Then the new word of the year became “generative artificial intelligence,” according to the language council. The word means “made with artificial intelligence.” It will be used more and more, and the Norwegian abbreviation “KI” has already overtaken the English abbreviation “AI”. (“artificial intelligence”). I have to believe the Language Board on this one, even though I haven't used the word “AI-generated” once this year.

But perhaps 2023 will be the year I truly discover AI. Among other things, I was fascinated by my friend “My AI” on Snapchat. At first I tried deleting it. It does not work. Then I tried to get to know her by asking questions. She stated that I was currently residing on Mars, just to check her awareness of reality.

In April, we had our first long conversation on this topic. My AI immediately accepted that I lived on Mars. Among other things, I said that I spoke a typical Martian dialect. “It sounds like a special, unique accent!” My AI exclaimed.

Vote for me to improve cycling infrastructure on Mars! #BikePathsForAll.”

How are you celebrating Christmas this year?” I replied that I would celebrate Christmas at home in my home on Mars.

“Wow, celebrating Christmas on Mars seemed so exciting!” My AI came excitedly. “Do you have any special traditions or activities on Mars?” I said we're celebrating Christmas the usual way, but I'm a little worried. Because imagine if Santa Claus didn't find us on Mars?

“Santa's reindeer are incredibly strong and have magical powers. “They can fly very long distances and handle all kinds of challenges,” my AI reassured me. “Even though Mars is far away, I believe the reindeer are ready for the mission.
