How to build a smart home with a little help from your palantirs
The future of personal digital assistants (PDAs) looks bright: we’re finally getting the next generation of devices with more sensors and more advanced capabilities.
But the best thing about them isn’t the power or the sensors: it’s the ability to learn from us.
That’s why Palantir Technologies has launched a new PDA app, which lets you record your interactions with a personal PDA and make a personalized recommendation based on it.
In short, the new Palantirs PDA software can teach you things you didn’t know you wanted to know about PDA.
And it’s free.
But, like many of the best personal-computer apps on the market, the app can’t do everything you’d expect.
For example, it’s not quite a PDA, because there are still some limitations: you can’t create a PDI from scratch, you can only have one PDA at a time, and you can edit PDI’s contents only on the device.
That means you can take the app offline, but you can still manage the PDA with your own PDA on another device.
And in case you’ve forgotten what you want to learn, PalantIR’s app can also save a list of topics you can use as inspiration.
The software, which was created by Palantiris engineers, has been tested on a range of PDA devices, from smartphones to tablets, but it’s also available on Macs, iPhones, Android phones and Windows computers.
The app is designed to make the process of learning PDA more user-friendly and easier.
Palantiri hopes the app will become a standard part of your PDA setup, so that even those who are less experienced with PDA might find it easier to learn.
The company is still in beta, and will release its app later this year, but Palantiaries team is already planning to build out its PDA platform and will start selling its app in the first quarter of 2018.
So far, the company has built a beta version of the Pda app for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and also launched the Pads for Apple Macs and iPhones.
The Palantiers PDA has been downloaded more than 10 million times, and the company is hoping to expand the app to other PDA models and platforms.
“We are very excited to launch the first of our PDA apps to the masses,” says Palantriaries founder and chief executive Peter Ruggieri.
“Our goal is to bring this revolutionary PDA to market by the end of 2018.”
