Mayuri Shiina brings a cognitive computing system—with a large pink Oopa toy serving as its terminal—to the Future Gadget Lab, insisting that it will help her and Kurisu Makise prepare fried chicken for the group, much to the dismay of Rintarou Okabe and Itaru "Daru" Hashida. Despite not having the proper ingredients, the Oopa cognitive computer assists Mayuri and Kurisu in perfecting a dish that the other lab members will enjoy.

In the following episodes, the cognitive computer continues to aid Okabe and his friends in their day-to-day lives. From helping Okabe and Kurisu to reconcile after an argument, to collecting input from the lab members to suggest improvements for the Lab; Okabe may not realize it yet, but his lab has gained a valuable asset!

Steins;Gate: Soumei Eichi no Cognitive Computing, or Steins;Gate: The Sagacious Wisdom of Cognitive Computing in English, consists of four short episodes. The shorts were streamed on IBM Japan’s website and official YouTube channel.

The Cognitive Computing project is the result of a collaboration between Steins;Gate creator Chiyomaru Shikura of 5pb. Inc. and IBM Japan representatives. The series of shorts serve to promote IBM’s research in cognitive computing, or artificial intelligence.

As a fan of Steins;Gate, I decided to watch these shorts. Before you watch these shorts, there are a few things to keep in mind. These shorts are advertisements, meant to show people how IBM's "cognitive computing" initiative might enhance people's lives in the future. The 4 shorts use the Steins;Gate characters and universe to show different scenarios and how the "cognitive computing" (represented by an Oopa with a cutesy voice) help solve problems.

If you can get past the fact that these are advertisements, and you are a fan of S;G, there are some very enjoyable moments and interactions in the approximately 12 minutes of ...

Although I'm still not sure why IBN sponsored this, I'm really glad that they did.

To put it bluntly, these short episodes show us Stein;s Gate re-imagined as a slice-of-life anime.

With any sort of apparent threat seemingly gone, we get to enjoy our characters doing everyday things like cooking, going shopping, riding the subway and even renting an apartment (not necessarily in that order).

By using a cute little robot to portray cognitive computing and create more hilariously awkward situations, these shorts never fail to disappoint and, if anything, are likely to bring a smile to your face.

At 12 minutes total, they're not ...

Steins;Gate: The IBM Ad is a series of four four-ish minute long OVAs created as a collaboration with IBM to explain the impact their Cognitive Computing (AKA advanced weak AI) could have on daily life. The shorts follow the Gadget Lab some time after the OVA episode as they relax and live normal lives together. Mayuri brings in a Upa she brought that have Cognitive Computing on board and they proceed to use it for a variety of mundane yet entertaining things.

The story is weak, but it doesn't do anything to hurt Steins;Gate's great plot. Its place in the timeline is clear, but its ...
