The next Columbus Futurists monthly forum will be Tuesday, June 9 from 12:00-1:00 PM over Zoom. The topic for this month is “Conversations with Alexa.”
Voice recognition interfaces like Alexa and Siri will be the chief interface with the digital. What are the implications of this shift away form keyboards and written text, when voice and speech become the dominant modes of communication? It is possible that smart speakers, powered by artificial intelligence, will one day allow us to ask more sophisticated questions than we do now? In such a scenario, Alexa would develop a broader and more complex range of responses. Will we start to have real conversations? If conversation is defined as dialogue between two or more people where news and ideas are exchanged, might we start to have proper conversations with Alexa?
