Innovation drives technology forward, so what do you do when one of the industry's biggest advancements, the website, is failing us? Simple, you kill it. AI (think: Alexa, Apple Business Chat and chatbots) - will kill the website, and revolutionise the digital economy to capture nearly 90 percent of industry sales in the future.
Alex Spinelli, CEO for LivePerson, talks about where our future is going and the potential death of the everyday website.
Currently, there are 1.7 Billion websites. The first was created in 1991 and the first billion was reached in 2014 before a slight decline.
Over the past few years we have moved from Google being the gateway to the internet, to social leading the way and now we are in the full swing of mobile being the centre of attention. A scary look into the future will see everybody on devices rather than looking at what's around them.
Is this the future?
It's a very scary thought that people spend more time on a device then talking to each other or actually looking at what's going on around them, this includes paying attention to oncoming traffic when attempting to cross the road.
Tel Aviv and a few other cities around the world have started to install ‘Zombie’ Traffic lights in the ground to stop users on mobile phones from walking into the road, as silly as it sounds it happens more than you would ever think it could.
