Assistants Vs Plug-in
We can assimilate assistants to plug-ins that act on, and for the benefit of a support software to give new features or capabilities. They allow you to add computer capacities, without having to reprogram all the technological environment. Like a plug-in, assistants allows the users to add their own features in a personnalized and independent way. The plug-in is not autonomous, assistants are, because they have their own engine or runtime. Only the assistant can imitate the action of operators.
Assistant Vs Robot
An Assistant is not only a simple robot software. The function of a software assistant is always interacting with the environment and / or the operator’s. It is part of a value creation goal (time, services, reliability) that goes beyond the digital robotic performance, essentially liberator of operators.
