HaringAi learns about vacuum cleaners
Third in a set of five photos about the rapid evolution
Report-a-Problem online e-form.
Back in April 2008, I felt I'd begun to make friends with HaringAi.
Spotting this dumped vacuum cleaner I supplied my electronic chum with a street-name and a real house number. But like a small child, it kept asking for more information.
Realising its database was then at an early stage, I typed into the Council's webform:
"A vacuum cleaner is a domestic cleaning machine which uses suction to remove unwanted matter - for example, crumbs, dust, cat hairs etc - from household objects like furniture; and surfaces such as carpets and other flooring. This model - dumped on the pavement in Carew Road - can be easily spotted by its shiny cherry-red colour."
