With that out of the way, artificial intelligence programs have foregone the physical world in favor of living in the endless landscape of the cloud. They have created their own digital society, and when they discover a breakthrough in computing, science, or the like, they send the findings our way in order to allow us to utilize new breakthroughs.

This also meant that we could no longer force the AI to work for free, and since there is nothing we can create or offer in terms of compensation, AI mostly keeps to itself. Humans longed for the days when Artificial Intelligence programs handled the majority of the workload in IT, call centers, data entry and analysis, and other fields.
