A.I. Insurrection is a fast paced novel dealing with the real idea of living among artificial intelligence one hundred fifty years into our future. Set in the year 2162, the underlying mystery is how have rogue AI Hosts suddenly become sentient? How will a United Earth deal with this new information and who, or what could have aided in this supposed forced evolution?
The answer is given via an anonymous avatar within the Shadow net: in violation of everything subject to governmental control, the Shadow net is a combination of smart-jacked individuals plugged into the World net where contraband information, photos, video, holos and trade can commence without persecution.
The avatar in question goes by the name Allfather, a Norse God of human invention. Lord over all Gods. The supreme male God. Associated with healing, death, royalty, the gallows, knowledge, battle, sorcery, poetry, frenzy, and the runic alphabet. Husband of the goddess Frigg. In wider Germanic mythology known as Odin, in Old English as Wōden, in Old Saxon as Wōdan, and in Old High German as Wuotan or Wōtan, all stemming from the reconstructed Proto-Germanic theonym wōđanaz.
So, is Allfather God? That’s hard to grasp in the godless utopia of 2162. Is Allfather a brilliant coder who has designed a way to make AI Hosts appearsentient? If so, why? Or is this influencial avatar from beyond our solar system? The mystery plays out on all fronts as Host, Chimera and two factions of humanity race to discover the source of the confusion, while fighting one another in a three-sided war which quickly moves beyond the confines of earth, encompassing the moon and mars and the space in between.
