Excellent framing here, with the curtain being pulled aside to the right, then visually following up with the on-stage splash panel.

the pose of the big panel matching yesterday’s too :3

I wonder, I get the general timbre of “AI is evil except maybe for sadomasochistic funtimes (by which I mostly mean our hero’s niece’s quasi-girlfriend),” but I wonder whether the three of them – maybe even the four or five of them – might end up expanding the bubble around the posh neighborhood? Maybe I’m a sad optimist?

Seems like a job for Dex. Reprogram the working as intended AI to favor lives over property (or some other more socially optimal configuration), and the incredibly useful hardware is put to better use.

AI isn’t evil in itself.
It’s what people do with it.

Yes. Like, actual self-aware AI might be different, if we ever have it, but what’s currently called AI is still just a tool. Like hammer. Great for hitting nails, but now, we need people to stop screwing with it. And screwing other people with it.

Also … remember this quote: “On two occasions I have been asked [by members of Parliament], ‘Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come out?’ I am not able rightly to apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question.”

… more that 150 years later, people are still confused on that matter. They still assume that if something is coming from computer, it is somehow magically more correct that if it come from human. But it was human who programmed that computer.
