News In Our ‘Her’ Future

by Shelt Garner

I don’t think we’re prepared for how news gathering and consumption will be transformed when AI totally commoditized and personalized. When we reach the future of the movie “Her” it seems as though the Web as we know it will implode into a Singularity.

Our personal digital assistances will know us so well that they will answer questions before we ask them. And rather than having to go to The New York Times, the Web will just be a bunch of different PDAs talking to each other all the time.

I just don’t even know if the print Web will exist by 2030.

It definitely will be interesting to see how everything plays out. But the key thing we have to appreciate is a lot of the problems that the news industry has at the moment might be seen as rather quaint.

Everything will be disrupted to the point that the very questions we ask and the very problems we have to deal with will be very, very different.
