The current reminder creation processing systems in smartphones in today's world is very reactive and not very usable. The smart phone user has to either invoke a voice assistant explicitly and create tasks and todo lists in a mechanical fashion or use a manually maintain a todo list. This approach is counter productive since user has to interact with the device which is an overhead especially when the need for a reminder or a todo comes from a phone conversation the user had on the device itself. With the technology and processing power available in phones, apps and cloud today this problem can be solved in a cognitive way. The solution described identifies the components and method to automatically analyse, classify and process a mobile conversation and take necessary action.

In a conventional voice assistive mechanism in mobile devices, the user inputs his speech to create a pre-defined task and the device interprets the speech word to word and does the task.

For example, someone calls up the user and a social or a business conversation starts. At some point in the call the caller invites the callee to a venue at a specified time.
