15 years old it might be. but still in a way relevant, it demonstrates
that  we are slowly delegating our  human thinking processes to computer
based devices..
providing such technology is built with appropriate safeguards then all
well and good but if we are not careful we could slip into a nightmare
scenario where bits and bytes are the only deciding factor involved in
the wheels of justice. no need for a court of law, no need for a jury.
pure cold logic will decide who lives and who doesn't..

oh and faulty design along the way that gets incorporated into the end
product but doesn't get discovered until too late.

but then maybe nature herself will wipe us all out in a trice one day
because we humans think we are lord and mater over the very fabric if
life itself.
