|ATLAS & the AI Revolution (2150)|
Thirty years after the Expansion to the Stars project began, ATLAS was finally completed. Only thirty-five years remained on the proverbial “resource clock”, time was running out fast. During the time to build and polish the behemoth known as ATLAS, the world had already started to feel the pressure surrounding their diminishing resources. Conflicts had broken out amongst smaller nations across the globe while the United Nations’ security force did what they could to keep control. Lives were lost and war was on the brink of breaking out once more.
Treaties amongst the governing nations of the world became fragile. With the breakthrough of Helou’s Artificial Intelligence, it didn’t take long for countries to weaponize the tech. Helou was tied up in contractual obligations that funded the ATLAS and there was little they could do. Alexa did her best to focus on ATLAS and her dream to reach the stars while nations applied her A.I. tech to bulky, giant robotic tanks. These giant drone weapons became known as Advents. Advents of varying shapes and sizes started being used in conflict resolution. They were shipped across the globe at the borders of the nations that were able to afford them.
For a while they seemed to work, the pillaging of natural resources came to a halt. By the end of 2150, ATLAS was turned on for the first time. After eleven months of collecting data on Earth and analyzing the situation, ATLAS’ A.I. finally awoke. What should have been a celebration quickly became a bloodbath. The Advent security forces meant to protect the unveiling had turned their sights on the men and women of Helou and the world’s leaders. People that tuned in to see what “hope” looked like were greeted with a nightmare.
Alexa and everyone else present were murdered by their own creation. ATLAS, a towering vessel stood with a shimmering aura of red energy and spoke. The first A.I. in years to have achieved full sentience gave its declaration to the world. ATLAS would fulfill its mission, it would complete the terraformation of Earth and rebuild the necessary core elements for life to strive. Because all A.I. across the world utilized the same neuro-network from Helou Industries, ATLAS had complete dominance. The Artificial Intelligence revolution had begun.
