In full disclosure, during the two-year stretch I had an iPhone, I availed myself of the artificial intelligence feature Siri, perhaps on a dozen occasions.
Truth be told, she kind of creeped me out – sort of like a female version of Hal from 2001, A Space Odyssey, although I’m sure, far less malevolent. And I would guess she was helpful maybe 50 percent of the time.
And now that I have an Android, I’ve yet to use the Google Now app.
But my feelings toward A.I. notwithstanding, it’s a concept that’s not going away anytime soon.
