Expect more of this kind of article. Behind the chrome skin of the shiny, new, smart personal assistants may not be anything more sinister than a land-grab for personal information, but gradually (creepingly), we seem to become more vulnerable to whatever they evolve into, whether that evolution is by design, or by mistake.
Prefer driving my Land Rover the traditional way, although the smartphone option is sadly not likely with the limited electronics in a 97 300TDi.
But Jaguar Land Rover engineers have developed the remote driving app for the specific use-case of control over rough terrain, not really for extracting your vehicle from awkward parking. I’d be surprised if more car makers didn’t have similar products in development.
According to Dag Kittlaus over at TechCrunch at last we’re heading for a Cambrian Explosion in AI led by personal assistants like Siri and Cortana.
The unlocking of AI ultimately allows this Cambrian Explosion to finally find the light of day and enables a dynamic new world to emerge. As your trusted assistant becomes more and more capable as thousands of developers join the marketplace, it brings scale and breadth to something that AI has aspired to for decades. It scales usefulness.
