Alabot has announced its partnership with mobile-worx, a leading mobility
solutions firm to launch Intelligent SMS Search in India.
The service will be powered by a "bot"a self directed intelligent
agent, who understands natural human language and interacts with users using
non syntax based data inputs.
This Intelligent SMS Search will enable users to search the directory of users
from open social networks, mobile content, local business directories, local
deals, train / flight tickets, hotel deals and movie tickets for major cities
in India. Users can eventually transact through the service.
The service will be completely supported through mobile advertising as a
primary business model and contextually relevant ads will be inserted during
the conversation as recommendations by the bot.
This interactive interface represents the next step in the usability of mobile
SMS applications and will remove the frustrating roadblock of remembering
keywords of short code based services by combining and aggregating local search
in an extremely user friendly interface.
Users can search using phrases from English, Hindi and other languages without
having to remember syntax, sentence structure or multiple short codes
Both Alabot and mobile-worx are in the process of forming alliances with a slew
of content partners that will drive the search service.
