Quoted: Intel’s personal assistant doesn’t have his head in the cloud

“How annoying is it when you’re in Yosemite and your personal assistant doesn’t work because you can’t get a wireless connection?”

Mike Bell, Intel’s head of wearables, who thinks about these agonizing tech problems for the rest of us. Bell tells Quartz that Intel is working on voice-recognition technology that — unlike the famous and sensitive Siri (and her cousins) — don’t live in the cloud. The personal assistant and voice-control tool, which is meant to be more responsive because it also would sit on more powerful Intel mobile processors, is named Jarvis. Now it’s time to ask Jarvis just where he’s going: into smartphones by Apple, Samsung, or other manufacturers?
