Poems on the topic artificial intelligence written in the 1990s-2002:
Extreme Ultraviolet Rides the e-Beam
(copyright by Anne Hart)
Extreme ultraviolet rides the e-beam.
Suspending ranks of molecules between electrodes,
She lets quantum particles compute in multiverses.
She teleports matter, unleashing IBM on quantum mirages.
And Lucent works e-beams on code-name Scalpel.
Intel, AMD, and Motorola, and every other CPU maker,
Joins the parade of purses marching to EUV.
It's the end of the Silicon Cycle. Long live the smallest package.
Spin-up and Spin-down as the binary 0 and 1.
Quantum particles live in two places at once,
So my job as a retiree is to determine a value.
Wow! I am needed again after old age to decide
Which super-positioned state begets the logic.
What fun it is to be more than a molecular-scaled granny
With an MA in English and a shelf of unpublished novels.
