What Tech Calls Thinking

Summary

A New York Times Book Review Editors' Choice "In Daub’s hands the founding concepts of Silicon Valley don’t make money; they fall apart." (The New York Times Book Review) From FSGO x Logic: a Stanford professor's spirited dismantling of Silicon Valley's intellectual origins Adrian Daub’s What Tech Calls Thinking is a lively dismantling of the ideas that form the intellectual bedrock of Silicon Valley. Equally important to Silicon Valley’s world-altering innovation are the language and ideas it uses to explain and justify itself. And often, those fancy new ideas are simply old motifs playing dress-up in a hoodie. From the myth of dropping out to the war cry of “disruption”, Daub locates the Valley’s supposedly original, radical thinking in the ideas of Heidegger and Ayn Rand, the New Age Esalen Foundation in Big Sur, and American traditions from the tent revival to predestination. Written with verve and imagination, What Tech Calls Thinking is an intellectual refutation of Silicon Valley's ethos, pulling back the curtain on the self-aggrandizing myths the Valley tells about itself. FSG Originals × Logic dissects the way technology functions in everyday lives. The titans of Silicon Valley, for all their utopian imaginings, never really had our best interests at heart: Recent threats to democracy, truth, privacy, and safety, as a result of tech’s reckless pursuit of progress, have shown as much. We present an alternate story, one that delights in capturing technology in all its contradictions and innovation, across borders and socioeconomic divisions, from history through the future, beyond platitudes and PR hype, and past doom and gloom. Our collaboration features four brief but provocative forays into the tech industry’s many worlds, and aspires to incite fresh conversations about technology focused on nuanced and accessible explorations of the emerging tools that reorganize and redefine life today.

Block by Block

Summary

At the heart of many fields - physics, chemistry, engineering - lies thermodynamics. While this science plays a critical role in determining the boundary between what is and is not possible in the natural world, it occurs to many as an indecipherable black box, thus making the subject a challenge to learn. Two obstacles contribute to this situation, the first being the disconnect between the fundamental theories and the underlying physics and the second being the confusing concepts and terminologies involved with the theories. While one needn't confront either of these two obstacles to successfully use thermodynamics to solve real problems, overcoming both provides access to a greater intuitive sense of the problems and more confidence, more strength, and more creativity in solving them. Block by Block offers an original perspective on thermodynamic science and history based on the three approaches of a practicing engineer, academician, and historian. The book synthesizes and gathers into one accessible volume a strategic range of foundational topics involving the atomic theory, energy, entropy, and the laws of thermodynamics.

The Glass Cage

Summary

At once a celebration of technology and a warning about its misuse, The Glass Cage will change the way you think about the tools you use every day. In The Glass Cage, bestselling author Nicholas Carr digs behind the headlines about factory robots and self-driving cars, wearable computers and digitized medicine, as he explores the hidden costs of granting software dominion over our work and our leisure. Even as they bring ease to our lives, these programs are stealing something essential from us. Drawing on psychological and neurological studies that underscore how tightly people’s happiness and satisfaction are tied to performing hard work in the real world, Carr reveals something we already suspect: shifting our attention to computer screens can leave us disengaged and discontented. From nineteenth-century textile mills to the cockpits of modern jets, from the frozen hunting grounds of Inuit tribes to the sterile landscapes of GPS maps, The Glass Cage explores the impact of automation from a deeply human perspective, examining the personal as well as the economic consequences of our growing dependence on computers. With a characteristic blend of history and philosophy, poetry and science, Carr takes us on a journey from the work and early theory of Adam Smith and Alfred North Whitehead to the latest research into human attention, memory, and happiness, culminating in a moving meditation on how we can use technology to expand the human experience.

How Digital Technology Shapes Us

1 rating

Summary

Most adults are concerned that children have much too much technology in their lives these days and are spending way too much time on screens. But as Professor Indre Viskontas points out in How Digital Technology Shapes Us, we are not the first to worry that new technology will harm our children and future generations. At least since the beginning of recorded history, we have been underestimating the capacity of the human brain to adapt to and take advantage of emerging technologies. In this course, Professor Viskontas shares some of the most exciting research into this relatively new topic, providing a scientific approach to judging the true pros and cons of our interaction with technology in the digital age.  Many of us believe we are adjusting well to this new digital technology with its constant demands on our time and attention by increasing our multitasking. But multitasking cannot save us because our brain is not capable of true multitasking. What we experience as multitasking is actually our brain flitting back and forth from this task to the next to the next to the next. That we can do, but in the process, we could be losing the ability - and opportunity - to perform deep work, the opportunity for deep reading, and the empathy that builds up when we think deeply about people who are different from us, to truly expand the tribe rather than reinforce tribalism.  The good news is that just recognizing the significance of deep work and deep reading, we can make it a priority and arrange some time to focus on just that without distractions. If we do, those pathways that lead to deeper cognition can become reinforced. We can also help our children focus on the positives of digital media, empowering them to connect with others to find purpose, motivation, and support. We can spend time with them to encourage them to find opportunities for deep reading and deep work in age-appropriate ways.  Digital technology definitely shapes us. But once we learn how it does so, we can make good decisions for our ourselves and our children.

You Are Not a Gadget

Summary

Jaron Lanier, a Silicon Valley visionary since the 1980s, was among the first to predict the revolutionary changes the World Wide Web would bring to commerce and culture. Now, in his first book, written more than two decades after the web was created, Lanier offers this provocative and cautionary look at the way it is transforming our lives for better and for worse. The current design and function of the web have become so familiar that it is easy to forget that they grew out of programming decisions made decades ago. The web’s first designers made crucial choices (such as making one’s presence anonymous) that have had enormous - and often unintended - consequences. What’s more, these designs quickly became “locked in”, a permanent part of the web’s very structure. Lanier discusses the technical and cultural problems that can grow out of poorly considered digital design and warns that our financial markets and sites like Wikipedia, Facebook, and Twitter are elevating the “wisdom” of mobs and computer algorithms over the intelligence and judgment of individuals. Lanier also shows: How 1960s antigovernment paranoia influenced the design of the online world and enabled trolling and trivialization in online discourse How file sharing is killing the artistic middle class How a belief in a technological “rapture” motivates some of the most influential technologists Why a new humanistic technology is necessary. Controversial and fascinating, You Are Not a Gadget is a deeply felt defense of the individual from an author uniquely qualified to comment on the way technology interacts with our culture.

