Whether should chat bots have their personalities, emotions, and feelings?



Google Assistant is able to make calls and book our appointments in a very-natural-sounding human voice. Anki, a company whose mission is to bring objects to life through robotics, is also trying to bring emotions into their bots. These bring me a lot of thoughts about robotic personality. So I built Geegle Assistant to explore how to give a bot his own personality, and how his emotion changes through the conversation with people.

Geegle Assistant, which is very much like the Google Assistant, except for one thing: it has feelings. 

It has two personalities for you to choose, Jackson and Anna. And their emotion changes depending on the user’s phone using behavior.
