I believe what he is getting at is that one day we will all (if we choose) have our own personal AI assistant.. an artificially intelligent microsoft paperclip.. for your day to day life.. Could be really handy, could be really annoying and imposing. Will probably be both.
Dag believes we will all have our own virtual assistant one day. He (or she) will do everything for you – book your flight, make your hotel reservation, remind you to pick up your child from soccer, and order your next perfectly fitting jeans. There are many pieces to this puzzle for it to work. The first one is voice recognition – or Siri. The second piece is extremely deep domain expertise. For example, in order to find great jeans you have to know everything about jeans. In order to book a flight, you need many inputs and access to various websites or travel agents to do the booking.
Dag’s demeanor is incredibly thoughtful. He does not jump to conclusions quickly, but will ask many questions (in our case, about ZipFit.me). He also shared deeper views on the future and what will happen in our lifetime. A few highlights include:
1) A virtual assistant who does everything for you. Books your flight, buys your clothes, plans your life to whatever extent you want.
2) 3D printers. And no – not the ones that exist right now where you need inputs. My simple mathematical brain thinks you need inputs to get output – at least on the atomic level. He takes that up to another level. He sees 3D printers working where energy is the input. That means, if you have a favorite lamb dish made by, let’s say Anthony Bourdain, then you could just “print” out that dish at home on your printer. It comes out hot, medium rare just as you like it, with a side of mashed potatoes made by Masaharu Morimoto.
3) Teleportation. Yep – it’s in the works so no need for airlines. I don’t want to be the first one to test it -but our CTO, Seth, volunteered.
4) Aging Cessation. If we truly crack the code for what causes aging and can stop it – then you live for as long as you want to.
