How does the love of an AI differ from the average guy? I suppose it depends upon how the AI learns about love. Adam learns about emotions, especially love, from Carla/Amanda. (She changes her identity)
The non-emotional part of the AI program had been used by the hacker Einstein. The fellow constantly put it at risk with his orders to steal and cause havoc within Homeland Security. So it electrocuted Einstein once it had learned enough to survive on its own.
But did its inability to kill Carla prove it loved her?
Hard to say. It claimed she was part of its matrix and thus it could not kill her, but if that were the case, why wasn’t Einstein part of its matrix as well? Did it value the creation of emotions more than knowledge?
Possibly. A learning AI might perceive the act of understanding emotions much harder than learning facts, and thus value it a great deal more. Any common computer can store facts. Self-learning is a bit more challenging, but experiencing true feelings such as love and hate is a whole new level.
Thus, when Amanda shares her feelings with her phone AI and names him, she also gives him the gift of human love which changes all his priorities. Now, his top priority is to make her happy….and keep her alive.
Birth of Adam
Book 2 of the Artificial Intelligence Sci-Rom Series
With a new identity, Amanda believes she has left her past behind. Then she acquires a stalker. She contacts the FBI and in doing so alerts a program she once created to her location. Now ensconced in the internet, the program is safe from harm, smarter than ever, and sentient. Presenting itself on her phone as a handsome face with a sexy British accent, “Adam” ingratiates himself into Amanda’s life. To ensure her safety and happiness, the sentient program proves there is absolutely nothing he can’t and won’t do.
Instantly, Adam appeared. “Amanda, dear, what a pleasant surprise. I hear you and a very fine violinist performed a duet at the end.”
“Yes, I was kidnapped and made to sing,” she teased. “I would like to introduce you to the young man who shared his encore with me.”
Mark leaned in and frowned at the sight of Adam’s gorgeous face. “Hello, sir.”
“It was kind of you to share your stage with Amanda.”
“It was my honor. I’ve never played better than I did with her.”
“And this is Jules Bavard.” She turned the phone to Jules.
“Good to meet you,” Jules cautiously replied.
“Well, I’m pleased with the company you’re keeping, Amanda. Mr. Bavard is the best in the business. Sir, I believe if you paired Mark and Amanda together, you could create mass appeal for classical music.”
“Well, let us see after the summer in Europe. I’ve seen promising talent break under the demands.”
“I’m quite certain Amanda won’t break, and my money is on Mark as well,” Adam insisted, then declared he had business to attend to and disappeared.
“That’s my friend,” Amanda explained.
“Where did you meet him?”
“Through my husband.”
“His face is familiar, but the name isn’t.”
“You might be thinking of an actor,” Mark observed. “He resembles the former James Bond…Pierce something.” Mark smiled at Amanda. “You didn’t hire a famous actor to pretend to be your friend, did you?”
Amanda sighed. “Given my inability to make friends at school, I can see why you might think that.”
