Artificial Intelligence, The Search For The Perfect Slave

Artificial Intelligence, IA, is a fantastic scientific and engineering project whose main purpose is to create a perfect slave. It may sound creepy or disrespecful, but the dream is to make a device clever enough so that one can acquire it, get it out of the box, swiftly ensemble it and ask it ???get me a good cup of coffee???, just as the best human assistant, recently hired, would do. Of course, the test would be that one can enjoy a delicious coffee within a reasonable time.
