Product Description

Эта история происходит в будущем, когда роботы успели прочно войти в повседневную жизнь. В автокатастрофе при столкновении с беспилотной фурой погибает друг Ника, психолога и специалиста по использованию роботов. На Ника падает подозрение в убийстве, но следствие заходит в тупик. Тем временем Ник встречает Лайзу и начинает работать над созданием андроида, неотличимого от человека. Главный герой не знает, что он сам становится частью блестящего эксперимента...
В романе есть и детективная линия, и любовь, а также разочарования, потери и победы. На страницах книги автор рассуждает о создании дружественного искусственного интеллекта – роботов, которые никогда не будут врагами человека. А риск такой есть...

In the future, when robots have already fully permeated our everyday life, a devastating automobile accident with an unmanned drone big rig kills Nick's friend. The suspicion of murder falls on Nick, a psychologist who specializes in robots, but the investigation reaches a dead end. At the same time, Nick meets Liza, and begins work on an android that will be indistinguishable from a human.
But Nick doesn't realize that he is now part of a brilliant experiment. This audiobook has mystery, love, disillusionment, loss, and victory.
The author discusses creation of friendly artificial intelligence: robots who will never be enemies of man. Yet this risk exists...
