Apple Falling Behind on AI

We’ve just had a big tech season. Between Facebook’s F8 conference, Google’s I/O Conference and Apple’s most recent Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) we’ve seen the big plans that these tech companies plan on focusing on over this next year.

Technical Debt is an Opportunity for Improvement

People love to talk about technical debt.  They love to tell each other to “work smarter, not harder” and not to double your work by speeding up development today knowing you’ll have to change it later.  The thing is that people call this debt, but it isn’t.  You have made the best decision that you could at the time.  In development, you have to make compromises along the way.  When you decide to do a feature in a particular way, and you’re going to have to change it later, yes it is more work.  But, it’s also done for now.  The feature is out the door right now.  Instead of considering it debt, consider it an opportunity for improvement in the software.

AI: Chatbots

​With technology ever improving and ever changing, the rise of artificial intelligence (AI) is growing by leaps and bounds.  With this comes in a form of AI –the chatbot.  Chatbots are the virtual assistant that you can “chat” with to help get your tasks accomplished.   With technology like this, soon the "chat for help" icons on every website will have you chatting with an AI chatbot instead of a person.  Scary? Maybe –maybe not.
