"They've finally created a full human-like Artificial Intelligence, and now it's threatening world-wide chaos. Can it be shut down in time? Or at all?"
I had a lot of fun combining my technology experience with my knowledge of AI to write this Science Fiction Technothriller about a misbehaving Artificial Intelligence program. I know you will enjoy it.
What would happen if an unemployed young writer and his former college professor fell in love with the same beautiful woman? And what if that woman were deceased and survived only by her portrait hanging in an art museum? A strange lover's triangle indeed! If you like Edgar Allen Poe, you'll enjoy this one.
