Good article and good segue into the wider problem of how AI and NLP fit into our lives.

The problem is, as a guy in Tech, this is one of the first things I’d want to stop other guys saying. Other guys will say it, of course. They’re dicks. Imagine adolescent and pubescent lads going.

“show me tits”


“I love boobies”

There are two ways this can go.

  1. It actually shows them it on Chromecast. So it’s porn on demand (I sure hope their parents walk in half way through that danger wank). Not ideal, unless quit parent alert adds to the cringe comedy.
  2. It responds with an escalating response that the boys will call up through NLP just to hear.

This whole frat position leaves Google with a dork response, or to just ignore the request. Ignoring is probably the best option tbh, but I can see how it would be considered as safe to push that along the dorky-crap response route.
