From voice activated accounting to a self-guided, autonomous financial life, it all sounds very positive. However, we also need to realise, what are we giving away in return for all the convenience.
So, imagine a self-driving, autonomous, financial life – a money-enabled life – with your personal financial advisor accessible wherever and whenever you want through your screen-based (mobiles, tablets) and voice enabled (like Echo or Google Home) technology. As well as doing the basics – the bank balances, checks on credit, advice on when to pay off debts – it could actively manage your finances. It could help you budget for the monthly bills – everything from food to insurance – and pay off the bills as they arrive in the most effective manner.
