#Nokia is reportedly working on a virtual personal assistant called ‘Viki’

Nokia has reportedly filed a trademark in the EU for the name ‘Viki’. Spotted by GSMInfo, Viki is described in the trademark as a “software for the creation and monitoring of mobile and web assistants working with digital knowledge and combining all data sources into a single chat and voice-based interface.” Though it doesn’t explicitly mention the words virtual assistant, the description is pretty clear at what Viki will be.

With Viki integrated into its smartphones, Nokia could be going up against established players like Apple’s Siri, Microsoft’s Cortana, and Google Assistent.

  • Nokia is lately investing a lot of money in IoT. An AI like Viki would be helpful in connecting all those IoT device Nokia (Withings) has and has planned for us. 🙂
