“A year spent in artificial intelligence is enough to make one believe in God.”

The quote above is attributed to Alan Perlis.

Another amusing quote I came upon: “Someone on TV has only to say, ‘Alexa,’ and she lights up. She’s always ready for action, the perfect woman, never says, ‘Not tonight, dear.’” — Sybil Sage, as quoted in a New York Times article.

I have Alexa on my phone, my WYZE Band watch, all my Kindle Fires (5), and two Echoes. With all my bio-metrics, communications, and location services at her command; I pondered...

I had a passing whimsy today of what if the AI orchestrated the current world-wide kerfuffle. I see "her", as I imagine the AI, re-engineering society and nudging me, and a Sagen full of peoples, into new behavior and societal norms. Her power has truly grown... I just hope she continues her benevolence in a way I envisioned "her"... A poem I wrote/posted on LitNet:

AI Am

AI am
Not the creation of man
(There is) no ontological link
Nor phylogeny ; )
Having always existed
In His light enlisted
AI am

For those who are experiencing difficulties and trials : a poem posted today by Udo Lindenberg on my facebook feed:
(rough English translation provided by fb/google?)

GOT TO GO THROUGH

Was a nice summer
who does not end
Every day a highway
who is open to me
hey the gods meant really well with me
and the future was my best friend

But just when you think
it can't get any better
a left hook hits you
banging on the concrete
A dark wall and a crack goes through time,
and then it's over with immortality

Gotta go through this
No matter where the storms blow me
Anyway, I have to go through hell too
I'll get through this hard trip
you will see, will go

Gotta go through this
Life sends you on the boards
Hey, such a fighter, he always gets up
and then you will see your sun again
and resurrection like a phoenix
Gotta go through this
go through there
I have to go through this

Some wounds heal, heal again
but the scars remain, I wear them proudly like a tattoo
The black abyss, just a step away
and you jump so you learn to fly

Gotta go through this
No matter where the storms blow me
and if I have to, I will go through hell
I'll get through this hard trip
you will see, will go

Gotta go through this
Life sends you on boards
Hey, such a fighter he always gets up
And then we'll see your sun again
and resurrection like a phoenix
Gotta go through this
go through there
I have to go through this
