Somewhere around the middle of this century, artificial intelligence will evolve beyond its human architects, vastly superior in every way. Technology will become independent of us, rapidly evolving beyond our wildest dreams… or nightmares.
This science fiction anthology that is set over the fifty years leading to the Singularity explores this idea.
We’re nearly at 2020. Artificial Intelligence is marketed to us on our phones, in kitchen appliances, cars and sex toys. Algorithmic AIs have written short films, they control modern dating life, they can instantly translate spoken languages.
Nowadays they have names, answer questions with sass, but how intelligent are they really? Our home assistants still pull data from human generated websites. Comprehension of questions is passable, but parsing meaning still evades most of them.
