Opinions 


Want to keep things simple? Your WADR correspondent has opined in the past about our increasing dependence on technology as well as the rise of robots and artificial intelligence (AI). Until recently, your correspondent had little practical experience of the more advanced technologies. I have a laptop and a mobile phone but use their basic functions for answering emails, writing this column and making phone calls. Then I received a gift of an Amazon Echo Dot, a small glowing circular speaker that reacts to voice commands through Alexa, its inbuilt AI “virtual assistant”.
