The frame of the comic copies Google's reCAPTCHA. The prompt says, “Select all squares with bicycles. If there are none, click skip.” Next to a car and slice of pie, the caption reads “This is a self-driving automobile. With state of the art computer vision, the car drives! You may eat pie!” The car drives between two cyclists and a grand piano falls from the sky. The car must swerve. The caption reads, “Objective: dodge piano. Options: swerve left into the cyclist with the helmet or swerve right into the cyclist without the helmet. Considerations: the helmeted cyclist has better survival odds, but hitting her punishes preparedness and anyway what should be used from split second vision?” In the final panel, a computer programmer slumps over a laptop and thinks, “I am not a robot.”
