Friday Wisdom – Friends and a Book to Read, Twenty-four Days

I am here today with the wisdom that you should always help a friend.  A friend is someone who will help you move.  A real friend is someone who will help you move a body.

Fellow blogger, writer, teacher, and all around good person Jacqui Murray hasn’t ask me to move a body, just help her get the word out on her newly published new book, Twenty-four Days, so here is some info on it – go check it out.

The story of Twenty-four days:

A former SEAL, a brilliant scientist, a love-besotted nerd, and a quirky AI have twenty-four days to stop a terrorist attack. The problems: They don’t know what it is, where it is, or who’s involved.

I always like a good book about AI.  What is AI?  Just happen to have an answer:

An AI is an Artificial Intelligence—a machine that perceives its environment and takes actions to maximize its chance of success. It is often applied to indicate a machine that mimics cognitive functions such as “learning” and “problem solving”.

 Just to be clear: Otto does these and more. He also has adopted human habits and mannerisms that make him comfortable to be around and the preferred friend to at least one of my main characters.

While some of what Otto does is still in the realm of fiction, AI is becoming more real each day as we push the edges of computer technology.  There a number of practical AI systems deployed today and some you likely use without knowing it. 

The book is available on Kindle

    I read Jacqui’s book and enjoyed it! There are definitely some unfortunate bodies in it that will need to be moved, but luckily not by us. We just get to enjoy the story. 😄
