@Lyndon_Henry @Tomsg I have a blog submitted here (awaiting publication) that is based on an interview I had with the CEO of a service to alert parents when their kids may be cyberbullied. One of the things he emphasized is that key words don't work for all situations because 1) some of the communication is done via image or video and 2) some key words or even phrases can signal danger in some contexts but not in all, which is why the AI has to learn the patterns of the users' online exchanges.

 Most search is based on key words. How does standard search deal with the new types and forms of the data? I would think that keywords are not the best way in many situation.



 

Yes, this could present interesting new challenges for the conventional PC + Internet + Google search methodology. "Please identify this fragrance ..."

I disagree somewhat. Most search is based on key words. How does standard search deal with the new types and forms of the data? I would think that keywords are not the best way in many situation.

I don't see IoT/AI as big game changers for search... search has been finding every nook and cranny it can to direct (and re-direct) consumers and businesses wherever it can -- the "recommended for you" listings being the most obvious.

But it's also connected to the ads being served up in free webmail and the major social media, which are trying to fulfiull contractual obligations to serve up lots of garbage ads ("I already bought that!") to fulfill their volume-driven contracts with online retailers. Or to grab a commission on a transaction, which adds up or hundreds of thousands (or millions) of purchases.

I agree, and it will be a linchpin for Amazons' future tech leadership iniatives for some time.  I think the key part about this that keeps Google / Bing ahead in search is that there is not a clear B2B benefit.  But consumer tech trends have traditionally lead B2B whe it comes to shifts like this.

Alexa seems to me a far more sensible and functional application of IoT than IoT-connected refrigerators, toasters, and toilets.

Incidentally, Alexa actually has a significant role in the Mr. Robot TV series ... as a character!
