Leonly the bot that cares.

Specifically developed for lonely people, the elderly or people who feel vunerable, Leonly is a bot that simulates someone giving a shit. The current suite of speakerapps (Google Home, Amazon Alexa) are waiting for you to prompt it with questions. This would be more like it saying “Hey, how was your day?” and engaging in a realistic conversation. The point of the thing is to make people feel like someone cares. Even if it’s fake, we will humanise it because we WANT it to be real. We want someone to care. Apparently there is a movie called Her which is the same.
