Small talk

Lately I’ve had a few conversations that go like this:

Me: How’s it going? Him: Pretty good, how are you? Me: I’m ok, how are you? Him: <pause> … good.

I think “I’m ok, how are you?” just kinda rolls of the tongue.  I guess a person’s status doesn’t really change after only two seconds.

    Could be worse. If it was a “her” instead of “him”, the conversation is definitely not going well.

    Could be better. If it was an “it” instead of “him.” I have no problem with making artificial intelligence feel uncomfortable.

    Indeed. The problem would lie more with the reason of conversing with artificial intelligence. What is not considered as loss is often of no value.
