X.AI The Future of Scheduling

X.AI's artificial intelligence Amy is like something from the movie HER. It's going to be one of the next big things as they call it. With $12 million dollars in funding and the recipient of some great press already.

It's in Beta form right now and only select users have access to it at the moment as the artificial intelligence is learning patterns and recognizing how best to respond and schedule appointments for it's users.

The software will end up replacing Apples SIRI sooner rather than later. That is my prediction.

 

P.S. if you sign up for Amy from X.AI here is what you receive from Dennis Mortensen

 

"I really appreciate you signing up – and I am thrilled about the incredible demand we’ve seen for our artificial intelligence meeting scheduling solution!

We’re adding busy people as fast as we can every week so hang tight. We’ll send Amy to rescue you from meeting scheduling nightmares soon enough. While you wait, you can check your spot in the x.ai waitlist any time here.

Cheers,
Dennis and the x.ai team :-)

PS. You can read more about how Amy works here - and learn why CBS News said, "Amy feels like the future.""


Why the Chipotle Bash Is Wrong

There is an awfully supiscious and INCORRECT bashing going on right now. This is aimed at popular fast casual burrito chain Chipotle where a website called Chubbychipotle.com launching an incorrect and unverified claims that if you eat Chipotle Burritos alone you will get FAT.

Folks at Consumer Freedom really need to fact check or admit that they are being paid off by McDonalds and Subway executives because they are getting slaughtered (no pun intended) by Chipotles better food, better ingredients, same price model.

First Here is the text from the ad (Graphic not posted due to fears of copyright infringement. We want this post to live on)

"Chipotle"

Healthy  Eat two "all natural" chipotle burritos a week and you could gain 40 pounds in a year.

The negative ad states that :"Chipotle makes high-calorie burrtios and tacos but spends most of its marketing dollars stressing how "sustainable" it is, or how its fods are antibiotic-free (until it sells meat that isn't). All these claims sound good, but experts say they don't make their food healther. Experts do agree that eating 1,300-1,500 calorie burriots will probably make you fat."

Now anybody who has read the Fat Loss Bands Books would know that it's not what you eat but rather the calories in and calories out principle. If you were to eat Oatmeal for breakfast and a half pound of Grilled Chicken and Steamed Broccoli for Lunch and dinner each day then you could end up looking like the guy in the photo. Reason is it's not all about what you eat but how much exercise and proper dieting that goes into the mix.

That advertisement is absolute non-sense and I will gladly educate Chipotle haters free of charge.

 


Grill 23 in Boston. Where Mr. Wonderful watches Patriots games on Sundays. As said in the last season of The ABC hit television show "The Shark Tank" Mr. Wonderful dissed a company called Snagastool.

The issues with this idea are numerous. One issue that did not come up during the segment was that if it did actually work that Open Table who already has access to all of these restaurants and bars that currently reserves tables and handles the seating at the majority of the country's restaurants could squash Snag a stool like a bug.

VPS Pricing Down Below $4.00 a Month?

Similar to how we scoff at the idea of paying hundreds of dollars a month for hosting or registering domain names for hundreds of dollars. It wasn't that long ago when that was a reality but today we utilize $8.00 a month hosting packages from the likes of Godaddy, Host Gator, and Blue Host.

Just announced on Tech Crunch today is Scalleway is offer its own ARM-based servers driving down the price offering a BareMetal solid state drive server with 2 gigabytes of RAM and 50 gigs of storage for....get this only $3.40 a month.

Will be interesting to see how hosting prices out over the next ten years.
