A long way to Personal Assistants
As I see the future of personal assistants — that is the thing which would tell you what exactly to do to improve your life quality. Not just reminding about events or activities you’ve added to planner as all modern “assistants” do. But generating new activities and appointments for you. Without even you telling it what to do.
You’re gaining weight? It’ll schedule an appointment with nutritionist, find nearest gym, suggest morning run.
You’re in the bad mood? It’ll play a nice music to you.
You’re looking for new career opportunities? Assistant would find appropriate courses to pump up your skills and advice a meeting with boss.
So, that thing going to know you better that you do. Deux ex Machina as it is. How far modern assistants from this? Pretty far as up to me.
