Dan Simmons - Hyperion Cantos - AI's

Lamia and Johnny heading toward the technocore AI's. In order to meet the AI's they must enter a cyberspace common to many sci-fi stories.

As they do, things become abstracted. They meet the stable AI, Ummon. Lamia looks for a face, but sees only shifting colours.

The stable AI's foresee a future alongside humanity.

I've no idea how you can draw a mind, each AI is based on a different tea bowl!

The volatile AI's want to eradicate humans as part of plans to build an AI god..

The ultimate AI's want to support humanity, only if they benefit the AI's plans to create a god.
