Cyber librarian

Cybrarian? Lyborg? Listen, you know how I feel about teaching thinking machines things that can be eventually used against us in the robot uprisings of the 2030s: negatively. So why are we replacing hot librarians in tight sweaters and horn-rimmed glasses with a simulated help assistant? I’m agin it. No good can come of this, I tell you.

And, as Scout is used by more people, it gets more intelligent. So far, the program is great at helping out patrons find out how to get a library card, what the branch hours are and can even guide folks through the process of streaming movies online.
