Nine Billion Names of God

The Nine Billion Names of God

The nine billion names of god is program or bot that searches and downloads porn files on the internet. The program is 'trained' to find instances of orgasms within the porn clip where the word 'God' is uttered. It uses the tropes of artificial intelligence and machine learning to  piece together a downloadable .mp3 file. 

The program uploads a new mp3 file evey sunday after  collecting it for a week. It will stop once it collects 9  billion cries for God.

1. In case the machines take over and become sentient,  their future leisure activity might include surfing for  porn and maybe even some sort of spiritual pursuit as well.

2. Mindgeek, one of the biggest service providers for porn had 80 billion video viewings last year, and  more than 18 billion visits. In terms of traffic and bandwidth, Mindgeek is now one of the world’s biggest  online operators in any industry. The company saysits  sites serve more than 100m visitors a day,
consuming 1.5 terabits of data per second— enough to  download 150 feature films.

3. In Arthur C. Clarke's short story,'the nine billion names of god', the world comes to an end when all the nine  billion names of God are compiled. This is as short story  about a Tibetan monastary whose monks seek to list all of the names of God. They believe the Universe was created for this purpose, and that once this naming is completed, God will bring the Universe to an end. Three centuries ago, the monks created an alphabet through which they calculated they could encode all the possible names of God, numbering about 9,000,000,000 ("nine  billion") and each having no more than nine characters. Writing the names out  by hand would take another 15,000 years; the monks wish to  use modern technology to finish this task more quickly.

Nine billion names of god compiles these orgiastic longings and prayers and encodes them into an ubiqioutous, downloadable  .mp3  file.
