In his novella Companion, the young Romanian writer Cătălin Marcu speaks about a world in which robots are people's slaves.
Some people tend to abuse them and humiliate them, just as slave owners used to do with human slaves throughout history. Consequences? Read the book!
When Paul decides to buy himself a companion, the latest state of the art technology in robotics, artificial tissue and artificial intelligence, he does it on a whim.
But he will soon find himself on an emotional journey that will make him question the status quo of society, love and his personal beliefs.
Meanwhile, all that Anna, his companion, wants is to make her new master as happy as she can.
She will have to learn and adapt along the way, as she will find the human mind is not as straightforward as her logical algorithms.
About the Author
Young writer Cătălin Marcu introduces himself:
With more than 10 years working in video games development, I am fascinated by the evolution of technology and the impact it has on our lives. Advances in artificial intelligence, medical research, robotics and even entertainment will shape our future, sometimes in ways that will take us by surprise. My first book, Companion, blends my passion for creating new worlds and characters with my fascination for science and futurism. It takes a look at only a small fragment of what a not so remote future will most likely have in store for us and it ponders, in a light and accessible manner, on what the consequences could be for us as individuals and, by extrapolation, for our society.
