The Nimrod Hunt - Charles Sheffield

An artificial intelligence escapes its creators, and has its own plans for what it wants to do, and it seems it is happy to be violent to get them done.

A group of alien races work together, including humans, but have different political factions, with different ideas on how to deal with this. They decide to put a cross-race team together to handle it, but political infighting continues while these teams train for their mission.

One of the members of this team is a retarded young man who undergoes treatment to bring him to normal intelligence and usefulness.
