Ever fancied your own robot butler? How about a Taylor Swift automaton? Well Google might have the answer.
Google was granted a patent on Tuesday that could see it develop downloadable personalities for robots, such as your favorite "celebrity" or even a "deceased loved one," according to the filing.
Just as you would download an app, Google's patent outlines how a user could download actions and personalities.
The robot would also use information from a person's mobile devices such a calendar information, emails, texts messages, call logs, internet browsing history, and even someone's TV viewing schedule, to determine a personality to take on that would suit the user.
