Sometimes it just falls into your lap….
As some will know, I’m fascinated by artificial intelligence (AI), especially how it relates to literacy and our notion of being literate.
So, when I read about Pi from Post Intelligence I was intrigued. Pi is an “intelligent social media assistant”. Pi will recommend tweets for you, review your tweets for effectiveness, select the best time for you to tweet, and (probably soon) tweet for you.
But here’s the comment from Post Intelligence founder Bindu Reddy, explaining why we need Pi, that leaped out at me:
“Humans find it very difficult to be good at social media.”
I know Twitter is already bot infested but this takes it to a new level. Give up, let the AIs do all that pesky reading, writing, and posting.
The idea that social media and humans aren’t a good fit both delights and appalls me.
