What Is the Point of Me?
By Dmitry Bagrov
In his new post for Huffpost Tech UK Dmitry Bagrov, Managing Director of DataArt UK, discusses how Google's new messaging apps and LinkedIn's suggested canned responses influence human interactions, wondering whether we'll choose to outsource communications in the future all together or will yearn for deeper connection instead.
“New technology always throws up difficult questions. The expansion of suggested responses does pose the question what is the point of you and me in a world when Google can think and speak for us. But equally it gives us the opportunity to re-define what it means to be human in the modern world. It gives us the chance to gain an advantage in interactions that matter. But most importantly it allows us to connect on a deeper level, replacing the mundane question, answer conversations with ones, which really matter.”
