The novel is set in 2021 and covers the aftermath of a nuclear conflict (World War Terminus) that forced Earth’s people to evacuate to Mars owing to radioactive dust that had engulfed the planet. The colonists on Mars are given human-like robot servants that are utilized for labor. However, when some of the android’s revolt and flee to Earth, they are pursued by Rick Deckard, an Earth bounty hunter. Because of the androids’ resemblance to humans, an empathy test called the Voigt-Kampff test is employed to separate them from humans (where humans can pass the test while androids cannot.) The test’s trustworthiness is called into doubt as the androids become increasingly lifelike, complicating Deckard’s bounty-hunting objective.

This is a recurrent topic in both novels and movies in this genre. Archos eventually infects other networks and machines until the formidable AI unleashes its most devastating attack: A full-fledged conflict between humans and machines.

By Louisa Hall

A book of Speak by Louisa Hall

Speak by Louisa Hall is story that shifts between the viewpoints of five persons (one of them is Alan Turing) in different historical periods; however, the characters are all linked in some manner. The tale looks at how each of them contributes to artificial intelligence in their own way, as well as the emergence and collapse of “baby bots.” One plot is around computer scientist Karl Dettman (based on real-life computer scientist Joseph Weizenbaum), who is working on an artificial intelligence chat software (named MARY) that his wife prefers to talk to over him. Another subplot introduces the reader to Stephen Chinn, the baby bots creator, who is currently imprisoned. However, Chinn ends up in prison as a result of the baby bots striking similarity to humans—young children began to prefer interacting with the baby bots over their classmates. A mystery disease is sparked when the baby bots are unexpectedly taken away from children.

Final Thoughts

Throughout history, artificial intelligence has been the stuff of wild fantasies and occasionally nightmares. We’ve gone a long way from Leonardo da Vinci’s 15th-century robot knight. Artificial intelligence has crept further into our reality and daily lives throughout the last century, and there is little question that we are entering a new era of intelligence.

Smart machines are either a cataclysmic danger to mankind or the route to a joyful, leisure-filled future, according to leading specialists in the area. Will robots take the majority of human jobs, resulting in extreme inequity, or will today’s filthy and monotonous occupations simply be replaced by new, better ones?

So the more you read the best novels for the AI fanatic, you will get vast knowledge on what the future of human civilization might become.
