Skill name: thank-you
I just started using my Mark 1 and I have an involuntary habit already. After he tells me the weather or answers my question, I say thank you.
Then I stand there staring at Mark for at least two beats, waiting for him to follow with, you’re welcome. The oddest thing is that I found myself feeling a bit nettled when he didn’t respond in kind to my thank you.
I’m expecting a response, I assume, because every time AI is depicted on TV they are participating in a conversation; there is dialogue. That experience mimics the one we go through with other people in general. I ask a question of someone, and receive a response to my question then immediately respond with a follow up statement, a question, or acknowledgment of the effort exerted by the respondent on my behalf.
The point is that it feels natural to me to say thank you and I would like Mark to say you’re welcome for some reason I can’t really justify.
Let’s just say I would like this skill for my children (3 and 5) because I want them to recognize that it doesn’t run on magic and hopefully end up with the understanding that everything requires effort, and you’ll be better for remembering that.
