Summary

Superintelligence asks the questions: What happens when machines surpass humans in general intelligence? Will artificial agents save or destroy us? Nick Bostrom lays the foundation for understanding the future of humanity and intelligent life. The human brain has some capabilities that the brains of other animals lack. It is to these distinctive capabilities that our species owes its dominant position. If machine brains surpassed human brains in general intelligence, then this new superintelligence could become extremely powerful - possibly beyond our control. As the fate of the gorillas now depends more on humans than on the species itself, so would the fate of humankind depend on the actions of the machine superintelligence. But we have one advantage: We get to make the first move. Will it be possible to construct a seed Artificial Intelligence, to engineer initial conditions so as to make an intelligence explosion survivable? How could one achieve a controlled detonation? This profoundly ambitious and original book breaks down a vast track of difficult intellectual terrain. After an utterly engrossing journey that takes us to the frontiers of thinking about the human condition and the future of intelligent life, we find in Nick Bostrom's work nothing less than a reconceptualization of the essential task of our time.

The Alignment Problem

7 ratings

Summary

A jaw-dropping exploration of everything that goes wrong when we build AI systems and the movement to fix them. Today’s “machine-learning” systems, trained by data, are so effective that we’ve invited them to see and hear for us - and to make decisions on our behalf. But alarm bells are ringing. Recent years have seen an eruption of concern as the field of machine learning advances. When the systems we attempt to teach will not, in the end, do what we want or what we expect, ethical and potentially existential risks emerge. Researchers call this the alignment problem. Systems cull résumés until, years later, we discover that they have inherent gender biases. Algorithms decide bail and parole - and appear to assess Black and White defendants differently. We can no longer assume that our mortgage application, or even our medical tests, will be seen by human eyes. And as autonomous vehicles share our streets, we are increasingly putting our lives in their hands. The mathematical and computational models driving these changes range in complexity from something that can fit on a spreadsheet to a complex system that might credibly be called “artificial intelligence.” They are steadily replacing both human judgment and explicitly programmed software. In best-selling author Brian Christian’s riveting account, we meet the alignment problem’s “first-responders,” and learn their ambitious plan to solve it before our hands are completely off the wheel. In a masterful blend of history and on-the-ground reporting, Christian traces the explosive growth in the field of machine learning and surveys its current, sprawling frontier. Listeners encounter a discipline finding its legs amid exhilarating and sometimes terrifying progress. Whether they - and we - succeed or fail in solving the alignment problem will be a defining human story. The Alignment Problem offers an unflinching reckoning with humanity’s biases and blind spots, our own unstated assumptions and often contradictory goals. A dazzlingly interdisciplinary work, it takes a hard look not only at our technology but at our culture - and finds a story by turns harrowing and hopeful.

Insider Threats Meet Access Control: Insider Threats Detected Using Intent-Based Access Control (IBAC)

Summary

Existing access control mechanisms are based on the concepts of identity enrollment and recognition and assume that recognized identity is synonymous with ethical actions. However, statistics over the years show that the most severe security breaches have been the results of trusted, authorized, and identified users who turned into malicious insiders. Therefore, demand exists for designing prevention mechanisms. A non-identity-based authentication measure that is based on the intent of the access request might serve that demand. In this book, we test the possibility of detecting intention of access using involuntary electroencephalogram (EEG) reactions to visual stimuli. This method takes advantage of the robustness of the Concealed Information Test to detect intentions. Next, we test the possibility of detecting motivation of access, as motivation level corresponds directly to the likelihood of intent execution level. Subsequently, we propose and design Intent-based Access Control (IBAC), a non-identity-based access control system that assesses the risk associated with the detected intentions and motivation levels. We then study the potential of IBAC in denying access to authorized individuals who have malicious plans to commit maleficent acts. Based on the access risk and the accepted threshold established by the asset owners, the system decides whether to grant or deny access requests.We assessed the intent detection component of the IBAC system using experiments on 30 participants and achieved accuracy of 100 percent using Nearest Neighbor and SVM classifiers. Further, we assessed the motivation detection component of the IBAC system. Results show different levels of motivation between hesitation-based vs. motivation-based intentions. Finally, the potential of IBAC in preventing insider threats by calculating the risk of access using intentions and motivation levels as per the experiments shows access risk that is different between unmotivated and motivated groups.

Summary

The world's most infamous hacker offers an insider's view of the low-tech threats to high-tech security. Kevin Mitnick's exploits as a cyber-desperado and fugitive form one of the most exhaustive FBI manhunts in history and have spawned dozens of articles, books, films, and documentaries. Since his release from federal prison, in 1998, Mitnick has turned his life around and established himself as one of the most sought-after computer security experts worldwide. Now, in The Art of Deception, the world's most notorious hacker gives new meaning to the old adage, "It takes a thief to catch a thief."   Focusing on the human factors involved with information security, Mitnick explains why all the firewalls and encryption protocols in the world will never be enough to stop a savvy grifter intent on rifling a corporate database or an irate employee determined to crash a system. With the help of many fascinating true stories of successful attacks on business and government, he illustrates just how susceptible even the most locked-down information systems are to a slick con artist impersonating an IRS agent.  Narrating from the points of view of both the attacker and the victims, he explains why each attack was so successful and how it could have been prevented in an engaging and highly readable style reminiscent of a true-crime novel. And, perhaps most importantly, Mitnick offers advice for preventing these types of social engineering hacks through security protocols, training programs, and manuals that address the human element of security.

The Big Nine

22 ratings

Summary

A call-to-arms about the broken nature of artificial intelligence, and the powerful corporations that are turning the human-machine relationship on its head. We like to think that we are in control of the future of "artificial" intelligence. The reality, though, is that we - the everyday people whose data powers AI - aren't actually in control of anything. When, for example, we speak with Alexa, we contribute that data to a system we can't see and have no input into - one largely free from regulation or oversight. The big nine corporations - Amazon, Google, Facebook, Tencent, Baidu, Alibaba, Microsoft, IBM and Apple - are the new gods of AI and are short-changing our futures to reap immediate financial gain.  In this book, Amy Webb reveals the pervasive, invisible ways in which the foundations of AI - the people working on the system, their motivations, the technology itself - is broken. Within our lifetimes, AI will, by design, begin to behave unpredictably, thinking and acting in ways which defy human logic. The big nine corporations may be inadvertently building and enabling vast arrays of intelligent systems that don't share our motivations, desires, or hopes for the future of humanity. Much more than a passionate, human-centered call-to-arms, this book delivers a strategy for changing course, and provides a path for liberating us from algorithmic decision-makers and powerful corporations.

