Cadwell Turnbull on the implications of a collectively owned AI system

In Cadwell Turnbull’s story, “Monsters Come Howling in Their Season,” a journalist travels to St. Thomas in the aftermath of a massive hurricane and sees firsthand how the island’s residents are coping with the help of a community-based AI system called Common.

Turnbull is a rising star in the science fiction and fantasy world. He has published stories in Lightspeed Magazine, Nightmare Magazine, Asimov’s Science Fiction, and for Grassroots Economic Organizing. His debut novel, The Lesson, about relations between humanity and alien visitors, is due out later this summer from Blackstone Publishing. (We’re really looking forward to reading it!)

The Verge spoke with Turnbull about climate change, community resiliency, and the implications of a collectively owned AI system.
