💬 “Middleware is going to be the greatest growth area for technology in the next few years. It is where AI is going to deliver its greatest benefits because it will be the layer that allows us to stitch together all of the disparate technologies that we interact with and allow us to put them together in a way that will make our lives easier, better, simpler and more fun.”

🎧 In this episode, Max talks about the opportunities for efficiency and productivity in our lives and our work by exploring middleware – middleware is software that acts as a bridge between an operating system or database and applications. He says that this is the layer that allows us to stitch together all of the disparate technologies that we interact with and allow us to put them together in a way that will make our lives easier, better, simpler, more fun. We spoke about how to adapt and integrate new technologies into our lives and the importance of outsourcing everyday tasks to machines so that we can effectively change with the times. Max also spoke about how the ways we are interacting with technologies is changing including how we may move beyond the keyboard into further into voice input.
