A computer programmer in China caused quite a stir on social media recently after posting that he created a custom chatbot to answer his girlfriend’s texts 24/7, because he was too busy to do it himself.

"Mmmmm," "yes dear," and "whatever you think." That pretty much covers the gamut.


Hope he turns it off if he has to pick her up at the airport.

Dude, you're doing it wrong. You're not supposed to tell anyone!

Still, get that Nobel ready.

Recent exchange:
1: Accident on ___. I should be at the airport 3:08
2: Stuck on the ground waiting for a gate. No rush
1: Multiple wreckers. ETA 3:18. Would this be a good time to start singing a round?
2: ?
1: Row row row your boat gently down the stream...
1: Traffic is stopped outside __
2: Changed baggage claim to Terminal 1
1: Let me know which door
2: Circling
2: Door 1F
1: See the SWAT team? Go to 1E

I'd like to see a chat bot that can exude that much love

Yeah, brilliant up until the idiot TOLD her he was doing it....

My advice would be to let Alexa visit with both the chatbot and the girlfriend. Also leave the room quickly to avoid brain damage.
