A Personal Assistant Created from the Crowd by Smart Software

Apple’s virtual personal assistant, Siri, may never sleep, but it also lacks the smarts of a real personal assistant. A human assistant, in contrast, can work on much more complex tasks but comes at a much higher price.

A new alternative, called Premier, aims to surpass them both. Outwardly, it’s a capable, round-the-clock personal helper; behind the scenes, it consists of a crowd of workers corralled by smart software to respond intelligently to any kind of request.
 
Premier was developed by MobileWorks, a crowdsourcing company, which is currently testing the new assistant with some existing customers.
