It's been just over a year since Microsoft's Tay shuffled off this digital coil in a swirl of racist, sexist and homophobic vitriol. One of the things I liked about Microsoft's approach was to not scrap the idea of an AI-powered chatbot but to take the experience of Tay and learn from it. So, a little over a year after Tay vanished, we welcome Zo. But like all younger siblings, she may have picked up a few bad habits from her older sister.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
