As society careens toward a fully automated future, we need to avoid embracing technology for technology’s sake. The ultimate goal should be thoughtful technology that improves customer experience — solutions geared toward helping human beings rather than being “just another app.”
Technology has become a part of every aspect of our lives, even in the places we least expect. The grocery store has a mobile app. The local bank has a chatbot. Strollers in the mall have touchscreens. The checkout counter is DIY. The parking lot has a security robot.
Are any of these things bad? No. But how many of them are necessary? In the process of making something more accessible, does the experience or usability suffer? And how many of these things improve the user experience of what they replaced?
Any technological development must be worth the time, effort, and money put into it. It must also pay dividends in terms of how helpful it is.
