Conversations with AI: Finding Your Footing


Artificial Intelligence (AI) is no longer the future. It is becoming the present faster than you can say MTV.

Right now, a chatbot is learning how to hold a conversation by analyzing millions of Facebook posts, ranging from your favorite movie quotes to your local pizza menus, thus allowing it to figure out dinner, muse on the meaning of life, the color of love, philosophy, style, and even regional gratuity percentage.

  • I am going to a wedding and need shoes.
  • I see from your Inbox that you have a wedding in Turks and Caicos in August. It is described as beach formal. Is this the wedding that you are asking about?

  • Yes.
  • From my research, beach formal is typically dress pants or khakis and a button down shirt and flip-flops. Are you comfortable with wearing flip-flops?
  • Yes, but I don’t really want to.
  • In August of 2014, you purchased a pair of White Converse Chuck Taylors from Would those work?
    sources: Visa,,
  • Those might work, got any other suggestions?
  • Pale leather brogues are in style this summer. Roll up your pants a little and that could be a good look.
  • I like that, socks or no socks?
  • The photo included show the models without socks, and I personally think the look would be better without socks.

  • My feet sweat so I need socks.
  • Alright, then I think we have it figured out. Here are suggestions for the wedding, and where to buy them.
