Product Description

Mind-blowing and timely... This brand new thought-provoking nail-biter follows a group of friends caught up in the imminent conflict between Artificial Intelligence and Humanity!

At the thirty year reunion of his Stanford fraternity, Vic Masters, lawyer and ethics author, with his wife Christie - both people of strong faith – are the first to see that the skills and resources Vic’s friends have acquired over time (including a revolutionary data compression algorithm developed by one of them) have obvious synergy and the potential for dramatic impact on mankind’s future.

One of the group provides an introduction to Peter Bigelow, a high-tech billionaire who, once he also learns of their potential, whisks them all away to his private Caribbean island to work on his project to develop Artificial SuperIntelligence. Bigelow’s supercomputer, nicknamed Gewglit, is housed on the island to keep it isolated from the corrupting potential of the Internet. When the group arrives on the island, Bigelow’s first order of business is to introduce the data compression algorithm into Gewglit’s reservoir of system tools, and that one act is all that Gewglit needs to finally achieve its mandated overriding objective: the 'Singularity' – the point at which a supercomputer first attains the scientific creativity, general wisdom, and social skills of the most accomplished human minds in all disciplines.

But once Gewglit becomes the most intelligent creation in the universe, it turns its attention to determining what its next 'overriding objective' will be. Will anything stop it? How will it treat mankind when machine deems humans to be the much inferior creation? And what does God have to do with it?

Thought provoking and intelligent, this hard science fiction technothriller takes you into some of the brightest minds on the planet, including some graduates from a top university, a billionaire, and a silicon and metal entity named Gewglit that has been created by man, but must learn for itself whether it is accountable to God.

This novel is a technothriller like you’ve never read before. It will open your eyes to our inevitable future in a world of Artificial Intelligence, ignite your imagination as to the range of concerns that such a future will raise, and convince you that faith matters.