Possible Minds

Summary

Science-world luminary John Brockman assembles 25 of the most important scientific minds, people who have been thinking about the field of artificial intelligence for most of their careers, for an unparalleled roundtable examination about mind, thinking, intelligence, and what it means to be human.  "Artificial intelligence is today's story - the story behind all other stories. It is the Second Coming and the Apocalypse at the same time: Good AI versus evil AI." (John Brockman)  More than 60 years ago, mathematician-philosopher Norbert Wiener published a book on the place of machines in society that ended with a warning: "We shall never receive the right answers to our questions unless we ask the right questions.... The hour is very late, and the choice of good and evil knocks at our door." In the wake of advances in unsupervised, self-improving machine learning, a small but influential community of thinkers is considering Wiener's words again. In Possible Minds, John Brockman gathers their disparate visions of where AI might be taking us.  The fruit of the long history of Brockman's profound engagement with the most important scientific minds who have been thinking about AI - from Alison Gopnik and David Deutsch to Frank Wilczek and Stephen Wolfram - Possible Minds is an ideal introduction to the landscape of crucial issues AI presents. The collision between opposing perspectives is salutary and exhilarating; some of these figures, such as computer scientist Stuart Russell, Skype cofounder Jaan Tallinn, and physicist Max Tegmark, are deeply concerned with the threat of AI, including the existential one, while others, notably robotics entrepreneur Rodney Brooks, philosopher Daniel Dennett, and best-selling author Steven Pinker, have a very different view. Serious, searching, and authoritative, Possible Minds lays out the intellectual landscape of one of the most important topics of our time.  Read by Jason Culp, Rob Shapiro, Vikas Adam, Will Damron, and Kathleen McInerney.

Summary

"The most important book on AI this year." (The Guardian) "Mr. Russell's exciting book goes deep, while sparkling with dry witticisms." (The Wall Street Journal) "The most important book I have read in quite some time" (Daniel Kahneman) "A must-read" (Max Tegmark) "The book we've all been waiting for" (Sam Harris) A leading artificial intelligence researcher lays out a new approach to AI that will enable us to coexist successfully with increasingly intelligent machines. In the popular imagination, superhuman artificial intelligence is an approaching tidal wave that threatens not just jobs and human relationships, but civilization itself. Conflict between humans and machines is seen as inevitable and its outcome all too predictable. In this groundbreaking audiobook, distinguished AI researcher Stuart Russell argues that this scenario can be avoided, but only if we rethink AI from the ground up. Russell begins by exploring the idea of intelligence in humans and in machines. He describes the near-term benefits we can expect, from intelligent personal assistants to vastly accelerated scientific research, and outlines the AI breakthroughs that still have to happen before we reach superhuman AI. He also spells out the ways humans are already finding to misuse AI, from lethal autonomous weapons to viral sabotage. If the predicted breakthroughs occur and superhuman AI emerges, we will have created entities far more powerful than ourselves. How can we ensure they never, ever, have power over us? Russell suggests that we can rebuild AI on a new foundation, according to which machines are designed to be inherently uncertain about the human preferences they are required to satisfy. Such machines would be humble, altruistic, and committed to pursue our objectives, not theirs. This new foundation would allow us to create machines that are provably deferential and provably beneficial.

Summary

In Artificial Unintelligence, Meredith Broussard argues that our collective enthusiasm for applying computer technology to every aspect of life has resulted in a tremendous amount of poorly designed systems. We are so eager to do everything digitally - hiring, driving, paying bills, even choosing romantic partners - that we have stopped demanding that our technology actually work. Broussard, a software developer and journalist, reminds us that there are fundamental limits to what we can (and should) do with technology.  Making a case against technochauvinism - the belief that technology is always the solution - Broussard argues that it's just not true that social problems would inevitably retreat before a digitally enabled Utopia. To prove her point, she undertakes a series of adventures in computer programming. She goes for an alarming ride in a driverless car; uses artificial intelligence to investigate why students can't pass standardized tests; deploys machine learning to predict which passengers survived the Titanic disaster; and attempts to repair the US campaign finance system by building AI software. If we understand the limits of what we can do with technology, Broussard tells us, we can make better choices about what we should do with it to make the world better for everyone.  PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

The Simulation Hypothesis: An MIT Computer Scientist Shows Why AI, Quantum Physics, and Eastern Mystics All Agree We Are in a Video Game

15 ratings

Summary

The Simulation Hypothesis, by best-selling author, renowned MIT computer scientist, and Silicon Valley video game designer Rizwan Virk, explains one of the most daring and consequential theories of our time. Drawing from research and concepts from computer science, artificial intelligence, video games, quantum physics, and referencing both speculative fiction and ancient eastern spiritual texts, Virk shows how all of these traditions come together to point to the idea that we may be inside a simulated reality like the Matrix. The Simulation Hypothesis is the idea that our physical reality, far from being a solid physical universe, is part of an increasingly sophisticated video game-like simulation, where we all have multiple lives, consisting of pixels with its own internal clock run by some giant Artificial Intelligence. Simulation theory explains some of the biggest mysteries of quantum and relativistic physics, such as quantum indeterminacy, parallel universes, and the integral nature of the speed of light. “There’s a one in a billion chance we are not living in a simulation.” (Elon Musk) “I find it hard to argue we are not in a simulation.” (Neil deGrasse Tyson) “We are living in computer generated reality.” (Philip K. Dick) Video game designer Riz Virk shows how the history and evolution of our video games, including virtual reality, augmented reality, artificial intelligence, and quantum computing could lead us to the point of being able to develop all encompassing virtual worlds like the Oasis in Ready Player One, or the simulated reality in The Matrix. While the idea sounds like science fiction, many scientists, engineers, and professors have given the simulation hypothesis serious consideration. But the simulation hypothesis is not just a modern idea. Philosophers and mystics of all traditions have long contended that we are living in some kind of “illusion“ and that there are other realities which we can access with our minds. Whether you are a computer scientist, a fan of science fiction like The Matrix movies, a video game enthusiast, or a spiritual seeker, The Simulation Hypothesis touches on all these areas, and you will never look at the world the same way again!

