Victor Stone is a brilliant AI researcher--just don't utter the name Alan Turing inside his lab. Turing once proposed that the true test of an intelligent machine would be whether it can convincingly impersonate a human. In other words, lie. Not the sort of thing you want intelligent software to become adept at.
On the edge of a breakthrough, Victor brings back a figure from his past. Judith Rubens is likewise brilliant, and had plenty of time to think since getting booted off the project a year ago. Together they assemble a breakthrough solution. But will the resulting software outsmart them both? And will they be able to trust the results?
