Thoughtful piece from Jeffrey Mincey on what may happen in a world full of bots.
Today, our Muslim President is gone, replaced by a Russian spy. Well, that’s what some people say. Who am I to disagree? Whatever you think of the current political situation, it does not appear as if anyone is minding the Future Store and my greatest fear and joy is not Congress exercising impeachment rights over the Constitution’s emoluments clause. No, its what Siri wrought and what happens when the technology world is completely overrun by bots; chat bots, robots, stateless bots, loyal bots, and eventually, the bots that look, sound, and act like humans, but they’re really just robots.
Just remember, everything comes in stages.
Apple will push Apple Glasses to the world in the next year or two, and we’ll begin to see lifelike bots online, fully interactive and quite human-like. Then the revolution will begin with bots you can buy.
I’d buy one.