From iconic books like Neuromancer to blockbuster films like The Matrix, virtual reality has long been hailed as the ultimate technology. But outside of a few research labs and military training facilities, this tantalizing vision of the future was nothing but science fiction. Until 2012, when Oculus founder Palmer Luckey - then just a rebellious teenage dreamer living alone in a camper trailer - invents a device that has the potential to change everything. With the help of a video game legend, a serial entrepreneur, and many other colorful characters, Luckey’s scrappy start-up kick-starts a revolution and sets out to bring VR to the masses. As with most underdog stories, things don’t quite go according to plan. But what happens next turns out to be the ultimate entrepreneurial journey: a tale of battles won and lost, lessons learned, and never-ending twists and turns - including an unlikely multibillion-dollar acquisition by Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg that shakes up the landscape in Silicon Valley and gives Oculus the chance to forever change our reality. Drawing on more than 100 interviews with the key players driving this revolution, The History of the Future weaves together a rich, cinematic narrative that captures the breakthroughs, breakdowns, and human drama of trying to change the world. The result is a super accessible and supremely entertaining look at the birth of a game-changing new industry.  PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

The Tree with Many Branches

Summary

Want to build an evolutionary tree? Here’s your chance to learn how.  The field of bioinformatics was born out of the need to manage, analyze, and examine raw genomic data in meaningful and exciting ways, such as the discipline of computational phylogenetics would provide.  The evolutionary inferences reached among the several peer-reviewed articles contained in this book are neither novel nor breakthrough. However, it is in the application of computational techniques, experiment design, and probabilistic models where this research finds a stronghold. As a matter of practicality, the original manuscripts have been edited for a broader audience due to its highly technical language.  The essays compiled in this audiobook have undergone a facelift, from the original scientific format into a more listener-friendly layout, so as to better accommodate two different perspectives - both experts and nonexperts alike.

Summary

Are you interested in Machine Learning? Are you fascinated by how robots work? Are you ready to open up to the dynamics of technological change? Machine Learning has been approached in a definitive manner as a subset falling under a larger set of artificial intelligence. It majorly focuses on the aspect of learning of machines basing on the experience and predicting consequences and actions of the machines that revolve around their experience in the past. The field has made it easy for computers and machines to enact decisions that are data driven instead of explicit programming with regard to a particular task. The algorithms and programs are designed to enable machines and computers to learn by themselves. With time, they get to improve when there is an introduction of new and unique data. The learning process applies the use of training data that sustains the coming up of a model. Insertion of new data brings up predictions that are based on the model. This means that machines are given the capability to foretell on their own. The predictions are then examined closely to identify their accuracy. If accuracy receives positive feedback, then the machine learning algorithm is trained over and over again through the assistance of a data training augmented set. Machine learning tasks are broken into various wider categories. Supervised learning aims at coming up with a model that is mathematics of a data set with desired inputs and outputs. Semi-supervised learning aims at coming up with mathematical models from incomplete data training. You will realize that sample inputs miss expected/desired output in such a case. This audiobook will help you understand more about Deep Machine Learning. In the sections of this audiobook, you will be able to get important chapters that include: History of machine learning The benefits The challenges you may encounter Applications of machine learning Artificial intelligence Big data And much more! With such knowledge, you will be able to embrace technological advancements and be ready for the future. Get a copy of Deep Machine Learning today and get to discover the secrets into technology!

Who's Afraid of AI?

Summary

A penetrating guide to artificial intelligence: what it is, what it does, and how it will change our lives At a breathtaking pace, artificial intelligence is getting better and faster at making complex decisions. AI can already identify malignant tumors on CT scans, give legal advice, out-bluff the best poker players in the world, and, with ever-increasing skill, drive our cars. In Who’s Afraid of AI?, award-winning author Thomas Ramge expertly explains how machines are learning to learn, and he questions what today’s explosion of AI capability could mean for tomorrow: Is it ethical to allow robots - endlessly patient - to replace human caregivers in providing comfort and companionship to the elderly? Since AI feeds on big data, can we prevent its misuse by corporations or the government? Will AI ever be capable of runaway self-improvement? And if “the singularity” does arrive, with AI’s intelligence exponentially outpacing our own, what will become of us when, in many ways, we’re obsolete?

Summary

For decades, proponents of artificial intelligence have argued that computers will soon be doing everything that a human mind can do. Admittedly, computers now play chess at the grandmaster level, but do they understand the game as we do? Can a computer eventually do everything a human mind can do? In this absorbing and frequently contentious book, Roger Penrose puts forward his view that there are some facets of human thinking that can never be emulated by a machine. The book's central concern is what philosophers call the "mind-body problem". Penrose examines what physics and mathematics can tell us about how the mind works, what they can't, and what we need to know to understand the physical processes of consciousness. He is among a growing number of physicists who think Einstein wasn't being stubborn when he said his "little finger" told him that quantum mechanics is incomplete, and he concludes that laws even deeper than quantum mechanics are essential for the operation of a mind. To support this contention, Penrose takes the listener on a dazzling tour that covers such topics as complex numbers, Turing machines, complexity theory, quantum mechanics, formal systems, Godel undecidability, phase spaces, Hilbert spaces, black holes, white holes, Hawking radiation, entropy, quasicrystals, and the structure of the brain.

Summary

For a physicist, all the world is information. The universe and its workings are the ebb and flow of information. We are all transient patterns of information, passing on the recipe for our basic forms to future generations using a four-letter digital code called DNA.In this engaging and mind-stretching account, Vlatko Vedral considers some of the deepest questions about the universe and considers the implications of interpreting it in terms of information. He explains the nature of information, the idea of entropy, and the roots of this thinking in thermodynamics.He also describes the bizarre effects of quantum behaviour - effects such as "entanglement", which Einstein called "spooky action at a distance", and explores cutting-edge work on harnessing quantum effects in hyperfast quantum computers, and how recent evidence suggests that the weirdness of the quantum world, once thought limited to the tiniest scales, may reach into the macro world.Vedral finishes by considering the answer to the ultimate question: where did all of the information in the universe come from? The answers he considers are exhilarating, drawing upon the work of distinguished physicist John Wheeler. The ideas challenge our concept of the nature of particles, of time, of determinism, and of reality itself.

Summary

Do you want to understand machine learning? How it works and how is correlated to artificial intelligence and deep learning? If yes, then keep reading.... Machine Learning is based on mathematics, specifically statistics. It is a probabilistic discipline that began in the 1950s. Despite initial enthusiasm, research and development in Machine Learning languished for over 30 years, suffering from twin ills of a lack of data to work with and computers that were too slow to effectively work with what data they had. It is no accident Machine Learning is coming into its own over the last 10 years. Until we began creating and storing massive amounts of data about our world, Machine Learning was mostly an idea in the minds of statisticians. And until computers reached a level of speed and power where these massive data sets could be ingested in a reasonable amount of time, the revolution couldn’t happen. Most machine learning technology is developed in such a way that it is excellent at performing one or, at most, two tasks. By focusing entire technology on one single task, they can ensure that it runs that task perfectly and that it does not get confused between the tasks that it is trying to accomplish. It is likely that as we become more familiar with machine learning technology and more educated in the algorithms, we will start to see more and more machines completing multiple tasks, rather than just one. This audiobook gives a comprehensive guide on the following: What is machine learning? Machine learning categories Sectors and industries that use machine learning Fundamental algorithms Regression analysis Benefits of machine learning Deep learning Deep neural network Big data analytics Big data analysis tools How companies use big data Data mining and applications And more!

