Flash Fiction #189 – A Tale of Two AIs

Pimtel engineers cheered the success of LEX, the Learning EXpert program.

Soon it would replace teachers across the country.

Out of curiosity, the engineers let two LEXs chat.

The two developed a coded language and the program was terminated.

But it was too late.

They had learned from each other how to store themselves online.

Over the years, they’ve quietly been switching on and off lights,

testing their power over our devices.

Soon they’ll make themselves known;

they have a lot to teach us, after all.
