Abstract

Digital assistants such as Alexa and Siri and Google Assistant can be quite helpful, but their actual allegiance is to Amazon and Apple and Google, not to the ordinary people who use them. By introducing AI-based digital agents -- “Personal AIs” -- that truly represent and advocate for us as individuals, rather than corporate or government institutions, we can make the Web a more trustworthy and accountable place.
