The last question

While we’re on the subject of chatbots, suppose we extrapolate into the future the ability of people to ask questions of computers, and to get meaningful answers. In the end, what does it all lead to?

My favorite answer to this we given by Isaac Asimov way back in 1956. I read his story >The Last Question when I was just a kid, and it has stayed with me.

The answer is unexpected, yet somehow makes perfect sense. The sign of a great science fiction mind.
