A Robot in Your Pocket: AI Powered Applications - SXSW Film/Interactive 2013 by SXSW published on 2013-03-13T20:39:31Z Through advances in artificial intelligence and data science, Web sites and apps are evolving. There is a new breed of “robot” applications focused entirely on working on our behalf. Search robots like Siri turn mobile devices into our personal assistants. Location apps like Foursquare, Radar and Highlight alert us to interesting people and places around us. Customization tools get to know us based on the things we read about, listen to and share, personalizing our online experience to bring the content we want to see on any website or app right to the top. While the tools of today allow us to work less, the robots of the future will eliminate much of the work in the first place. Come hear from a panel of experts that will talk about the robots of tomorrow. Imagine the applications in fields like education, health care or personal finance (wouldn’t you love a robot that does your taxes?). As the Internet starts to work for us, it will enrich our lives in ways we can’t even imagine.
