      I mention the Surface because it is one piece of hardware rumored to be getting an NPU chip.

      My daughter works for the Canadian Federal government as part of a task force to replace scores of incompatible Human Resources systems with a single source data, unified services system. I am sure machine learning will be part of it. The government tried to do this once before, but made a lot of stupid decisions like relocating all the jobs in HR to New Brunswick from Ottawa, losing all instititutional memory in the process. Also there was a lot of pushback in the individual departments and agencies as nobody gets everything they want with a new system. The result was a disaster, as folks weren't paid for weeks, promotions and pay grade changes were not logged. Fortunately my daughter wasn't working on this. Now she is tasked with taking a human (one might say humane) look at any proposed new system - which they must do as the Phoenix system will never be accepted. She is probably one of the few people in the civil service that has Master's degrees in both science and in the humanities. Good luck to her, I say. Her working hardware is a Microsoft Surface laptop, a dock and a couple of big monitors.

      That and based on the data being fed, humans are the problem. A logical deduction would be to end humanity to"save" the planet. Reminds me of the classic "War Games" from 1984.
