NEW BOOK: 'Metal Molly' by Ariadne Tampion

http://www.metalmolly.info

This book makes ideas of machine intelligence accessible to newly-fluent young readers, through 
the story of a little girl robot called Molly who goes to school to learn.  Its characters and 
scenes are charmingly brought to life by debut illustrator Laura Buckland.

The story was originally written for the author's own daughter, and could be a useful tool for 
AISB members wishing to discuss Alan Turing's ideas with their daughters and granddaughters in 
Turing's centenary year.

Ariadne Tampion has a background in electrical engineering and has been developing an interest 
in AI since creating a character for programmer Rollo Carpenter's prizewinning chatbot Joan.
