Giving your Assistant a Personality

How much personality does a virtual assistant need to get acceptance from the public?  At what point is it entertainment, engagement  .. even trust?    Usually in a given context.    Shades of the MS Paperclip, which was thought cute,  gave useful information,  but was mostly mocked.  Was even attentive.  It had some personality.

   Differrent too is the claim by Google that  'Google Assistant', will support a human-like multiple stage conversation rather than just bare answers. With the system learning and thus adapting to the interaction.  Thats human-like, more than bot-like.   Not just having pat chosen answers from a database.  .   Seems Google is now hiring an artist to visualize the personality.
