It's an AI wonderland


It's that time of year, once again, when I take a traditional Christmas song or carol and create a fun technology-related version of it to share with all of you. This is the fourth year and the seventh song, so I hope you enjoy your holiday song for 2017:

AI Wonderland

Smart car bells ring,
Are your smart devices listening?
On the internet,
Machine learning is happening.
A beautiful sight,
when it all works we’re happy tonight
living in an AI wonderland ...

Gone away is the landline.
Here to stay is the new smart phone.
It delivers more than just love songs,
As we go along,
Living in an AI wonderland ...

In the factories, we can build a smart car
Then pretend it's a airplane,
It will say: Where do you wish to go?
We’ll say: On a trip
But you can do most of the
driving/flying when we're in town ...

Later on,
We’ll design more
As we dream up more devices
To work together connected by the IoT.
These are the plans that we’ll make
living in an AI wonderland ...

In our homes, we can upgrade to use smart devices,
which can make our lives more connected.
We’ll have lots of fun with our new devices
... Until the next upgrade comes along 😉

When IT all works,
Ain't it thrilling?
Though no one can ever get the printer to work,
We'll frolic and play,
In the big data way,
Living in an AI wonderland ...

Living in an AI wonderland ...
Living in an AI wonderland ...

I hope you enjoyed this year's song -- safe travels and happy holidays to all!
