Bárður Bjarkarson | 2 comments I'm looking for a book I read in the last 3-4 years and I can remember some basic plot points but nothing specific.
It is about an Artificial intelligence that becomes kinda evil (as they tend to do).
The AI starts off with the mind of a small child and he has two researchers that are basically his "babysitters". There's also some sort of department head who is kind of the AI's mother and she's not around much and doesn't really believe in the project.
At some point the AI connects to the internet somehow and that's how the singularity moment comes about.
I should also mention that I don't believe the AI was ever in a human form. He definitely started out in a normal desktop computer that wasn't even fancy. There was this whole thing about it just re-creating the top layers of the mind because the rest was too much hard work(computing).
It's available in audiobook form and I think it was definitely read by a woman.

I believe it's not a very old book, written in the last 10 years probably and I think (although I'm far from certain) that it's written by a woman.
