REVIEW: “Her Data Like Fingerprints” by Ashley M. Hill

Review of Ashley M. Hill, “Her Data Like Fingerprints,” Luna Station Quarterly 22 (2015): Read online. Reviewed by Sara L. Uckelman.

I was intrigued by this story right from its very excellent title. In this story, Mary Morales has been called in to see if she can help repair the arX AI that her parents created when she was a child. It’s a very simple, spare story: a conversation between Mary and arX. But in the span of that conversation Hill gives us a glimpse into Mary’s familial bonds, her childhood, her complicated relationship with the arX, as well as forces us to grapple with the question of the boundaries of AI. Really enjoyable (even if a bit sad, too)!
