It's kinda interesting tho, I'm not sure Adams was aware of the phenomena whein made the 42; with AI we put the question and get the answer, no clue about the process or rationale behind it; we'll know the answers not knowing why, historically the usual process was scientists discovered something and engineers behind looked for uses; that will probably invert in the future, engineers with AI will get answers and scientists behind will try to understand why did it work, like archeology. God indeed will work in misterious ways. And could it be a de-facto god if we made it? what would make us?, and to be this kind of all (or almost) know all "god" the AI needs to have what we see as concience? have to even pass the Turing test? could it be a dumb god? that knows everything but itself?...

... ok, that was way to much coffee for me, I'm gonna take a cold shower now.

I think it is already happening, one of my professor who has CS and Math background is working on explaining the deep learning network with Optimal Mass Transportation Theory, Convex Geometry and Monge-Ampere Equation.

Besides that, interesting thoughts 🤔
