While a full blown service at a major travel brand has yet to materialise, companies such as EvatureÂ (or Eva, Expert Virtual Assistant)Â are trying their best to push the technology into the mainstream.
Eva was one of the APIs thrown in to the pot forÂ THack London this week, with founder Tal Weiss also having a go at creating his own hack for the event.
Here is Weiss demoing his hack, including useful feedback towards the end of the clip for developers. Watch out for the “what is the meaning of life?” segment at around 5 mins 20 secs:
Eva is already full formed product – for the hack Weiss simply tapped in the plugged APIs in to the existing and underlying technology.
Unfortunately for Weiss and Evature, on this occasionÂ THack London was won by TripCommon.
