Artificial intelligence


Sir, – Driving home the other day, I wanted to stop at the Carrickmines shopping centre. Ten minutes of asking Siri for directions resulted in two phone calls to random contacts, and the maps app planning a route to a shop in Leopardstown. Computers may be able to beat chess grandmasters, but the algorithm has yet to be developed that can defeat a Dublin accent.

The rise of the robots might be a century or two away yet. – Yours, etc,
