Don't expect Siri to understand the complexities of human emotion (or to cuss at you for hilarity's sake). Robotic AI limitations are still in place.
Poor @CeciMula found this out the hard way when expressing a sentiment that a human being would understand as rhetorical. Siri understood it as 'do that function'.
I JUST ASKED SIRI IF A CERTAIN BOY WOULD EVER TEXT ME AND SHE SENT A TEXT SAYING WILL YOU EVER TEXT ME TO HIM. My funeral will be held at 8pm this Thursday.— Ceci ✮ (@CeciMula) January 17, 2018
Look at that - a half million likes. This feels like a moment that in the future, when we're actually dating robots, they'll look back and go, "heh".
In retrospect, no I wouldn't have tweeted this if I knew it would eventually show up on his timeline. But honestly that's on you for leaving me on read 🙃— Ceci ✮ (@CeciMula) January 18, 2018
Yeah I accidentally hit send trying to exit. Will no longer ask Siri for relationship advice 🙃— Ceci ✮ (@CeciMula) January 18, 2018
The rest of the internet nodded sagely, and those out of the dating pool cringed a familiar cringe.
Our dating lives are already complicated enough. But all the likes in the world (or a half million, anyway) won't change somebody's heart, sadly.
Update!! Received a text simply saying: "haha" funerals been pushed up! BYOB!— Ceci ✮ (@CeciMula) January 18, 2018
Mind your robot assistants, folks.