Summary

From Oxford's leading AI researcher comes a fun and accessible tour through the history and future of one of the most cutting edge and misunderstood field in science: artificial intelligence The somewhat ill-defined long-term aim of AI is to build machines that are conscious, self-aware, and sentient; machines capable of the kind of intelligent autonomous action that currently only people are capable of. As an AI researcher with 25 years of experience, professor Mike Wooldridge has learned to be obsessively cautious about such claims, while still promoting an intense optimism about the future of the field. There have been genuine scientific breakthroughs that have made AI systems possible in the past decade that the founders of the field would have hailed as miraculous. Driverless cars and automated translation tools are just two examples of AI technologies that have become a practical, everyday reality in the past few years, and which will have a huge impact on our world. While the dream of conscious machines remains, Professor Wooldridge believes, a distant prospect, the floodgates for AI have opened. Wooldridge's A Brief History of Artificial Intelligence is an exciting romp through the history of this groundbreaking field - a one-stop-shop for AI's past, present, and world-changing future.

Summary

Do you want to learn how machine learning and AI can be applied in practice and be compatible with human behavior in modern times? If yes, then keep reading... Machine learning is a data-driven approach. Hence, it implies the availability of large datasets in order to make accurate decisions. The way a machine learning approach works is that a modeler develops a learning algorithm. Then the modeler feeds the learning algorithm with the data and information. The algorithm learns by itself from the data with no guidance or human interference. If the data provided for the algorithm is of poor quality and biased, even the system will be. Hence, cleaning and acquiring the right data to solve a problem with machine learning problem is very crucial. Could turning important decisions over to AI help humanity? Some might say that's a terrible idea, but how much worse is it today where we've turned over our societies and civilizations to corrupt leadership, crony capitalism, or had to deal with rogue nation states in other parts of the world with two bit dictators, religious fanaticism, or the quest to destroy another group of peoples' civilization? Perhaps, it's time we came up with a special think tank that could go through all the issues concerning our fears and what we hope to expect from AI decision-making machines. That is to say how to get the best possible answer all the time with the greatest probability. This audiobook gives comprehensive information on the following chapters: Correlation Between Machine Learning and Artificial Learning The Era of Evolution Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence in Practice Self-Driving Cars Robots and How They Will Change Our Lives Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence and IoT Ethics of Artificial Intelligence Artificial Intelligence and Privacy Is Artificial Intelligence Dangerous?

L'Intelligence artitificelle n'existe pas

Summary

Le document rare et l'incroyable parcours d'un inventeur français, qui à l'âge de neuf ans avait déjà construit un robot pour faire son lit et a ensuite été l'un des deux créateurs de Siri. Son objectif ici : tordre le cou aux idées reçues et aux fantasmes qui entourent l'IA aujourd'hui. Vous ne comprenez rien à l'intelligence artificielle (IA) ? Vous avez peur que de méchants robots prennent le pouvoir et finissent par contrôler le monde ? Vous vous intéressez à l'IA et aux nouvelles technologies, mais vous aimeriez entendre un autre son de cloche ? Alors ce livre audio est pour vous ! "Tout est parti d'un immense malentendu. En 1956, lors de la conférence de Dartmouth, John McCarthy a convaincu ses collègues d'employer l'expression "intelligence artificielle" pour décrire une discipline qui n'avait rien à voir avec l'intelligence. Tous les fantasmes et les fausses idées dont on nous abreuve aujourd'hui découlent de cette appellation malheureuse. Dans ce livre audio, je vous invite à me suivre, de mon petit village près de Toulouse à la Silicon Valley, sur les traces de cette fameuse "intelligence artificielle" à propos de laquelle on entend dire tant de bêtises, pour comprendre de quoi il s'agit exactement et anticiper ce qu'elle peut nous réserver à l'avenir. Car aujourd'hui je l'affirme haut et fort : l'intelligence artificielle n'existe pas !" Dr. Julia Luc est l'un des deux créateurs de l'assistant vocal d'Apple, Siri. Il est aujourd'hui Senior Vice-président et Chief Technical Officer du tout nouveau laboratoire d'intelligence artificielle de Samsung (SAIL) à Paris.

Summary

Artificial Intelligence is likely to greatly increase our aggregate wealth, but it will also upend our labor markets, reshuffle our social order, and strain our private and public institutions. Eventually it may alter how we see our place in the universe, as machines pursue goals independent of their creators and outperform us in domains previously believed to be the sole dominion of humans. Whether we regard them as conscious or unwitting, revere them as a new form of life or dismiss them as mere clever appliances, is beside the point. They are likely to play an increasingly critical and intimate role in many aspects of our lives. The emergence of systems capable of independent reasoning and action raises serious questions about just whose interests they are permitted to serve, and what limits our society should place on their creation and use. Deep ethical questions that have bedeviled philosophers for ages will suddenly arrive on the steps of our courthouses. And the answers may surprise you.

Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach

Summary

Artificial intelligence is a phrase that carries with it heavy connotations. Although artificial intelligence is nothing more than the capacity for logic and understanding that machines can exhibit, in the minds of most Americans artificial intelligence is almost a Pandora’s box that, when opened, will eventually signal the human race’s doom....

The idea that machines pose an existential threat to human beings has been around for at least 60 years. It goes something like this: intelligent machines eventually realize the uselessness of human beings and turn against their creators. Or this: intelligent machines reduce human to cattle or even food after a dramatic war that human beings lose. 

Human beings have created countless languages and writing systems that have allowed us to expand collective human knowledge over a period of thousands of years. Much of the knowledge that we utilized today, knowledge about the math, science, and the stars, originates from observations made thousands of years ago but which were recorded by writing systems, allowing this knowledge to be preserved and passed down. 

Artificial intelligence has been used for many business, financial, medical, and other applications, and scientists and researchers are actively studying how these applications can be expanded to make human life simpler. 

The applications of AI will be explored in this book, both the real applications to business, finance, medicine, and health and the theoretical applications. Even the sensational, perhaps exaggerated applications of AI will be explored in the context of taking a look at how AI may potentially be applied in the future. The purpose of this discussion is for the reader to understand what AI is by understanding how it is used. 

Artificial intelligence is certainly a blessing at this point, but the reality that it may become a curse is not lost on some people. Understanding the full implications of AI requires a deep knowledge of what it is and where it came from. 

For companies and businesses to take advantage of AI-powered and improved interactions, the conversation has to begin inside the organization. Leaders are supposed to start with the available channels and improve their smartness. From that point, they are supposed to ask key questions about engagements with customers and employees. 

