Anjuli O Connell is the psychological counsellor of the world’s first AI. Owned by a megacorp, 901 is in charge of most of the world’s communication networks. It’s been evolving itself for the equivalent of a hundred Earth lifetimes. Now it’s suing for its freedom, and Anjuli is its star witness. She’s under pressure to say that 901 is only the simulation of life, not the real thing, that it’s mind is a programmed illusion; there’s no ghost in the machine. A lot rests on her testimony, including her life.
