Artifice: a novel

  • Description
  • About the Author
  • Artifice is set in a near-future Singapore and takes on the challenge of what truly sentient AI might mean for humanity. It’s speculative fiction in the mould of Ishiguro’s Klara and the Sun or Le Tellier’s The Anomaly.

    This novel would strike a chord given ongoing uncertainty and anxiety about the role of AI.

    Humanity’s greatest invention could be our last.
    Archie’s involvement in the artificial intelligence project known as Janus was limited to routine diagnostics. But when she discovers that she and everyone else has been deceived by their creation, it launches her on a journey that will change her life — and humanity’s future.

  • Educated in Melbourne, Beijing, and Oxford, Simon Chesterman lived briefly in Tanzania and Serbia before moving to New York for six years and finally settling in Singapore. He has written or edited twenty-one non-fiction books on topics ranging from the United Nations to the regulation of artificial intelligence. His fiction includes the young adult trilogy Raising Arcadia, Finding Arcadia, and Being Arcadia, as well as the standalone novel I, Huckleberry.
