We’ve all had the experience where we shop for something online (like patio furniture) and then we’re hit with a barrage of ads. I don’t think this kind of advertising is that effective. Nine times out of ten, I’ve already made the purchase before the ads arrive.
I bought an elliptical a few weeks ago. I’ve seen thousands of ads for the them since and then today it changed.
Today, every website I’ve visited has been covered with florist ads, specific to funerals. I could not help but notice this…but why? I bought flowers for a funeral about six months ago. Why now? I don’t know anyone who died…
That’s when it hit me. What if AI gets to a point where no one has died but it knows someone is going to. Ads are delivered a few days in advance…
Can you imagine this? I can!
I will continue to wrack my brain to recall what I might have typed into my computer to make google think I needed a funeral arrangement. Because you’ve got admit it’s spooky.
Mercury conjunct Pluto today. Hmm.
