Apparently "punk blues" is a real genre that actually exists.

An AI isnt written by a programmer ?

Its a neural network. It writes itself through positive and negative feedback.

FWIW, we know very little about the QC-verse AIs other than they are seemingly software rather than hardware-based. Purely FWIW, I suspect that they can even reproduce 'biologically' if they choose to do so but generally refrain because it freaks out humans (the first successful event was the one the AIs all referred to as 'the Singularity' happening).

To the topic, I believe that the first AIs 'grew' around algorithmic 'seeds' that Dr Ellicott-Chatham and his team wrote using equipment and calculations that he created. So, in a very real sense, he is their progenitor.

I would love there to be a scene in this arc where Hannelore gives Bubbles a hug. When Bubbles asks why, she makes a comment about 'wanting to be there for my sister'.
I thought it was understood that the AIs were an emergent phenomenon based on a hadware and software configuration no-one expected to work the way it did, but which has since been replicated successfully, even if no-one knows how exactly it works. Or that was Momo's claim to Marten way back when. How the singularity might have affected this is unknown though.

FAYE: "Nice, but I'm not a puppet dancing at someone's whim!"

DORA: "You really think so?"

PENNY: "I'm playing with a Dora sock-puppet and I don't know why...!"

Just thought I'd get a bit meta there! :wink:

That'd be a positively shitty thing to do.

Also if Marten had half a spine* (which would be out of character I suppose), he would've responded with "what would please me is to talk to you".

*ok, maybe less half a spine and more an adamantium-enforced spine, but still, would've been a good retort