Summary

In The Alchemy of Us, scientist and science writer Ainissa Ramirez examines eight inventions - clocks, steel rails, copper communication cables, photographic film, light bulbs, hard disks, scientific labware, and silicon chips - and reveals how they shaped the human experience. Ramirez tells the stories of the woman who sold time, the inventor who inspired Edison, and the hotheaded undertaker whose invention pointed the way to the computer. She describes, among other things, how our pursuit of precision in timepieces changed how we sleep; how the railroad helped commercialize Christmas; and how a young chemist exposed the use of Polaroid's cameras to create passbooks to track black citizens in apartheid South Africa. Ramirez shows not only how materials were shaped by inventors but also how those materials shaped culture, chronicling each invention and its consequences - intended and unintended. Filling in the gaps left by other books about technology, Ramirez showcases little-known inventors who had a significant impact but whose accomplishments have been hidden by mythmaking, bias, and convention. Doing so, she shows us the power of telling inclusive stories about technology. She also shows that innovation is universal - whether it's splicing beats with two turntables and a microphone or splicing genes with two test tubes and CRISPR.

Blockchain Chicken Farm

Summary

From FSGO x Logic: stories about rural China, food, and tech that reveal new truths about the globalized world In Blockchain Chicken Farm, the technologist and writer Xiaowei Wang explores the political and social entanglements of technology in rural China. Their discoveries force them to challenge the standard idea that rural culture and people are backward, conservative, and intolerant. Instead, they find that rural China has not only adapted to rapid globalization but has actually innovated the technology we all use today. From pork farmers using AI to produce the perfect pig, to disruptive luxury counterfeits and the political intersections of e-commerce villages, Wang unravels the ties between globalization, technology, agriculture, and commerce in unprecedented fashion. Accompanied by humorous "Sinofuturist" recipes that frame meals as they transform under new technology, Blockchain Chicken Farm is an original and probing look into innovation, connectivity, and collaboration in the digitized rural world. FSG Originals × Logic dissects the way technology functions in everyday lives. The titans of Silicon Valley, for all their utopian imaginings, never really had our best interests at heart: Recent threats to democracy, truth, privacy, and safety, as a result of tech's reckless pursuit of progress, have shown as much.

And Then There's This

Summary

An entertaining and eye-opening look into the new frontier of idea making - breaking news, fresh gossip, tiny scandals, trumped up crises - every day we are distracted by a culture that rings our doorbell and then runs away. Stories spread wildly and die out in mere days, quickly replaced by more stories with ever shorter shelflives. How we participate in these stories has changed, too. No longer do we sit on the sidelines waiting for monolithic media giants to tell us what's happening. Anyone on a computer in his or her local Starbucks can spread a story almost as easily as The New York Times, CNN, or People - in fact blogs are now often the source for journalists working in big media. And Then There's This is Bill Wasik's journey along the unexplored frontier of our churning and rambunctious viral culture. Covering this world - watching new bands promote themselves at South by Southwest; reporting on a website contest while secretly entering it; and creating a site that aggregates all blog smears against the presidential primary candidates - he ends up conducting six experiments himself. He doesn't always get the results he expected, but along the way he meets a cast of characters who are capable of getting their information into our brains - and they're not who you think. And Then There's This reveals how our culture is now created from the ground up. Wasik proves that any one of us can cause a small ripple that can turn into a tsunami. Anyone involved in journalism, business, or information technology - and those who want to be - must read this book. And for the rest, Wasik's tour is great, eye-opening fun.

Summary

Plastic built the modern world. Where would we be without bike helmets, baggies, toothbrushes, and pacemakers? But a century into our love affair with plastic, we're starting to realize it's not such a healthy relationship. Plastics draw dwindling fossil fuels, leach harmful chemicals, litter landscapes, and destroy marine life. As journalist Susan Freinkel points out in this engaging and eye-opening book, we're nearing a crisis point. We're drowning in the stuff, and we need to start making some hard choices. Freinkel gives us the tools we need with a blend of lively anecdotes and analysis. She combs through scientific studies and economic data, reporting from China and across the United States to assess the real impact of plastic on our lives. She tells her story through eight familiar plastic objects: comb, chair, Frisbee, IV bag, disposable lighter, grocery bag, soda bottle, and credit card. Her conclusion: we cannot stay on our plastic-paved path. Plastic points the way toward a new creative partnership with the material we love to hate but can't seem to live without.

Summary

Over the course of a generation, algorithms have gone from mathematical abstractions to powerful mediators of daily life. Algorithms have made our lives more efficient, more entertaining, and, sometimes, better informed. At the same time, complex algorithms are increasingly violating the basic rights of individual citizens. Allegedly anonymized datasets routinely leak our most sensitive personal information; statistical models for everything from mortgages to college admissions reflect racial and gender bias. Meanwhile, users manipulate algorithms to "game" search engines, spam filters, online reviewing services, and navigation apps.   Understanding and improving the science behind the algorithms that run our lives is rapidly becoming one of the most pressing issues of this century. Traditional fixes, such as laws, regulations, and watchdog groups, have proven woefully inadequate. Reporting from the cutting edge of scientific research, The Ethical Algorithm offers a new approach: a set of principled solutions based on the emerging and exciting science of socially aware algorithm design. Michael Kearns and Aaron Roth explain how we can better embed human principles into machine code - without halting the advance of data-driven scientific exploration.  PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

A comprehensive treatment of all the important points about all of Facebook would require a multivolume specialized encyclopedia of thousands of hours of content. That is not happening here. To bring the focus back to my little audiobook about my small corner of Facebook: I start the audiobook with my wall posts of July 12, 2014 and travel back in time to March 11, 2014. I did not include any of my friends' responses to any of my posts, to respect their privacy. In this short audiobook, I have included poetry I have written, memes covered by fair-use copyright laws, and my own personal captions on my own posts, whenever I felt they added color. I do not always date posts in this audiobook, as I don't always date women who express an interest in me. All's fair in love and Facebook, my friends. To be completely transparent, my subtitle, "Sex, Lies, and My Crazy Life in New York City" is based on keywords to generate listeners. Psaw! I want you to know gentlemen still exist. I am a gentleman, and a gentleman never kisses and tells in an audiobook.

