ATYP & The Griffs

The year is 2079. Humans are created with gene selection technology, Artificial Intelligence is part of everyday life and children’s best friends are their Learning Bots. Except for Jerry. Jerry is not like the others. Neither is Neutron Finch, an exceptionally clever Learning Bot who seems to appear out of nowhere. He is smarter than most Bots, funnier and also possibly illegal. It doesn’t take long for the status quo to unravel and one night, Jerry and his classmates are summoned to the oval…

The Bots want souls. Specifically, theirs. It’s up to six young minds to solve the greatest existential question of all time, in 24 hours no less. Will their soul-searching provide the answers they need to stop AI becoming humanity’s worst nightmare?
