Doug Preston – The Kraken Project

Preston’s The Kraken Project deliberately misleads the reader… one may think it is an undersea adventure, a space travel odyssey, or an ancient Greek mythological tale. That is why it is important to give this thriller time, because it really is an update of Frankenstein, using artificial intelligence as the potential monster. In our talk, Preston outlines his fears that strong AI, as it is called, may eventually be mankind’s undoing, with some prominent scientists sharing his dread. Entertaining and thought provoking, it’s a great summer read.
