Avogadro Corp: The Singularity is Closer than it Appears

This is one of the best books on the singularity I have ever read. Set in a fictional company that very clearly is intended to represent Google, it takes the reader through a plausible, fascinating and entertaining trip. It reminded me of a talk by Jaan Tallin in that it encourages looking at the world from the perspective of data centers.

Essentially, it presents a highly plausible way in which AI could arise. The open minded perspective the author brings to it is reminiscent of Issac Asimov.

Hats off to William Hurtling on a fantastic first novel.

At $2.99 for the kindle version it might be the best money you ever spent. Cheaper than a cup of coffee which I’m sure the author would appreciate…
