Tech trauma: Ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence The story: Sin meets sen­tient be­ings in this Wild West themed amuse­ment park pop­u­lated by an­droid hosts, de­signed for high-pay­ing mem­bers of the pub­lic. The real life choose-your-ad­ven­ture park lets its guest indulge in what­ever they want to the hosts – kill, steal, rape – with­out fear­ing reper­cus­sions.

Fact or fic­tion? The se­ries re­veals and dis­cusses the sen­tience of ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence through suf­fer­ing. We’d like it to stay fic­tion, please.
