Siri 1.0 Nearly Self-Aware in Maslow's Hierarchy of Robot Needs

We found this on Google+ and decided to plot the current version of Siri on Maslow's Heirarchy of Robot Needs, in 1.0 Siri is just two steps below a self-actualized robot... and destroying all humans.

Based on Abraham Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs (non-robot), to become self-actualized an individual must meet basic levels of needs at the bottom of the pyramid to advance. The initial needs are the minimum physiological needs like food and water. The second level deals with safety and shelter. The third level is related to belonging and love, followed by confidence and self esteem, which are needed before achieving self-actualization where one realizes their full potential.

In Siri's case, just above a sense of belonging, Siri 1.0 is just one step short of becoming self-aware, two steps shy of complete self-actualization and the need to destroy all humans.

Clearly we're fracked when 3.0 comes out.
