Can an AI Save the World?

twenty-four daysThis week, my wonderful efriends here in the blogosphere are helping me get the word out about my second novel, Twenty-four Days. What makes this exciting for us geeks and techies–and why I think readers of Ask a Tech Teacher will like it–is that the AI (artificial intelligence) Otto introduced in To Hunt a Sub is all grown up, now a mobile speaking android who plays a critical part in solving the mysteries and saving the world:

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.

Kirkus Reviews had this to say: had this to say:

A blistering pace is set from the beginning: dates open each new chapter/section, generating a countdown that intensifies the title’s time limit. Murray skillfully bounces from scene to scene, handling numerous characters, from hijackers to MI6 special agent Haster. … A steady tempo and indelible menace form a stirring nautical tale…

I’ll be visiting blogs to chat about the book and answer questions like:

  1. Can science make a warship invisible? 
  2. Exactly how cool is Otto, the AI? 
  3. What is an ‘AI’?
  4. What pick-up line does the story’s geek,  Eitan Sun, use to attract his first wife? 
  5. Are there drones in this book? 
  6. Is the submarine’s invisibility shield like the cloak in Harry Potter? twenty-four days
  7. Do you have to read the prequel, To Hunt a Sub, to understand this book?
  8. How does Otto find submarines anywhere in the world? 
  9. Is this a romantic thriller? 
  10. Is the tech included in the book really possible? 
  11. When is Book 3 in the Rowe-Delamagente series out?

Here’s the schedule of who’ll I’ll visit. I haven’t included the question–you’ll just have to drop in to see the answer:
