Move Over Siri, Alohar Wants To Learn Everything About You – Forbes

Imagine you wake up one morning before work with a head cold. You decide to take the day off and stay in bed past the time when you usually pull into your office parking space and settle down in your cubicle. Now imagine that your phone, sensing your exact location and understanding your daily schedule, predicts that you’ve come down with something and makes an appointment–without asking you–at your doctor’s office.

For the developers at Alohar Mobile, this hypothetical situation, where your phone can predict and make decisions for you, isn’t too far away. It’s the “Siri after Siri,” says Sam Liang, co-founder and CEO of Alohar, whose next-level mobile platform plans to make smart phones smarter with the ability to learn about their users.

Imagine another situation: You’re driving to your doctor’s appointment. You get the green to pull through an intersection, but another driver–late to his lunch meeting–runs a red light and smashes into your driver-side door. Now imagine that your phone, registering that you were driving and that you were hit through its motion sensors, predicts you were possibly injured and signals an ambulance through a 911 dispatcher.

You don’t have to dream. Alohar already created it.

Strange Random Intelligence Quote:

Knowing a great deal is not the same as being smart; intelligence is not information alone but also judgment, the manner in which information is collected and used” – Dr. Carl Sagan (American Astronomer, Writer and Scientist, 1934-1996)
