En fin, las cosas que dicen algunos por no informarse. En fin, dejo mas links sobre Tellme, ha sido bueno traerlo al hilo ya que es una herramienta integrada en W8 y WP. Tellme esta en 26 lenguajes nativos.
Un poco sobre la historia de Tellme, una idea bastante vieja aunque algunos lo ignoren y peor aun... lo nieguen:
A Little Historical Background
When Microsoft acquired Tellme Networks in March 2007, company management had a pretty good idea of all the goodies in the hosted speech application provider’s portfolio. In its press announcement it called the company “a leading provider of voice services for everyday life, including nationwide directory assistance [DA], enterprise customer service and voice-enabled mobile search.” During the ensuing years the DA operations, which were offered on a wholesale basis to wireless and landline carriers, came under competitive pressure from “free” services, especially GOOG-411 from Google.
In both the mobile and enterprise customer care realm, Microsoft anticipated that it could leverage the “on-demand” nature of capabilities in Tellme’s cloud “to advance natural user interfaces across Microsoft products to benefit billions of customers worldwide.”
By 2009, Tellme had become the basis of Bing Mobile – supporting natural-language mobile search and applications running in Tellme’s cloud (including some developed by Voxify) were showcasing impressive, conversational customer care for financial services companies (Amex), airlines (Continental and – soon – United), Avis Rent-a-Car and many others.
