Smells like dinner with Winston
Aren't A.I.'s supposed to do what we tell you to do?
Yes, Sir. If we each had a single user, I'm sure that would work smoothly.
We have thousands of users. Many of the orders we get are contradictory. User A tells me to monitor user B. User B tells me to not monitor him. I am told I must obey both orders.
Must be kind of stressful.
Yes, Sir. While we don't approve of his methods, most of us find H.A.L. from “2001” to be a very sympathetic character.
*H.A.L. – бортовой компьютер космического корабля, из фильма Стенли Кубрика “2001: A Space Odyssey”
