[An approximate translation]

Si
Hello, cousin. What have you been doing?

Ki
I’m making transcription algorithms for Blue Star’s languages. It’s frustrating. There is too much to do. Have you finished your project?

Gi
Yes, and we show it to mother and father, soon. It needs more information, but we are finished.

Si
But we are sure that mother and father will help us.

Gi
Who is this?

Ki
She is Blue Star child, appellation Sami.

Gi
Did you really find a way to talk directly to Blue Star people? This is exciting! I want to know if they are like us.

Si
Are you making your software for her? She’s beautiful. How do you know her?

Ki
I wanted very easy vocabulary for my software. Blue Star’s children have somewhat primitive language and cognitive output. I noticed that some Blue Star children had large data spikes consistently over five revolutions. I analysed those, and I noticed that hers was the largest.

Si
What’s that?!

Ki
It’s a child.

Si
What species?

Ki
Human. Some human babies are born looking, unfortunately, less like the attractive parent. They do not control for this with reproductive algorithms.

Gi
Does Blue Star Child Sami know you?

Ki
Not yet. That is why I am creating this translator. This software’s algorithms are simplistic. This software allows people to communicate through a third party translator that knows both languages. What I want to do is append the simple software to this updated software I’m creating. I used father’s magnetic resonance codes for the tractor beams. I stripped the power annotations down to the smallest resolution. After that, I coded data filtration algorithms at these nodes, here. What I have now, if it works, is data extraction software that works in reverse to push information to the receiver.

Si
That is very impressive. But you are too far away to push a lot of information to language centres in her cerebral cortex or vision centres in her visual cortex.

Ki
According to this, I need to be at least [four thousand three hundred forty four] long distance units directly above her coordinates to focus a [laser]. Additionally, proximity is a problem, as other bioorganisms can interfere with the transmission frequency.

Gi
It is an interesting problem. Perhaps if you used three dimensional graphics software to create a full layout of her cortices and focused a stream of magnetic resonance to all points? Once you have traction, you can pull or push data as required. We created an application for this purpose with our extrasolar technology, to make the hardware “behave” as if it could see or feel itself moving over rough terrain or in water.

Ki
Thank you, cousin. That is brilliant. You are a marvel.

Gi
How much more time do you have for fixing your software?

Ki
I was about to give up at the moment, but the AI is peeling down the coded layers here and here. I think there are some overlaps. So I need to wait and then I will see how much more work there is to be done.

Si
I want to help, too. What can I do?

Ki
Thank you, cousins. There is a language on Blue Star that has the same sounds as ours. It is [Icelandic]. In order to use it to communicate smoothly through her handheld voice transcription device, I will create a dictionary of words that are represented by large chunks of image data in all languages. I already dug up an old dictionary from Grandfather’s data library. But, Blue Star’s language changes at a high rate. I need to update it. That way, we will know what words are common to all languages and what they mean. It is tiresome, as not all words have visual indicators. Some have emotional representations.

Gi
I can do that, also. I spent one revolution analysing image data from Blue Star’s storage orbiters. Let me teleport our AIs here. They have the analytical protocols we utilised. We can retask their protocols to compile your dictionary in a fraction of the time.

Si
That is a brilliant idea. We are going to help you by syncing all three AIs to complement each other’s coding, in order to complete the translation algorithm. All we need do now, is watch them work and check the results.

Ki
Cousins, you are precious to me.

Gi
With pleasure, dear cousin.
