It turns out that the same skills I’ve been using and espousing since 1995 – based on pattern recognition – are those that have provided the breakthrough in AI, and, soon, in the next Internet Assistant.
No matter what one calls the latest wave of assistants – Internet Assistants (our term), Intelligent Assistants, Conversational Assistants (Viv Labs’ term), Personal Assistants – or what name one gives them (Siri, Ava, Alex, Cortana, Google Now), it’s clear that we want to think of them as fellow human beings, trapped in a box and awaiting our every command.
This is not the case.
