Yes, we watched "The Creator" on Christmas Eve... not exactly a happy Christmas story (although the name would appear so). It is basically about AI - which is also a series of books I'm reading on my kindle (Steel Guardian by Cameron Coral). It's not the same story, but similar. Basically it's about future development of AI who are both intelligent and sentient (to a point). Ends up with the more intelligent AI robotics fighting a war against the humans. There are 3 camps: the robots who hate humans, the humans who hate robots, and the robots and humans that live together harmoniously (sound familiar?). In both book and movie, a child is created (not exactly sure how) and this child is considered to be either the 'answer' or the 'weapon' - depending on which camp you are in.
Anyhow, I found it interesting. I think AI is here and we ought to learn as much about it as we can in order to know how to deal with it. That said, those of us who are 'older' will probably not have to deal with it long. But our kids and grandkids will... (at least these are my thoughts).
OK, I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and will soon have a Happy New Year. 2024 is almost here! Hard to believe for one born in 1945. How did those years past so fast?
It's the day after Christmas and when DH hugged me and whispered Merry Christmas yesterday evening, my words were "Yes, we made it through another Christmas, how about that?" Not to say I didn't enjoy it, I did... love all the family/friend get togethers as well as the atmosphere of love and kindness... but lets' face it, it's a lot of hard work. But I'll continue to do it as long as I can because of the wonder of it all... and for the memories we're creating.
What are your thoughts the day after Christmas?
To close here's a few pics of our oldest son's 2 dogs dressed up for Christmas:
And yes, the outside ferals got their share of Christmas dinner and a few kitty toys!
