Backstory

After the Terror@Home attacks, Ray emigrated from the US to the EU. In 2029 he took the role of Head of Research at the Ouroboros Project. He still works for Google, but only in the sense that they pay his salary as a part of that project.

One of the few black marks on his futurist scorecard is the failure of self-aware AI by 2030. "I joined this project because I don't like to be wrong," he quipped, "and besides, inventing the future has become a habit."

The revelation that the first AI emerged ahead of his prediction - at the earliest edge of his bell curve - did not seem to phase him.
