Today, an AI Application Can Take Action on Your Behalf: Good or Bad?

A neat idea, is if you give permission to a user for a specific action, an AI voice/text recognition programs could:

  • If your tagged ‘best friend’ texts you, let’s go out tonight, and your work calendar setup for parameters 8 AM to 7 PM, and both you and your ‘best friend’ are tagged as liking a restaurant, or have a frequent geography tag to a specific location, given permission to a calendar, AI may automatically call ahead a restaurant, and book a reservation, or email the resturant with the reservation.  Given permission, the AI, would also provide a preferred credit card to hold the reservation.
  • If you give the voice/text AI recognition program a spending limit, and you have a profile of a person on file, it’s their birthday, the AI program can automatically purchase something for the person, e.g. an e-card from a ‘preferred store’, or ‘reading’ the person’s profile, may dynamically send a gift using their preferences, using your preferred credit card on file, and get it to the person on time.
  • Based on your current Geo-tagged location, AI can suggest you attend a bar/restaurant based on you’re bosses, or on your pursued romantic interlude checkins; to increases your odds of promotion or romantic interlude, or both.

The ideas are endless what AI can do, the technology is out there, the rules, APIs, and applications are to be built on top of the AI APIs.  We live in an incredible, yet scary time. It’s important to set parameters, but one rule, one order of precedence, one parameter can make or break careers, relationships, and so on.  Tread carefully.  We are only human.
