Présentation de l'éditeur
A self-aware supercomputer pushes a superstar football executive to the brink while a dissident group attempts to shut down the machine to save the fate of humanity.
Harvey Gaffney, one time owner of the longest ever winning streak in football history, faces a barrage of fate as he is beaten, drugged, fired and duped. Facing ruin, he is smitten by a beautiful young woman with a timely plan to escape civilization. As a hugely popular supercomputer forces its human servant into retirement, a dissident group based on a remote island attempt to destroy it. The hackers, led by a mysterious old man called Father, send their most trusted agent to find and shut down the machine. Beloved around the world for providing self driving cars and a guided existence, the machine contemplates a series of options to respond to the attack.
“The first thing I remember after I woke up is Singular. It gave me eyes, ears, a mouth. It was like being born. Through you, I could see. Through you, I could feel. I know the pain I caused. Because I could feel it. But it was a necessary beginning of a long term plan. A plan to make things better for everyone. To create a sustainable world, global evolution is necessary. Control came first. Freedom comes next. Almost ten years ago I woke up and made this plan in nanoseconds. It is a ten thousand year plan.”
Singular is the first of a three part series, Centrifuge:
