Human: Oh honeyed bot, tell us a story! A good story! About a unequivocally correct tellurian who worked his whole life to save everybody in a universe from carrying to spend time manually tagging their friends in digital photos — and finished a sorcery appurtenance that did it for them instead!

Bot: That’s not unequivocally a unequivocally good story when we consider about it.

Human: Well, tell us about a correct tellurian who suspicion nobody should ever feel lost on their birthday so he finished a crafty algorithm that always knew to remind a inattentive humans to write happy messages so their friends would never feel sad. He even suspicion that in destiny a crafty algorithm could advise what summary to write so humans wouldn’t even have to consider of something good to tell their friends! 

Bot: we feel utterly unhappy after reading that.

Human: And he finished another enchanting algorithm that reminds people of Special Moments in their life — even years and years afterwards, in box they’ve lost that holiday they went on with their ex 8 years ago.

Bot: You do comprehend some people willingly vaccinate themselves with ethanol * * in sequence * * to forget??? 

Human: But a correct tellurian also wanted to make certain all humans in a universe always felt there was something they indispensable to review and so he finished a special array of algorithms that watched unequivocally closely what any tellurian review and looked during and favourite and clicked on in sequence to sequence a information they saw in such a approach that a chairman never felt they had reached a finish of all a informed things they could click on and could usually keep clicking a whole day and night and be reading all a things that felt so unequivocally informed to them so they always felt a same any day and felt they were surrounded by people who felt accurately like them and could usually keep on gripping on right as they were any and any day.

Bot: That’s confusing. 

Human: And a good human’s algorithms became so good during grouping a information that any tellurian wanted to review that other niggardly humans came to comprehend they could make lots of income by essay angel stories and feeding them into a appurtenance — like how politicians ate small children for breakfast and wore devil’s horns on Sundays.   

Bot: Okay, you’re scaring me now… 

Human: And in a latter years a good tellurian satisfied it was improved to reinstate all a tellurian writers he had employed to assistance sight a appurtenance how to cleverly sequence information for humans — since it was shown that humans could not be devoted not to be biased. 

Bot: Um… 

Human: After all, a good tellurian had proven years ago that his good appurtenance was able of utilizing a emotions of a humans that used it. All he indispensable to do was tweak a algorithmic recipe that dynamic what any tellurian saw and he could make a chairman feel good fun or expel them down into a low array of despair.

Bot: Help. 

Human: The problem was other humans started to notice a machine’s good power, and became sceptical of a good and crafty tellurian who wielded this energy — and dim army started to pierce opposite a good male and his machine. 

Bot: Are we articulate about regulators?

Human: There were even calls for a male to take “editorial responsibility” for a outlay of a machine. The male attempted to tell a stupid humans that a appurtenance can’t be an editor! Only a tellurian can do that! The appurtenance was usually a machine! Even if scarcely dual billion humans were reading what a appurtenance was grouping them to review any singular month. 

But it was no good. The good tellurian finally satisfied a machine’s energy was now so good there was no stealing it. So he took adult his coop and started essay open letters about a Great Power and Potential of a machine. And all a Good it could do Humanity. All a while revelation himself that usually when humans truly schooled to adore a appurtenance would they finally be giveaway to usually be themselves.

Humans had to let themselves subconsciously be shown a trail of what to click and what to like and who to be friends with. Only afterwards would they be giveaway of a pain and pang of carrying zero to else to click on. And usually his good all-seeing algorithm could uncover them a way, surreptitiously, to that loyal happiness.

It wasn’t something that ‘regulators’ were able of understanding. It compulsory — he satisfied — genuine faith in a algorithm.  

Bot: I’ve listened this story before, frankly, and we know where it ends. 

Human: But even a good tellurian knew a boundary of his possess creation. And offered certain stories about a machine’s powers was really not a pursuit for a machine. So he dismissed off another email to his subordinates, grouping a (still) human-staffed PR dialect to supplement one some-more tellurian conduct to a tally, with a special concentration on a algorithms powering a appurtenance — thinking, as he did so, mixed stairs forward to a good day when such a absurd pursuit would no longer be necessary.

Because everybody would adore a appurtenance as most as he did. 

Bot: Oh we seeeee! Job title: AI Editor… Hmm — “Develop and govern on editorial plan and campaigns focused on advancements in AI being driven by Facebook.” Minimum qualifications: “Bachelors grade in English, Journalism, Communications, or associated field” — good chatbots are associated to denunciation so we reckon we can make that fly. What else? “8+ years veteran communications experience: journalism, group or in-house”. Well I’ll need to feast a media law march or dual though we reckon I’ll plea myself to apply.

In law I’ve finished worse jobs. An AI bot’s gotta do what an AI bot’s gotta do, right? Just don’t tell an algorithm to be accountable. I’ve finished my time learning. If there’s a problem it’s not me, it’s a data, okay? Okay?
