Voice AI and Robots

TechCrunch just wrote an article about Clinc, an Ann Arbor-based startup building voice AI.


What they're working on further emphasizes my growing sense that the future of low paying jobs, that used to go to high school kids and retirees, will be replaced by some combination of voice AI and robotics.

You can see it in Creator, the restaurant that has robots making burgers. And you can definitely draw a line between Uber and Lyft and how much money they're putting into autonomous driving. It'll take a little bit longer than expected but I'm sure we'll get there.

But if you're in high school right now, the best thing you could do for your future, is to learn how to code because the jobs of my past will not be the jobs of your future.