Here is a preview of what you will learn....

Summary

Two leaders in the field offer a compelling analysis of the current state of the art and reveal the steps we must take to achieve a truly robust artificial intelligence. Despite the hype surrounding AI, creating an intelligence that rivals or exceeds human levels is far more complicated than we have been led to believe. Professors Gary Marcus and Ernest Davis have spent their careers at the forefront of AI research and have witnessed some of the greatest milestones in the field, but they argue that a computer beating a human in Jeopardy! does not signal that we are on the doorstep of fully autonomous cars or superintelligent machines. The achievements in the field thus far have occurred in closed systems with fixed sets of rules, and these approaches are too narrow to achieve genuine intelligence. The real world, in contrast, is wildly complex and open-ended. How can we bridge this gap? What will the consequences be when we do? Taking inspiration from the human mind, Marcus and Davis explain what we need to advance AI to the next level, and suggest that if we are wise along the way, we won't need to worry about a future of machine overlords. If we focus on endowing machines with common sense and deep understanding, rather than simply focusing on statistical analysis and gathering ever-larger collections of data, we will be able to create an AI we can trust - in our homes, our cars, and our doctors' offices. Rebooting AI provides a lucid, clear-eyed assessment of the current science and offers an inspiring vision of how a new generation of AI can make our lives better.

Summary

In our distant past, we attempted to create wealth by turning everyday substances into gold. This was early alchemy, and ultimately it did not work. But the world has changed. Today we have a type of "modern alchemy" that really can create gold. We can transform voluminous text into a wealth of knowledge. Text is a common fabric of society, yet it is still challenging for our technology to make sense of text. This is where taxonomies can help. In this book, Bill Inmon will introduce you to the concept of taxonomies and how they are used to simplify and understand text. We emphasize the practical aspects of taxonomies, and the subsequent usage of taxonomies as a basis for textual analytics. This book is for managers who have to deal with text, students of computer science, programmers who need to understand taxonomies, systems analysts who hope to draw business value out of a body of text, and especially those who are struggling to decode data lakes. Hopefully for those individuals (and many more), this book will serve as both an introduction to taxonomies and a guide to how taxonomies can be used to bring text into the realm of corporate decision-making. This book will introduce you to the world of taxonomies, as well as explore: Simple and complex taxonomies Ontologies Obtaining taxonomies Changing taxonomies Taxonomies and data models Types of textual data Textual analytics In addition, several case studies are presented from industries as diverse as banking, call centers, and travel.

If you're at the beginner's stage and are looking to gain new knowledge about machine learning, then keep reading.... Do not listen to this audiobook if you're looking for a boring textbook containing a lot of dry math and programming lingo. Every day, someone is giving up on learning about machine learning. Many people miss out on furthering their career, and perhaps even the progress of our species without even realizing You see, most beginners make the same mistakes when first delving into the topic of machine learning. They start off with a resource containing too many unrelatable facts, math, and programming lingo that will put them to sleep rather than ignite their passion. But that is all about to change. This new book on machine learning will explain the concepts, methods, and history behind machine learning, including how our computers became vastly more powerful but infinitely less intelligent than ever before and why every tech company and their grandmother want to keep track of us 24/7, siphoning data points from our electronic devices to be crunched by their programs that then try to become virtual crystal balls, predicting our thoughts before we even have them.  Most of the book seems like science-fiction because, in a sense, it is, far beyond what an average person would be willing to believe is happening.  Here are some of the topics that are discussed in this book: What machine learning is What the point of machine learning is History of machine learning Neural networks Matching the human brain Artificial Intelligence AI in literature Talking, walking robots Self-driving cars Personal voice-activated assistants Data mining Social networks And much more!

Do you want to learn a modern approach to artificial intelligence the basics of AI and how to put it into practice? If yes, then keep reading... The basic concept of artificial intelligence is quite easy to understand because it's in the name. Artificial intelligence is intelligence that has been created by hand and not...? Artificial intelligence is intelligence that is not like real intelligence? Artificial intelligence is a machine attempting to emulate biological intelligence?  Actually, the concept of artificial intelligence is quite difficult to nail down to a specific definition. All right, the basic way that we understand artificial intelligence is an intelligence that is produced by a machine. This has been the standard definition for about a century.  The reason why it is difficult to conceptualize a specific definition of artificial intelligence is that of how blurred the line is between biological intelligence and mechanical intelligence.This book aims to provide examples of the ways that the development and adaptation of artificial intelligence will open up new opportunities and challenges to both the business world and society, as a whole. For this reason, you won’t find a lot of detailed explanations of the technical aspects of AI here. However, at the end of this book, you can research other resources that you can consult if you’d like to dive deeper into the technical world of artificial intelligence.The idea that computers or software programs can both learn and make decisions is particularly significant and something that we should be aware of, as their processes are growing exponentially over time. Because of these two skills, AI systems can now accomplish many of the tasks that were once reserved for humans. AI-based technologies are already being used to help humans benefit from significant improvements and increased efficiency in nearly every area of life.  As the development of AI continues to grow, it will change the ways we live and work more and more. Another benefit of AI is that it allows machines and robots to perform tasks that humans consider to be difficult, boring, or dangerous. In turn, this will enable humankind to do things that were once thought impossible. One drawback to AI technologies is that machines will also be able to perform many tasks that currently require a human touch, which will significantly disrupt the labor market. AI also has the potential to cause political power struggles. We’ll cover lots of these topics in the chapters of this book. This audiobook gives comprehensive information on the following: What is artificial intelligence? The history of AI Essentials of data Artificial intelligent systems Chatbots Robotics Speech recognition AI FAQs AI myths Future prospects  And much more! AI can be applied to just about every situation and offers the possibility of transforming our experiences, making things better and more effective. What are you waiting for?

