Not in the least. I considered updates, company reputation, the phone itself, what hardware was in it. I;m not a doctor, so I don't care about matching symptoms to anyone's but my own, and my Google-fu is pretty strong, so I don't care about an app that doesn't really look up what I want looked up. (And at 76. I don't think I'll live to see a phone that tells me to look it up myself because it doesn't feel like it at the moment.)However you want to label it, does that type of work matter to you when you consider the Pixel phone at all?
What thread should I be in.
Are they not talking about software improvements to the phone threw software.
Could software and the new people building the phone together not build a better phone.
Exactly where should I be ?
That's not AI, that's pattern matching. AI is the computer telling you that it doesn't feel like working today, do it yourself. We're a few centuries from that.
As an example, the DeepMind program from Google known as AlphaGo, a computer was able to defeat a world champion Go player.
