The Perils of Voice Recognition Technology

This is a hilarious 3min Scottish video about the perils of voice recognition technology. After watching it I just couldn’t stop laughing so I had to re-post it.

While it is dangerously funny it does raise some good questions about the cultural biases of voice recognition in particular and technology in general.

Technology is rarely neutral. It is a mirror that reflects its maker and our Human, Oh So Human species. As such it is loaded with most of our best and worst stereotypical presumptions, personal inclinations and cultural biases.

The only question is:

After the technological singularity, will the Artificial Intelligence voice recognition technology finally speak Scottish?
