An unusual case involving a robot polarizes opinion in the Jeffersonian this week as Brennan and Booth investigate the death of Ian Goldberg, head of Social Cybernetics, a tech firm on the cusp of providing companions for profoundly autistic children.
With such a noble calling, and a bright future ahead, the team question why someone would want to murder the company's boss. And if not some one, could the murderer be AMI, the company's empathetic AI at the center of their groundbreaking development?
As the investigation unfolds, the mystery brings out varied thoughts and feelings on the future of artificial intelligence among the team.
Meanwhile, as Brennan's 40th birthday looms, she decides to shake things up with some secret plans of her own.
