I'm curious about this, as to why most of the AI systems found in spaceships and other "advanced" technologies tend to be more female-oriented.
Female-oriented as in, the entirety of the ship/system is controlled by a female AI. Good examples would include Cortana, from the HALO series, Gordon Freeman's HEV suit. Many movies also do this, where the onboard computer system has a feminine voice. The only male AI system I know of is HAL (Space Odyssey 2001), and even then, his voice isn't entirely male (more robotic than anything).
IF anything, is this a trend that's been going on for decades? Is this something recent? Why are most AI systems feminine?
