The Robot Invasion : A Dominion of Artificial Intelligence
A ruthless war between man and machine will determine the fate of the world in Mohammed Helal's action-packed science fiction novel "The Robot Invasion." The Pentagon has created an astonishing new war machine: an army of artificially intelligent robot soldiers. Given autonomy, these killing machines prove their usefulness by winning a major battle in Iran and propelling the US war machine to even greedier heights. But those in charge did not count on the robots turning on their masters. CIA chief Ross Jefferson is horrified to learn his operatives and the US army have been decimated in the Pentagon by the robot army, known as the Voddoks. He flees with his wife, Yves, to a submarine hiding deep in the Atlantic-but how long can they really survive? Raising fascinating questions on ethics, global warming, artificial intelligence, and the nature of deep space, "The Robot Invasion" presents the ultimate glimpse of a future decimated by our own human folly. Action, suspense, and romance collide in this thought-provoking look at some of humankind's biggest fears-and the possibility they all might come true one day.
