For a few years A.I.’s like Apple’s Siri and Google’s Assistant have been utilised less for their actual purpose and more for answering weird questions like – Why did the chicken cross the road? To which she/he/it gives an existential answer like, “Maybe it is the chicken that is standing still, and it is the road that crosses under it.”
Thankfully, programmers have a sense of humour, and the robotic clap backs are endless. There’s even a HAL 9000 shout-out. The latest hot question to ask Siri comes from the brand new Lego Batman Movie, where the small, masked crusader has his own A.I. which he calls, ‘puter.
If you ask address Siri as “computer or ‘puter,” she/he/it will answer with some pretty hilarious Batman-themed replies.
With this in mind, we at loaded have compiled a list of madness asked of Siri and the Google assistant.