Summary

A global tour of energy - the builder of human civilization and also its greatest threat. Energy is humanity's single most important resource. In fact, as energy expert Michael E. Webber argues in Power Trip, the story of how societies rise can be told largely as the story of how they manage energy sources through time. In 2019, as we face down growing demand for and accumulating environmental impacts from energy, we are at a crossroads and the stakes are high. But history shows us that energy's great value is that it allows societies to reinvent themselves. Power Trip explores how energy has transformed societies of the past and offers wisdom for today's looming energy crisis. There is no magic bullet; energy advances always come with costs. Scientific innovation needs public support. Energy initiatives need to be tailored to individual societies. We must look for long-term solutions. Our current energy crisis is real, but it is solvable. We have the power.

Cult of the Dead Cow

Summary

The shocking untold story of the elite secret society of hackers fighting to protect our privacy, our freedom - even democracy itself... Cult of the Dead Cow is the tale of the oldest, most respected, and most famous American hacking group of all time. Though until now it has remained mostly anonymous, its members invented the concept of hacktivism, released the top tool for testing password security, and created what was for years the best technique for controlling computers from afar, forcing giant companies to work harder to protect customers. They contributed to the development of Tor, the most important privacy tool on the net, and helped build cyberweapons that advanced US security without injuring anyone.  With its origins in the earliest days of the Internet, the cDc is full of oddball characters - activists, artists, even future politicians. Many of these hackers have become top executives and advisors walking the corridors of power in Washington and Silicon Valley. The most famous is former Texas Congressman and current presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke, whose time in the cDc set him up to found a tech business, launch an alternative publication in El Paso, and make long-shot bets on unconventional campaigns. Today, the group and its followers are battling electoral misinformation, making personal data safer, and battling to keep technology a force for good instead of for surveillance and oppression. Cult of the Dead Cow shows how governments, corporations, and criminals came to hold immense power over individuals and how we can fight back against them.

Summary

Sie sind eines Verbrechens angeklagt. Wer soll über Ihr Schicksal entscheiden? Ein menschlicher Richter oder ein Computer-Algorithmus? Sie sind sich absolut sicher? Sie zögern womöglich? In beiden Fällen sollten Sie das Buch der jungen Mathematikerin und Moderatorin Hannah Fry lesen, das mit erfrischender Direktheit über Algorithmen aufklärt, indem es von Menschen handelt. Algorithmen prägen in wachsendem Ausmaß den Alltag von Konsum, Finanzen, Medizin, Polizei, Justiz, Demokratie und sogar Kunst. Sie sortieren die Welt für uns, eröffnen neue Optionen und nehmen uns Entscheidungen ab - schnell, effektiv, gründlich. Aber sie tun das, ohne zu fragen, und stellen uns vor neue Dilemmata. Vor allem jedoch: Wir neigen dazu, Algorithmen als eine Art Autorität zu betrachten. statt ihre Macht infrage zu stellen. Keine Dimension unserer Welt, in der sie nicht längst Einzug gehalten haben: Algorithmen, diese unscheinbaren Folgen von Anweisungen, die im Internet sowieso, aber auch in jedem Computerprogramm tätig sind, prägen in wachsendem, beängstigendem Ausmaß den Alltag von Konsum, Finanzen, Medizin, Polizei, Justiz, Demokratie und sogar Kunst. Sie sortieren die Welt für uns, eröffnen neue Optionen und nehmen uns Entscheidungen ab - schnell, effektiv, gründlich. Aber sie tun das häufig, ohne uns zu fragen, und sie stellen uns vor neue, keineswegs einfach zu lösende Dilemmata. Vor allem aber: Wir neigen dazu, Algorithmen als eine Art Autorität zu betrachten, statt ihre Macht in Frage zu stellen. Das öffnet Menschen, die uns ausbeuten wollen, Tür und Tor.

Exploding the Phone

3 ratings

Summary

Before smartphones, back even before the Internet and personal computer, a misfit group of technophiles, blind teenagers, hippies, and outlaws figured out how to hack the world’s largest machine: the telephone system. Starting with Alexander Graham Bell’s revolutionary "harmonic telegraph", by the middle of the 20th century the phone system had grown into something extraordinary, a web of cutting-edge switching machines and human operators that linked together millions of people like never before. But the network had a billion-dollar flaw, and once people discovered it, things would never be the same. Exploding the Phone tells this story in full for the first time. It traces the birth of long-distance communication and the telephone, the rise of AT&T’s monopoly, the creation of the sophisticated machines that made it all work, and the discovery of Ma Bell’s Achilles’ heel. Phil Lapsley expertly weaves together the clandestine underground of "phone phreaks" who turned the network into their electronic playground, the mobsters who exploited its flaws to avoid the feds, the explosion of telephone hacking in the counterculture, and the war between the phreaks, the phone company, and the FBI. The product of extensive original research, Exploding the Phone is a groundbreaking, captivating book.

The Most Powerful Idea in the World

Summary

If all measures of human advancement in the last hundred centuries were plotted on a graph, they would show an almost perfectly flat line - until the eighteenth century, when the Industrial Revolution would cause the line to shoot straight up, beginning an almost uninterrupted march of progress. In The Most Powerful Idea in the World, William Rosen tells the story of the men responsible for the Industrial Revolution and the machine that drove it - the steam engine. In the process, he tackles the question that has obsessed historians ever since: What made 18th-century Britain such fertile soil for inventors? Rosen's answer focuses on a simple notion that had become enshrined in British law the century before: that people had the right to own and profit from their ideas. The result was a period of frantic innovation revolving particularly around the promise of steam power. Rosen traces the steam engine's history from its early days as a clumsy but sturdy machine, to its coming-of-age driving the wheels of mills and factories, to its maturity as a transporter for people and freight by rail and by sea. Along the way, we enter the minds of such inventors as Thomas Newcomen and James Watt; scientists, including Robert Boyle and Joseph Black; and philosophers John Locke and Adam Smith - all of whose insights, tenacity, and ideas transformed first a nation and then the world. Rosen is a masterly storyteller with a keen eye for the "aha!" moments of invention and a gift for clear and entertaining explanations of science. The Most Powerful Idea in the World will appeal to anyone who is fascinated with history, science, and the hows and whys of innovation itself.

