Research and analysis of a set of cutting-edge technologies, integrated into a prototype software managed through a virtual assistant to innovate domotics as we know it today.
The personal assistant developed, to be possibly represented as a digital figure (or “avatar”) must be able to learn the users behaviors and predict their needs, as well as, to interact in a natural way.
Therefore, the research considered the following issues:
The research is aimed at the analysis, in-depth examination and substantial enhancement of the universe of virtual assistants, perceived as an interface which connects the user and the living/working area through advanced domotics. The study of the virtual assistant’s graphic interface mainly focused on the graphic and functional look of the avatar representing it (through the analysis of media, such as Augmented/Virtual Reality, holograms, monitors), examining the methods, which allow the interaction with the user, and pointing out the strengths of effective communication.
