  2. A.I. Mario Figures out How to Destroy His Enemies; Now You’re Playing God With Power

    "If I talk to the humans, they certainly learn to trust me."

    I feel so much better about the Singularity.

    You guys remember rad-as-HECK Ada Lovelace from Sam's profile of her earlier this year, right? The Ada Lovelace? The one with a day of the year named after her plus an entire computer language? The woman who essentially wrote the world's first-ever computer program and predicted the creative capabilities of modern machines? Well, good.
