Cory Doctorow: SkyNet Ascendant

Science Fiction of the present may not be ideal way to tell the future, but SF author Cory Doctorow writes that is a good way to understand the past and learn where we are going. The science fiction is rooted in issues of now and is reflected in author’s interpretation of the future. Given our popular discourse around AI, perhaps that’s why he feels that the SkyNet is ascendant. An excellent essay for Locus Magazine
