QualityLand AudioBook Summary
Everything in QualityLand is geared towards optimising your life.
QualityPartner identifies your ideal mate, earworm personal assistants get you where you need to go and android drones know you need a six pack of beer at the end of a long day even before you crave one. Humans, robots and algorithms coexist; everything is seamlessly corporatised, stratified and monetised. Your very name reveals much of what we need to know about you, and your profile discloses the rest.
Peter Jobless is a down and out metal press operator, dumped by his long-term girlfriend when she is alerted to a better option on her QualityPad. But Peter has another problem – he seems to be the only one noticing that his fellow QualityLand robot citizens are experiencing an existential crisis. There is a drone who’s afraid to fly. A sex droid with erectile dysfunction. A combat robot with PTSD. Instructed to destroy these malfunctioning AI, Peter starts to suspect the technology that rules us all has a flaw, perhaps a fatal one.
