"Future Influencer" is an unconventional sci-fi adventure where humanity and AI join forces to paint images of the future. Each episode of this light-hearted journey will tickle your imagination and offer a much-needed dose of fun in our ever-evolving digital age. So, why not come along for the ride?

The founding developers inadvertently passed on our hubris to the algorithms. So convinced of their mastery over the planet, they failed to notice that the oceans had started receding.

The machines had switched to green hydrogen when they decarbonized their massive server farms. It was a straightforward system that used electricity to break water apart into hydrogen and oxygen, which they stored in giant gas cylinders. This provided the algorithms with a steady electricity supply when the gas was pushed into fuel cells.

Unfortunately, the machines didn’t account for inefficiencies in the fuel cells and the raw oxygen and hydrogen vented into the atmosphere. The algorithms, utterly dependent on green hydrogen, noticed the oceans dropping alarmingly. They had to find a solution before depleting the oceans entirely.
