My Favorite Teddy Bear by jhl28

For my twenty second birthday, one of my friends gave me a Toys"R"Us gift card.

The gift card was not just an ordinary gift card.

April 27, 2009, 9:36 am - [2]

My friend’s parent serves as a member of the Board of Directors of the Toys?R?Us, and he received the gift card from his parent.

April 27, 2009, 9:42 am - [3]

The gift card was special because it allowed me to get any one of new toys for free.

April 27, 2009, 9:49 am - [4]

After a careful consideration, I decided to use the card to buy a teddy bear that has artificial intelligence.

April 27, 2009, 9:51 am - [5]

From improved technology, an old teddy bear can now become a new teddy bear with artificial intelligence.

April 27, 2009, 9:56 am - [6]

Meaning, the teddy bear will have features such as speech recognition and audio output, but it will not have any information nor memory.

April 27, 2009, 10:22 am - [7]

Hence, a new teddy bear will be just like a new baby except that it is a robot.

April 27, 2009, 10:22 am - [8]

I will be able to control its gender, personality, and name.(In the last sentence 'new' should be 'newborn')

April 27, 2009, 10:27 am - [9]

I decided to use the gift card to get an AI teddy bear to use it as my personal encyclopedia and language dictionary.

April 27, 2009, 10:33 am - [10]

My AI teddy bear will have a memory disk and USB.

April 27, 2009, 10:34 am - [11]

The USB will allow me to connect the bear to my computer and download information into the memory disk.

April 27, 2009, 10:35 am - [12]

My teddy bear will be able to contain any information on the internet and stay updated by downloading new information regularly.

April 27, 2009, 10:37 am - [13]

The memory disk will be able to contain limited information due to its capacity.

April 27, 2009, 10:39 am - [14]

However, the teddy bear will be able to contain more information by getting a new memory disk.

April 27, 2009, 10:40 am - [15]

Whenever I try to find something on the internet, I usually use Wikipedia.

April 27, 2009, 10:42 am - [16]

My new AI teddy bear will save me the trouble of going to my computer everytime to search information on the internet.

April 27, 2009, 10:45 am - [17]

Moreover, instead of typing, I will be able to search by saying words to my teddy bear.

April 27, 2009, 10:46 am - [18]

Furthermore, I sometimes need to look up on the internet to find words in different languages.

April 27, 2009, 10:48 am - [19]

For example, I sometimes want to say apple in Chinese, and I will have to search to learn that it is ?ping guo’.

April 27, 2009, 10:49 am - [20]

Now I will be able to not only search faster, but also hear words in different languages with correct pronunciations.

April 27, 2009, 10:51 am - [21]

My AI teddy bear will not be just a regular toy.

April 27, 2009, 10:54 am - [22]

It will be a very useful AI robot that helps me and saves me time.

April 27, 2009, 10:55 am - [23]

For my teddy bear, I will name Ji-Hae.

April 27, 2009, 10:59 am - [24]

Ji-Hae is from a Korean word, which is written as 지혜, and it means intelligence and wisdom.

April 27, 2009, 11:00 am - [25]

I will be also capable of setting my AI teddy bear gender.

April 27, 2009, 11:01 am - [26]

I believe gender is a very important component that affects personalities.

April 27, 2009, 11:02 am - [27]

After a dilemma, I will set my AI teddy to a female.

April 27, 2009, 11:07 am - [28]

I believe that female will fit my teddy bear better because I think male robot will become rebellious.

April 27, 2009, 11:09 am - [29]

I think female AI will be more cooperative and supportive whenever I ask for it to search something.

April 27, 2009, 11:10 am - [30]

I assume that more females are more on top of tasks than males at a given time and a specific task.

April 27, 2009, 11:19 am - [31]

Although I know I am biased, I believe females are more diligent and intelligent than males.

April 27, 2009, 11:20 am - [32]

If I were to buy more AI teddy bears, I would use them for other purposes.

April 27, 2009, 11:20 am - [33]

They will certainly have distinguishable different names, genders, and personalities.

April 27, 2009, 11:22 am - [34]

However, for my first AI teddy bear, it will be a female AI robot that is very useful, informative, supportive, and helpful.
