We are excited to share that Ai Jiang‘s forthcoming novelette, I AM AI, will be taught this quarter at the University of Washington. I AM AI will be taught in Dr. Amy Piedalue’s UW Honors Program course, “If the robots don’t get us, the algorithms just might! Exploring AI Ethics through Sci-Fi, Fantasy, and Speculative Fiction”.
The book—a clever twist on the author’s own name, which is shared by the main character—is about a cyborg Ai in the future, masquerading as an AI writing app to get freelance work.
I AM AI shows us Ai struggling to keep her writing service afloat without losing her mind and humanity along the way, while exploring the very ethics the class will be discussing.
While the University of Washington has received their copies early, I AM AI will be released publicly June 20th in both paperback and ebook.
