The simple reason is that I’ve been concentrating on my day job. The longer explanation is that I’ve been learning about AI, neural networking, and generative pre-trained transformers. I’m especially interested in the concepts of objective immutable truths, subjective immutable truths, and how to maintain “truthiness” over many natural language models.
The StrikeForce books have always been a bit of Elmore Leonard, a dash of modern technothriller, an homage to the sixties and seventies action-adventure novels, and a generous helping of tongue-in-cheek sci-fi humor. But, because the question of “truthiness” is fundamental to the concept of a rouge AI, I’ve been deep-diving into AI instead of writing the book.
