The RCMP awarded a new social media monitoring contract Sept. 2 to a U.S. company that uses artificial intelligence to track what’s said on the web. Virginia-based Babel Street says its software can instantly translate between 200 languages and filter social media content by geographic areas and by sentiments expressed. Using artificial intelligence, it also analyzes relationships between content and senders, according to the company.

We will soon be implanted with an Alexa chip that reports everything to the central government. Then again it will be short lived because there is a giant asteroid heading for Earth.

LOL - until THEY decide what you are doing, is not in their best interest, of course.
When the government serves you, you are in control. When you serve the wishes of
the government, you are a slave.

The AI probably would think I'm a psychopath. Naturally vets have dark sense of humor, and came across this cartoon. Llama with hats.

And new running joke is CARRRRRRL, what did you do? Or my stomach was rumbling, that only hands could satisfy.

If they use the same AI system to "monitor" us, as they use to suggest publicity... it ought to be interesting.
- Should I have purchased some of their suggestions, I'd be trouble :bear:

For the record, you might not want to read "Thank You for My Service" by Mat Best... next to your significant other (or in any location where someone might ask you what you are laughing about)
- If you do, just say "nothing"... trying to explain will only lead to people being confused... (Been there, done that)