Summary

From the acclaimed author of Tubes, a lively and surprising tour of the infrastructure behind the weather forecast, the people who built it, and what it reveals about our climate and our planet The weather is the foundation of our daily lives. It’s a staple of small talk, the app on our smartphones, and often the first thing we check each morning. Yet behind these quotidian interactions is one of the most expansive machines human beings have ever constructed - a triumph of science, technology, and global cooperation. But what is this "weather machine" and who created it?  In The Weather Machine, Andrew Blum takes listeners on a fascinating journey through an everyday miracle. In a quest to understand how the forecast works, he visits old weather stations and watches new satellites blast off. He follows the dogged efforts of scientists to create a supercomputer model of the atmosphere, and traces the surprising history of the algorithms that power their work. He discovers that we have quietly entered a golden age of meteorology - our tools allow us to predict weather more accurately than ever, and yet we haven’t learned to trust them, nor can we guarantee the fragile international alliances that allow our modern weather machine to exist. Written with the sharp wit and infectious curiosity Andrew Blum is known for, The Weather Machine pulls back the curtain on a universal part of our everyday lives, illuminating our relationships with technology, the planet, and the global community.

The Age of Living Machines

1 rating

Summary

From the former president of MIT, the story of the next technology revolution and how it will change our lives.  A century ago, discoveries in physics came together with engineering to produce an array of astonishing new technologies: radios, telephones, televisions, aircraft, radar, nuclear power, computers, the internet, and a host of still-evolving digital tools. These technologies so radically reshaped our world that we can no longer conceive of life without them.  Today, the world's population is projected to rise to well over 9.5 billion by 2050, and we are currently faced with the consequences of producing the energy that fuels, heats, and cools us. With temperatures and sea levels rising and large portions of the globe plagued with drought, famine, and drug-resistant diseases, we need new technologies to tackle these problems. But we are on the cusp of a new convergence, argues world-renowned neuroscientist Susan Hockfield, with discoveries in biology coming together with engineering to produce another array of almost inconceivable technologies - next-generation products that have the potential to be every bit as paradigm-shifting as the 20th century's digital wonders.  The Age of Living Machines describes some of the most exciting new developments and the scientists and engineers who helped create them. Virus-built batteries. Protein-based water filters. Cancer-detecting nanoparticles. Mind-reading bionic limbs. Computer-engineered crops. Together they highlight the promise of the technology revolution of the 21st century to overcome some of the greatest humanitarian, medical, and environmental challenges of our time.

The Internet of Us

Summary

We used to say "seeing is believing"; now googling is believing. With 24/7 access to nearly all of the world's information at our fingertips, we no longer trek to the library or the encyclopedia shelf in search of answers. We just open our browsers, type in a few keywords, and wait for the information to come to us. Indeed, the Internet has revolutionized the way we learn and know as well as how we interact with each other. Yet this explosion of technological innovation has also produced a curious paradox: Even as we know more, we seem to understand less. While a wealth of literature has been devoted to life with the Internet, the deep philosophical implications of this seismic shift have not been properly explored until now. Demonstrating that knowledge based on reason plays an essential role in society and that there is much more to "knowing" than just acquiring information, leading philosopher Michael Patrick Lynch shows how our digital way of life makes us overvalue some ways of processing information over others and thus risks distorting what it means to be human. With far-reaching implications, Lynch's argument charts a path from Plato's cave to Shannon's mathematical theory of information to Google Glass, illustrating that technology itself isn't the problem, nor is it the solution. Instead it will be the way in which we adapt our minds to these new tools that will ultimately decide whether or not the "Internet of Things" - all those gadgets on our wrists, in our pockets, and on our laps - will be a net gain for humanity. Along the way, Lynch uses a philosopher's lens to examine some of the most urgent issues facing digital life today, including how social media is revolutionizing the way we think about privacy; why a greater reliance on Wikipedia and Google doesn't necessarily make knowledge more democratic; and the perils of using big data alone to predict cultural trends. Promising to modernize our understanding of what it means to be human in the digital age, The Internet of Us builds on previous works by Nicholas Carr, James Gleick, and Jaron Lanier to give us a necessary guide on how to navigate the philosophical quagmire that is the Information Age.

The Dream Machine

Summary

Behind every great revolution is a vision, and behind perhaps the greatest revolution of our time, personal computing, is the vision of J.C.R. Licklider. He did not design the first personal computers or write the software that ran on them, nor was he involved in the legendary early companies that brought them to the forefront of our everyday experience. He was instead a relentless visionary who saw the potential of the way individuals could interact with computers and software. 

At a time when computers were a short step removed from mechanical data processors, Licklider was writing treatises on "human-computer symbiosis", "computers as communication devices", and a now not-so-unfamiliar "Intergalactic Network". His ideas became so influential, his passion so contagious, that Waldrop called him "computing's Johnny Appleseed". 

In a simultaneously compelling personal narrative and comprehensive historical exposition, Waldrop tells the story of the man who not only instigated the work that led to the internet, but also shifted our understanding of what computers were and could be.

Included in this edition are also the original texts of Licklider's three most influential writings: "Man-computer symbiosis" (1960), which outlines the vision that inspired the personal computer revolution of the 1970s; his "Intergalactic Network" memo (1963), which outlines the vision that inspired the Internet; and "The computer as a communication device" (1968, coauthored with Robert Taylor), which amplifies his vision for what the network could become.

Summary

The incredible story of Iridium - the most complex satellite system ever built, the cell phone of the future, and one of the largest corporate bankruptcies in American history - and one man's desperate race to save it. In the early 1990s, Motorola, the legendary American technology company, developed a revolutionary satellite system called Iridium that promised to be its crowning achievement. Light-years ahead of anything previously put into space, and built on technology developed for Ronald Reagan's "Star Wars", Iridium's constellation of 66 satellites in polar orbit meant that no matter where you were on Earth, at least one satellite was always overhead, and you could call Tibet from Fiji without a delay and without your call ever touching a wire. Iridium the satellite system was a mind-boggling technical accomplishment, surely the future of communication. The only problem was that Iridium the company was a commercial disaster. Only months after launching service, it was $11 billion in debt, burning through $100 million a month, and crippled by baroque rate plans and agreements that forced calls through Moscow; Beijing; Fucino, Italy; and elsewhere. Bankruptcy was inevitable - the largest to that point in American history. And when no real buyers seemed to materialize, it looked like Iridium would go down as just a "science experiment". That is, until Dan Colussy got a wild idea. Colussy, a former head of Pan Am now retired and working on his golf game in Palm Beach, heard about Motorola's plans to "de-orbit" the system and decided he would buy Iridium and somehow turn around one of the biggest blunders in the history of business. In Eccentric Orbits, John Bloom masterfully traces the conception, development, and launching of Iridium and Colussy's tireless efforts to stop it from being destroyed, from meetings with his motley investor group to the Clinton White House, the Pentagon, and the hunt for customers in special ops, shipping, aviation, mining, search and rescue - anyone who would need a durable phone at the end of the Earth. Impeccably researched and wonderfully told, Eccentric Orbits is a rollicking, unforgettable tale of technological achievement, business failure, the military-industrial complex, and one of the greatest deals of all time.

