A startling breakthrough in artificial intelligence at MIT produces the first super-intelligent computer capable of thinking independently, as humans do. With an “IQ” that is incalculable, it is fluent in all languages and able to read a book in a fraction of a second.

A scientist and a philosopher decide to have it scan all of human knowledge and then ask it if there is evidence for God. But first they must work around the government officials, who have shut down the computer, padlocked the MIT lab and banned any use of the program until it can be studied.
