Star Trek Picard spoilers
Ok. Watched Star Trek: Picard last night. The trope that we’ve created synthetic life forms that are indistinguishable from humans is overplayed at this point. Blade runner. Battlestar Galactica. The Matrix. I am forgetting some too.
And when exactly were these supposed to have been developed? At the end of Insurrection it wasn’t possible or even close. But decades before “now” they mastered it and had a rebellion and in the meantime some scientist made human ones.

The Milan scrape was only notable because they made their findings public.
If a university scraping feeds did it, it's safe to assume other, bigger organizations have been doing it for much longer.
