Avoiding the Christmas shoppers I pedaled 23.5 miles on my Schwinn 170 this morning. My totals are now recorded at 21,574.5 miles; 34,720.9 kilometers.
I am, virtually, located this morning at Strada Capalbio Pescia Fiorentina, 5, 58011 Capalbio GR, Italy.
What does it mean that “Google is looking into launching a new mobile based messenger service underpinned by artificial intelligence”? According to Theo Priestley’s article in Forbes/Tech, Dec 23, 2015 “How it works exactly is still an unknown, but according to the WSJ, ‘instead of typing a query into Google’s search engine, users will send questions as text messages, to which chatbots will respond.’”
And here is my question – If this is and will be possible, when and how will we know or not know that we are chatting or texting with a fem/guybot, complete with AI, who is substituting for the friend, or human, that we sort of think that we’re talking to? And if the friend is a social media acquaintance, how do we ascertain that that Facebook/Instagram/Twitter friend is truly of flesh, blood and bones?
It is the Holiday Season, and this morning my early fasting blood sugar count jumped 20 points.
Suppose I could have done with a waffle raft instead…but I wanted the moist brownies, and the ice-cream, and the Maraschino cherries. But I was good, I asked the counter attendant to hold the whipped cream. (Just wanted to make sure that I did not consume any aerosol chemicals.)
