    Marija Slavkovik at the University of Bergen, Norway wonders whether your digital assistant needs a moral, ethical dimension. But of course.

    Damn, that is so bloody idiotic. Or sad. That someone would think that we need AI enforcers to observe us 24/7. "Orwellian" isn't even adequate. Just a charming prototype. Damn.

    It doesn't stop there you know.
    The dog gone thing is likely quite capable of serving as a forced intrusion snoop on owner's neighbors.
    AI like any other program of similar means can be sensitized by modification to perform all sorts of "Orwellian" projects :confused:

    USA still the best. But getting worse!
    Everything I've known my whole life is upside down now. I'm surprised my head hasn't exploded. Nah I'll probably just get a heart attack.
