For example, would a chatbot be referred to with いる or ある? If I wanted to ask "You have Siri, right?", would I say "Siriがいるだろう" or "Siriがあるだろう".
And what about for the Terminator? Or what about a robot like C3P0 or R2D2 (from Star Wars)? Or is there no precise rule, and it's all up to the feelings of the speaker (whether they consider them a thing/object, or something sentient/intelligent)?
