As voice technologies are advancing at fast pace, World Economic Forum identified five main stages in this evolution:


  • Instruct: one-way instruction to a voice assistant to perform an action

  • Interact: two-ways discussion, with suggestions (where we are today)

  • Predict: using internal and external data, and machine learning to provide predictions

  • Empathize: similar to a caregiver providing practical and emotional support

  • Relate: voice assistant becomes a friend or partner who provides distinct emotional
