I want to introduce to you: George.io. A voice assistant that helps you with very basic design tasks. In this particular model, you can design your own business card. The task is very unproblematic for a human designer, but comes with quite a few misunderstandings for a voice assistant. It’s the dawn of the voice interface era.

This technology is already being implemented in our cars, fridges and the things we wear. But the technology is still unable to fully understand our spoken language. George.io emphasizes the flaws in natural language understanding between human and machine and covers related issues like privacy and surveillance.
