8. Siri as a dating surrogate
The movie Her perfectly illustrates how the near future might look if intelligent operating systems or even our little helper Siri could fulfill our every wish. People will use them as a dating surrogate or simply as a friend who knows all their needs, preferences, and can be there at any given moment. With all the points mentioned above,
this one could happen very soon. Some people are single for a reason: it might be health problems, disability, lack of confidence, or simply fear, and an intelligent operating system will be great company for them. It can even help them build a future relationship with a real person.
