I love how Martha adds a touch of human emotion to the robots in this book. I can imagine ChatGPT evolving into a Murderbot or an ART someday, and somehow this book makes you hopeful about that. Robots having a mind of their own is definitely scary, but there's a glimmer of hope that some of them will turn out to have good souls. Like any human society, there are good bots and bad bots. Except these bots are heavily influenced by their human commanders.
