This thesis is a critique on the ease in which humans tend to anthropomorphize chatbots, assigning human characteristics to entities that fundamentally will never understand the human experience. It will be further exploring these consequences on our society's socio-cultural fabric, representations of the self and identity formation in terms of communication and the essence of humanity.
