuccessful attempts to create chat bots that carry on one-to-one conversations through voice input alone. With machine learning and pattern recognition, artificial intelligence may come close enough to human conversation. Other researchers suggest outsourcing tasks like sending emails or helping with scheduling meetings because these take away from time spent doing things humans do best - strategic thinking, quick reflexes and perception - saving them for more important work.

    Though the trend towards increasingly more personal digital assistants has led to speculation about whether such assistants will become sentient, we currently imagine that they will not. Current artificial intelligence technologies are mostly limited to automating simple tasks and very specific types of activities in a narrow context. At the moment, highly anticipated developments in artificial intelligence - such as self-driving cars and machines with consciousness - can't yet do anything beyond what might be possible from a human operator who's been specifically trained for certain purposes. In spite of these high hopes, there is very little sign that AI technologies will ever come close to rivaling or exceeding humans at abstract reasoning or complex problem solving.

    AI is the field of artificial intelligence. AI includes programming a computer to find its own ways to problem solve, and virtual assistants are part of that field. The term "AI" stands for artificial intelligence. Artificial Intelligence has 3 parts: 1) defining tasks computers can do efficiently and well, we call these Tasks; 2) figuring out how computers should do those tasks in different contexts by themselves--we call these Ability Levels; and 3) making sure that the programming language itself responds appropriately in every context we've defined-we call this Context Recognition or Context Awareness.

    Virtual assistants are the future. The more technology advances, the more time is saved and made available for higher quality tasks. In the near future, it will be difficult to find a human worker who isn't being assisted by an intelligent machine in one capacity or another. Robots have been around since before humans were even aware of their existence, so why not now? In fact, as long as humans have been performing manual labor there have been helpers beside them - animals! Nowadays though, they're taking on new roles acting as virtual secretaries and even lending a hand with errands that usually require person-to-person interaction instead of just a robot handling everything remotely.

    A virtual assistant is an online AI. The technical definition of AI is artificial intelligence - machines exhibiting human-like intelligent behaviour. If you think about any of your favourite sci-fi movies, the robot developed with one objective (usually smashing humanity) always has a need to perform complex tasks like formulating plans to take over the world, or testing coffee beans for pre-heat directions. Virtual assistants are not Artificial Intelligence because they do not deal with large data sets and arbitrarily complex tasks.

    Figuring out if an algorithm is AI (Artificial Intelligence) and defining what it is is not easy. Technically, we can define AI as a set of capabilities that come from solving specific problems with the process of intelligence. AI needs to pass the Turing test in order for it to be considered as such. This means its behavior has to be indistinguishable from that exhibited by humans."Artificial Intelligence" is just the "computer programmer's way of thinking about problems". AIs can perform tasks such as driving cars or diagnosing health conditions, but they need some form of feedback and instruction before they can do anything on their own.
