Redux: Tortoises

The originals:

    Isabel – If an extinct species of Galapagos tortoise is ever recovered, do you think it will also inhabit Jurassic Park?

    On another note, once the world is run by artificial intelligence as posited by Stephen Hawking, do you think AI will care about organic species, either living or extinct?

      John – I wouldn’t even hazard a guess about an AI future. Sort of glad I won’t see it, though . . .
