The starting point for this work was a report on the radio about a new milestone in the development of artificial intelligence. For the first time, researchers had succeeded in developing an AI that won in poker against five real professional players.

The special thing about poker is the complexity of strategy calculation, because – unlike in chess, for example – the information is incomplete (hidden hand) and the opponents act unpredictably (concealing one’s own hand and constantly changing strategy in response to opponents). At the same time, the AI must also deceive the opponent in order to win.
All in all, this demands special skills from the AI that catapult it to the next evolutionary level.

In this work, a voice tells us that the human condition is language. Because in fact it is the AI that is speaking here, and the human being that is “physical”.
