The Value of Personal Interactions
It's possible that AI could make human interactions more valuable, but it depends on how it's used. For example, AI-powered customer service chatbots can handle routine inquiries and free up human representatives to handle more complex issues. This could lead to more efficient and satisfying interactions for customers.
AI can also be used to personalize interactions, such as recommending products or services based on a customer's previous interactions or browsing history. This can lead to more relevant and valuable interactions.
AI can also be used to improve communication in areas such as education and healthcare. For example, AI tutors can provide personalized feedback and instruction to students, while AI-powered virtual assistants can help doctors and nurses with tasks such as scheduling and record-keeping.
However, if AI is used to replace human interactions entirely, it could lead to a loss of emotional connection and empathy. Additionally, if AI is not designed to be transparent and accountable, it could lead to mistrust and dissatisfaction.
Overall, AI has the potential to make human interactions more valuable, but it's important to use it in a way that complements and enhances human capabilities, rather than replacing them.

Text to neighbor:
Hi, Fred, this is Richard, next door. I’ve have a confession to make. I’ve been riddled with guilt for a few months and have been trying to get up the courage to tell you face-to-face. At least I’m telling you in this text and I can’t live with myself a minute longer without you knowing about this. The truth is that when you’re not around I’ve been sharing your wife, day and night. In fact, probably much more than you. I haven’t been getting it at home recently and I know that that’s no excuse. The temptation was just too great. I can’t live with the guilt and hope you’ll accept my sincere apology and forgive me. Please suggest a fee for usage and I’ll pay you. Regards, Richard
Fred, feeling so angered and betrayed, grabbed his gun and shot Richard, killing him. He went back home and poured himself a stiff drink and sat down on the sofa. Fred then looked at his phone and discovered a second text message from Richard.
Second text message:
Hi, Fred. Richard here again. Sorry about the typo on my last text. I expect you figured it out and noticed that the damned Auto-Correct had changed “wi-fi” to “wife.” Technology, huh? It’ll be the death of us all. Regards, Rich
The previous posts on business trends have gathered a little more interest, so in doing more research I found the following treasure trove on tech trends at Deloitte University Press. Deloitte's articles through and complete with graphs to supplement the projections. The growth forecasts coincide with other news on technology predictions and when you read over the article you'll see how well laid out this presentation is. My hat is off to Deloitte, Bill Briggs, Mariahna Moore and the cast of thousands that compiled this report.
The base concept is Globalization and thinking in terms of a global resources, supply chain management and emerging markets that are evolving with the technology. Right now we are at a tipping point with the growth of Asian and India's markets set to explode. Delivering services to these economies and the challenges that will ensue, can't even fathom the numbers the rewards will bring into the fold. We are just beyond the base of the curve where it's slope is about to go vertical. Artificial intelligence, robotics, wearables, battery tech, culture and class separation. This is by far the best report for all entrepreneurs to read or make a study of. A great series from Deloitte.
