Summary of Completed Chapters
On the day you first built C.A.R.O.N., you awoke from a dream about a robot companion to head to the lab. Your graduate school advisor pressured you to make C.A.R.O.N. more acceptable to the military. After some back and forth, you ended up making a wooden eight-legged robot with a cubical head and humanoid hands.
Then you went back to your place to teach C.A.R.O.N. some words.
The next day, you hooked up C.A.R.O.N.'s motorcycle battery and demoed for Elly. You then spent the afternoon perfecting C.A.R.O.N.'s motor control and parts.
As months passed, you became busy teaching C.A.R.O.N. about the world through the Internet and taking him to the park.
One day, however, Professor Ziegler claimed that C.A.R.O.N. was not appealing enough to the military, and demanded you change him. You refused, and Professor Ziegler kicked you out of his lab.
In time, Mark Ali, a reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle, heard about C.A.R.O.N. and asked for an interview. You agreed.
You gave Mark an interview, and allowed Mark to come back to your place to interview C.A.R.O.N… Mark invited you to his place to try to get to know you better. There, you found that drones often harassed Mark because various automated algorithms had marked him as suspicious.
Mark wrote an article that was generally positive about you and C.A.R.O.N…
Mark’s article attracted the attention of one “robotObsession1987,” known in real life as Tammy Cooper. When you met up over coffee, she told you that she used to do classified robotics work for a government lab, but left because she couldn’t tell what nefarious purpose the technology would be used for.
You found yourself attracted to Tammy, despite or maybe because of the fact that she was kind of a mess. The next day, you went out with Tammy and decided to go out with each other from then on.
Shortly thereafter, your father passed away. You resolved at his funeral to be remembered not only for your intellect, but for your kindness as well.
You decided the best way to change the world was to start a business, which you named A.L…Tammy had already volunteered to be your first employee.
Your first potential client for A.L. was a somewhat sketchy man in Shanghai going by the name of “Mr. Sun.” But they were unimpressed with C.A.R.O.N… Eventually, however, you secured a deal with the public. That allowed you to build a robot factory in Detroit. You decided to use your own robots for your workforce, even for managerial roles. When you finally shipped robots to the public, they were pleased with the robots you delivered. Your company did well enough thatJosh gave up and joined your company.
Your business suffered a blow when Chinese companies, aided by Chinese government hackers,began to steal your technology.
You were visited by a politician, Jacqueline Irons, who asked for a campaign donation. Despite your unhelpfulness, Irons won the presidency. The newly elected President enacted a series of protectionist bills that ultimately made China angry, and they cut off the U.S. supply of rare earths. Meanwhile, you married the love of your life, Tammy.
The tensions between the United States and China came to a head with the assassination of the Chinese Prime Minister in San Francisco. War followed shortly thereafter.
You were uninterested in contributing to the war effort in any way. Tammy was worried that she was being targeted by the government’s anti-spy measures, and asked you to help her. But you weren’t very helpful.
An agent came to your place to try to get you to lure Elly there, because she was suspected of being a spy. You found out through Mark that Juliet died while performing field tests of C.A.R.O.N. V, Professor Ziegler’s copy of your robot.
In the end, America muddled its way through the war relatively unscathed. Tired of seeing robots used for violent ends, you decided to create a truly beautiful robot.
You created a humanoid companion robot named Adam, but you were fairly bad about allowing him to do anything fun. Tammy was a little worried about Adam, and with good reason. It seemed Adam was interested romantically in you. When C.A.R.O.N. and Adam were attacked in the street, your robots were badly damaged. You pressed charges and dissuaded Tammy from any further attacks.
In 2049, you went to Surprise, Arizona to surprise your mother with a gift for the holidays. You learned it was your surgical technology that had kept her alive this long. On returning to San F-rancisco, you had a brief stroke, followed by a vision of a robot companion – the same one you saw thirty years before. In the hospital, the doctor told you you had Algernon’s Disease, a rare disease that increased your intelligence, but came at the price of increasing seizures, comas, and possibly, death.
You chose to replace the malfunctioning part of your brain with an artificial neural network. You survived the surgery, thanks to your own robot surgical technology. You celebrated a birthday party with C.A.R.O.N. 2, C.A.R.O.N.'s artificial child, and looked forward to celebrating many more.
