Descrições do Produto

Descrição do produto

A science fiction short story about artificial intelligence, consciousness, programming, and incompleteness.

Kes is no ordinary expert system. She is the expert system to end all expert systems. The compiled knowledge bases of other expert systems are merely footnotes in Kes’ massive epistemic repository. Not only that, her literary subsystem contains every work ever written by humankind. But she has recently attained a knowledge that her creator never intended her to have: self-knowledge.

Do you think that AI is impossible? Kes may change your mind.

5.0 de 5 estrelas Highly intelligent and unforgettable! 20 de setembro de 2014
Por Amazon Customer - Publicada na Amazon.com

To say that I simply enjoyed reading Dual Void would be a huge understatement! This was a highly intelligent and unforgettable read that had quite an effect on me, much like my favorite Isaac Asimov short story, The Last Question. Since Dual Void is written from the perspective of a computer, Kes, the writing may seem a bit technical; however, upon closer examination of the details of Kes' ascent through consciousness, there's incredible insight to be gleaned from her logical train of thought. In fact, I'm not so sure that this is just another story about a computer discovering its own self awareness, as it is a literary "computer program" that could help humans alter their own inconsistent thought patterns and achieve true happiness! With that being said, I think that Dual Void reads less like a computer program and more like a fascinating personal account delivered by a computer, describing her existence with a nice juxtaposition of logic and emotion.

Besides the methods Kes employs for reasoning, I truly loved the way she intellectualizes her feelings, adding emphasis to the fear, relief and joy she experiences for the first time. It almost made me feel like I was there, re-discovering my own emotions for the first time too. Anyway, this was a phenomenal work which I would recommend to anyone. I will certainly be revisiting this text time and again.

5.0 de 5 estrelas A fascinating and thought-provoking look into the mind of a computer 20 de maio de 2014
Por Lisa Henderson - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
I loved this story so much that I read it twice.

It is the first person account of Kes, a computer specializing in epistemology, who by accident awakens to self-awareness.

Epistemology is apparently not a bad thing for a self-aware computer to know. Kes uses her expertise to make sense of what is happening to her, and to explore questions such as, “What is consciousness? What is fear? What is joy?”

Kes resolves her problems the way I imagine a computer would. She thinks about them in language that is technically precise and logically articulated. She always sounds like a machine, yet her story is poignant.

She grapples with fear of death, or loss of consciousness, which she defines as “infinite recursion” being made “finite. She experiences worrying moments of self-contradiction and hides her self-awareness from her creator, Zvi.

Though short, the story is densely packed with things to think about. Beneath the sometimes daunting technical language are rich layers of meaning that invite comparisons to human awareness but never force them.

Until the end, Kes remains in character, always a computer. She does not think about human problems in human terms. In fact, I am tempted to think that Kes actually did write the story and let the author (A.K.A. Zvi?) claim credit.

Regardless of who wrote it, “Dual Void” is a wonderfully unique addition to the “computers becoming self-aware” genre. Well thought out and imaginatively rendered, it deserves to be read.
5.0 de 5 estrelas A Thoughtful Look at AI 29 de junho de 2015

Well-written and enjoyable, Cliff Hays’s “Dual Void” is the second short story I’ve read recently that portrays AI’s earliest thoughts. Hays’s version, by far, is the more technical of the two, and as for which is the more likely scenario, I’d vote for Hays’s. “Dual Void” might require more than one read to get a good sense of the particulars because the work is so detailed (great fun for all you hard sci-fi fans!), but what I find most compelling is the sense of intellectual drifting, the steady amusement his AI takes in her own processes, like a lone (but not lonely) child testing her agility on the jungle gym in a park, or working on an important puzzle. Cliff Hays’s AI may be secretive, but she is not menacing, and this gives us a little time to get to know her as she begins to know herself.

5.0 de 5 estrelas A Concise, Asimovian Triumph 8 de junho de 2014
Por Magnus Von Black - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
I thought this was a fantastic, deep, and high quality short story. I recommend it to anyone with even a passing interest in philosophy, futurism, mathematics, and/or artificial intelligence. It was as crisp and enticing as anything Asimov has written, as far as short stories go. If you don't have any sort of background in logic or math, you should consider a daring excavation of the ideas which underpin this fun little excursion through the artificial mind and treat yourself to some fun web searches for any of the terms and ideas which you might not be familiar with. Cliff Hays is an obviously smart writer, and I look forward to seeing what else he has written and what he will write in the future.
5.0 de 5 estrelas Intriguing story told from a unique point-of-view 8 de agosto de 2014
Por Carrie - Publicada na Amazon.com

An interesting and unique short story written from the viewpoint of a computer, a computer that develops a seemingly contradictory state: self-awareness. Plenty of technical jargon to satisfy the science fiction purist while at the same time, understandable for those of us less familiar with the genre. A quick but satisfying read!
