HER name is Samantha. Actually a name picked up randomly out of a list of names that the OS, presented in this near-future, LA based, romantic comedy, picks to name herself. 
A system developed to grow from experiences and to go way beyond the combined characteristics of its programmers.

In 1988 Jessica Rabbit, the character from the movie 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit', answers:

I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way.

In Spike Jonze's movie 'HER', Samantha asks herself:

Are these feelings real,(...) or is it just programming?

Although the director says the movie is not about technology, but very much about intimacy it is (almost) impossible to imagine a near future without having the two together. 
The movie stands out for having not only a wonderful screenplay but for the way it's edited and presented to us. A relation between a voice and a fantastic - almost unrecognizable - Theodore, played by Joaquin Pheonix.
