2036 (Part One)

by Martin Chu Shui on 2018-12-20

In 2036, True Artificial Intelligence Bots (Taibots) live in our society and form relationships with humans; they behave like humans in every aspect. Olivia doesn’t believe true artificial consciousness is possible, but things get complicated after Toby enters her life. Despite the fact that he seems like a Taibot, Olivia is certain Toby has human consciousness.

On the brink of the sixth mass extinction, resulting from anthropogenic climate change, could artificial consciousness be the answer to preserving human consciousness—the apex of 4.5 billion years of evolution—in a universe without humans? Will Olivia be able to find out why Toby so resembles her boyfriend who died five years earlier? How will the world deal with the imminent global wipe-out?
