Smart Email and the Path to Digital Immortality

I attended last week, IBM Connections, where I checked out one of the most interesting products that you probably have never heard – “. IBM verse called” a new e-mail offering integrated social networking, although there how good it is, what really intrigued me in an e-mail client There was a lot of talk about putting the idea of cognitive computing.

“Cognitive computing,” a new way of saying “artificial intelligence,” because, you know, every once in a while to change the terms of the industry likes to mess with our heads. Whatever it is called, e-mail can be incredibly powerful idea.

I have a week of my product, which IBM verses, focuses on the user of the product has been fascinating email will close with. I can not tell you about it, you probably will not hear it.

The email

What we do with a lot of repetitive email. That’s why in the past rarely masters of their own correspondence is handled; Their secretaries would do it for them. Secretary, apprentice or assistant, meetings, given in response to inquiries setup birthday wishes – and even sent a direct message. They are often still makes them particularly strong role.

In fact, if you receive an email from a politician, chances are pretty good that it was not written by politicians. It could not have been written by a human being at all – rather than regurgitating the same text over and over again by some machines, mostly to annoy us.

And possibly the best – you could have an e-mail system, smart, not only what it has been used to secretaries, but could do a whole lot more. You see, a man in your email or other expressions of your thoughts will not be privy to all. Assistant can not know all of your friends or family, and of course will not be well versed in your personal and private life.

An e-mail system, most of all your daily correspondence, the handle, and it was tied up in the social networking smart e-mail system, and over time, it will come out probably better than you know yourself.

Insight is gained, it is not only the message, and automatically set priorities and handle tasks like changing appointments, but the answer for you, you can start it. You can opt to increase the charge.

Such a system could move emails as a chore for most of us, virtually eliminate repetitive emails, and even our phones while driving through dictating the response e-mail to allow us to be more accurate. We are one of the key elements of a command to write a response and let the system do the rest, or can.


Valuable advice

One of the advantages of e-mail system will be an intelligent dynamic advice. The system as it was made in an e-mail to be read. If you are like most of us, from time to time if you send an email you regretted later wrote. How to change the tone of a smart system for the routine observation and suggested to reword a message that can best accomplish your goals, or simply to inform you that the one you pick, could be fatal to your career, marriage, relationships have been written, safety or freedom.

I imagine the type of feature that Twitter will be very helpful. In any case, it can not only work on your behalf, but also can help you communicate more effectively and to keep you away from trouble after the fact, or perhaps suggest.

Take this hypothetical example, alert,. “It is said that e-mail could not be sent racist and sexually insensitive material you send all of the company can be considered not to be placed in a catastrophic reaction was about, oh, and you. Assh * Le forgot to capitalize.” Incredibly valuable it can be.


Digital Immortality

Let’s push the envelope a bit. If you want a digital avatar – an immortal digital impression a person has a number of projects designed to create. Capture the essence of this project is some process that makes each person unique. The easiest way to insights into the personality, speech patterns, history and knowledge of a person’s e-mail address will be dug.

No one is capable of rising to imitate, and finally a smart e-mail system that can produce a decent digital clone could interact primarily by mail, and possibly separate from the integration of speech and the right with a good sound sample, also vocal emulation is a pretty decent job.

The company’s founder, who died of a strategy to ask for advice or direction to a question Imagine being able to send an email. Granted, the system may have been stuck in a bit of time on that subject was unknown source of that person’s life will not be able to create a reaction, but over time, as well as enhancements in response to imitate, leaving the incremental version of a thinking learning.

To Steve Jobs, for example, let’s. I bet Apple’s executive staff would like to have a chat with her from time to time, and if the profile was created by Steve Jobs avatar, it’s likely that not only launch new products, but also to communicate with an audience.

Much of email correspondence that would allow such a thing still exists, and there is a chance that at some point in the future, Steve is a digital version of the record can be made.


Smarter than your email: Wrapping Up

It hit me the smart TV, smart cars, smart phones, and now with the smart email, that a time may come when we may not be smart enough to ourselves, and we will make a significant upgrade.

Until then, something like smart email bridge that saves our time and our incredibly stupid things, like writing an e-mail from the anger that was able to give.

Nevertheless, I can t help but wonder how long before it’s the smart one of the things we decided it would be foolish to interface with.

Like many of you, I live email. However, we really did not see much improvement from an Outlook email was launched in 1990. It’s just that, in large part our fault that we did not really change much as I like. Still, it’s well past time that someone came up with a different idea.

IBM is one of the signs of social networks and client bases to feed your e-mail account. It is based on the priority learn to organize your contacts. The end of the first out – the important thing to see in front of you and you can more easily blow off your important stuff.

IBM’s cognitive ability is added to the product, but I imagine it’s much less capable than the above involved. Right now, it’s tone and structure of an e-mail with the assistance you can provide to the draft, but Watson becomes more able, I hope, are among the advanced capabilities of its future.

This product, it was able to grasp, though it will be enough to change your email experience, as you will see, and it’s much more efficient and written communication you can conduct effective.

Ironically – at least for me, given that I have a job when the project was the integration of voice mail with e-mail, IBM – it does not have that feature. Still, how email is handled in other ways it is a big step. IBM signs of emails rethinks, and I live in e-mail, my product of the week.
