""Giving personality to a bot helps a company connect emotionally to customers and strengthen branding, especially in financial services, a sector in which products are largely similar. But with competitive edge, bots also bring business risks, says Mr. Masiero.



The AI that powers many of these virtual assistants can be unpredictable. Bots can be programmed to learn continuously through conversation or to stick to a limited set of questions and answers. Mistakes from bots that frustrate or offend customers are often public and easy to share on social media, says David Nichols, a principal and Americas advisory innovation leader at Ernst & Young LLP. In 2016 users taught a Microsoft Corp. AI chatbot called Tay to spew anti-Semitic rants not long after its online debut."

Don't hold back, TechCrunch, tell us how you really feel.
https://lnkd.in/dYvSs4d In truth, I agree that the ratings system can be gamed. You can survey people to find out which news outlets they trust the most, but often they trust the ones that are most in line with their own political views and biases. I'm of the opinion that you should almost never trust a single news source, particularly on politically charged issues that tend to color coverage. But do I think big oil is behind the negative press on Tesla cars? Not really.

"Having a single, transferable user profile would be very similar to what Facebook does with the Facebook Connect button, but with one huge difference: Facebook would have no say into which company can or cannot access the user profile, and what they can do with it. There would be no more personal data lock-in, and no more legal terms and condition shenanigans. As a user, I would decide who gets access to what and for what.

As this Universal Digital Profile (UDP) starts becoming mainstream, an entire new economy will emerge, from personal data clouds to personal identity aggregators or data monetization platforms. All those ideas that have been floating around for years but couldn’t be scaled due to a lack of interoperability will finally come to life."

"On Tuesday, the American Civil Liberties Union led a group of more than two dozen civil rights organizations that asked Amazon to stop selling its image recognition system, called Rekognition, to law enforcement. The group says that the police could use it to track protesters or others whom authorities deem suspicious, rather than limiting it to people committing crimes."
