Here are the slides that I used this week in two events. It gives you a good overview of what can be done these days with Assistant Apps.
What is an Assistant App?
The Google Assistant is Google’s conversational software for helping you get things done in your world. It is the culmination of all of Google’s research in AI, ML and NLP. It runs on various devices, including the Google Home which launched in 2017, as well as many Android and iOS devices.
Actions on Google is the third-party platform for the Google Assistant, allowing you, the developer to manage a conversation between your service and the user.
An interesting times!
