You make an omelet with his recipe. While you are picking out your clothes, he reads today’s weather forecast to let you know it’s chilly outside. On your way to work, he becomes a traffic guide, saying, “Eastbound traffic on Highway is moving well, with all lanes open”. He never gets tired of you and always shows kindness whenever you need him.

Through the film, Jonze shows how an artificial intelligence program can pervade on many aspects of one’s life. Theodore, who writes a letter for a person as a job, purchases an operating system and calls her “Samantha”. By actually communicating and interacting deeply with her, Theodore gradually falls in love so that he feels great loss when she is absent later in the movie. In this film, Samantha is “not just operating system but it is a consciousness.” Although the movie takes place in a premised futuristic setting, it seems not too distant from our current lifestyle, in which a smartphone reads your e-mail and plays music for you just like Theodore’s day in the movie.

Facebook, the most worldwide social network service, also recently unveiled its new voice recognition service “M”. David Marcus, the vice president of messaging products at Facebook, introduces this new system as “the most human-like artificial intelligence program that had been harshly disciplined” and emphasizes it’s capacity to make a judgment on your behalf beyond just following orders. In the advertisement picture that Facebook displays, “M” recommends gifts and restaurants when the user needs. Also, its simultaneous translation of different languages allows people in the world to be connected to each
