yes that is quite true


I made this recently according to wiki

Make a pot and vegetables elves drop in from about three levels up. This makes it so the vegetables get overcooked do not run . Proceed to bask the vegetables in steam.

Making this next:

Basically, a dwarf in a bunker that controls your fortress. Being that there are no supercomputers in DF at the moment, we'll have to use the closest substitute, a dwarf. Seal your dwarf in a room full of levers that activate various floodgates, bridges, doors, hatch covers, traps, etc. Make sure this room has no exits or entrances, but it needs a luxurious bedroom and dining area, and you must include a chute for dropping in food biomass and alcohol coolant fluid. Profile the levers so that they can only be used by the A.I. dwarf.
It would be a good idea to make the system into two rooms. The food/drink/bed room and the lever room. Should you need to add more levers, you can lock the A.I. dwarf outside the lever room and have your mechanics set up more levers without interacting with or releasing the A.I.
You can make the lodging room suited for the particular dwarf by adding furniture made from their favorite materials, and smoothing and engraving everything. Use quantum stockpiling to give them 10+ years of food and drink. Make sure the A.I. is unable to communicate with other dwarves. His/her mood must not be affected by the deaths of the walking meat-bags who tried to befriend him/her.
In order to ensure that your A.I. doesn't find sleep interfering with crucial lever pulling, you might consider incorporating an alarm clock. If a goblin siege turns up on your doorstep, a single external lever to dump 7/7 of water on the sleeping A.I. might well save your fortress (and is so much cooler than having backup levers in your meeting hall).
You must also make a snazzy/lame acronym name for your AI, here are some examples:
A.R.M.O.K. - All-Reaching Machine Of Killing
A.S.S. - Almost-autonomous Systems Selector
C.A.T. - Creepy Autonomous Technology
D.E.E.P.E.R. - Dwarf of Engineering the Eldritch and Practical Exploitation of Resources
D.I.E.D. - Dedicated Irrigation and Everything else Dwarf(s)
D.O.M.E.S. - Dwarf Operated Mechanics and Engineering System
D.O.R.F. - Does Orders Rather Fast
D.O.S. - Dwarf Operating System
D.W.A.R.F. - Drains Water And Recruits Farmers
G.L.A.D.O.S. - Genetic Lifeform And Dwarf Operating System
H.A.L. - Hairy Alternate Lifeform
M.A.G.M.A. - Massively Alcoholic Gear-Machine Assembly
N.O.B.L.E. - Narcissistic Obnoxious Boastful Laughable Excrement
P.O.T.A.T.O. - Possibly Organic Technically Alive Trash Omitted
U.R.I.S.T. - Underground Reasonably Intelligent Settlement Technologist
V.A.C.A.T.E.D. - Vampire Assisted Computerized Assembly Terrorizes Extra-Dwarves
V.O.D.A.P.H.O.N.E. - Vampire Operated Defence Apparatus, Perpetrating Harm Of Nefarious Entities (See Bonus for more information)
Difficulty: Medium. Setting up all the levers and lodgings can be a micromanagement hassle. Further research is required as to how well the A.I. will fit into a dwarven economy.
Usefulness: High. Having a dwarf dedicated to pulling levers will ensure that they are pulled on time. Additionally, you will have a constantly-ecstatic dwarf who is virtually invulnerable to all threats. Should your fortress be slaughtered by invaders or drowned by flooding or tantrum spiraled, your fortress will be preserved until more migrants arrive, or the AI runs out of food.
Bonus: Make the A.I. dwarf a vampire. Vampires don't need food, alcohol, or sleep and cannot age, which makes them perfect for the job. As an added bonus, keeping a vampire in this way will make your fortress completely indestructible, as sealing him in will prevent the possibility of the vampire of being killed in combat or from a syndrome, while keeping the vampire from making friends he will inevitably outlive will prevent him from going insane. (It also ensures that the bloodsucker won't use any of your dwarves as a midnight snack.) NOTE: Vampires may still go insane without any blood. Might be worth considering adding on a 3rd "feeding chamber" where you assign an unfortunate victim to sleep whenever the vampire gets hungry.
