  It may not that great right now, but let’s remember 20-30 years from now, robots will be advanced so that you will be able to have a genuine conversation with them in a very realistic sounding voice. Of course they will still lack that ability to talk about past experiences and anecdotes about their life, but in the future a conversation with a robot will be a vastly different experience.
