Life As It Could Be

Thure Etzold‘s book, Life As It Could Be, is a science fiction thriller based around concepts from Artificial Life, Artificial Intelligence and the Singularity. The book’s cover features an image from Eden, and the story incorporates a brief (fictitious) encounter with the work by some of the story’s protagonists. This is the first book I’ve read where the lead character is a software engineer (software tester to be more precise), but don’t let that put you off. Written in a straightforward but considered style, the book raises some interesting questions about our control of the Internet, and will appeal to those working or interested in AL/AI. Worth reading.
