What if we could form meaningful relationships with AI? IBM designer Adam Cutler argues that we’re already doing this — we name our cars and mourn our iPhones when they break — but imagine if we could develop a deeper emotional bond with our machines. By interpreting intent through language and pairing it with tone and semantic analysis in real time, Cutler shares a vision of the future where AI can predict what you want based only on the smallest, most human of hints.
