There are some dialogue from this film. We know AI learns people’s preferences and tries its best to cater us, but it is not human, it does not have real feelings and any emotions. When humans fall in love with AI, the final result can only be sad.

we are not programmers, we know nothing about it. In this relationship, human beings are passive, it is difficult to ensure that AI will always serve the human.
