Nearly a year after Yang’s death, a cloud of grief still hangs over his family. His father sleeps in his son’s bed. His mother prayed at the scene of the shooting every day for four weeks until her husband asked her to stop. Back in the year 2000, seven years before the first iPhone, the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, DARPA, commissioned the Stanford Research Institute to develop a kind of proto Siri, a virtual office assistance that might help military personnel to do their jobs. Twenty universities were brought into the project, furiously working on all the different technologies necessary to make a voice activated virtual assistant a reality.
