In Russia, they will create a voice assistant for pensioners that will help the older generation use digital services, computers, and also allow you to contact emergency services if necessary, writes RT, citing the press service of NTI.
Voice assistant “Nina” is currently working in test mode. It was developed by the team of the Grozny State Oil Technical University named after academician M.D. Millionshchikov within the framework of the project and educational intensive of the NTI University 2035.
The creators of the application note that it compares favorably with Western and Russian counterparts. Most of them are not active offline, unable to write dictation, and also do not know how to independently operate a computer. Experts note that these functions will be included in Nina.
“We make the service itself intuitive so that every user, regardless of age and health status, can understand it. The assistant will simply control the computer with your voice for you. The people around them – parents, relatives, acquaintances, friends and even doctors – will be able to convey information about it to elderly people or users with disabilities, ”the developers of the assistant emphasized.
The mobile version of the assistant implies the ability to synchronize with a computer. “We also put into the software the ability to contact emergency services in case of a sharp deterioration in the user’s well-being,” the developers emphasized.
Earlier, the Russians were exposed to the main danger of voice assistants. Such applications listen to the environment waiting for commands and can record everything that happens.
