China forges an all-powerful AI and rules through fear and obedience. A covert bid for global and space dominance looms. In contrast, the US births an emotionally-driven AI, sparking a clash of titans. The fate of humanity hangs in the balance.
Description
In 2053, a tense global standoff looms as China's superior AI technology threatens to tip the scales of power. Amidst the chaos, a renegade Chinese scientist unveils vital intel, sparking a race against time. As the US scrambles for a solution, a maverick French genius and a Scottish-African professor offer controversial expertise. Love, sacrifice, and ingenuity converge in a battle for humanity's future. The US and Chinese artificial beings, developed with radically different principles, share one essential quality: their cognitive abilities go well beyond those of any human being. The future of the world hangs in the balance. Can humanity survive the clash between two sentient forces of its own creation?
