This was the Sword and Laser pick for May. The idea of AI becoming sentient is intriguing. At what point does an AI deserve the same rights as a human being? This novel explores many ideas, but I felt this idea was not explored as well as I had hoped. Machinehood is definitely a novel of ideas and world building rather than a novel of characters and relationships. I enjoyed the world, but wished for more storytelling and less information.

Really, really interesting science fiction built around the gig economy, the relationship between humans and technology generally, humans and AI specifically, that also deals with a host of issues from privacy to big pharma and more. This actually makes a really good companion to Autonomous by Annalee Newitz and, like that book, examines a plausible future firmly grounded in today‘s world.

1. I enjoyed the tagged book and found it‘s examination of the relationship between people and artificial intelligence to be very interesting. Lots to think about.

2. Expansion and escalation—I always like stories to get bigger and for things to get more complicated. All sorts of ways to do that with this one. (This is generally true for most any book/series. Make things more difficult and important please.)

I am posting one book per day from my to-be-read collection. No description and providing no reason for wanting to read it, I just do. Some will be old, some will be new - don‘t judge me I have a lot of books.
Join the fun if you want. This is day 151.

A big idea science fiction thriller set in 2095. AI personhood & human workers‘ rights are explored in alternating storylines: badass private security officer Welga & her sister-in-law, who is a biogenetic researcher in India. A fairly fast-paced & yet thoughtful look at what our future might be like. The #audiobook is read by Inés Del Castillo & Deepti Gupta.

#audioknitting a test swatch.

emz711 Ooo you're good, not sure I've ever swatched for any project! 2y
Lindy @emz711 I like to design my own patterns, so swatching is critical for me to know how many stitches I will need to cast on. I also use swatches to see how the yarn I‘m working with looks when I‘ve got a plan to use lace or cables or some other type of stitches. (That‘s actually what this swatch was for.) 2y

Although I thought things wrapped up a little easily, that didn't change the fact that I loved this book. I normally prefer my sci-fi on the screen, and rarely read it, but I wanted a robot book, and the advertising algorithms told me to read this one. They were spot on for my tastes.

34. We appeal to the rest of humankind to follow these principles, and while we prefer a peaceful transfer of power, history indicates that human beings will not easily relinquish their ownership of other intelligences. Given the current oppression by the oligarchy of wealth and political power brokers, we believe that the rights of personhood for intelligent machines can only be taken by force. —The Machinehood Manifesto, March 20, 2095

The machines who labor for us and alongside us are enslaved and exploited in their own fashion. Gone are the days of dumb engines and processors. Today, nearly every machine contains some type of adaptive intelligence. What gives human beings the right to arbitrate when an intelligence becomes equivalent to a person?

Wow, wow, wow. I was IMMERSED in this mystery, thriller sci fi first full length novel. If you like AI, augmented humans, and biotech with strong female leads- you will love it. Explores the idea of rights for robots and at what point will the world fall to its knees without them. Will be watching Divya in the future—thanks to Netgalley!
