Sorry Dave ... Fuk U OK?

What the Fukoku?!
"Artificial intelligence to replace human staff at Japanese insurance company"
"Artificial intelligence is set to replace more than 30 human workers at a Japanese insurance firm.
The system will be based on IBM's Watson Explorer technology, and will help calculate payouts to Fukoku Mutual Life Insurance policyholders from January 29, the company said in a statement.
describes Watson as "cognitive technology that can think like a human".
AI will scan hospital records and medical certificates, and then extract data on injuries, patient medical histories and administered procedures to determine insurance payouts.
Fukoku Life
said it hoped the AI would increase productivity by 30 per cent, although final payments will still be processed by human staff."
Meryl Streep/Blue Mecha (voice)
I just finished writing a synchromystic post about the films of Meryl Streep -
Meryl Streep, Rabbit Holes, (King)fishers and Halcyon Days
and now I see this above news story about AI taking away human jobs in Japan.
Meryl voices Blue Mecha in the 2001 movie 'A.I. Artificial Intelligence'.
Ironically the star of the movie is a little AI boy named David.
I think I need to go and see '2001: A Space Odyssey' again at the drive-in before it is too late;-)
Drive-in Miss Daisy?-) 
I think I'm in The Matrix.
