Amazing | A Chinese Develops App To Answer Chatty Girlfriend's Messages

Amazing | A Chinese Develops App To Answer Chatty Girlfriend's Messages
A Chinese computer programmer has caused a stir on social media after creating a custom chatbot to reply his girlfriend's texts, 24/7.
According to him, 'he was too busy to do that himself...'
The software developer, Li Kaixiang is working for Chinese top internet firm, JD.com and didn't want to hurt her by ignoring her messages, so he got the idea to create a chatbot that would do the job, and even had to post some screenshots on WeChat.

According to him, the first day the chatbot went online, it exchanged 200 texts with the girlfriend, and so you see that he actually needed it?
In the course of the conversations, it could be noticed that Li's girlfriend was suspicious about something, and kept asking questions like: 'Why are you responding so fast?' or 'How did you do it?', but the chatbot was playing dumb.

The programmer's posts on Weibo didn't mention if whether the lady knew that the messages were auto-replied or nay, but a good number of people commended Li, calling him a genius and many requesting for the source code.
However the bot wasn't exactly perfect, and wrote in another conversation, 'Baby, this is the 618th day we’ve been together. Wish your mood is brighter than the sun,' which is sweet, only it was followed by information about the weather ('Temperature: 18.0° – 34.0° C… Wind: Level 3… Air quality: 42.0') which it probably scraped from somewhere.

According to a report by standardmedia.co.ke, not everyone was really impressed by the idea. Some people criticized Li Kaixiang for claiming to be too busy to answer his girlfriend’s texts while he had the time to work on a custom chatbot.
Others warned him that his partner might eventually fall in love with the chatbot. 'Be careful, your girlfriend might fall in love with the chatbot one day,' a person commented.

One thing’s for sure, Li’s post went viral almost instantly on Chinese social media, but he didn’t seem to enjoy the attention too much, since as soon as the news went viral, he deleted his Weibo account. Maybe he didn’t want his girlfriend to learn about his trick, or he just didn’t want people asking him about it.
