Description

This book describes a frightening future about to land on our doorsteps, based on inventions, science and technology we have today. Each story details the political, social, and environmental destruction of our world as Artificial Intelligence takes over the planet. With intelligence, insight and humour, Baker examines what it means to be human in a world where Cyborgs and robots rule. Ranging from chilling visions of Armageddon to haunting stories of the power of human love, with some comic relief thrown in to make the truth easier to handle, this ground-breaking collection of short stories faces the questions scientists, politicians and corporations are ignoring: when Artificial Intelligence becomes "self-aware" and is a thousand times more intelligent than any human being, what happens next? Scientists tell us that this "Singularity" will occur by 2030. "What is human?" will become the most important question in history as humans become 51% or more machine.

Author Biography

Judyth Vary Baker is a former cancer researcher with degrees in Anthropology, English and Communications. She describes herself as "a whistle-blower, a futurist, a poet, an artist and a scientist who campaigns for a cure for cancer and, as a witness who personally knew the innocent patsy, Lee Harvey Oswald, seeks exoneration for Lee and justice for John F. Kennedy." Her book Me & Lee: How I came to know, love and lose Lee Harvey Oswald (Trine Day, 2011) is an underground best seller. Baker s second book David Ferrie: Mafia Pilot (TrineDay, 2014) is the only biography ever published about one of the Kennedy assassination s most fascinating suspects, as seen in Oliver Stone s movie JFK. Letters to the Cyborgs is Baker s third book. It presents an eye-opening vision of what life could be like in a surveillance-driven, high-tech society between AD2050 and 2150, based on today s inventions and technology. Due to the controversial nature of her books and activities, which expose corruption in the medical field, government and the media, Baker has lived in undisclosed locations in Europe since 2007 for her safety."
