The Ex-Machina Hollywood prophecies are not something we remember with fond feelings. At the rate at which Artificial Intelligence is growing, many have a foreboding of a time in the not-too-distant future when we will be dominated by a cold, emotionless fleet of AI-powered robots.
For many people, this has come to mean that AI is the opposite of “human.”
This article is an attempt to study this phenomenon and to answer the question; “Can artificial Intelligence enhance humanity rather than replace it?” In a bid to do this, let’s consider one of the most sacrosanct human traditions; gift-giving.
There are few things as beautiful as receiving or giving a thoughtful gift and there are few things quite as disrespectful as giving or receiving a thoughtless, “easy” gift.
To examine how Artificial Intelligence comes to play in this age-old tradition, I spoke with Luan Do, the co-founder of Gossby
, a leading company in the made-to-order space.
