Cricket the Artificially Intelligent Avatar
Humor Meets Science Fiction
Who is Cricket?
Cricket is an artificially intelligent avatar who appears in my short story, "Backlash/Frontlash\Whiplash" which is a $0.99 ebook in the Kindle Store.
Because my story is about artificial intelligence, I decided to create an avatar on Facebook who would "become" self-aware and take over (all in fun--it's not a real thing...yet). So Cricket has commandeered my profile and posts a lot of sarcastic stuff about me. Hopefully she generates some laughs, even if it's at my expense.
Software developer Dora has created the world's most advanced artificial intelligence hologram called Aya. Intended to be an avatar who elevates the user in social media spheres, the testing phase proves that the proverbial off switch doesn't apply to genuine AI.
Anthology Featuring Cricket
"Backlash/Frontlash\Whiplash" by Bria Burton is featured in The Light Fantastic anthology.
