As in what's minimal or it's too much?  ::)
More that it's a touch screen  ::)

Art; I tried copy-pasting the eyes onto the tablet for that pun, but then it looked really wrong  ;D
CO2 retains heat. More CO2 in the air = hotter climate.

For that matter, why do androids, or robots (aside from perhaps the adult variety) need to have an assigned gender?
There are dozens of names that are gender-neutral or the bot could just be referred to as "it".
I guess it either makes some people feel better or somehow it becomes a bit easier to interact with, for whatever reason.

In the world of AI, it's the thought that counts!

Interestingly, the company that created Pepper refers to it as "he", the hips and skirt-like undercarriage seem to suggest otherwise in my opinion, but may also have emerged from the design parameters:

Most robots don't have a specific gender in their design, the Nao robots from the same company don't really have anything to suggest they are one or the other, same for Honda's robots like Asimo. But people read gender into them because they look like humans, and humans have genders, so it comes with the territory until singular "they" becomes more commonplace.
Heck, ships and countries are called "she" despite having no humanoid features. When I worked at an architect bureau, I remember a colleague calling a manufacturer of cupboards and asking why on Earth all their products had female names  ;D . They'd never thought about it.

Guys, I think I found the question to the answer.
CO2 retains heat. More CO2 in the air = hotter climate.
