The Turing Exception by William Hertling

In the 2043, humans and AI coexist in a precarious balance of power. But in the grim aftermath of a runaway nanotech attack, a powerful underground collective known as XOR concludes AI can no longer coexist with humanity.

Catherine Matthews and her allies, including an ancient AI long believed dead, must find a solution before XOR's planned extermination war.

In the year 2043, humans and AI coexist in a precarious balance of power enforced by a rigid caste reputation system designed to ensure that only those AI who are trustworthy and contribute to human society increase in power.

Everything changes when a runaway nanotech event leads to the destruction of Miami. In the grim aftermath, a powerful underground collective known as XOR dedicates that AI can no longer coexist with humanity.

AI pioneers Catherine Matthews, Leon Tsarev, and Mike Williams believe that mere months are left before XOR starts an extermination war. Can they find a solution before time runs out?
