AI assistants now surround us. You can summon them from your phone, from devices in your home, and from your inbox. But they are not all created equal. Some enable and coordinate other services. Others get a single job done exceptionally well, whether that’s scheduling meetings or writing data-driven stories.

It’s inevitable that these different types of AI will have to be able to interact seamlessly with each other, at times leaving humans entirely out of the loop. How these different types of AI Assistants interact with one another—and how we interact with them—will shape the nature of work and leisure for decades to come.
