Q.bo Daniel Meets Q.bo Jane

It would be nice if there really was some type of AI where their conversation to each other wasn't so pre-programmed (I'm guessing that it's very much so programmed that way and not in any way intuitive via complex behavioral & speech based AI algorithms where words are actually chosen and made up into sentences instead of a sentence just chosen from a list based on what was said).
