What is this, bait? :^)

I can, in no way, make any sort of statement regarding this topic
that doesn't solely refer to what is in the public record. So I'll
just mention that if you re-watch Star Wars (Episode IV, 1977),
listen for the part about the "Clone Wars" in Obiwan's dialogue with
Luke on Tatooine.

Speaking personally, and only of movies which have been released, I
haven't seen much that interests me on the topic AI in the Star Wars
universe. But that's all I'll really say, which is next to nothing
anyway. Am I really still at work? zzzzzzzt!
