You’ve probably heard of ‘B2B’, an acronym for ‘business-to-business’ transactions. Now some are speaking of ‘M2M’ – ‘machine-to-machine’, where machines communicate with machines. (Although how different this is to API’s, I’m not sure…)

Regardless, how long will it be before machines assign work to people? Let’s call it ‘M2P’ – machine-to-person. So maybe in the near future, an email will arrive in your inbox, making you an offer to do work that you won’t want to refuse, and you won’t know if it came from a person, or from an A.I.?
