Google to Control Our Schedules, Command us to Perform Tasks Next?
Speaking about one possible future of Google integration, company fellow Amit Singhal outlined a frankly terrifying vision—where Google scans our to-do lists, automatically searches for outstanding tasks and tells us when and how to complete them…
Here’s Singhal’s amazing description of a future in which Google takes over many of our high-level cognitive brain functions:
“So my calendar knows when I have free time, my [GPS-enabled] phone knows where I am, my to do list has a list of things I need to accomplish and time is expensive … On top of that Google local knows the map of this place and it knows where all the sports shops are – so why can’t this thing tell me ‘you have 45 minutes free in your agenda, there’s a sports shop 300 metres away go and buy a cricket bat”
Put simply, HUMAN WILL COMPLY, even if you don’t want a cricket bat. Scary, huh?
