You know how we speak in stilted accents & robotic voices to get voice AIs to understand us? Imagine performing facial emotions for robots so you don't get strip searched at the airport or arrested on the street. That's what we have to look forward to.

Rather than smart speakers learning *us*, we're having to learn "smart speaker"— Chris Anderson (@chr1sa) March 2, 2019

Speaking of AIs:
