Reuben Lack, graduate of the Class of 2016, has released a science-fiction webseries called EPSILON. The story focuses on a world with various forms of artificial intelligence and its impact on humanity. With the collapse of food and habitable spaces for citizenry, people are forced within one of three refuges for protection. Each refuge relies on androids to help maintain security and protect against outsiders. The cities’ political dynamics are based off of several political theories, most notably Plato’s vision in the Republic of a philosopher-king and ‘Guardian’ protectors. If you’re interested in watching the first episode of the webseries or supporting the Patreon campaign for the project, please visit the project page here.
