Closing notes
Writing this while I wait for my eldest daughter to finish her trampolining lessons, in a cafe, in the week when the UK went back to level A of the pandemic - no masks etc. I’m reminded that a) human to human interaction is still as important as ever and people seem a lot more communal compared to last week and b) bots won’t replace every job out there - I’m yet to think of a trampolining instructor who can be replaced by a bot. However, in a year when we hear that companies are struggling to hire the right amount of people, it’s probably about time that they start thinking about automating some of the low-value high-volume conversations that happen with conversational AI and give knowledge workers more time to be more productive. I think 2022 will be massive for the conversational AI industry.
I’m hoping that this newsletter keeps building and improving with every issue. Let me know your thoughts, feedback and ideas of what you want to see by DM on LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram or even TikTok (not that I have worked that one out yet!).
