In Robopocalypse a powerful artificial intelligence called Archos becomes self aware and perpetrates a massive attack against humanity by taking control of the machines we have come to rely on. Everything from children’s toys to self-driving cars to bomb-defusing robots are used to bring humanity to its knees. The survivors of the initial attacks will have to band together and find new ways to use technology to survive. Author Daniel H. Wilson has a master’s degree in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics and a PhD in robotics from Carnegie Mellon University. He is the author of several novels and is currently adapting Robopocalypse for Steven Spielberg and DreamWorks.
