What book is this?

I can't remember much of it, so I'll say what I know. It's not a well know book (to my knowledge). All I know about it is this. 

It's fiction. An A.I. takes over the world. Humans (I think) created it. The A.I. kills all but 6 (I believe 6) humans. It then uses it's knowledge and technology to keep these 6 humans alive much longer than they could live naturally. It interrogates or torture's them during their extended existence (something like that). 

Unfortunately that's all I know. Hopefully someone will know what I'm talking about, cause I have no idea what the title or who the author is.

    That's a short story "I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream" by Harlan Ellison.  It's been adapted into a computer game and comic books.
