I finished this book a couple of weeks ago. It's the tale of an AI that breaks through the Turing test and becomes officially sentient. 200 years later, "he" (Darling) is now in search of a dead artist (who may not be dead) and a mystery centering around the ability to copy AI-based sentient beings.
This is a very interesting book. The discussions around AI were intriguing. It's written well, and I was easily drawn into the story. If you're into sci-fi, you should pick up a copy and dive in.
