Natural Langauage User Interfaces are making their way into useful products

As the desktop virtualization space matures, the main platforms have grown their feature set to include many features that used to require third party software. This has been good for us, because the third party vendors are pushed towards the fringe to find unique solutions to problems that present themselves as opposed to resting on their laurels. App management is one of those things, and we’ve covered it a lot. I noticed at VMworld, though, that monitoring platforms like Lakeside SysTrack, Liquidware Labs Stratusphere, and even VMware’s TrustPoint (based on Tanium, which Jack wrote about a few weeks ago) are beginning to use natural language queries to make it easier to extract relevant information from all the data they collect.

These Natural Language User Interfaces, or NLUIs, are nothing new. In one way or another we’ve seen them for years, but until recently they’ve been nothing more than gimmicks. They’ve been buggy, or limited to a very small subset of words that you can ask. Often times, the phrases you could use weren’t natural at all. Instead of asking “What time do the Buckeyes play?” you would have to ask “Find the time Ohio State plays football on Saturday.” It’s hardly natural, and it’s definitely not conversational. Really, those systems are just using speech to text and throwing out everything but keywords, which is something we’ve been able to do for well over a decade.
