According to the media world-dominating computers like Skynet (Terminator) are imminent. This is in gross contrast to popular use cases: For instance, almost no one seems to ask their Alexa for more than the weather or bad jokes. And four of the five most successful Alexa Skills produce just fart noises. And even those who see technological progress as a chance often have a completely wrong expectation of chatbots and voice assistants. It is not uncommon to assume that the AI will automatically take care of everything and success will happen all by itself. Sascha explains why this often fails. And he shows how to design convincing Conversational Experiences beyond fart skills using Digital Twin thinking.
