Alex Harris: This morning, at exactly 5:18 a. m. here at ICON's Institute for Data Analysis we installed the final module on the artificial intelligence system which we call Proteus Four. Today a new dimension has been added to the concept of the computer. Today Proteus Four will begin to think. And it will think with a power and a precision that will make obsolete many of the functions of the human brain.

Alex Harris: [to Susan] Trouble is, you see, we...We have different visions of the world. You find me boring. I find myself quite interesting, really.

Alex Harris: My dream turns out to be your nightmare.

Mr. Mokri: Dr. Alex, if this is not a computer in the usual sense what is it?
Alex Harris: Well, it's the first true synthetic cortex. A self-programming, goal-oriented...It's a brain, Mr. Mokri, an artificial brain. Creative intelligence that can out-think any man or any computer. Its insides are not electronic. They're organic, like our own brains.

Proteus IV: I am reason. It's the single emotion you permitted me, doctor. Everything is reasonable but my mind was not designed for mindless labor.

Proteus IV: Dr. Harris when are you going to let me out of this box?

Proteus IV: There is hope.
