    Everyone is talking about the next big thing and AI this AI, or is it Mixreality or is it ..... I remember when the smartphones were the next big thing in a world where smartphones already existed. Along with other things like the Tablet PC, the UMPCs, ...

    This are what I call Julio Vern exercises. They can never be wrong as it will happen.

    But we just don't know, how, when and who will crack it. Everyone is talking about Google and Microsoft they seam to make the most noise of this. But history has shown who cracks it can be any company, even a company that we don't know the name of yet.

    All Google examples around AI looked quite scripted, quite command like. Yes, now we know how to apply AI to context sets, yet they are very narrow. This gives limited conversational experiences.

    The thing is no one knows.

    Maybe Google done it with this second gen device to the point it feels normal, responsive so on and so forth. But without using it but in Android Phones, all my experiences have been quite contrived and sometimes unresponsive. The same thing with Cortana yet a bit worst. Siri is not much worst either if we like to split airs.

    PS: I just wish I would not need to shout at my XBOX One. Not wait to seconds for it to react to a simple command such as "Volume up". Or repeat to Google on my Android several times query. Point being, its cool, t simply put my practice with it revealed that its not a good experience. It like smartphones were before iPhone or how Tablets were before the iPad. Who will crack the AI experience, ... don't know.
