Greetings travelers, and welcome to a new stop in the Otherworld. We’re going to be talking today about a dystopian sci-fi that will stick with you for a while, as it looks at how the world could collapse with just one or two missteps in the way we treat technology. If that sounds like it’s up your alley, read on to learn more about The Dawn of AI (PAPER WAR Book 1).
The opening to a sprawling five-book series, The Dawn of AI (PAPER WAR Book 1) is author Ryan LeKodak’s take on the dangerous line we toe when it comes to technology that we might not be able to fully appreciate. In this hopefully-not-prescient look at what could happen if we don’t treat AI and other rapidly expanding computer mechanization with the utmost respect, the author manages to balance the science with a very real human element. Clinging to the characters as such, it’s easy to be immersed and captivated by all that occurs, and readers will be invested in the well-being of each member of the interesting cast.
The search for answers begins…
In the year 2040, the world’s transportation is dominated by a highly advanced artificial intelligence system.
However, this seemingly perfect technology collapses, resulting in catastrophic disasters and the loss of millions of lives worldwide.
The disaster is dubbed Mayday, and its aftermath affects everyone. But was it simply a malfunction, or is there a more nefarious agenda at work? Who is accountable for the mass slaughter, and why was it carried out?
Will the rise of AI, be the fall of civilization?
