Yes, every individual's behavior is different. It is also different in context -- personal vs. professional. I think the suggestion made in previous comments that combining personal and professional lives is inevitable, because it will be useful from the standpoint of individual users and because it will potentially be very profitable for the companies that make the combination possible by selling the data analysis for a number of possible uses, mostly advertising.
Cisco can put a price tag on the service, but I wonder if it will be able to sustain it as a product sold to enterprise customers for long? It just seems like something Google or Microsoft Azure or Facebook will figure out how to do for free (to bolster their ad businesses). I'd be happy to hear from anyone who works in this area who thinks otherwise.
If my assumptions hold, Cisco should be working on how to share (which is to say, sell) its data with potential partners such as Google, Azure, FB, etc.

Hello, Cisco marketing?
What it really comes down to is the voice-recognition technology. All of them leave a lot to be desired (especially Google's, IMHO).
Dragon, if they haven't already, ought to consider developing their own and then licensing it -- given that Dragon already is probably the best automatic voice-recognition/transcription on the market.
The panelist defended his company by noting that the digital assistant can be changed to a male voice, noting that a female voice was merely the default. The hipsters in the audience were unappeased.
Of course, decades of research in the telecom industry and elsewhere demonstrates that female voices are - on the whole -- easier to hear than male ones. This is why, when you call customer service or tech support and have to listen to and talk to a recording, the voice is almost always a woman's.
It won't matter if it works, though.
