In my role as a blogger for Witlingo, I get to delve into the world of voice-first technology; smart speakers, apps (called skills) for smart speakers, and the AI voices for the big companies. Those include Siri, Bixby, Cortana, and others. And when I say delve, I mean concentrate as if someone has put me in control of a space shuttle without instruction!
Last week, my post concerned whether kids need to be polite to their AI assistants. The idea was sparked by an excellent post elsewhere that argued, they don’t. The writer’s idea was that children shouldn’t treat AI as if it’s a real person. I disagree and I explain why. Please visit Witlingo HERE for the post titled, Kids, Courtesy and AI. Thanks!
