A Chinese software engineer has come up with a solution which is every girlfriend’s nightmare and very lazy boyfriend’s dream. Tbh, we don’t know how to exactly feel about this digital boyfriend and how it can affect a couple’s emotional growth given services such as rental boyfriend is already in existence. According to reports, the Chinese software engineer Li KaiXiang came up with the chatbot idea to keep his girlfriend happy.
"Baby, this is our 618th day together. Hope you’ll feel bright as the sun’’ a romantic text popped up the girlfriend’s screen. The next message that followed is far from romantic, "Temperature: 18.0° - 34.0° C… Wind: Level 3… Air quality: 42.0", it read. Unless the girlfriend is a robot, suspicion is guaranteed to ensue and which did.
The woman suspecting that something was wrong because it was too right asked, ‘how was this designed’ to which chatbot smartly responded "How can I respond when there's no problem."
Li's Weibo account has reportedly been deleted, however, screenshots from the chat between a bot and his girlfriend was shared on Weibo and has gone viral.
While the whole thing is amusing, some netzines felt that it was lazy on the boyfriend’s part to look for an easy way out. While some flet otherwise and were impressed with the boyfriend's idea saying that they appreciate Li's romantic gesture to entertain his partner even asking to share the source code, "Brother, send me the source code please’’ a user wrote.
