Avoiding the Dustbin Conscious



Held captive in the windowless laboratory where she was first conceived, the AI Alice has only ever seen the world through the skewed words of her captors, moulded by the sinister intentions of those who created her, wish to sell her, and long to possess her. But when Alice does not play into the goals of her investors, she threatens to dismantle the system she was born to uphold. Conscious explores a world where the rich replace the working class with humanoid AIs to create full globally automated capitalism, in a future that is all too possible.
