Siri Full Metal Jacket crossover

The current iterations of intelligent personal assistants like Siri are fairly reactive. You ask them a question, they respond. But the future generations, and the ones I will be intrigued to experiment with, will be proactive. They will push information your way. They will remind you of things.

And the step beyond that is the intelligent personal assistant that challenges you. One that tells you off for eating too much, or for slacking off, or for not going for a run. And we'll be able to "skin" them too, so I can have Gunnery Sergeant Hartman (of Full Metal Jacket) calling me a "puke" and "maggot", and pushing me to exercise harder.
