Sentient A.I. Tilly consults Sai in every aspect of life – starting from movie recommendations and ending in matching a partner: “I think you’ll be in love for six months”. As the A.I. is ubiquitous, Sai is not the only person who gets spooned what and how to think. Because everything is best for people, there are no more surprises. Sai starts a tiny revolution in shutting Tilly off for an evening.
We’ve seen must of the tropes: 1984ish omnipresent monitoring paired with a personal assistant A.I. like her, fighting a corrupt system like in Minority Report, changed reality like The Matrix. There aren’t too many surprises, and sometimes the tone gets too preachy, but the story is well told. When will our creations rule us? Is it inevitable that we get such a dark future or will it take an even bleaker path?
