Bots adopt foreign language, startle humans

Burger King ‘O.K. Google’ Ad Doesn’t Seem O.K. With Google

On the TV, there was this Burger King bot talking about the wonders of the Whopper.  That bot spoke to the Google home appliance bot, sent it a message in english to describe the whopper in even greater wonder.  What a trick! Those clever bots. They should have talked in subtle intonations within the audio, direct, in their own language.

But, our world becomes an any to any language communications. I go through my living room and loudspeaker bot is conversing with toaster bot about theoretical physics. Why not?
