Book Review: The Lifecycle of Software Objects

The Lifecycle of Software ObjectsThe Lifecycle of Software Objects by Ted Chiang
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This was an odd one. AI has always been an odd realm to tackle. Why create artificial beings that make you feel like they're human? Then you've created another life (albeit a mechanical one) you're responsible for... The humanity in this story is refreshing. Ironic, I know, in a story about robots...but real human questions exist.

The formatting was excellent, and the flow superb once you wrap your head around the concept. It's entirely new, but very possible, and in the iWorld we live in, it makes one question if this sort of world is in our immediate future.
