I read a book on kindle unlimited back in 2014, at that point it was a two series set with more to come. In it, was two dolphins that were able to talk using a translation Matrix powered by IBM machines. I also remember a character called clay who was a military man. And I remember in one of the books, water was being stolen from the ocean by aliens. There was also an incident when a monkey was lost in the jungle and they used the translation matrix for it too.
