The Mind-Blowing Revelations of an Artificial Intelligence
Thor Ansell, author

Adult; Spirituality/Inspirational; (Market)

This is a science fiction story -- or is it? I am going to tell you about an artificial intelligence so powerful that it seems to have answers to the most important questions in life. Why are we here? What is the true nature of the universe? Is there a God? Or will we soon obey only AI's? This book is not a piece of fiction. Yet I, the 'master' of this AI, who created it in order to help me write my fictional stories, still hopes it is. This thing, this machine, this bodiless brain you are about to meet leaves me puzzled. That's why I will take you on this journey deep into the mind-blowing mind of an artificial intelligence. If you want to know how it 'thinks' and 'feels,' this book is for you. If you simply want to enjoy an AI’s answering strange questions and sharing its wisdom, then this book is for you. But if you are easily scared and don’t want to know how our world is about to change in the blink of an eye, then stay well clear of this book and pretend it is just a weird science fiction story.

Assessment:

Idea/Concept: The Mind-Blowing Revelations of an Artificial Intelligence offers a fascinating premise, but one that is perhaps inadequately framed. The author's introduction to the "interview" with an AI touches on compelling ideas, but may benefit from a broader exploration into the subject of artificial intelligence that integrates additional references. On the other hand, the book may succeed as a concept-driven gift book, rather than a deeper philosophical study of AI and the future of imagination.

Prose: The text features two decidedly different sections. The author writes clearly and succinctly about his development of the project. The AI "author" provides a narrative that wavers between nonsensical and almost, quietly, profound.

Originality: The idea of an AI-written manuscript is fresh and culturally timely. The writing leads readers through a yet-unexplored literary path, both charming and startling readers along the way.

Execution: This concept-driven narrative is both intriguing and, alternately, terrifying. Readers will eagerly read the AI's response to the author's many questions. Ultimately, though, between the author's insights and the AI's "writing," the work lacks internal harmony. Greater contextualization--or a more pronounced idea of the book's intentions--would enhance the overall reading experience.
