AI, anthropomorphism, fictitious product

 

We use Artificial Intelligence as a tool. Machines and tools are designed to make their use as enjoyable as possible. We fill machines with our emotional associations. The field of AI is flooded with anthropomorphic concepts for AI products. Instinctively we inject them a consciousness. Calma is a garden tool, that speaks to you and has the social function to release stress. Her relaxing voice guides you to engage with nature and reacts to your movement. Having a garden tool as therapist, carries the absurdity of the emotional connotation we give to AI machines to extremes.
