I kind of want to blame Iron Man for this rush to household AI. But the reality is, wouldn't it be cool to have something like Jarvis? That's not that strange a desire. But everything about how these devices operate requires a level of trust in various institutions that it's frankly unwise to have, right now. Do you trust the government not to spy on you? Do you trust private companies with data that tracks every aspect of your daily life? Do you trust your finances (in the form of payment cards) to hardware and voice software that no one is allowed to vet?
Our institutions aren't ready for this technology, even if the technology is ready for us.
