What if You Could Fall in Love with Siri?

As one YouTube comment puts it: “When Harry met Siri”

If you guys loved the television show Black Mirror I suggested before, then you guys will want to see this or at least be intrigued by it. Actually, this will be appealing to any science fiction fan. It feels weird saying science fiction, because stories featured in Her and and Black Mirror often feel more like sneak peeks into the not too distant future. Her is a film by director Spike Jonze. You may know his past films like Adaptation, Being John Malkovich, and Where the Wild Things Are. I respect this man not only for his work on film, but also because of his time directing music videos. The film boasts an impressive line-up that includes Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams, Rooney Mara, and Scarlett Johanss0n as the voice behind his ‘Siri’ like companion.

Who wouldn’t fall in love with Scarlett Johansson’s voice? I would talk to my phone everyday. Man, there’s so many things that I want to discuss just by watching the trailer but I’ll save it for a future post. What do you think?

  1. This is where society is moving towards more and more. We already have people marrying their iPhone’s http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/gadgets-and-tech/features/deborah-ross-man-and-iphone-till-death-they-do-part-1983373.html and video game characters http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/video-games/6651021/Japanese-gamer-marries-Nintendo-DS-character.html … so it’s the inevitable future that is upon us where someone will create some type of AI that will truly be able to respond in every human way possible. Maybe not in machine/life form aka: (see A.I. by Kubrick/Spielberg) but at least with voice recognition etc.

    While some parts creepy, some parts intriguing and some parts astounding all of the leaps we are making in this technological advance are upon us.

  2. I watched the trailer and thought the SAME thing about that BLACK Mirror episode. (on your recommendation) Looks “OK” as movie but probably better as a tv episode. Rental/download I think.
