The Future Face of Articifical Intelligence is Media

The team behind Siri debuts its next-gen AI “Viv” at Disrupt NY 2016:

Viv is the new voice driven systems built by separate teams who are programming the programs of the new media. Media defined as communications, systems and data totally merged. And of course its intelligent.

We better be clear on what we mean by media because the old definitions are way out of date. THis is the standard definition by the Business Directory: Communication channels through which news, entertainment, education, data, or promotional messages are disseminated. Media includes every broadcasting and narrowcasting medium such as newspapers, magazines, TV, radio, billboards, direct mail, telephone, fax, and internet. Media is the plural of medium and can take a plural or singular verb, depending on the sense intended.
2.Data storage material divided into three broad categories according to the recording method: (1) Magnetic, such as diskettes, disks, tapes, (2) Optical, such as microfiche, and (3) Magneto-Optical, such as CDs and DVDs.

Perhaps it is all merging into AI. And perhaps it is no accident that the force behind the latest AI media is the the search giant Google.
