Admittedly it's been a few months since I read that Vonnegut but I don't recall Ritz and Easy Cheese being in there.

Probably because they weren't. It's not you, it's everything else.

The singularity is probably coming soon, yeah. And when it comes, let’s just hope it isn’t an AI literally designed to defeat humans.

Man, one of these days I’ll learn how to play chess.

Not that much. Computers are very good at chess.
Conserative Morality wrote:"It's not time yet" is a tactic used by reactionaries in every era. "It's not time for democracy, it's not time for capitalism, it's not time for emancipation." Of course it's not time. It's never time, not on its own. You make it time. If you're under fire in the no-man's land of WW1, you start digging a foxhole even if the ideal time would be when you *aren't* being bombarded, because once you wait for it to be 'time', other situations will need your attention, assuming you survive that long. If the fields aren't furrowed, plow them. If the iron is not hot, make it so. If society is not ready, change it.

It's not even so much that they are supposed to be strong: computers are just good at chess by default. In fact, on easier settings in chess games the ai is actually deliberately hindered so that they occasionally make stupid mistakes.

Wait so is the AI unbeatable?

Or is there a trick (like a special opening/pattern) I can use to win?
