Say hello to Viki

Nokia To Be Working On Custom In House Ai Assistant

Nokia is reportedly set to introduce its own smart AI powered assistant app of its own, called Viki.

According to a recent trademark application found by Dutch blog GSMinfo, the new AI assistant's trademark reads "software for the creation and monitoring of mobile and web digital assistants working with knowledge and combining all data sources into a single chat and voice based interface". Sure, entering the smart AI field is quite risky now, given that Siri, Google Assistant, Cortana and Alexa are all well established, and Samsung apparently has something similar in the pipeline called Bixby.

This could be just what Nokia needs, as the company isnt exactly doing too well. The smartphone part of the company was taken by Microsoft in 2013, but the deal did not actually work out well. Nokia then continued as a telecommunications and technology company and late last year it got back the rights to use its name on mobile phones again. Reports suggest that Finnish company HMD Global has since inked a deal to produce handsets with the Nokia badge on them.

This could mean that we might see new Android phones this year from Nokia, which may already be running Viki. It is just a matter of waiting now. Are you a Nokia fan? Let us know in the comments below.
