AI bots are cute, but can they pass the Turing Test?

These chipper bots are fun, but if you’re using them daily, then you might be missing out on some important opportunities.

Unexpected Consequence 1: AI assistants may save you time, but they waste mine

Unexpected Consequence 2: You miss a golden opportunity to connect

Unexpected Consequence 3: You’re making me talk to a box, and it’s unpleasant.

Unexpected Consequence 4: Implied confidentiality breach

And most importantly, I’ve never given you a consent for any of this. But it’s too late, because you’ve violated the inherit trust of private communication.

Bottom Line: What message are you sending?
