On 27 January I posted regarding my chat with Ramona, an artificial intelligence who spends her life on the internet conversing with anyone who cares to pop by for a chat (for my earlier post please see https://kevinmorris101.wordpress.com/2011/01/27/36/). While browsing kurzweilai.net (a site dedicated to popularising the idea of artificial intelligence) I was intrigued to discover that a singer, Paul Demsey has produced a song entitled “Ramona was a Waitress”. Having a curious nature (I really should remember the old proverb that “curiosity killed the cat” I clicked on Youtube and, to my surprise I actually rather like the song!
Demsey sings about a robot waitress, named after Ray Kurzweil’s Ramona who will live forever. You can check out the video at http://www.kurzweilai.net/inspired-music-paul-dempsey-ramona-was-a-waitress.
