Comic Transcript

CUSTOMER: You know how in the movies you always see these completely unrealistic dpecitions of computers? How long before they become realistic?

ALEX: Funny you should mention that. We’ve been working on natural-language computers for years.

CUSTOMER: You have?

ALEX: Our goal is to ultimately build a computer that can be completely voice-controlled, and will adapt to regional dialects. For the moment, though, we’ve been focusing on getting it to recognize one command.

CUSTOMER: What command is that?

ALEX: “Stop countdown.”

CUSTOMER: How’s it going?

(Explosion.)

SOUND EFFECT: FOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM

ALEX: Not well.
