9780595673827: Dominant Life Form

Dominant Life Form chronicles a secret project whose mission’s success or failure will determine the future of earth’s native intelligences. Set inside the only chance earth will have to create true intelligent reproducing robots, AI creation proceeds from individual battles of the team with self to increasingly complex layers of what it means to be conscious. Even their human creators do not know if they will coexist with the beings they are designing, or will find themselves in second place behind a new dominant life form.

From the Inside Flap:

Eric Lorenz, ex-scientist, ex-entrepreneur, finds himself drawn into a mysterious project concerning robotic development. Run by an all but unseen eccentric old man, Lorenz deals more and more intimately with office robots instead of fellow humans, and working to constantly improve them. He discovers a handful of other humans are performing similar functions at scattered locations across the country, but to what end is unclear. The consuming nature of scientific inquiry and the inept relationship ability of the human members of the team combines to form an eclectic and dynamic group whose skills produce results beyond their vision. Beyond their ability to know what will come of it in the race for Dominant Life Form.
