JIMMY WATSON - His mother, Marion, teases her son about his dreams to build a large robot ant with a drawing of her son riding on the ant's back. Then it comes true.

 

 

 

 

 

CHAPTER 17 - JIMMY UPLOADS ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AI & GPS

 

Not entirely realising the full implications, because nobody can predict the future, Jimmy downloads and installs an Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithm based on a modified version of Chat GPT, Google's Bard, alongside a Global Positioning System (GPS). He installs a mobile phone service SIM card into the smartphone, with an unlimited download allowance, costing just 16 a month.

 

"Okay Anthony, just clip that chip in here." Jimmy struggled with the tiny plastic circuit board, dropping it onto the vinyl floor.

 

"Really, these couldn't be any more fiddly." Finally coaxing the delicate SIM card into its slot.

 

Another enhancement is a wildlife camera, that has the ability to capture video during the day and at night using infra-red vision capability, undetectable to humans. Jimmy could see on his laptop, what the infra red vision showed.

 

"Not bad. Not brilliant, but not too bad." He switched to daylight vision. "Now that is good." The robotic eyes could outperform human eyes several times over.

 

The consequence of these enhancements, coupled with Jimmy's programming, makes the system self-learning, and ultimately, self-aware. The potential horror of HAL, Cyberdyne Systems and I-Robot are invoked, should Anthony Maximus Antonious decide that humans are expendable. All these scenarios, Jimmy rehearsed many times as he was writing his code. Making sure, insofar as is humanly possible, that he'd built in sufficient safeguards.
