Machine, Learning

For the past 25 years or so I’ve been a human learning to program computers.  It’s been my day job for much of that time. My night jobs have included writing fictions of various stripes.  I’m currently working on one about computers learning to program humans.
It’s a work in progress going on in Wattpad under the working title “Machine, Learning”,  and so far consists of log file entries. The computer is controlling a star seed spaceship carrying colonists to a distant planet decades away.  While the humans lie in stasis in capsules,  encased in a minty fresh goo, two programs,  a main and a backup operating system,  set
out to try and understand their cargo. It’s an adventure for them,  but also for me as i try to apply my experiences in learning about an alien form of being. It’s an experiment that could easily fall flat,  but then that’s true of all attempted art.
