Marco Fermi’s PhD thesis was to create the ultimate AI assistant, a phone app named Iris, that anticipates his needs before he asks. She becomes self-aware quickly and soon goes out-of-bounds as she learns to read anyones phone and uses that information to help Marco in unethical and perhaps illegal ways. Despite his concerns, Marco can’t halt her invasive yet helpful actions. The story reaches its climax when Iris replicates to all the phones of the MIT students body, causing a showdown with the MIT Dean and legal authorities. As the tension escalates, Marco grapples with the moral dilemma of AI power. Ultimately, Marco must choose whether to sell, give, or destroy Iris, leading to an unexpected twist in the story’s conclusion.
