Kittlaus (of Viv Labs) says the end result will be a digital assistant who knows what you want before you ask for it. He envisions someone unsteadily holding a phone to his mouth outside a dive bar at 2 am and saying, “I’m drunk.” Without any elaboration, Viv would contact the user’s preferred car service, dispatch it to the address where he’s half passed out, and direct the driver to take him home. No further consciousness required.
A beautiful vision, and a fitting evolutionary goal – technology that will help drunks. The key quote is “No further consciousness required” at which point we salute our new AI overlords.
