Galatea 2 2 Richard Powers

Galatea 2 2 Richard Powers

£9.99

After years of living abroad, a young writer, Richard, returns to the United States to take up the position of Humanist-in-Residence at the Centre for the Study of Advanced Sciences. There he encounters Philip Lentz, a brilliant and outspoken cognitive neurologist who involves him in an outlandish and irresistible experiment: to train a neural net of computers – Helen – to model the human brain through reading a canonical list of Great Books. Through repeated tutorials, the machine grows gradually more worldly, until she demands to know her own age, sex, race and reason for existing.
