Yes, it’s that time of year again when Google launches a new and totally mind-blowing piece of technology. This is CADIE: “the world’s first Cognitive Autoheuristic Distributed-Intelligence Entity“.
CADIE (pronounced “KA-dee”) is alive and well, and already has her own website. But what is she?
In short, CADIE is an “autopilot” for email, allowing users of Google Mail (aka GMail), to avoid some of the trouble occasioned by actually reading and replying to email. Set CADIE on the task, and she can and will reply to those onerous email messages you don’t want to reply to.
Oh, and one more thing:
Happy April Fool’s Day!
