This reminds me of ‘Eddie the Shipboard Computer’ with a ‘Genuine People Personality’ from Hitchhikers Guide. Each one gets more annoying than the previous one 🙂 Interestingly enough … if you assume (rightly/wrongly) that one day you will have robots around your house … what personality do you want them to have? (or not!) If they are connected devices, and you ask one for a coffee, imagine how it makes a decision and then tries to advertise coffee at the Starbucks around the corner from you.
