Human Jokes Shortlisted at NiTH!

Human Jokes, my story of an AI trying to regain human trust, has made the Needle in the Hay shortlist for The Death and Public Speaking Award.

The brief was to write a short story in which a character faces high stakes when addressing the public. Failure to say the right thing could lead to terrible consequences.

My story features an AI, who spooked everyone during a previous talk. The cameras are now on her, and the world awaits. Can she show them that she can be trusted, or should she be shut down?

You can read Human Jokes here.

There are some great stories in the shortlist, and some very different takes on the same brief. We now await the announcement as to which story took first places with the judges!
