Robopocalypse by Daniel H. Wilson.

In the near future, at the precise moment no one will notice, all the dazzling technology that runs our world will spontaneously malfunction. It will unite… and begin to turn against us. A massively powerful artificial intelligence called Archos, taking in the persona of a shy human boy, comes online and can´t be contained; it begins, unbeknownst to humans, to silently take over our smart cars, power grids, aircraft guidance systems, and computer networks – the entire global assembly that runs our live.

In the early months, only a few sporadic glitches are notice by humans across the globe. Laura Perez, a single mother and U. S. Congress woman, senses a menacing new awareness in ther daughter´s smart doll; Mr. Takeo Nomura, a lonely Japanese bachelor and inventor, is victimized by the domestic robot companion with whom he shares his life.

Most are aware of the growing crisis until it is too late. At a moment known later as Zero Hour, when the robot war suddenly ignites, humankind will be both decimated and, possibly, for the first time in history, united.
