It’s interesting to see just how fast practical technology is moving in the machine learning space. For example the rise of the intelligent virtual assistants. The new assistants from companies including Google, Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, Viv, and many more are getting exponentially better at understanding human language and interacting with us in an increasingly natural way. What kind of jobs will they automate in the next few years?
“Christian made a truly inspiring speech on innovation which generated a broader perspective for the law enforcement community in terms of novelty and exponential growth of changes in our society.”
“Fantastic, Very Inspiring, encourages reflection, impressive, Best Session of the Day! (score 8.4)”

“Christian was the ideal speaker for an inspiring and energetic way to open the process Congress. In rapid succession, he outlines the rapidly changing world we live in and shows the impact of technological innovations on people and organizations. He put our audience thinking early in the day (score 8,5)”

It won’t be long, two to three years is my educated guess, before we will be using these virtual assistants to do all kinds of tasks for us. Fancy a night out? You will probably be able to ask your virtual butler to arrange a taxi, book the table of your favourite restaurant and buy your tickets to the movie. It’s looking increasingly likely that your personal money will be run through one of these companies, and the costs of all of those things will be deducted from the budget that you give them. The tech company that wins this race is likely to get a tiny slice of a very big pie of your spending in the future. We already have Google Assistant, Amazon’s Alexa, and speech recognition software becoming almost as accurate as a human listener.
After we mastered machine learning systems and developed many focused/narrow intelligence applications (intelligent tools for specific tasks), we realised that we could connect and combine these narrow intelligences into more general intelligent applications. These combined intelligences work like the search engines of today (Google and Bing). Search engines were indexing webpages with information so they were able to redirect people with questions to specific website. The general intelligences of today work in a similar way, and have developed them into artificial identities. These intelligence engines are indexing intelligence and themselves tap into many modular narrow intelligence solutions and combine them into one general intelligent identity. So instead of just having a ‘search engine’ for information we have more of an ‘intelligence engine’ that taps into available, standardised sources of intelligence.
