Short Story Battle #18 – A.I. Absurdity

Artificial Intelligence

Greetings, lovers of short stories. We’re back from our off-week and we’re ready to rock.

This time around, our authors were asked to write us stories concerning Artificial Intelligence.

But we didn’t want a simple story with a talking computer. Of course not.

We wanted an Artificial Intelligence that was not at all what was intended. We wanted an A.I. that had jumped the rails in some way, become impractical, was delivering results that it was never programmed for. We wanted a story of Artificial Intelligence gone haywire.

Representing the arena this week is Joseph Devon.

Challenging him is B.T. Joy:

BTJoyB.T. Joy is a short fiction writer with a particular interest in the horror genre. Born in Glasgow in the mid-1980s, he lived in London from 2007 to 2009, where he received a first-class Honours degree in Creative Writing and Film Studies.

Later, in 2012, he was part of the last cohort to undergo teacher education at Jordanhill College. He has worked in a range of fields; most recently as a high school English teacher.

His short horror stories have been included with Static Movement, Surreal Grotesque, James Ward Kirk Fiction, Human Echoes Podcast, MircoHorror, Flashes In The Dark, Forgotten Tomb Press and Chilling Tales For Dark Nights.

B.T. Joy is also a practicing poet and has had verse in various forms published in journals, magazines and anthologies worldwide.
