Title
(EN) DIGITAL ASSISTANT HARDWARE ABSTRACTION
(FR) ABSTRACTION MATÉRIELLE D'ASSISTANT NUMÉRIQUE
Abstract
(EN) This relates to intelligent automated assistants and, more specifically, to intelligent context sharing and task performance among a collection of devices with intelligent automated assistant capabilities. An example method includes, at a first electronic device participating in a context-sharing group associated with a first location: receiving a user voice input; receiving, from a context collector, an aggregate context of the context-sharing group; providing at least a portion of the aggregate context and data corresponding to the user voice input to a remote device; receiving, from the remote device, a command to perform one or more tasks and a device identifier corresponding to a second electronic device; and transmitting the command to the second electronic device based on the device identifier, wherein the command causes the second electronic device to perform the one or more tasks.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des assistants automatisés intelligents et, plus spécifiquement, le partage de contexte intelligent et la réalisation d'une tâche parmi un ensemble de dispositifs ayant des capacités d'assistant automatisé intelligent. Un procédé donné à titre d'exemple comprend, au niveau d'un premier dispositif électronique participant à un groupe de partage de contexte associé à un premier emplacement : la réception d'une entrée vocale d'utilisateur; la réception, depuis un collecteur de contexte, d'un contexte agrégé du groupe de partage de contexte; la fourniture, à un dispositif distant, d'au moins une partie du contexte agrégé et de données correspondant à l'entrée vocale d'utilisateur; la réception, depuis le dispositif distant, d'une commande pour réaliser une ou plusieurs tâches et d'un identifiant de dispositif correspondant à un second dispositif électronique; et la transmission de la commande au second dispositif électronique sur la base de l'identifiant de dispositif, la commande amenant le second dispositif électronique à réaliser la ou les tâches.
