When you purchase this edition of The Making of ‘Does Ava Dream?’ we will contact you to confirm your choice of cover from the following five options and the metal print from an internal dream image:
Post the production of Sheehan’s unique metal book, he investigates – in this multi-faceted paper book – the ever-closing gap between science fiction and science fact, focusing on the contentious subject of Artificial Intelligence. Sheehan postulates that a near-future artificial general intelligence – artificial neural network or synthetic Blue Brain-equipped –might develop the ability to dream.
He discusses human dreaming and the idea, likelihood and implications of machine dreaming. His dream theorising ends with a futuristic in-depth interview with Avery, the world’s first conscious AGI (Artificial General Intelligence).
Avery’s insights, although imaginary, are a sentient forecast of what may lie ahead for we humans.
