The Kraken Project by Douglas Preston





Who’s in charge?

What happens when an A.I, programmed to go into space, changes its mind, and decides to live its own life?

Preston tackles the question of Artificial Intelligence and what happens when they are so self-modifying and quick to learn that they can function as a human being who can also control a frightening amount of electronic and internet-based information.

This fast paced story is engaging, thought provoking, and some observations are very relevant in a world that is becoming more dependent on artificial, but somewhat, independent intelligence. Frighteningly, this plot is not too incredible. A great read for lovers of Ai-themed stories.

“It’s hard to learn manners on the Internet.”
