Artificial Intelligence

Consider this to be the sound track for a short story on the development of Artificial Intelligence.
I don’t know how close science is to achieving the goal of a thinking computer, but the speed at which computers can execute instructions is beginning to simulate independent thought. They appear to be making their own decisions.
Thinking machines go back to the Greek myths, and while today’s advancements are astonishing, unbeatable chess programs and self-driving cars are still a long way from HAL9000, Blade Runner’s Replicants or Ex Machina’s Ava.

This is my vision of the journey through this technology’s conflicts and surprises, ending with a self-aware computer voice asking the most important question of all.
