In the document presented by the Finnish company, there is talk of an intelligent assistant who receives the Viki trade name .

Likewise, it is mentioned that it will have technology that works as “software for the creation and monitoring of web and mobile assistants, working with digital information and combining all data sources in an individual interface based on voice and chat”. < / p>

At the moment it is unknown how long it will take Nokia to realize that project and launch it, but it is speculated that could be seen soon in the smartphones governed by Android launched by the brand .

In any case, it seems clear that its arrival is quite late compared to other ICT companies that have launched similar technology in the past.
