Amateur and professional predictions are exhaustive.
Now in this third technological age of the microchip, and whatever this age of the app is called, prediction is at a new level of energy. With our digital devices synthesizing massive bodies of personal data and creating schedules, calendars, and to-do lists, it only seems the next step for a kind of prediction to be used.
The displays project a user interface full of prospective events that you can manipulate via gesture recognition. The app uses an algorithm that records habits, calculates your activity, and recommends an action for you to take that will make you successful at the upcoming task.
Predictables won’t just manage your business calendar.
While there are advantages to predictive applications and devices, is there a risk that we will be less attentive to our day? Especially in the context of human relationships, an app that predicts and recommends an emotional gesture for you to make implies that you may need help with empathy. Where can Predictables be really useful? In what context will it strengthen our awareness instead of replace it?
