Well, yeah. Only a sociopath would store eggs like that, and the AI knows it.

Scientists claim big advance in using DNA to store data | BBC

From the linkDNA data storage won't initially replace server farms for information that must be accessed quickly and often. Because of the time required for reading the sequence, the technique would be most useful for information that must be kept available for a long time, but accessed infrequently.

This type of data is currently stored on magnetic tapes which should be replaced around every 10 years.

With DNA, however, "as long as you keep the temperature low enough, the data will survive for thousands of years, so the cost of ownership drops to almost zero", Dr Guise explained.

Not bits and peecees related, but on the set of Black Panther, they referred to Andy Serkis and Martin Freeman as the Tolkien white guys. Love that pun. :giggles:
