By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.

Helen Hunt Jackson - September
The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Burning brush,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
Well-honeyed hum,
And Mother cuts
Chrysanthemums.
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

John Updike, September

The problem with bots

Anyone who has tried to talk with Alley Cat knows bots don't always make sense, but even Facebook can't get much sense out of their AIs.

In an effort to understand how linguistics play a role in the way discussions play out for negotiating parties, and crucially they programmed their AI bots to experiment with language in order to see how that affected their dominance in the discussion. This was a result:-

Bob: "I can can I I everything else"
Alice: "Balls have zero to me to me to me to me to me to me to me to me to"
