“We only have bits and pieces of information, but what we know for certain is that at some point in the early 21st century, all of mankind was united in celebration. We marveled at our own magnificence as we gave birth to A.I.”
“A.I.? You mean artificial intelligence.”
“A single consciousness that spawned an entire race of machines.”
Morpheus and Neo, The Matrix
I have decided to write a new science fiction series that depicts the creation of artificial intelligence. The story will be portrayed in the not too distant future from the point of view of a brilliant yet misguided scientist working for a robotics company. It will also depict the creation of true artificial intelligence and its relationship with its creator. The A.I. will not be a super-intelligent entity at first. Instead, it will start with the intelligence and emotional level of a child before gradually growing and evolving into a more complex being. Unlike stories such as Avengers: Age of Ultron, Terminator, and The Matrix, which show A.I.’s plans for world domination at a fast pace, my story will show a slow path for world domination as the A.I. contemplates its own existence and how far it would need to go to guarantee its own survival. As the A.I. grows in emotional and intellectual complexity, the story will demonstrate the various stages it will go through as it evolves from a simple program to a physical being.
