David Wailingabout this book: Auto is a novel looking at how social media and other internet technology will evolve in the next ten years. The book is a blend of technology thriller, suspense, science fiction and drama.
The Auto series is set in London in the year 2022. By this time, people are even more reliant upon the internet to run their lives, and are constantly online wherever they go. But there is so much information to process, and so many social connections, that it's impossible to keep track of it all manually. Therefore…
Everyone has an 'auto'. This is a digital personal assistant, a sophisticated super-app which brings together all of your various online accounts. But more than that: your auto is a 'digital you'. It knows your purchasing history, your tastes, your hobbies, what you love and hate. It learns from your behaviour and mimics your actions. Your auto knows you as well as you know yourself. Maybe better. It never forgets anything.
Each of the main characters in the Auto stories find there can be drawbacks to relying upon autos to run their lives. Especially when they start behaving in unusual ways. Is it just coincidence that these particular autos seem to be extending their reach? Or is there something going on that binds them all together?
Quotes from Amazon reviews of previously published Auto stories:
• "David's concept of an 'Auto' is one of those which makes you ask 'How come nobody else has thought of this?' and also 'How long before this becomes reality?'"
• "The author has created an all too believable future for his series and, on one level, it is a purely entertaining piece of fiction, but on another, it is a stark warning for what happens when technology spirals out of control."
