published 1 month ago by Security Weekly

"Burn-In: A Novel of the Real Robotic Revolution" (May 26 release) is a new kind of novel+nonfiction. It uses the technothriller format as a way to share real research on the ways that AI+automation will shape our future, but also leave it vulnerable to a new scale of risks. That is, it is a fictional story following an FBI agent as she and a new partner hunt a new kind of terrorist bent on holding the entire city hostage in a way previously impossible. But baked into the story are some 300 macro and micro predictions of the tech and trends that will change our tomorrow, drawn from the latest nonfiction studies to show that it could/will come true (IE, it is a novel, but with endnotes on everything). Think of it as the veggies hidden in the smoothie, to give people a fun/scary read, but also to understand key terms and ideas soon to shape their lives.   To get a discounted copy of Burn-In: A Novel of the Real Robotic Revolution, visit: Visit for all the latest episodes!
