I‚Äôm just going to come out and say it, the primary issue that we have with AI is that we suspect it might be smarter than us.¬†Might be.
However, we should chill, as a solution is at hand, and it stems from the world of toxic relationships. We‚Äôre not going to improve ourselves, we‚Äôre just going to make the other party as stupid as we are.
That‚Äôs the aim of Landbot, a one-year-old Spanish tech startup, who have decided that laziness is the way forward: it‚Äôs making a chatbot-builder for businesses that does the bare minimum, and nothing more.
‚ÄúWe started our chatbot journey using Artificial Intelligence technology but found out that there was a huge gap between user expectations and reality,‚ÄĚ co-founder Jiaqi Pan¬†tells¬†TechCrunch. ‚ÄúNo matter how well trained our chatbots were, users ended up in 20 different ways of saying ‚ÄėTALK WITH A HUMAN‚Äô.‚ÄĚ
Ostensibly, they‚Äôre looking to be smart, by being stupid.
I mean, it could work, or maybe you guys can just, you know‚Ä¶try harder?