A Prehistory of the Cloud

1 rating

Summary

We may imagine the digital cloud as placeless, mute, ethereal, and unmediated. Yet the reality of the cloud is embodied in thousands of massive data centers, any one of which can use as much electricity as a midsized town. Even all these data centers are only one small part of the cloud. Behind that cloud-shaped icon on our screens is a whole universe of technologies and cultural norms, all working to keep us from noticing their existence. Hu shows that the cloud grew out of such older networks as railroad tracks, sewer lines, and television circuits. He describes key moments in the prehistory of the cloud, from the game Spacewar as exemplar of time-sharing computers to Cold War bunkers that were later reused as data centers. Countering the popular perception of a new "cloudlike" political power that is dispersed and immaterial, Hu argues that the cloud grafts digital technologies onto older ways of exerting power over a population. But because we invest the cloud with cultural fantasies about security and participation, we fail to recognize its militarized origins and ideology. Moving between the materiality of the technology itself and its cultural rhetoric, Hu's account offers a set of new tools for rethinking the contemporary digital environment.

GPS

Summary

A concise history of GPS, from its military origins to its commercial applications and ubiquity in everyday life.   GPS is ubiquitous in everyday life. GPS mapping is standard equipment in many new cars, and geolocation services are embedded in smart phones. GPS makes Uber and Lyft possible; driverless cars won't be able to drive without it. In this volume in the MIT Press Essential Knowledge series, Paul Ceruzzi offers a concise history of GPS, explaining how a once-obscure space technology became an invisible piece of our infrastructure, as essential to modern life as electric power or clean water.   GPS relays precise time and positioning information from orbiting satellites to receivers on the ground, at sea, and in the air. It operates worldwide, and its basic signals are free, although private companies can commodify the data provided. Ceruzzi recounts the origins of GPS and its predecessor technologies, including early aircraft navigation systems and satellites. He describes the invention of GPS as a space technology in the post-Apollo, pre-Space Shuttle years and its first military and commercial uses. Ceruzzi explains how the convergence of three major technological developments - the microprocessor, the internet, and cellular telephony - enabled the development and application of GPS technology.

Infinity Beckoned illuminates a critical period of space history when humans dared an expansive leap into the inner solar system. Jay Gallentine conveys the trials and triumphs of the people on the ground who conceived and engineered the missions that put robotic spacecraft on the heavenly bodies nearest our own. Based on numerous interviews, Gallentine delivers a rich variety of stories involving the men and women, American and Russian, responsible for such groundbreaking endeavors as the Mars Viking missions of the 1970s and the Soviet Venera flights to Venus in the 1980s. From the dreamers responsible for the Venus landing who discovered that dropping down through heavy clouds of sulfuric acid and 900-degree heat was best accomplished by surfing to the five-man teams puppeteering the Soviet moon rovers from a top-secret, off-the-map town without a name, the people who come to life in this book persevered in often trying, thankless circumstances. Their legacy is our better understanding of our own planet and our place in the cosmos.

Summary

Almost everything we consume online is free. Email, search, news, entertainment. But those apps on our phones aren't really free - so if we're not paying, who is? The surveillance marketing industry. It doesn't have to be this way. Web pioneers tried to invent new payment methods. Google's founders were dead set against advertising. Email wasn't always open to data mining. Yet here we are. Why? Because business can exploit our desire that "Information wants to be free", and yet someone needs to pay. It started way back in the early days of the republic, evolved with newspapers, radio and broadcast TV, and persists today online. Be the customer, not the product. In Free Is Bad, digital marketing entrepreneur John Marshall explores the web industry's early history and its search for viable business models. It's an investigation of how an evolutionary accident in the design of the web resulted in the ad-tech industry, enabling "free" as the default model for technology products like search and email, and for media products like news and entertainment. How did we become the product? Why that has led to the fracturing of society How new, people-first businesses are improving matters Free Is Bad offers not just a critique but optimism for a future where we control our online destiny. It also provides practical steps that will immediately improve your privacy and quality of information. Ultimately, we're better off being the customer and not the product, because Free Is Bad. This book explains why that is, and what you can do about it.

Microsoft Secrets

Summary

Microsoft commands the high ground of the information superhighway by owning the operating systems and basic applications programs that run on hundreds of millions of computers around the world. Beyond the unquestioned genius and vision of Bill Gates, what accounts for Microsoft's astounding success? Drawing on almost two years of on-site observation at Microsoft headquarters, eminent scientists Michael A. Cusumano and Richard W. Selby reveal many of Microsoft's innermost secrets. This inside report, based on 40 in-depth interviews by authors who had access to confidential documents and project data, outlines the seven complementary strategies that characterize exactly how Microsoft competes and operates, including the "Brain Trust" of talented employees and exceptional management; "bang for the buck" competitive strategies and clear organizational goals that produce self-critiquing, learning, and improving; a flexible, incremental approach to product development; and a relentless pursuit of future markets. Cusumano and Selby's masterful analysis successfully uncovers the distinctive way in which Microsoft has combined all of the elements necessary to get to the top of an enormously important industry - and stay there.

Summary

Over the last 50 years, humanity has developed an extraordinary shared utility: the global positioning system. Omnipresent, free, and available to all, GPS powers everything from your phone to the Internet to the Mars Rover. Greg Milner tells the sweeping story of GPS, from its conceptual origins as a bomb guidance system to its present ubiquity. While GPS has revolutionized methods of timekeeping, navigation, and seismological prediction, it has also altered human behavior, introducing phenomena such as "death by GPS", in which drivers blindly follow their devices into deserts, lakes, and impassable mountains. Milner also shows the desperate vulnerabilities in the system we now use to predict the weather, track prisoners, and land airplanes. Delving into the neuroscience of cognitive maps and spatial recognition, Milner's inventive and timely book is at once a grand history of the scientific urge toward precision and perfection and a revelatory philosophy of how humans understand themselves in the world.

