Get Lauren

Artist Lauren McCarthy is renting herself out for three days at a time as a 'virtual assistant' like Siri, Alexa, or Google Now. From her website:

LAUREN is a human intelligent smart home. Lauren will visit your home, deploy a series of smart devices, and watch over you remotely 24/7. Lauren will control your home for you, attempting to be better than an AI, understanding you as a person. You will be able to interact with her by calling her name, but she will also do things for you without your asking. She will learn faster than an algorithm, adapting to your desires and anticipating your needs.

So an LA performance artist is going to stay awake for 72 hours straight to make decisions on how to control all the lights and electronics in my home. Yeah, I'm sure that would go well.

The middle image shows a guy in a towel brushing his teeth. That might be a little too personal for my taste.
