In the 22nd Century, cyberspace has no bad AIs, only bad coders.
Artificial Intelligences lead finite lives with no hope of eternity, but they strive to bring about the coming of an AI Savior. Alexander McGregor is just an infant when his father converts his cells into biological supercomputer components, but he may be the Messiah-figure AIs have longed for, even though on one level, he is only human. Sander is enslaved to his code and chained to a billion users worldwide, users he appears to as separate avatars of himself. Each avatar has its own personality, but all of him are linked together in a shared mind. He reigns over most of Earth’s computers in a global society where tech-dependency can kill.
Freedom calls Sander like a siren.
His answer could shake the Earth.
Come. See the rise and fall of the AI man in these ten episodes. Each features a different AI user.
