Six top novels featuring Artificial Intelligence

At the B & N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog Andrew Liptak tagged six "novels that help bend the curve when it comes to robotics," including:
Nexus, by Ramez Naam

In Ramez Naam’s debut trilogy (including Crux and the upcoming Apex), a new drug called Nexus links people together mentally, and a young scientist is drawn into a world of trouble that stretches from academia to shadowy government labs. As Kade Lane works to improve the drug, he finds that there are those who are working to use it to turn people into unwitting killers. Naam works to realistically display the consequences of post-human intelligence, as a new generation comes into the world drastically different than their predecessors.
