Rogue Intelligence Update!

So I drifted off to check on my ghost writer! The story has come along well. A few touches up here and there will be needed but thus far I enjoyed it.

To me the ending is everything, it is the last thing you leave the readers with. I want to leave you all with either one of two feelings. The first being a modest “wow” factor or the other leaving you upset and craving for more.

Both thoroughly please me! So feel free to express both when needed. EPD the end of January!

Stay tuned tomorrow for what I find to be some of the greatest concepts of writing.

Rogue Intelligence 3rd update

I decided to check in with my “ghost” to see how the story was coming along. Finally I can say a lot of much needed progress has been made!

The characters names maybe released earlier or just some creative back grounds, like the Keys to the Universe.

Which if you are out of the loop, the Keys to the Universe is the “in the know” from what you won’t get to know by reading the novel “Terran Myth: Book 1” EPD January 2015.

The short story for rogue intelligence is a fun newishly developed idea that I mention a month ago. It may eventually have 2 more features after it to combine for a novel or a novella.

January can’t get here any sooner!

Rogue Intelligence 2nd Update

Imagine yourself in-control of a warship on patrol out on the frontier of mankind’s reach into space. You with 9 others are tasked to enforce the laws and keep the peace with command over an Ancient Artificial Intelligence. Your enemies are everywhere where; ranging from pirates, corrupt governments (civil and marshal), gangs, and hostile militia forces.

You ask yourself, how does an AI make a difference with only 10 people, while only 4 of those 10 are combat oriented? Easy. Your AI companion effectively controls the whole ship, limiting the stress of command. As well this AI comes with an accompaniment of neat “toys,” at your disposal.

Your Command Assets:
-4 Company’s of Centurion Basic Combat Robots aka Androids (Droids). (800 Units)
-2 Platoons of Special Operation Advance Androids with Synthetic Skin cover. (86 units)
-Attack Fighters built for dual-purpose operation in deep-space and down in an Atmosphere. (16 units)
-Transports capable of transferring a platoon size element at a time. (4 units)
-Starship’s mounted weapons; ship to ship and orbital bombardments (OB’s are highly discouraged/last or extreme means)
-Ship Fabricators that are used to replace any units that are lost, broken, or malfunctioned.

And to top it all off you can’t call for assistance. You, your team, and the AI are all the help you will ever have. Fleet command see’s it as a waste of resources to have more than one asset teaming up on patrol. Command see one patrol ship being more than enough capable to handle any situation that can occur on the frontier.

How would you handle these situations? Could you save the innocents trapped within the grips of many hostile forces or will you play it safe and only insure things don’t get out of control.

Future use of AI in the military idea!

I embarked on a new audiobook, because what little my job requires of me could cause me to go mad from the overdose of boredom that ensues from it.

I just want to toss out an idea for a possible novel, given when I’m done with the audio book series I’ll revisit and retract this incase I preemptively stole her idea.

Inspired by Ancillary justice by Anne Leckie narrated by Celeste Ciulla

Envision here with me for just the moment. A far off future for all of us, [see there is a theme to all my stories] (sarcasm) and how the human race will handle space travel and the growing sophistication of artificial intelligence as well as many other technologies.

My brief vision is that our more advance militaries will no longer bulk up with millions of ground soldiers. Yes humans are a prime force behind a military, but what about battalions of foot soldiers, support, supply functions that could all be operated automatically by a individual AI. No, I’m not saying one AI controls the whole military, but a bunch of AI performing their assigned duties. This could go beyond a military aspect as well. As in one human, or a squad operate in the command positions over a company of AI, another for the battalion level of operation and so on an so forth.

What I dreamt up on my brief ride home, is this. Graduating from “command school,” will be our future team of commanders. Each new team of commanders will be assigned to a new AI or to older an AI. There are different types of AI ranging from supply, logistics, intelligence gathering, military, police, etc. The commanders are assigned based on how they performed in this school. The team that we will be following gets assigned to the oldest AI in the books, who most think should be scrap due to the possible mythical fears of it becoming self aware (thinking for its self without orders). At first all they are told is that They assigned for a military assignment. They are shocked to realize it’s old age. They weren’t exited when they were shipped out to relieve the current and old aged commanders, who tell them they’ll love their job, and assume their position. Meanwhile they honestly believe they’ll hate it.

This is a patrol vessel, (they are large/older vessels that keep a constant presence in their large sectors of space, meant to operate independently and undergo long tours). This position Will teach them how to be an effective team to handle unpredictable situations; pirates, police/military actions, and even space born operations. They’ll grow together while their “old man” AI will be vetting/ training them to be better commanders using his vast array of knowledge/wisdom he has gathered over his hundred/maybe thousand year existence. They of course develop a friendship for this AI who is interactive with them on human emotional levels, becoming a farther like teacher.

The secret is they’ll soon discover is that this AI is already self aware but is wise beyond years and doesn’t like to draw attention to himself. So he complies like normal, or as he calls them “the regulars.”

Remember this is just a ten minute idea. What do you think?
