1/ This is a thread about why Google’s Slices are potentially "really, really exciting."
2/ I work on a short-term R&D team, so I can rarely share what I work on. Unless, of course, something ships and then I can share the public announcements, which happened this week at Google's big annual I/O event!
3/ You probably missed it. There was a big phone call demo, and you didn’t notice the announcement of Slices at #io18. The seemingly small thing could be a big deal, changing a building block of tech. Excited to finally mention them, and why I think they could change computing.

The combination of App Bundle and Dynamic Delivery announced at #io18 represents a momunental change similar to what Flash provided
when utilities/games changed from a downloadable/shareware to a web-based 'instant acquisition/gratification' approach
Developers who can unlearn old practices/tooling and think from the ground up on how their products can be rebuilt in a modular fashion will succeed the most in the future.
The entire user journey from acquisition via an 'advertisement' should be thought of as a series of playable experiences which can progressively lead users deeper and deeper into the content

I am genuinely bothered and disturbed at how morally wrong it is for the Google Assistant voice to act like a human and deceive other humans on the other line of a phone call, using upspeek and other quirks of language. "Hi um, do you have anything available on uh May 3?" #io18
(thread cont.) If Google created a way for a machine to sound so much like a human that now we can't tell what is real and what is fake, we need to have a talk about ethics and when it's right for a human to know when they are speaking to a robot. #io18
In this age of disinformation, where people don't know what's fake news... how do you know what to believe if you can't even trust your ears with now Google Assistant calling businesses and posing as a human? That means any dialogue can be spoofed by a machine and you can't tell.
