Can Machines Think? - 10/4/19

Today's puzzle takes us to North Carolina.  I've been amazed at how well my phone is able to suggest replies to my incoming e-mails.  It's obviously able to read the messages and offer a suitable short reply, like "Great!" or "Thanks!" or some such that I can click on and reply automatically.  When I compose messages, it's constantly looking ahead and offering suggestions for words it thinks I want to type.  But it makes me laugh when I sign my e-mails with my full name.  When I type out Jennifer it offers two suggestions for continuing other than my own last name:  "Lawrence" and "Lopez."  It does make you wonder, though:
