TWA #18 – A.I. Absurdity Battle Thread

“The Eye That Sees, the Ear That Hears” by B.T. Joy


“User Error” by Joseph Devon


Artificial Intelligence Welcome short story lovers to this week’s competition. We have a battle of wits in the arena this week, a contest of intelligence.

But it is not the authors’ brains we speak of.

This week our writers were challenged to come up with a tale of Artificial Intelligence gone wrong.

How did they do?

Representing the arena is Joseph Devon with “User Error.”

Challenging is B.T. Joy with “The Eye That Sees, the Ear That Hears.”

Battle #18 is live!

Read, comment, vote, enjoy!

We have two judges that will render their decision by Friday. The third vote comes from you, the readers. We ask that you read both stories objectively, and then leave a comment below or on the story itself. Authors aren’t allowed to comment on their own stories, but we’re sure they’ll be checking in here. We’ll tally up the totals and announce our champion on Friday.
