Virtual personal assistants have really come out to be the standout pieces of technology in the last few years. For anyone who uses them, they have become a beacon of hope and help throughout the day. Still, some people believe that VPAs are going to go the same way as Tamagotchi’s and beepers – but that isn’t the case.

The time is coming where humans will start to explore the deeper reaches of space on a much more consistent level. NASA has already used unmanned shuttles, probes, rovers, and exploratory ships to find out more information about galaxies near and far. We have found out more about the size, scope, and shape of the universe because of technological advancements. Now, AI is going to help us do even more.
We all talked at least once to a virtual personal assistant (VPA) in our life. It could be Siri, Alexa, Cortana or even the new Google assistant – they are everywhere. Most of the time though, people stop using their personal assistants after the first interaction and could barely find a “common language”.
