Maybe it does make sense
That last example chat that goes
"Hi, how are you?"
That's pretty cool, in a cyborg sort of way, wouldn't you agree? A machine isn't going have any emotional leanings, it can't have a bad day, nor a good day. I might even adopt that myself for conversations with colleagues. Of course, the inevitable flow of conversation with the machine is going to be bad for somebody:
"Errr, that's good, yeah...that's OK...what can I do for you?"
"I need your clothes, your boots, and your motorcycle"