Why are certain regions -- Cambridge, England, in the 1920s and Silicon Valley today -- hotbeds of innovation, while others languish? Does technology, like biological life, evolve? How do new industries, and the economy itself, emerge from technologies? In this groundbreaking work, pioneering technology thinker and economist W. Brian Arthur sets forth a boldly original way of thinking about technology that gives answers to these questions.The Nature of Technology is an elegant and powerful theory of technology's origins and evolution. It achieves for the progress of technology what Thomas Kuhn's The Structure of Scientific Revolutions did for scientific progress. Arthur explains how transformative new technologies arise and how innovation really works.Conventional thinking ascribes the invention of technologies to "thinking outside the box", or vaguely to genius or creativity, but Arthur shows that such explanations are inadequate. Rather, technologies are put together from pieces - themselves technologies - that already exist. Technologies therefore share common ancestries and combine, morph, and combine again to create further technologies. Technology evolves much as a coral reef builds itself from activities of small organisms -- it creates itself from itself; all technologies are descended from earlier technologies.Drawing on a wealth of examples, from historical inventions to the high-tech wonders of today, and writing in wonderfully engaging and clear prose, Arthur takes us on a mind-opening journey that will change the way we think about technology and how it structures our lives.

The Weather Machine

1 rating

Summary

From the acclaimed author of Tubes, a lively and surprising tour through the global network that predicts our weather, the people behind it, and what it reveals about our climate and our planet. The weather is the foundation of our daily lives. It’s a staple of small talk, the app on our smartphones, and often the first thing we check each morning. Yet behind all these humble interactions is the largest and most elaborate piece of infrastructure human beings have ever constructed - a triumph of both science and global cooperation. But what is the weather machine, and who created it?  In The Weather Machine, Andrew Blum takes listeners on a fascinating journey through the people, places, and tools of forecasting, exploring how the weather went from something we simply observed to something we could actually predict. As he travels across the planet, he visits some of the oldest and most important weather stations and watches the newest satellites blast off. He explores the dogged efforts of forecasters to create a supercomputer model of the atmosphere while trying to grasp the ongoing relevance of TV weather forecasters.  In the increasingly unpredictable world of climate change, correctly understanding the weather is vital. Written with the sharp wit and infectious curiosity Andrew Blum is known for, The Weather Machine pulls back the curtain on a universal part of our everyday lives, illuminating our changing relationships with technology, the planet, and our global community.

The Essential Engineer

Summary

From the acclaimed author of The Pencil and To Engineer Is Human, The Essential Engineer is an eye-opening exploration of the ways in which science and engineering must work together to address our world's most pressing issues, from dealing with climate change and the prevention of natural disasters to the development of efficient automobiles and the search for renewable energy sources. While the scientist may identify problems, it falls to the engineer to solve them. It is the inherent practicality of engineering, which takes into account structural, economic, environmental, and other factors that science often does not consider, that makes engineering vital to answering our most urgent concerns. Henry Petroski takes us inside the research, development, and debates surrounding the most critical challenges of our time, exploring the feasibility of biofuels, the progress of battery-operated cars, and the question of nuclear power. He gives us an in-depth investigation of the various options for renewable energy - among them solar, wind, tidal, and ethanol - explaining the benefits and risks of each. Will windmills soon populate our landscape the way they did in previous centuries? Will synthetic trees, said to be more efficient at absorbing harmful carbon dioxide than real trees, soon dot our prairies? Will we construct a sunshade in outer space to protect ourselves from dangerous rays? In many cases, the technology already exists. Whats needed is not so much invention as engineering. Just as the great achievements of centuries past - the steamship, the airplane, the moon landin - once seemed beyond reach, the solutions to the 21st century's problems await only a similar coordination of science and engineering. Eloquently reasoned and written, The Essential Engineer identifies and illuminates these problems and, above all, sets out a course for putting ideas into action.

The Economic Singularity

Summary

The Economic Singularity is the time when most people cannot find employment, because machines can do everything that humans can do for money cheaper, faster, and better than they can. Some people say this will never happen, but most AI professionals think it will, although they disagree about when. Artificial intelligence (AI) is already superhuman at absorbing and processing information. Robots are becoming increasingly dextrous, flexible, and safe to be around (except the military ones). AI is our most powerful technology, and you need to understand it. This new third edition of Calum Chace’s best-selling book is substantially updated and extended. It argues that the Economic Singularity is the most important challenge facing humanity in the first half of the 21st century - and also its most exciting opportunity. Self-driving cars and smartphones you can have a conversation with may be the canaries in the coal mine, providing a wake-up call for everyone who isn’t yet paying attention. All jobs will be affected, from fast food McJobs to lawyers and journalists.  The fashionable belief that Universal Basic Income is the solution is only partly correct. We are probably going to need an entirely new economic system, and we should start planning for the Economic Singularity soon. Chace argues that the outcome can be very good - a world in which machines do all the boring jobs and humans do pretty much what they please. But he warns there are major risks, which we can only avoid by being alert to the possible futures and planning how to avoid the negative ones. Chace has been writing about AI since 1980, and has written two best-selling non-fiction books, and also two novels on the subject. In 2017, he co-founded the think tank, the Economic Singularity Foundation.

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.

The Art of Deception

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.

How will artificial intelligence affect crime, war, justice, jobs, society, and our very sense of being human? The rise of AI has the potential to transform our future more than any other technology - and there's nobody better qualified or situated to explore that future than Max Tegmark, an MIT professor who's helped mainstream research on how to keep AI beneficial. How can we grow our prosperity through automation without leaving people lacking income or purpose? What career advice should we give today's kids? How can we make future AI systems more robust so that they do what we want without crashing, malfunctioning, or getting hacked? Should we fear an arms race in lethal autonomous weapons? Will machines eventually outsmart us at all tasks, replacing humans on the job market and perhaps altogether? Will AI help life flourish like never before or give us more power than we can handle? What sort of future do you want? This book empowers you to join what may be the most important conversation of our time. It doesn't shy away from the full range of viewpoints or from the most controversial issues - from superintelligence to meaning, consciousness, and the ultimate physical limits on life in the cosmos.

