They are here to help.
At 7 a.m. this morning, a robot told me the weather.
It wasn’t audible, although my phone chimed. It was The Weather Channel bot on the messaging app Kik. A message popped up, and then I asked for the forecast. I asked about the weather in Cupertino, and the robot balked. (You can only ask about local weather conditions.) So much for The Terminator taking over.