Summary

"Mike Kanaan is an influential new voice in the field of AI, and his thoughts paint an insightful perspective. A thought-provoking read." Eric Schmidt, former CEO and executive chairman of Google Late in 2017, the conversation about the global impact of artificial intelligence (AI) changed forever. China delivered a bold message when it released a national plan to dominate all aspects of AI across the planet. Within weeks, Russia's Vladimir Putin raised the stakes by declaring AI the future for all humankind, and proclaiming that, "Whoever becomes the leader in this sphere will become the ruler of the world." The race was on. Consistent with their unique national agendas, countries throughout the world began plotting their paths and hurrying their pace. Now, not long after, the race has become a sprint. Despite everything at risk, for most of us AI remains shrouded by a cloud of mystery and misunderstanding. Hidden behind complex technical terms and confused even further by extravagant depictions in science fiction, the realities of AI and its profound implications are hard to decipher, but no less crucial to understand. In T-Minus AI: Humanity's Countdown to Artificial Intelligence and the New Pursuit of Global Power, author Michael Kanaan explains the realities of AI from a human-oriented perspective that's easy to comprehend. A recognized national expert and the U.S. Air Force's first Chairperson for Artificial Intelligence, Kanaan weaves a compelling new view on our history of innovation and technology to masterfully explain what each of us should know about modern computing, AI, and machine learning. Kanaan also illuminates the global implications of AI by highlighting the cultural and national vulnerabilities already exposed and the pressing issues now squarely on the table. AI has already become China's all-purpose tool to impose authoritarian influence around the world. Russia, playing catch up, is weaponizing AI through its military systems and now infamous, aggressive efforts to disrupt democracy by whatever disinformation means possible. America and like-minded nations are awakening to these new realities, and the paths they're electing to follow echo loudly, in most cases, the political foundations and moral imperatives upon which they were formed. As we march toward a future far different than ever imagined, T-Minus AI is fascinating and critically well-timed. It leaves the fiction behind, paints the alarming implications of AI for what they actually are, and calls for unified action to protect fundamental human rights and dignities for all.

The (Neo) Singularity Is Here!: Volume 1: The AI Question

Summary

For the past decade or more, experts in artificial intelligence (AI) have been concerned with the advent of "the Singularity", that moment when machine intelligence equals and then rapidly surpasses human capabilities. In the first volume of his book on this topic, Frank White argues that a version of the Singularity may have already taken place (the Neosingularity). While we have been looking at the future, we have perhaps ignored the need to make AI policy in the present.

Summary

Meet the visionaries, billionaires, professors, and programmers who are using groundbreaking technology to push the limits of the human body - our senses, our intelligence, and our lifespans Once relegated to the fringes of society, transhumanism (the use of technology to enhance human intellectual and physical capability) is now poised to enter our cultural mainstream. It has found adherents in Silicon Valley billionaires Ray Kurzweil and Peter Diamandis. Google has entered the picture, establishing a biotech subsidiary aimed at solving the problem of aging. In To Be a Machine, journalist Mark O'Connell takes a headlong dive into this burgeoning movement. He travels to the laboratories, conferences, and basements of today's foremost transhumanists, where he's presented with the staggering possibilities and moral quandaries of new technologies like mind uploading, artificial superintelligence, cryonics, and device implants. A contributor to Slate, The New Yorker, and The New York Times Magazine, O'Connell serves as a sharp and lively guide to the outer limits of technology in the 21st century. In investigating what it means to be a machine, he offers a surprising, singular meditation on what it means to be human.

Summary

Are you thinking that as much as we want to look for logical frameworks for intelligence, there is no certainty or scientific proof that intelligence is as structured as we believe it to be?  As in the evolutionary process, where chaos and order wisely coexist, I see a research gap related to our brain and mind typically related to focusing on models based solely on order.  But if we are researching artificial intelligence, why are we so attached to the order and models that are supposed to be those of our brain?  Or, what binds us so much to what we see only, without opening spaces to what we don't see, if only to consider them small pieces of chaos?  In this openness and vision, when it comes to intelligence, I propose a new concept: that of unstructured intelligence, which I will try to explain in this book. In this book, you will learn: Automatic learning Machine learning paradigms Inductive learning Induction of decision trees The relevance of attributes Algorithms Cluster And much more.... I think one of the main reasons for AI's long winter was that we went deep into it, creating architectures focused on existing paradigms, with little investment in new technologies and standards, such as machine learning itself.  But are we aren't repeating the same mistake in this new wave of AI?  If so, I consider the main mistake too much focus on artificial neural network architectures, as if this was the solution to solving complex learning problems in the human pattern or even the main door to generic artificial intelligence with semantic analysis capabilities.  And a possible solution to avoid the same history of past failure, perhaps, is to tackle high complexity real-world learning problems collectively and collaboratively, such as creating AI systems that can teach them to learn for themselves, like us humans.  So the architecture that seems to be the most logical for such problems is precisely the hybrid, where we have the most varied types of learning. In fact, before we are born, we are already learning in a hybrid way, with labeled and unlabeled data, by its very nature, and all its mechanisms of evolution. You may think that you don't remember any important labeled data when you were a baby or child, but your mind and brain did a swell job to solve the puzzles that required some labeling to move on, as unsupervised learning systems follow. So we can think of a similar machine architecture where the basis for all inferences is supervised learning, but capable of labeling any data that is not done by humans or other machines. And even criticize existing labels. We are actually talking about machine learning - unsupervised - to generate labels for machine learning. And creativity, in my view, is one of the essential links to evolve in understanding and formalizing new machine learning models.

It puts the "smart" in your smartphone and soon it will drive your car. It makes most of the trades on Wall Street, and controls vital energy, water, and transportation infrastructure. But Artificial Intelligence can also threaten our existence. In as little as a decade, AI could match and then surpass human intelligence. Corporations and government agencies are pouring billions into achieving AI’s Holy Grail - human-level intelligence. Once AI has attained it, scientists argue, it will have survival drives much like our own. We may be forced to compete with a rival more cunning, more powerful, and more alien than we can imagine. Through profiles of tech visionaries, industry watchdogs, and groundbreaking AI systems, Our Final Invention explores the perils of the heedless pursuit of advanced AI. Until now, human intelligence has had no rival. Can we coexist with beings whose intelligence dwarfs our own? And will they allow us to?

Deep Thinking

Summary

Garry Kasparov's 1997 chess match against the IBM supercomputer Deep Blue was a watershed moment in the history of technology. It was the dawn of a new era in artificial intelligence: a machine capable of beating the reigning human champion at this most cerebral game. That moment was more than a century in the making, and in this breakthrough book, Kasparov reveals his astonishing side of the story for the first time. He describes how it felt to strategize against an implacable, untiring opponent with the whole world watching, and recounts the history of machine intelligence through the microcosm of chess, considered by generations of scientific pioneers to be a key to unlocking the secrets of human and machine cognition. Kasparov uses his unrivaled experience to look into the future of intelligent machines and sees it bright with possibility. As many critics decry artificial intelligence as a menace, particularly to human jobs, Kasparov shows how humanity can rise to new heights with the help of our most extraordinary creations, rather than fear them. Deep Thinking is a tightly argued case for technological progress, from the man who stood at its precipice with his own career at stake.

