Can’t Stop Talking: Alexa, Siri, Google and Other VCD’s

Robot, Humanoids, Voice Activated Assistants, Artificial Intelligence

Are you concerned about the continued development of smart gadgets increasing their ability to listen, think, speak and feel more human than humans? When we think about science fiction movies like The Terminator, iRobot, Maximum Overdrive, RoboCop, 2001: A Space Odessey, The Machine, Transcendence, Project Almanac, Robot and Frank, and The Matrix Revolutions, many people worry these smart gadgets will overpower the world. Voice Command Devices (VCD) are evidence of how science and technology leaped into an incredible world of artificial intelligence (AI).

Voice-activated smart devices such as Alexa, Siri, and Google are programmed to interact, play music, provide the weather, play audiobooks, keep up with your calendar appointments and provide other real-time information requested by the user. One funny, but kind of freaky occurrence has been reports made by individuals who were on the telephone with someone who owns one of these VCD’s and heard those devices suddenly start to talk on their own. Whoa! Talk about ET go home! If you don’t want these VCD’s to suddenly start talking in the middle of a conversation, then you probably better deactivate the listening mode. Just sayin’.

Needless to say, as advanced as these devices already are, we think we will see an increase of even more advanced technological applications that will produce the next generation of VCD’s throughout many industries. Developers think it is absurd to believe we can be bombarded by humanoids and other smart gadgets, but the reality of it all, it is a very real concern to the people. Man vs. Machine…who will be the ultimate victor in this competition? If you don’t think this is a competition, then you certainly have not paid attention to the aggressive integration of artificial intelligence over the past decade. Get ready because an even bigger AI revolution is in the works and is on its way!
