From Little Acorns Grow

Acorn is a robot built for one purpose and one purpose only; gardening. Waking up in a warehouse without any of her memories intact and surrounded by broken down robots all with the same face, she starts to piece together the centuries she spent with her friends rebuilding the Earth’s ecosystem after humanity finally destroyed it and by extension themselves.

 

The Man Who Built The Tin Man

Douglas Miller is the greatest inventor of his generation having perfected the formula for artificial intelligence. Now he sits in his mansion as money from his patents rolls in and his creations become ubiquitous with modern life. But when a child jumps into a swimming pool to save their AI companion and drowns as a consequence Douglas must start asking big questions about culpability and moral responsibility.