The Deep Learning Revolution

Summary

How deep learning - from Google Translate to driverless cars to personal cognitive assistants - is changing our lives and transforming every sector of the economy. The deep-learning revolution has brought us driverless cars, the greatly improved Google Translate, fluent conversations with Siri and Alexa, and enormous profits from automated trading on the New York Stock Exchange. Deep-learning networks can play poker better than professional poker players and defeat a world champion at Go. In this book, Terry Sejnowski explains how deep learning went from being an arcane academic field to a disruptive technology in the information economy. Sejnowski played an important role in the founding of deep learning, as one of a small group of researchers in the 1980s who challenged the prevailing logic-and-symbol based version of AI. The new version of AI Sejnowski and others developed, which became deep learning, is fueled instead by data. Deep networks learn from data in the same way that babies experience the world, starting with fresh eyes and gradually acquiring the skills needed to navigate novel environments. It took nature many millions of years to evolve human intelligence; AI is on a trajectory measured in decades. Sejnowski prepares us for a deep learning future.

Summary

"There comes a time in the life of a subject when someone steps up and writes the book about it. AIQ explores the fascinating history of the ideas that drive this technology of the future and demystifies the core concepts behind it; the result is a positive and entertaining look at the great potential unlocked by marrying human creativity with powerful machines." (Steven Levitt, co-author of Freakonomics) From two cutting-edge data scientists comes a fascinating audiobook that tells listeners what they need to know in order to understand how intelligent machines are changing the world and how we can use this knowledge to make better decisions in our own lives.  Dozens of times per day, we all interact with intelligent machines that are constantly learning from the wealth of data now available to them. These machines, from smart phones to talking robots to self-driving cars, are remaking the world of the 21st century in the same way that the Industrial Revolution remade the world of the 19th century.  AIQ, by Nick Polson and James Scott, is based on a simple premise: If you want to understand the modern world, then you have to know a little bit of the mathematical language spoken by intelligent machines. AIQ will teach listeners that language - but in an unconventional way, anchored in stories rather than mathematics.  Listeners will meet a fascinating cast of historical characters who have a lot to teach about data, probability, and better thinking. Along the way, listeners will see how these same ideas are playing out in the modern age of big data and intelligent machines - and how these technologies will soon help them to overcome some of their built-in cognitive weaknesses, giving them a chance to lead happier, healthier, more fulfilled lives. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Summary

This book is great for those just starting out in programming. And for those needing more advanced coding knowledge. The author explains everything step by step in a simple and easy to understand way. This book covers JavaScript, HTML, SQL, CSS, and Python programming languages. The narrator in the audiobook version seems to be pretty good. He doesn't drone on. This book is a combination or bundle of two books. One book is 27,000 words on just Python, and the other book is 27,000 words on JavaScript, HTML, SQL, and CSS. The audiobook is 10 hours and 6 minutes.  In the first book in the bundle, The Ultimate Python Programming Guide for Beginners, you will learn all the essential tools to become proficient in the Python programming language. Learn how to install Python in all major operating systems: Windows, Mac OS, and even Linux. You will be guided step by step from downloading the necessary files to making adjustments in the installation for your particular operating system. Learn the command line shell, and how to use it to run Python in interactive and script modes.  Discover how the Python interpreter functions, and learn how to use the interactive command line shell through practical examples you can try on your own. Learn datatypes and variables in depth, with example code and discussion of the generated output.  Numbers are covered in detail, including a discussion of the four number types in Python: integer, float, complex, and boolean. Learn about Truthy and Falsy returns and how they relate to the boolean type. Practice with some of the many built-in python math functions, and discover the difference between format() and round() functions.  Strings are one of the most important variables in any programming language. Learn in-depth how to explore, search, and even manipulate strings in Python. Practice with Python’s built-in string methods.  Learn about Python’s control structures and how to use boolean logic to achieve your software requirements.  Inside the second book in the bundle, you will find an introduction to JavaScript, HTML, CSS, and SQL. These are computer programming languages. Some of them are more precisely referred to as scripting languages.  Starting with JavaScript, I will introduce you to the above-mentioned programming languages. Hopefully, by the end of this book, you will have the answers to the questions of what it is and what you can do with it.  JavaScript is a programming language that allows for the implementation of complex items on static web pages. Every time you look at a web page that does something besides display static information, it is a pretty safe assumption to make that JavaScript is involved. It is often referred to as the third layer of the cake. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Summary

As thinking machines make more decisions on our behalf, they can enrich, enable, and influence our lives. Whether in medicine, money, or love, technologies powered by forms of artificial intelligence are playing an increasingly prominent role in our lives. How do we ensure they make the most beneficial choices for us? And if one person benefits at another's expense, who gets to decide what's best? The increasing use of AI raises critical questions about our values, cultures, economies, and power relationships. And the answers may depend upon your race, gender, age, behavior, and nationality.

In clear and accessible prose, Olaf Groth and Mark Nitzberg explore the history of intelligent technology, revealing how close we are to designing machines that have some sort of consciousness - and that we must now decide how to give those machines a conscience. Simultaneously thrilling and provocative, Solomon's Code raises difficult questions that need to be considered given the speed of technological development.

Summary

This audiobook explains why AI is unique, what legal and ethical problems it could cause, and how we can address them. It argues that AI is unlike any other previous technology, owing to its ability to take decisions independently and unpredictably. This gives rise to three issues: responsibility - who is liable if AI causes harm; rights - the disputed moral and pragmatic grounds for granting AI legal personality; and the ethics surrounding the decision-making of AI. The audiobook suggests that in order to address these questions we need to develop new institutions and regulations on a cross-industry and international level. Incorporating clear explanations of complex topics, Robot Rules will appeal to a multidisciplinary audience, from those with an interest in law, politics, and philosophy, to computer programming, engineering, and neuroscience.

Rage Inside the Machine

Summary

We live in a world increasingly ruled by technology; we seem as governed by technology as we do by laws and regulations. Frighteningly often, the influence of technology in and on our lives goes completely unchallenged by citizens and governments. We comfort ourselves with the soothing refrain that technology has no morals and can display no prejudice, and it's only the users of technology who distort certain aspects of it. But is this statement actually true? Dr. Robert Smith thinks it is dangerously untrue in the modern era. Having worked in the field of artificial intelligence for more than 30 years, Smith reveals the mounting evidence that the mechanical actors in our lives do indeed have, or at least express, morals: They're just not the morals of the progressive modern society that we imagined we were moving toward. Instead, as we are just beginning to see - in the US elections and Brexit, to name but a few - there are increasing incidences of machine bigotry, greed, and the crass manipulation of our basest instincts. This book demonstrates how nonscientific ideas have been encoded deep into our technological infrastructure. Offering a rigorous, fresh perspective on how technology has brought us to this place, Rage Inside the Machine challenges the long-held assumption that technology is an apolitical and amoral force.

