Elliot Leeds is dead — or is he? A pioneering software mogul, Leeds makes headlines one last time when his private jet plunges into the Pacific. Months later, his grief-paralyzed widow Melanie discovers Elliot’s greatest creation: a virtual-reality simulation of himself that he masterminded before his demise. Programmed with advanced artificial intelligence, thousands of hours of his recorded thoughts and speech, and a digital re-creation of his face and body, “Elliot 2.0” is a talking, thinking, virtual soul. And though merely an image on the video screens of their wired, high-tech mansion, it — he — can answer questions, hold conversations, share memories, and perhaps even grow in intelligence and capacity. The question is…is he alive?
