AI. Robots. The Machines. Some people think they kill all humans, others say a utopian society, while most think somewhere in between or are just over there in Camp Who Cares Just Do Everything for Me and Don’t Take My Job.
I’m not taking any chances — I always say thanks to Siri. Though she currently doesn’t seem to respond too strongly to my politeness, I’m here in Camp Be Prepared (that’s what they always taught us in Boy Scouts). Hopefully this gesture means the machines will show me mercy if the day does come. And hey, can’t be bad practice for talking to humans either.