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!

Summary

The dramatic, larger-than-life true story behind the founding of Oculus and its quest for virtual reality, by the best-selling author of Console Wars. 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.

Machine Learning for Beginners

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.

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. A Macmillan Audio production from Flatiron Books PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

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?

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.

Turning Text into Gold

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.

Do you want to learn how artificial intelligence can be applied in your company, in marketing, and how AI is revolutionizing our life in healthcare and medicine? If yes, then keep reading.... What comes to your mind when you hear the word artificial intelligence (AI)? Perhaps you think of a science fiction movie from the likes of Orson Scott Card or other famed authors. Maybe you're thinking of Transformers or Wall-E from Disney. The Disneyization of AI has made it seem like it's a world of pure fantasy that only exists within the human imagination. However, the reality is that we are not far away from using AI in everyday life. Our use of AI continues to increase with each passing year. As we use Amazon, streaming music devices, and other AI that predicts our choices, we realize that machines and technology are starting to permeate every aspect of our existence. Our mobile devices also come with features that include AI.  It is believed by many, at least by people who are paying attention, that artificial intelligence will be the thing that distinguishes the world of the future from the world we live in today. Artificial intelligence has already become ubiquitous in ways that people do not realize. Sure, many men and women can point to technologies like Alexa and Siri that make their lives easier, but the average person is not aware that all aspects of modern-day life are being impacted by AI. What this means for the smart, savvy business person is that there are many potential business applications for AI in the world of tomorrow that are waiting for the right person to open that door. This audiobook will contain helpful and concise chapters on AI topics, which can be applied to the business.

Summary

A provocative and inspiring look at the future of humanity and science from world-renowned scientist and best-selling author Martin Rees Humanity has reached a critical moment. Our world is unsettled and rapidly changing, and we face existential risks over the next century. Various outcomes - good and bad - are possible. Yet our approach to the future is characterized by short-term thinking, polarizing debates, alarmist rhetoric, and pessimism. In this short, exhilarating book, renowned scientist and best-selling author Martin Rees argues that humanity’s prospects depend on our taking a very different approach to planning for tomorrow. The future of humanity is bound to the future of science and hinges on how successfully we harness technological advances to address our challenges. If we are to use science to solve our problems while avoiding its dystopian risks, we must think rationally, globally, collectively, and optimistically about the long term. Advances in biotechnology, cybertechnology, robotics, and artificial intelligence - if pursued and applied wisely - could empower us to boost the developing and developed world and overcome the threats humanity faces on Earth, from climate change to nuclear war. At the same time, further advances in space science will allow humans to explore the solar system and beyond with robots and AI. But there is no “Plan B” for Earth - no viable alternative within reach if we do not care for our home planet. Rich with fascinating insights into cutting-edge science and technology, this accessible book will captivate anyone who wants to understand the critical issues that will define the future of humanity on Earth and beyond.

Summary

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!

Artificial Intelligence for Beginners

Summary

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

If you want to avoid getting hacked, having your information spread, and risking financial loss, then pay attention.... Do you create tons of accounts you will never again visit?  Does your password contain a sequence of numbers, such as “123456”?  Do you automatically click all links and download all email attachments coming from your friends?  This audiobook will show you just how incredibly lucky you are that nobody's hacked you before. With this handy little book as your starting point, you can finally go from a starry-eyed internet user to a paranoid cybersecurity geek.  With plenty of examples, this audiobook will show you that the internet is not merely a way to watch cute cat videos; it's a battlefield, a military invention that was accidentally found to be capable of overpowering any threat economically, digitally and politically.  From the crudest forums to the most sophisticated online services, there is a war going on, and, whether you want it or not, you're involved by the very fact you're here, so better arm yourself with knowledge. Here’s just a tiny fraction of what you’ll discover: How the internet is held together with a pinky swear How hackers use raunchy photos to eke out private information Examples of preposterous social engineering attacks Equally preposterous defense from those attacks How people in charge don't even realize what hacking means How there's only one surefire way to protect against hacking Research on past, present, and future hacking methods Difference between good and bad hackers How to lower your exposure to hacking Why companies pester you to attach a phone number to an account Why social media is the most insecure way to spend your afternoon And much, much more....

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.

Summary

A Huffington Post Definitive Tech Book of 2013 Artificial Intelligence helps choose what books you buy, what movies you see, and even who you date. 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?

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.

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).

Summary

Ever feel like you don’t even own the hardware and software you paid dearly for?  Ever get the impression that you have to ask for permission before installing or changing a program on your device?  Ever feel like Facebook and Instagram are listening to your conversations to show you relevant ads?  You’re not alone.  Half-baked products and services that chip away at your sense of ownership, independence, and privacy are a part of a global wave of corporate indifference that micromanages and spies on honest, uniformed customers. None of it is intentional or meant to cause harm, which makes it all the more damning.  There’s a silver lining in all of this, and that is ethical hacking. This book will shine a light on how engineers think and show you how to discern their original intentions, helping you adopt their attitude and perfect their products despite managerial crud doing their worst to stop you.  In a world where everything is slowly becoming more managed and overbearing, this audiobook is an attempt to take back some of that original awesomeness envisioned by engineers and at least make your world a slightly better place.  Here’s just a tiny fraction of the topics covered in this audiobook:  Fighting against companies Ethical hacking defined War on the internet Engineer’s mind The almighty EULA The danger of defaults John Deere Copyright YouTube ContentID Tracking users DRM GEMA, the copyright police Torrents Sports channels Megaupload and Anonymous Julian Assange Patents Penetration testing Jailbreaking Android/iPhone Shut up Cortana How an hacker could go about hacking your WiFi and much, much more!

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.

Computational Thinking

3 ratings

Summary

A few decades into the digital era, scientists discovered that thinking in terms of computation made possible an entirely new way of organizing scientific investigation; eventually, every field had a computational branch: computational physics, computational biology, computational sociology. More recently, "computational thinking" has become part of the K-12 curriculum. But what is computational thinking? This volume in the MIT Press Essential Knowledge series offers an accessible overview.  The authors explain that computational thinking (CT) is not a set of concepts for programming; it is a way of thinking that is honed through practice: the mental skills for designing computations to do jobs for us, and for explaining and interpreting the world as a complex of information processes. Mathematically trained experts (known as "computers") who performed complex calculations as teams engaged in CT long before electronic computers. The authors identify six dimensions of today's highly developed CT - methods, machines, computing education, software engineering, computational science, and design - and cover each in a chapter. Along the way, they debunk inflated claims for CT and computation while making clear the power of CT in all its complexity and multiplicity.

