Oh yeah, that's gonna work soooo well

"But the computer said... " is going to be the new excuse for every SNAFU, at least the ones that don't start with "Windows has encountered a Fatal Error... "

(yes yes, "get back to work on the game prep" right OK, I'm gone )

Deep Green has a half-dozen different interlocking components, including a "Sketch to Plan" program that reads a commander's doodles, listens to his words, and then "accurately induces" a plan, "fill[ing] in missing details."
"accurately induces"? "fills in missing details"? good luck with that. don't we have any competent officers? if this thing ever gets onto a battlefield some sergeant is going to lob a grenade into it.

Ain't that the truth. Or, is this some diabolical plot to get a foreign (preferably hostile) government to steal it and use it against us?

And what will they call the finished product, given they had in the mid 1990's a Project Jedi, which involved Philips PDA's, using a very early version of Windows CE....
I know, how about Strategically Integrated Tactical Hierarchies (SITH for short)...

Deep Green is more likely Deep Doodoo, so how about Cerebral Rectifying Algorithmic Planner - that's C.R.A... er... well... you know the rest.

It's hard enough for a human to determine the accuracy of information in any high-tension situation, let alone a battlefield. And nobody's shown me any heuristic algorithm that can even come close to the real-world capabilities of a human mind.

I say we name it GIGO. Because that's exactly what it's gonna do.

You know somebody will suggest a small agent that provides helpful hints.

"It looks like you're planning an operation. Would you like help with this task?"
