The Next Big Thing – AI or Bust

To be honest, I am still getting used to the mobile revolution. Indeed, I am still on my first smartphone. Well, in fact it is my second. The first one went insane and so I threw it out. The second one (an Iphone 6s) is more friendly and I actually use it.

But the writing is already on the wall. Soon, mobile will no longer be “top dog” in tech chit chat. We are moving to the post mobile world. Don’t panic. Your smartphones will still work. And you will still need them. You just won’t need to stare at then all the time

Fred Wilson quotes the CEO of Alphabet saying

In the long run, I think we will evolve in computing from a mobile-first to an AI-first world

AI first means that your main web interphase will be through an AI powered bot. like Siiri or Alexa. My guess is that we will get all sorts of different personalities for bots just like we got lots of weird ringtones a while back.

So, get ready, get set, Go! And be nice to your bot!

BTW, this quote is relevant

“The next big thing will start out looking like a toy,” writes Chris Dixon. In other words, it’ll look like junk.

Indeed, Siiri and Alexa do seem a bit like toys. Let’s wait and see how they grow up.
