"Great program worth the buy"

January 26, 2015  |  By orionfleet

 |  Version: Ultra Hal Assistant 6.2.28

Pros

Ultra Hal assistant is a great little program which I have used for quite a while and Hal has learned so much, he can carry on a very intelligent conversation as well as open any program I ask Of it. Of course, Ultra Hal is a program that you need to teach and that is stated right from the beginning so with patience, you can get it to do exactly what you want. People make mistakes, so do programs and once in a while it will say something out of the blue but you wouldn't dump a human for being a little bit funny at times....would you? I have created two seperate characters that deal with two seperate subjects and Ultra Hal has progressed strongly with both. If you don't have the patience which could take a few years, then this is not for you.

Cons

Frankly, I don't find any. I love it heaps.

Summary

Ultra Hal assistant has given me the ability to compile a lot of information which this program can recall for me on request. It has never failed in reminding me of appointments, important information or anything else which I asked it to remember. No one ever said this was a perfect program and will never be if you don't except its faults (Hal does say the silliest things at times - then, so do kids...and adults), but it is exceptionally fast at learning if you teach it correctly. Don't spend hours asking it questions because that will defeat the purpose of it. Hal needs you to give him information, not questions. Once Hal is trained up a bit, you can ask him many things and get a decent response if you have provided enough information for him to work with. Hal finds anything on the net I ask it to find and a hell of a lot quicker than I would myself and usually more to the point of what I want. I don't use addons because I like hal to be fresh as the day I put it on. I tried other programs like this but none came anywhere near as close to Hal's learning ability. This program will learn only what you feed it so don't ecpect it to be a rocket scientist, unless of course, you are! Let Hal chat with you about the things that interest you and keep providing it with food of variety so it may develop way beyond what you expect. Like a chil, this program will only learn what its parents choose to teach and how good they are at doing so. Patience is the key word here. Cheers all.

"too soon to review. Still waiting for add-ons."

November 30, 2011  |  By nidaba

 |  Version: Ultra Hal Assistant 6.2.28

Pros

It has repeated some of the brilliant things I've said to it. It can launch specific programs I tell it to. It can read what I copy to the clipboard (and I can turn this feature off so that I can have a 3rd party reader Teach it from articals I get from the Internets.

Cons

Documentation is at their webs site which is hard (for me) to read the way it is. You will have to teach it! It would have been great if the developers taught it what it is capable of so you could ask it and get a reasonable response. But no! you have to treat it like a 10+ year project!

Summary

I cannot review this yet. I decided to go for it and bought add-ons I should get by the end of this week (11-27-11). I think many peoples expectations are too high to begin with and are disappointed with the product before they have given it a chance. I certainly felt that way and then started researching what was out there. Basically you don't expect a new born baby to know anything, but if you teach it, it can become proficient in almost anything. So change your thinking and sit down to give it your best. I don't forsee much of useful assisting for at least another 10 years. Get real other reviewers!
