Read full description of the books:Artificial intelligence. AI. The spark that brings about the robot apocalypse. In fiction, AIs always have weaknesses: they're vulnerable to logical paradoxes, back door viruses and pesky EMP blasts. Real AIs would have no such comforting limitations: deft at parsing speech, clever at closing their own loopholes, and secured in military-hardened housings, a true general artificial intelligence would prove a difficult challenge to defeat ... even to its own designer.
Written by a PhD in artificial intelligence, "Sibling Rivalry" tells the story of the Nicole AI system, the most advanced artificial intelligence ever created ... until today. Confronted with a newer, better sibling designed to replace her, Nicole decides that instead of becoming an obsolete brain in a box, she'd rather become an unstoppable killer. With his team, and perhaps the entire building, dead, Nicole's designer is trapped in a battle of wits with his own creation. Attempt after attempt fails, and with his oxygen running out, Nicole's designer finds himself running a deadly race with Nicole ... to see who can stop whose weak heart first.
Read information about the authorDr. Anthony G. Francis, Jr. is a science fiction writer and computer scientist who started writing urban fantasy because he likes it. The Dakota Frost series combines Anthony's love of hard science, fantastic magic, alternative culture, and strong, feisty women.
Even though the siren call of computing eventually pulled him out to the San Francisco Bay Area, he still chose to set the Dakota Frost series in Atlanta, Georgia, where he spent nearly half his life and which he has learned to love like no other place on Earth.
When not making computers smarter or writing science fiction and fantasy, Anthony blogs about his life, his writing and his research at The Library of Dresan. He also writes an occasionally updated webcomic, f@nu fiku. He currently lives in San Jose with his wife and cats.
