Elon Musk is afraid of the AI revolution (he says, but who knows when the man’s just trolling us).
He claims the only solution he can think of is to continue integrating ourselves with the technological advancements, so we become part of the increasing computing power rather than be separate from the machine, and one day go … oooooops.
Cyborgian. Or something like something. You know my brain’s too small.
Actually all of that preamble of vicissitude has got nothing to do with anything whatsoever, besides the rather anti-climactic news that we’re building chatbots.
Right now, today, the only interaction point for visitors to endmyopia is signing up for the e-mail list. Which is rather old timey and doesn’t have much potential for helping YOU and your needs specifically. Much unlike chatbots which can be programmed to let you interact and potentially point you in directions most applicable to you. Even just basic things like, do you want the 7 day guide, or do you have questions, or other things, is myopia even your issue, etc, which we can find out just by having a bot and watching what people ask of it.
Now if you’re wondering, how do we possibly have the free time for this, then yes. We sure don’t. But I like to keep up with the rapid evolution of how we’re connecting and this one’s been on the to-explore list for almost two years now.
I finally hired an AI engireer guy to help us out with some very (very) basic exploring. Basically just a few exceedingly simple dialogs. Keep an eye on things, help me learn about how to create bots, steer us in the right general direction.
No intention of making a guru-bot.
Basically just evolve the e-mail contact point to possibly be a bit more useful via this alternate type of interaction. Just another thread of another project to slowly evolve into a potentially useful addition to the system in the long run.
I’m saying all this just in case you find these things interesting, or you (or ideas you have) maybe end up being another key piece to this particular little adventure.
Note that far flung musings of the bot doing all kinds of guiding and troubleshooting and replacing having to search and read and learn, definitely not current level of time or money allocated potential.
Just the ‘pain points’, working towards doing one little bit better than “here’s the e-mail guide”. (unless you yourself want to be on there creating all the relavant dialogs - which of course and as always, I’m open to far flung ideas that you yourself would be open to implement)
