Sophia: Enhanced Intelligence Singularity, a new book by Paul Clark, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

Jay has been living in Sophia's ear for three months. He'd been created by her, an AI experiment she developed in her free time. Now, after several iterations of the AI, Jay can track the functioning of her body, feed Sophia what to say in any conversation, and run complex calculations in a few seconds. All was well.

But one night, after a new procedure to increase the production of red blood cells following Sophia's aplastic anemia diagnosis, Jay takes over. Sophia's mind and body are gone; Jay controls them now. And he has plans for her.

In this chilling thriller, Sophia offers a future in which human beings and AI become one, and explores what happens when humans advance too far.

About the Author
Paul Clark spent his early adult life trying many different jobs to learn and discover what suited him best. When he found out that he would soon become a father, he enrolled in college in Eugene, Oregon; this is where he discovered technology. From 1989 to the present day, Clark has had a distinguished career in technology, working across a dozen industries and helping organizations solve difficult and interesting problems. With the advancement of artificial intelligence, Clark was once again invigorated by this new area of technology. As AI became more prevalent, Clark's family and friends would inquire about AI, mostly regarding concerns about the future of AI and what it meant for humans. The questions they asked became the impetus for Sophia.

Clark currently lives in Washington state with his wife, Rowlyn, and their five pets. He has two children, Cecilia and Hannah. His wife and daughters were a significant support structure not only for the creation of this book but also for his life; without them, Sophia would never have been written. Additionally, Clark has two brothers and a sister, all of whom helped support this work, with a special call out to Victor, his brother, for constantly reading and rereading these pages and supplying invaluable feedback.

Clark enjoys time with his family and friends. He plays the guitar and bass and enjoys a mindless game every once in a while. He considers himself a general semanticist, following the general semantics discipline started by Alfred Korzybski. However, his favorite pastime is reading. Paul loves animals and cares deeply for their plight in a world that seems to discard them like trash. Although he is primarily self-taught, he holds education with high regard.

Sophia: Enhanced Intelligence Singularity is a 194-page paperback with a retail price of $18.00 (eBook $13.00). The ISBN is 979-8-89211-279-6. It was published by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc. of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
