My Rating: 5/5 stars

Short Summary via Goodreads: 
Piya Johar, a university researcher acts as AI warden, midwife, and executioner. Her role is to determine if AI trapped in the special isolated system would be a curse to humankind or its savior. She knows the risk of engaging with the AI and the university constantly tests and drills her. No one is more prepared to battle the wits of machine intelligence than Piya.

My Review:

Thought-provoking short story about the dangers of talking to a super-intelligent AI. Well developed plot and main character. Looking forward to reading more in Blackbourn’s Roko series.
