And all too possible! As we get closer to truly AI computers, the scenario depicted in Shadow Tyrants gets closer to feasibility. Cussler and Morrison show how one power hungry individual, group, or government could easily convert a well-intentioned AI project into a genuinely frightening possibility. The fact that the AI computer in this story has a biological component and can become self-aware with essentially self-preservation instincts shows very clearly that we would do well to avoid progress along that avenue. Interesting, action packed, well-developed, well-written, well-paced and tehno-sci-fi that will hopefully never become science!!
