A New Digital Brain!

I have always had this dream. Ever since I read an Isaac Asimov robot story, I’ve always wanted a robot friend of my own. My favorite character is HAL 9000 in 2010: Space Odyssey.

The scene at the end of War Games is gripping, Centennial Man is awe-inspiring, and AI is awesome. However, that fascination has never quite spilled into my normal life as I was always too focused on programming and making games.
