The future
I think this is another example of the next arms race in the startup world. Companies will buy up AI developers to further their own internal projects and create new chatbots and services through automation that just weren't possible a few years ago.

We're still a long way off having full digital assistants like in the movie Her, but I think that's where a lot of companies, specifically Microsoft, Google and Apple, want to take us.

Cortana, Siri and Google Now are just the tip of the iceberg.
