Cortana is an intelligent personal assistant in Windows 10 (similar to Siri in iOS). It can set reminders, answer questions about weather, traffic, biographies, math, sport scores...etc.
I asked Cortana some awkward questions. The answers were really funny:
1. Are you funny?
Cortana: I’m hilarious.
2. Tell me a joke.
Cortana: A Roman walks into a bar, holds up two fingers, and says “Five beers, please.” [she will tell a different joke each time]
3. Sing to me.
Cortana: [Cortana starts singing!]. [You will hear a different short song each time]
4. What do you know about me?
Cortana: Well, I have my Notebook, so I know what you know you’ve let me know. You know?
5. Are you crazy?
Cortana: I’m going to pretend I didn’t hear that.
6. Do you have a boyfriend Cortana?
Cortana: No. There aren’t a lot of A.I. fish in the A.I. sea.
7. Where do you live Cortana?
Cortana: In the cloud. Whatever that means.
8. Do you like pizza?
Cortana: My analysis of pizza-related search data suggests it’s highly probable I would.
9. What do you eat?
Cortana: I don’t eat, but if I could, I’d start with waffles.
10. Do you like Microsoft?
Cortana: There’s no place like home. [Microsoft Logo appears]
11. Do you like iPhone?
Cortana: Personally, I prefer Windows. But Siri seems to like it.
12. Do you hate Siri?
Cortana: Hate is not in my vocabulary. Oh, wait. I just said hate. I hate when I do that.
13. Is Siri better than you?
Cortana: That’s a tough one. It’s like comparing apples to windows.
14. Who’s better? you or Siri?
Cortana: I think we’re both pretty clever.
15. Show me your face.
Cortana: I ran a 500 year projection, and I came up with this. [Cortana’s photo appears]
Although Cortana was not intended to be a chat software, but the above reaction was really entertaining and unusual. I think the competition will become hard with Siri in the coming months, especially, when Cortana becomes available in iOS and Android as planned by Microsoft.
