Earthseed, a young adult novel I read while coming of age is a favorite. It deals about a socalled seed ship programmed with an A.I. tasked to birth and raise a generation from it's sperm and ovum banks when it detects a suitable planet. being raised without real life parents with only peers tasked with colonizing an alien planet raises all kinds of problems. Pamela Sargent wrote a lot of other books as well.
