Finally, the fantasy marriage of two non-existent things I have been waiting for! Where is the honeymoon going to be? I suggest the singularity island. I love it there, it's the place that's always around the corner and you'll be there any day now, or within five years, or this decade, or for sure within a century. Let me fire up the old quantum computer and find out how much plane tickets are going for. Oh wait, it's already on, and it's also off, wtf? Can I call it deep quantum computing now please? I've always wanted to invent a new technology by taking an existing area and putting the bullshit hedge term 'deep' in front of it. It's like magic, works every time. I mean, it's like deep magic. See..every time.

Oh well, I can’t keep track of all this technology stuff anymore. What with machines learning left and right, AI's on every street corner, in my phone, running my city traffic lights, it's just nutty crazy. Good thing we have scientists in charge of all this wackiness. Data scientists. Oh, right, well, just because they are not really scientists, they are still smart and really good people, the best, the darndest bestest. Keep on quantum computin 'and AI's-away! Those machines will keep right on learning alongside ya. As long as the data scientists are at the helm of the SS machine learning we have nothing to fear but the violation of the universal laws of logic, and who gives a crap about that boring old stuff. Logical contradiction / logical schmondradiction is what I always say. Slap a deep on it and it's all good.
