    So, the "probe/AI" tells him about an invasion in the future and near the end, the probe/AI turns him into an AI? – FuzzyBoots Nov 3 '18 at 18:13
  • Fuzzy - I think it is in the middle as the aliens attack and the military phases out, the guy who finds the probe/AI stays behind and and gets turned into an AI. – James Nov 5 '18 at 2:52

That sounds like a book series by Richard Fox called The Ember War Saga

In the near future, an alien probe arrives on Earth with a pivotal mission: to determine if humanity has what it takes to survive the impending invasion by a merciless armada. The probe discovers Marc Ibarra, a young inventor who holds the key to a daring gambit that could save a fraction of Earth's population. Humanity's only chance lies with Ibarra's ability to keep a terrible secret and engineer the planet down the narrow path to survival. Earth will need a fleet. One with a hidden purpose. One strong enough to fight a battle against annihilation.

The series has about nine books (starting with the titular The Ember War) and has spawned a couple of other smaller series.
