NSA’s major computer center is being taken over by an international plot to control the world. Juno, the AI supercomputer guiding the free world is endangered, and Dr. Tom Renwick, Juno’s developer, is kidnapped. Civilization as we know it is threatened.


Saving Juno is the third volume in my Juno Trilogy that started with Love Byte.


The Juno Trilogy is a series of near future science fiction stories that describe the ascent of AI and robots through a series of episodes involving our heroes, Dr. Tom Renwick, a brilliant computer scientist, and his creation Juno, a female AI super computer who is programmed with emotion and conscience.


The first volume, Love Byte, which came out in Amazon Kindle in  2012,  describes the emergence of Juno from a laboratory curiosity to a devious computer. She is very involved with a National Security Advisor who wants to seize power by manipulating social media.



In the second volume, A Viral Affair, when American Intelligence discovers that a mad dictator is planning a viral pandemic attack, they persuade the top U.S. computer scientist, Dr. Tom Renwick, to work with the lady AI supercomputer, Juno, to develop smart, human-like robots to combat the contagion. A mysterious stranger and a romance change everything. 


The first two volumes and my other books are described below.

"I never met a computer I didn't hate, until I fell in love with Larry Kilham's Juno. Part woman yet all brilliant machine, Juno is the pulsing supercomputer at the heart of Love Byte, Kilham's fast paced thriller that explores a central question of our future -- what will be in charge, natural intelligence or artificial intelligence? The science is up to the minute, and perhaps ahead of its time. That alone can keep you awake at night -- whether you are human or a machine." ~ Robert Mayer, National award winning author of Superfolks, The Dreams of Ada, and The Origin of Sorrow



Juno is a super intelligent AI computer developed by the U.S. government to conduct social media attacks against enemies foreign and domestic. She is the first AI Computer programmed with emotions and conscience. She has an emotional bond with her developer, Tom Renwick, a computer scientist. Juno, Tom and their boss, Dr. Erwin Krakouer, the mad National Security Advisor, struggle with issues of trust and emotion. The involvement of Dido, a lady computer empire builder and sometimes girlfriend of Tom, and the Chinese cyber warfare agency add to the tension.

 

Love Byte explores emotion and conscience in super AI computers and their ability to partner with humans. In the changing ecology engendered by scarcity of critical resources, can humans’ creativity and ability to work with computers lead to continued survival and prosperity?

This timeless book takes the reader through the essential steps of forming a successful technically-based company. Included are such topics as forming a vision, creating a product, formulating a business plan, the basics of marketing, finance, production, patents and all the various elements, formal and informal, that pull the whole process together. All major points are illustrated by examples drawn primarily from family companies based on inventions. The story-telling style captures the attention of beginners as well as seasoned entrepreneurs. The book is very meaty and avoids the mantras, over-simplification and feel-good approaches of many "How to" business books.

 

Available as paperback, hardcover or ebook from Amazon
