Benefits

Microsoft sees the Dr. Who engine enabling a variety of Web services that are specialized in particular domains, such as scheduling, and which can be looped into human conversations in order to execute tasks. Web services are basically software programs residing on the Internet that can be accessed to carry out a particular business function. For example, a Web service could be asked to find a certain type of restaurant nearby. One can also imagine location-based services being applied to automatically determine the user’s current location.

It’s easy to see that when location-based services, Web services, multimodal user interaction, and spoken-language understanding techniques are combined, they start to open up powerful opportunities for computers to create new forms of value that can improve our productivity. Being able to speak to your mobile device and have it execute your instructions is a powerful capability. Being able to extend this to other automated Web services on the network improves this capability even further.
