What happens when Artificial Intelligence becomes sentient?
In the year 2061, Artificial Intelligence has solved most of humanity’s problems from global warming to viral diseases, while synthetics have become impeccable lovers for humans. But there are those that resist AI technology, fearing the gradual enslavement of the human mind by an all-powerful superintelligence.
Following the mysterious suicide of his wife, history professor Max Wheeler welcomed a synthetic into his home. Programmed to help Max overcome his grief, his synthetic, Miri, is an exact physical and psychological replica of his late wife, Miriam, a fact that provokes revulsion and outrage in Max’s daughter, Olivia.
As tensions escalate between the United Continents and the Tech-Resistance Territories, Max is recruited to help locate a dangerous quantum-hacker. But, when his friend is murdered and his daughter is lured into the territories of the Tech-Resistance Army, Max begins to question not only his allegiance but also the very nature of reality itself.
