Kami the robot called tonight

Posted by on May 9, 2006

It was like a sci-fi show. The phone rang. I answered it. The voice on the other end said, “This is Kami! Is Eleanor there?” My first instinct was to go get Eleanor, but she sounded a little funny so I asked, “May I tell her what this is regarding.” “Kami” responded with “OK. Is the lady of the house available?” That wasn’t the right response. As a former system software engineer, I asked, “Is this a recording?” To which “Kami” responded, “Do I sound that bad? OK. Thank you for your time.”

The phone-bot was programmed with a sacrastic response to being found out as an automaton! It was a little bit creepy to be honest.

Look out… The robots will probably call you soon!
