The evidence is strong for this one. Talking to a "bot" is addicting. I've watched a grown man talking to his little female voiced pal like a real person, but trying to make "her" look stupid. So, who is the stupid one here?

Well I know I have had some interesting conversations with my dice at times. Usually they were one sided and it was not my side that won.

Years ago I recall the roll out of "Siri" and watched people see how far they could push a conversation or line of questions before they were disconnected.

Just another novel toy to play with until the next device is released.

Lol. Well, I would have also tried to find ways to make the robot trip or get stumped, regardless of the gender they pick for the voice.
