Into the Looking Glass with Artificial Intelligence

Science Reality?

The dialogue surrounding artificial intelligence (AI) has often oscillated between utopian dreams and dystopian warnings. As an author involved in the exploration of technological impacts on humanity, I find myself continually drawn into a reflective journey—much like stepping through a looking glass—into the heart of what the expansion of artificial intelligence signifies for our collective future. I, like so many other, have more questions than answers.

The Series

Worlds Apart, and by extension, the Immortal Rising series, challenges us to question not only the limits of machine learning and algorithms but also the essence of consciousness and identity. This exploration is more than a speculative foray into the future; it’s an intimate dance with the present, where the seeds of tomorrow’s AI are already sprouting.

The conversations my characters engage in, the ethical dilemmas they face, and the cultures they must navigate are but potential reflections of our current trajectory with artificial intelligence. This isn’t about predicting the future with precision, but about understanding the paths we’re creating today. The stories I tell are invitations to ponder, debate, and even dream about how we shape technology and how technology shapes us.

Power & Ethics

Diving in, we confront not only the potential for groundbreaking innovation and the augmentation of our daily lives but also the profound ethical considerations that accompany such power. I also offer a look at those who cross ethical boundaries with the machines. What should those boundaries and limits be? How do we balance the boon of AI’s capabilities with the responsibility of ensuring it serves the greater good? Is that even possible? Who decides? In my work, I explore the nuances of this balance, engaging with the idea that AI, in its growth and learning, mirrors the complexities of human learning and development. And infancy is messy.

A Collective Journey

This exploration is not undertaken in isolation. It is a collective journey, a conversation between the writer, the reader, and the wider world. Each step revealing more about our desires, fears, and hopes for the future. It’s also a call to engage with our technological path in a way that is deeply human—curious, empathetic, and ethical. It is about envisioning a future where AI and humanity advance not in competition but in collaboration, recognizing the value and potential in each other.
