We are warned time and time again that one day Artificial Intelligence (AI) will replace human race and we’ll be relegated to a footnote in history.   I have no idea whether this is true but my latest interaction with one leading example of  AI gives me hope for us all.

Many many years ago there was a character on the late great Kenny Everett‘s show called Cupid Stunt a blonde haired bimbo film star, played by Everett in the most outrageous drag.  She would regale the audience with more and more lurid stories about how she would lose her cloths but ‘…in the best possible taste…’.  I was reminded of this when I asked SIRI on my Apple TV to find a programme about Constable the artist.   Instead of entering the word Constable the search field it replaced it with Cunt Stupid.   Needless to say there was no programme by such a name on the BBC iPlayer.

I believe Tyndale’s translation of the book of Matthew Chapter 7 verse 16 is very pertinent here:

By their fruits you will know them

Stupid Cunt indeed.
