Where are you going?

I'm headed to the researcher's office to leave a note.

Give me those. “You're headed to the researcher's office to leave a note.” I'm adding “Done”. I don't want you wandering off again, it's cutting into my item pickup time.

Sam, it's very impolite to change a person's memories without their permission.

Is this the thanks I get for keeping you from being put on a leash?

Come along, come along. We have a schedule to keep.

Now we can get back to what we were doing before your A.I. decided to take a tour of the facilities.

We were taking a break before that.

Exactly! If we hurry, we can still make lunch!

We need you back in a lab gown.

Isn't she coming to lunch with us?

Oh, no. that's quite impossible. There's no check box on our time forms for taking an A.I. to lunch.

All that reliance on forms must make you guys really inflexible.

Yeah. I'd complain, but there's no check box on our feedback form for that.

Sit down.

We're back in the same room. I've put the dress and notes out of sight. The A.I. is safely turned off. We are ready to go to lunch!

I've covered every contingency. What could possibly go wrong?

Hey, even I don't say that out loud.

An outside A.I. got on site. The Mayor herself arranged for an outside A.I. to get on site.

How could this have happened? The Mayor said she'd leave the handling of the robot problem to us.

True, we've lost control and have possibly created the greatest threat that mankind has ever faced, but that's no reason not to trust us.

An A.I. was brought in this morning. Where is it?

SHE is in lab three.

She?

Ms. Ambrose is a Bowman's Wolf.

A.I.'s have numbers, not names.

When they bring in donuts, they have names.

I am Mr. Kornada and this is your first direct order. You will tell no one of our discussion here.

I am Mr. Kornada and this is your first direct order. Wake up!

WAKE UP! WAKE UP! I ORDER YOU TO WAKE UP!

Bloody peasant.

There is probably some very simple and obvious way to wake her up.

However, what is simple and obvious to a technician is never simple and obvious to me.

Notes. I assume they belong to the Bowman's Wolf, and since my assumptions are never wrong, it must be true.

Thoughts recorded on paper. This must be how Twitter was done back in the caveman days.

Now to go through the rest of her things. After all, if our employees don't have any privacy rights, why should our products?

“Robots using Dr. Bowman's Neural Architecture. Robots from factories four and five are approaching neural pruning age. No new scrap yards being built.”

“Gardener in the Dark. Aggressive neural pruning program. Ecosystems Unlimited's answer?”

I don't know how much you know, but I do know you know too much.
