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.