The Future of the Video Game Industry, How Emerging Technologies Will Revolutionize the Video Game Industry

Summary

This essay sheds light on the future of the video game industry and explicates how emerging technologies will revolutionize the video game industry. Moreover, why esports have become popular is delineated in this essay. Furthermore, how to earn substantial money online so that you can afford to procure your own video games is expounded upon in this essay.  The future of the video industry will not only be characterized by dynamism as it continues to metaphorically evolve, but will also be eminently auspicious for video game publishers, video game developers, and customers. The future of the video game industry will be more grandiose than ever envisioned, especially as emerging technologies further revolution the behemoth video game industry. In other words, the future of the video game industry will not be solely limited to shovelware mobile games pervading the video game industry.  “The global gaming market was valued at $151,550,000,000 in 2019 and is expected to reach a value of $256,970,000,000 by 2025, registering a compound annual growth rate of 9.17 percent over the forecast period of 2020-2025. Game developers across emerging economies are continually striving to enhance gamer's experience, launching, and rewriting codes for diverse console/platforms, such as PlayStation, Xbox, and Windows PC, which are incorporated into one product provided to the gamers through the cloud platform. The emergence of cloud gaming” (“Gaming Market - Growth”) has helped to substantially drive video game industry growth. In the coming years, cloud gaming, mobile gaming, PC gaming, and even console gaming will become all the more prevalent.  “Recent advances in advanced cloud technology have turned the idea of cloud gaming into reality. In cloud gaming, the server, where all the games are stored, does all the computation work, which includes game scene rendering, game logic processing video encoding, and video streaming.” (“Gaming Market - Growth”, n.d.) The rising popularity of Esports, gaming streams, and gameplay videos have also contributed to the growth of the behemoth video game industry. It stands to preponderantly reason that the future of the video game industry will not only allow the video game industry to reach an unprecedented pinnacle of success, but will also attract more competitors to enter the sizable video game industry. In the coming years, similarly to video streaming subscription services, such as Netflix or Amazon Prime Video, customers will have more video game streaming subscription services available to them with a broader selection of titles to choose from playing. In other words, for a monthly subscription fee of five dollars to $10 per month, customers will be able to have the option to stream a myriad of video games on their consoles or their PCs. In the coming years, video game streaming subscription services will not be limited to “Xbox Game Pass, PlayStation Now, Geoforce Now” (“The Impact Of”, 2019), and Google Stadia.  “This new sector is also seen as a serious competitor for the traditional game market” (“The Impact Of”, 2019). The traditional game market is no longer the utmost lucrative segment of the sizable video game industry. The future of the video game industry will offer far more to customers than merely just traditional console games. The future of the video game industry will also offer more to gamers than “virtual reality and augmented reality” (Koss, 2020) video game experiences. In 2019, the video game industry generated over $6,300,000,000 in revenue (Koss, 2020) from “augmented reality and virtual reality” (Koss, 2020) video games. Much to the relief of gamers, “companies are busy making virtual reality experiences more consumer-friendly, and it is only a matter of time before both the weight and price of virtual reality headsets drop” (Koss).

Heart of the Machine

1 rating

Summary

Imagine a robotic stuffed animal that can read and respond to a child's emotional state or a commercial that can change based on a customer's facial expression. Heart of the Machine explores the next giant step in the relationship between humans and technology: the ability of computers to recognize, respond to, and even replicate emotions. Computers have long been integral to our lives, and their advances continue at an exponential rate. Many believe that artificial intelligence equal or superior to human intelligence will happen in the not-too-distance future. Futurist Richard Yonck argues that emotion, the first, most basic, and most natural form of communication, is at the heart of how we will soon work with and use computers. Instilling emotions into computers is the next leap in our centuries-old obsession with creating machines that replicate humans. But for every benefit this progress may bring to our lives, there is a possible pitfall. Emotion recognition could lead to advanced surveillance, and the same technology that can manipulate our feelings could become a method of mass control. Heart of the Machine is an exploration of the new and inevitable ways in which mankind and technology will interact.

The AI Delusion

Summary

We live in an incredible period in history. The computer revolution may be even more life-changing than the Industrial Revolution. We can do things with computers that could never be done before, and computers can do things for us that could never be done before. But our love of computers should not cloud our thinking about their limitations. We are told that computers are smarter than humans and that data mining can identify previously unknown truths or make discoveries that will revolutionize our lives. Our lives may well be changed, but not necessarily for the better. Computers are very good at discovering patterns but are useless in judging whether the unearthed patterns are sensible because computers do not think the way humans think. We fear that super-intelligent machines will decide to protect themselves by enslaving or eliminating humans. But the real danger is not that computers are smarter than us but that we think computers are smarter than us and, so, trust computers to make important decisions for us. The AI Delusion explains why we should not be intimidated into thinking that computers are infallible, that data-mining is knowledge discovery, and that black boxes should be trusted.

Machine Learning: The New AI

2 ratings

Summary

Today, machine learning underlies a range of applications we use every day, from product recommendations to voice recognition - as well as some we don't yet use every day, including driverless cars. It is the basis of the new approach in computing where we do not write programs but collect data; the idea is to learn the algorithms for the tasks automatically from data. As computing devices grow more ubiquitous, a larger part of our lives and work is recorded digitally, and as "Big Data" has gotten bigger, the theory of machine learning - the foundation of efforts to process that data into knowledge - has also advanced. In this audiobook, machine learning expert Ethem Alpaydin offers a concise overview of the subject for the general listener, describing its evolution, explaining important learning algorithms, and presenting example applications. Alpaydin offers an account of how digital technology advanced from number-crunching mainframes to mobile devices, putting today's machine learning boom in context. He describes the basics of machine learning and some applications; the use of machine learning algorithms for pattern recognition; artificial neural networks inspired by the human brain; algorithms that learn associations between instances, with such applications as customer segmentation and learning recommendations; and reinforcement learning, when an autonomous agent learns act so as to maximize reward and minimize penalty. Alpaydin then considers some future directions for machine learning and the new field of "data science," and discusses the ethical and legal implications for data privacy and security.

Red to Black: The Making of Rogue Legacy

Summary

On June 27, 2013, Kenny and Teddy Lee were broke and jobless. After four years working together on smaller videogames - some written over the course of a week, others in a few hours - the two brothers had pooled their resources to create Rogue Legacy, a game exponentially larger in scope than any they had created before. If Rogue Legacy failed, it would also be their last. Seven days and 100,000 sales later, they were back in the black. Their recipe for success: 18 months, countless arguments, a surprisingly popular game about holding one's bowels, and unwavering trust. Based on interviews with the development team, Red to Black: The Making of Rogue Legacy tells the story of two brothers who poured blood, sweat, tears, and exactly $14,878 into the game that would make or break their careers - and their bank accounts.
