Why Google A.I. is the last user interface

(Read my column: https://goo.gl/xRV4ur )

Star Trek got it right: In the future, we'll use computers by talking to them.

Google held an event this week and new hardware got most of the attention. Google unveiled a couple of Google-built Pixel phones, Google Wi-Fi home mesh routers, the Google Home virtual assistant appliance, a new 4k Chromecast Ultra streaming media box and the Daydream View VR headset.

Critics say Google is copying and competing directly with Apple with the Pixel phones and with Amazon with Home. But this misses the point.

Google believes that artificial intelligence (A.I.) virtual assistants (VA) and the conversational user interface (CUI) will largely supplant search engines and mobile apps for many users. We're moving into an "A.I.-first world," according to Google CEO +Sundar Pichai.

Simply put, all that means is you talk to a computer. It "understands" what you say no matter how you say it. Then the computer does things for you based on those conversations.

Google is betting the company on its own version of this interface, called Google Assistant. And it's a bet I think they'll win.

Here's why:

The United Kingdom (U.K.) may vote to leave the European Union (EU) on June 23. The implications of this – for the EU as well as the U.K. - are important … and overwhelmingly negative.

Reverse and frugal innovation approaches have their limits when it comes to health impact for the poor. We need more ways to provide high-quality, affordable products to low-income people.

It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see. 

-Henry David Thoreau

                                                                            

Power without love is reckless and abusive, and love without power is sentimental and anemic. Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice, and justice at its best is power correcting everything that stands against love.

-Martin Luther King Jr.

                                                                             

Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It's a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity." 

-Pema Chodron

                                                                            

In medio stat virtus.  (In the center stands virtue.)

-Horace

                                                                            

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.

-Rumi

                                                                            

To dare is to lose one's footing momentarily. To not dare is to lose oneself.

-Soren Kierkegaard

                                                                            

Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.

-Albert Einstein

                                                                            

If I give you a pfennig, you will be one pfennig richer and I'll be one pfennig poorer. But if I give you an idea, you will have a new idea, but I shall still have it, too.

-Albert Einstein
