I recently came across a product that claims to make email easier with AI automation. Among other things, it can easily draft replies.

There are many reasons why I highly recommend not to use such products, the number one being because using such a product supports AI development.

But there is an extremely important reason not to use AI assistants: it makes you more mechanical and more machine-like. It places a machine-barrier between you and the world, and will evolve to the point where it will remove your personality from your emails and replies.

Even if the reply is close to what you wanted, the fact that your brain is taking almost no time in drafting it yourself means it removes the essence of human communication, which overall makes the world more machine like.

Yes, AI assistants might help you remove some spam and organize your life. But then, what is a life if you are living more and more like a machine every day?
