According to Panasonic, its Arbo virtual assistant is based on machine learning that provides intelligent usage suggestions to users. The name of this virtual assistant has been derived from Esperanto, which means a framework used to support climbing plants. The Arbo virtual assistant learns the user's behavior, with time and location, to provide profile-based suggestions like prompting Settings changes and highlighting commonly used apps. It also prompts Bluetooth pairing if users have previously paired their smartphones with a nearby device. The Panasonic has also clarified that these are early days for Arbo, and several new features can be added in 'Phase 2' - including making changes to third-party apps once permissions are granted. All that Arbo learns will be taken forward into future Panasonic smartphones that the user buys.
