We know that AI will be assisting us at work in a more influential way over time and will help us reach organizational goals. What do you think of AI influencing your every day life beyond super charging searches, playing your favorite music and controlling individual devices. AI will help us look better, act better and participate better in social interactions. As we are successful at work with AI, we will trust it more in our personal lives.
AI will Help Us Look Better:
Well most of us won't leverage robotic plastic surgery or genetic supercharging for better looks, we might ask AI to help us with our looks. AI could know our tastes, looks and body types and suggest a target outfit and even buy the components for us. I think most of us still will want to shop for price and quality. Today you can try on make up with an AI assisted mirror. Imagine a full length mirror displaying your final outfit on you before a Saturday Night outing? I always need help at Halloween, so that will be my test run :)
AI will Help Us Hobby Better:
Have you ever had the aspiration to dive into a hobby, but were timid? Have you ever been knee deep in a hobby and run into a perplexing situation. Wouldn't an AI assist come in handy for those situations. My gear head friends who still tinker with cars are always running into situations that require help. In fact racers are always collecting data and leveraging technology to analyze performance. In my case I like to try new forms of art expression and spend hours looking at videos or going to classes. Imagine AI searching for an answer for your situation and suggesting approaches.
AI will Help US Socialize Better:
Have you ever felt uncomfortable in a social situation? Wouldn't you like to contribute to a conversation in a meaningful and polite way? Wouldn't you like to have the right thing to say in the right situation without embarrassing yourself or others? Even if we are inviting guests over for a meal, wouldn't some suggestions come in handy? I think we all find ourselves in want of assistance in social situations. If you desire to interact with others, assistance could really be helpful for most of us. This might come in form of a voice in a ear piece or a image in our glasses / eye piece.
While it might seem intrusive or silly to some of us, others of us will embrace designer AI. For rugged individuals that don't want help, designer AI is probably not your thing. However, for those of us that are always looking to get better or look better, designer AI will be appealing. For me designer AI would help with confidence in new situations that I tend to want to put myself in from time to time. How about you?
