NaPoWriMo Day 24: Virtual intelligence

This one surprised me. I had planned a comic poem about bunnies and eggs.

Virtual intelligence

Chess masters, I’ve read, play more
and more like the machines
they train against. IBM’s Watson
takes Jeopardy, and could doubtless
out-deduce Holmes himself. Simulated
sea battle tournaments are won
by players who let
software devise their strategies.
In Pakistan, American drones kill
— well, we’re not sure who,
but they perform beautifully.
