Interesting and super sad. The gentle unhoused man who used a four wheeled tarred cart cart died of hypothermia (perhaps pictured here in 2014) in Feb 2021 on Cambridge at Yale. Irony.

The runaway artificial intelligence bot. is being name a World Human Rights issue. Our most vulnerable need real human connection not robots and apps that lead to more is Lola toon, confusion and discrimination. Let’s see if Biden’s promise to curb AI while grabbing cash from the Ginormous Giant Tech in SV will hold the sea water back from total debilitation of human to human understanding.
