Artificial Intelligence: Testing It

On 16 July, I tested AI for advice on filial bonding using a hypothetical background. Its response is sweeping but comprehensive. All very obvious and sensible. I shared it with my sister!!

Prompt:

What steps should I take to develop a close relationship with my sister, Rashmi? She is 13 years younger than me. We are not close. Apart from the age difference, we did not spend our childhood together. She knows hardly anything about me or what I have done to this day. That apart, due to our upbringing and growing up environments – she in the Indian context, me as a loner in the Australian context – we are vastly different. Rashmi is an Indian – Indian replete with local cultural norms. I am a hybrid, mostly infused with Western rationalist values and with unconscious and conscious biases against most Indian societal mores. But the time has come to know Rashmi better at this latest age of life and ensure she knows me well enough to Execute my Will faithfully. What steps should I take to achieve this?
