Kludged Singularity


Loved it! 😍

An interesting look into advanced artificial intelligence and what it may be possible for a computer worm to do with the right software.

Kludged Singularity has a lot of twists and turns that you truly need to be unaware of for it to have the full impact. In an attempt to not give anything away, I will keep things a little vague.

This book has two main characters: Alan and Surendra. Both have been chosen based on their previous work records to be interviewed for a new position at their companies. Alan is "off site" in Orlando and Surendra is working on a vacation island that houses all the companies' workers. I wasn't sure at first if they were working for the same company or not, and if their paths would cross. But once they do cross, things get really interesting.

Alan was a bit of a lazy genius; he created Kludge, a software that could make sure his work stats were up to par and do some of the easier IT tasks for him while he used company time to improve on Kludge (think, Alexa) and do other non-work related activities – some of which could probably get him in legal trouble.

Surendra was more by the book and was wanted for the promotion because of his attention to detail and doing things by the company policy.

Alan ends up making a mistake at work, and Surendra and his team get involved... It's worth a read to find out what is going on. I do apologize for not going into more detail, but the gasps of shock I let out during reading this book were one of the reasons why I loved it so much, and I'd hate to ruin that for anyone else!

If you are interested in AI or IT even the slightest bit, then I think you will thoroughly enjoy this book.
