While I have read a couple of articles recently that talk about how “machines are taking over”, I have a slightly different perspective on this. Perhaps machines are just mis-understood? They are not
trying to take over -they are just trying to help -help the human race get more done and be more efficient. And a part of that is learning how to communicate with us.
Communicating with machines used to be difficult – the responsibility fell solely on our shoulders. It felt like I was doing all the work in the relationship. If I wanted a custom
background on my old desktop computer – I had to write a small program on my PC. If I wanted my thermostat to do something – I had to press the correct sequence of buttons and codes.
Now, machines can communicate with us in a more natural way. We can physically talk to them, the way we talk to a friend, and even better – the machines can listen and respond appropriately! I change channels just by telling my television what show I want to watch.
