In the year 2053, the world still bears the scars of the A.I. cataclysm two decades prior. Earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes: environmental disasters unleashed by rogue algorithms claimed the lives of millions.
Now, the legislators, who believe themselves omniscient, are preparing once again to have A.I. take away the decision-making process from humans.
Rylan Hawke, ex-military, a man who lost his wife and children in the maelstrom – now drowns his pain in cheap whiskey. He must rise above his own malaise and stop a super computer named Genesis that has become sentient: able to perceive, experience, and have feelings or consciousness.
Rylan, once head of all Special Forces for the U.S., must draw on his skills as a leader to assemble a team of the best hackers and combat troops to fight against a computer that thinks a million times faster than a human. The prime directive of Genesis, as given by its creator, Elaine Beaumont, is to solve global warming in the simplest, most efficient way. But the sentient computer decides that way is to eliminate humankind.
“The A.I. Chronicles: rise of the machines,” transcends mere fiction. It is a cautionary tale, woven with gripping narrative and factual insights into the burgeoning world of artificial sentience. The narrative delves into the complexities of cutting-edge computer research and the global race to develop the first truly conscious machine, exposing the terrifying consequences such a feat could hold.
