Year 45 of the Age of Perfection. People live in 20-by-20 flying capsules, wasting time in a safe and idyllic world of virtual reality. An all-powerful artificial intelligence (AI), Systema, serves their every need and protects them. When Liza's boyfriend dies under mysterious circumstances, she struggles to find the right questions. The female protagonist has to leave the Capsule and to fight for empowerment. How does a young man die in the Age of Perfection? Is somebody manipulating Systema behind the scenes? Are the avatars of Net City friends, enemies, or simply illusions? What lies beyond the plasma-screen walls of The Capsule? In a world where AI performs every task automatically, is there room for free will? The dystopia "The Capsule" is a science fiction detective novel about freedom, power and the use of AI. Against the background of future political and technological events, a mysterious crime is being investigated under the watchful eye of big brother technologies. The cyberpunk dystopia "The Capsule" is the first novel of female Russian author Olga Loukianova, books researcher and IT- entrepreneur. It was translated into English by Steven McGrath in 2018. "The Capsule" passed from hand to hand and now it has become available to the wide circle of readers.
