There are other humans and a.i.s in relationships. When local neural net manufacture began, people got robots as soon as they could. They helped care for the house, raise the kids. They became part of the family.
When the kids moved out, a family robot usually went with them. We now know the neural pruning process was going on right as they were being introduced to these new environments. The kids were meeting new people. So were the robots.
Robots can transmit. Their memories can be accessed. At least with you I don't have to lecture on managing your privacy settings.
