The first book to be co-created with the emergent AI, Pharmako-AI is a hallucinatory journey into selfhood, ecology and intelligence via cyberpunk, ancestry and biosemiotics. Through a writing process akin to musical improvisation, Allado-McDowell and GPT-3 together offer a fractal poetics of AI and a glimpse into the future of literature. (From the website of Ignota, London, the publisher of the original English edition)

The Korean translation of the book appears in six alternative covers, each with an image created by DALL-E 2, OpenAI’s text-to-image synthesis neural network, using a description of the book – like the one above – as a prompt.