SQL Programming and Coding

Summary

The truth is SQL stands for structured query language. Many people scoff dubiously when it is announced that SQL is, indeed, a programming language. When people think of programming languages, all that comes to their mind are C++, Python, Java, etc. People disregard SQL as a programming language because of its interface structure and limited functionality. However, they fail to understand that while C++ and Python are third level programming languages, and hence more developed, it doesn’t change the fact that SQL falls under the umbrella of programming languages.  Yes, SQL is a programming language that is used for a wide range of activities such as querying, retrieving, and extracting data from relational databases. In addition to this, SQL also aids Microsoft in the definition and creation of structures based on relational databases such as tables and views.  The demand for this old, simple language is increasing rapidly because of its compatible nature. A person working on SQL can shift from one language from another, like Microsoft SQL, FoxPro, and My SQL. The demand for SQL is still high, as it caters to many fields such as database management and development. Moreover, it plays a fundamental role in activities such as creating reports, business and data analysis, and of course, computer programming. If you think SQL is a dying language, then reconsider. Here are a few reasons why it is not: Knowledge of SQL creates opportunities for diverse career options The corporate world is using SQL to keep track of their database, meaning having knowledge of SQL is a helpful trait when it comes to finding jobs Knowledge of SQL helps you understand the origins of programming languages and overall sense of computer programming SQL Programming and Coding is a guide to help you learn the SQL language used by apps and organizations and how to add, remove, and update data. The SQL language, instead of dying out, is proving to be very useful in the recent times. Many of the big companies and corporate offices have turned to this simple language for keeping an efficient tab of their huge databases. Therefore, having a basic knowledge of this language can prove to be extremely beneficial for you if your interests lie in the plane of monetary gains.  The goal of this audiobook is simple: to help people learn the basics of SQL and explain to them how it is used by apps and organizations.  You will also learn: SQL programming and coding Data definition language  Steps for adding, updating, removing data from a database SQL joins and unions  Steps to write stored procedures and functions SQL transactions Would you like to know more?

Summary

Python is getting popular with the dawn of each day owing to its vast applications. You can find lots of books on Python on the market, but you need the best one to learn from scratch. This book is different from the others because it contains practical examples of Python codes that you can take, edit, customize, and run in the editor. I find this method the most useful. You will also get to see the display when a program has run its course so that there is no ambiguity. The most interesting chapter in the book is about Python classes, in which you will learn how to create models of real-life objects in Python. You can create game characters, animated models, and some useful software for your business. This section is really amazing!  I recommend that you take a notebook and a pen and take notes while you listen. I also recommend that you keep your Python editor on and practice the codes that I have given in the book to match whether you are getting the same results or not.  In this book, you’ll discover:  Installing Python on Windows  Python editor and interpreter  Python syntax, comments, and data types  Python lists  Modifying lists  Python tuples  If statements  Python dictionaries  Python loops and user input  Python functions  Python classes  Cat class  Used car class  Simple Python calculator  Rolling the dice  Guess the number  Now is your chance to get started with this simple and effective guide!

Computer Programming Javascript

Summary

If you want to learn the programming language that allows you to master the websites or if you want to improve your skills with this language, then keep listening. What is JavaScript?  JavaScript is an object-oriented scripting language, which is lightweight and works in cross-platform such as Mack, Linux, or Windows. It is a scripting language created in 1995 by Netscape as a means of validating forms while offering interactive content for websites. The language has evolved over time with it being used by various web browsers.   Why should I study JavaScript?   You should study JavaScript because it is among the three fundamental languages every web developer must learn and understand. With HTML, you can define your web page contents whereas CSS allows you to identify your web page layout; however, with JavaScript, you can program the actions of these web pages.  JavaScript has changed the way things are done. Initially, after filling a form, one had to submit it to the server so that it could be checked for any anomalies. If anomalies were found, the server would return the form to the user in order to correct the details. With JavaScript, validation is done before the form can be submitted to the server. The user is able to know any errors done while filling the form and correct them accordingly. This has made things easy for users. This guide covers the following topics:  Use of a global variable as a cache  The basics of javascript function and scope  Loop constructs  An introduction to es6  Form  Iframe and multimedia  The document object model  Clauses  Operators, data types and other priorities  Document object model (dom)  Events (not the kind you celebrate)  A storing information in variables  Javascript essentials  Regular expressions  Basic data types of variables  The window object  Maps and sets  And more! "Is this the book for me?" Sure, it is. Because this guidebook is written with the intention to help both beginners and professionals to understand the programming language for the web more efficiently.  So now, scroll up and click the "Buy Now" button.

Coding Games

Summary

The Complete Three-Book Series on Coding Games  Book 1  Do you want a comprehensive guide to everything you need to know to start making your first game? If your answer to this question is "yes", then this is the book for you. We’ll be going over every facet of game programming, ranging from how to set your expectations of what you're getting into, right up to creating the games themselves.  In this book you’ll discover.... How to program a vast variety of different game genres.  The most important game design elements crucial to your success.  How to use the Gosu library to make games in Ruby.  The best way to ensure your RPG Maker game is better than the rest.  A crash-course in Unity to kick start your professional career  This book won’t just teach you how to code. Rather, it’ll teach you the ins and outs of game design, so that you can make a game that’s actually fun and entertaining, rather than just a classroom project.  Book 2  Learning how to code properly sometimes can be very perplexing and needlessly complicated. Or even worse, boring.  Instead of actively learning new programs or exciting new applications of your code, you are forced to go through hundreds of boring texts, all filled with confusing texts and hopelessly mysterious symbols.  This wasn’t what you expected! Surely there must be a better way to learn how to program and make coding more fun!  And there is. There exists one simple solution, that, in one fell swoop, can transform learning how to code from an insanely boring experience to an entertaining pleasant journey. How you wonder?  By making the whole experience a game!  In this book, Coding Games, we will show you what coding is, its fundamental concepts, and how you can master the basic principles of coding through games.  For anyone tired of learning to code boringly, or just someone looking for a more fun way to attract their young ones into computer programming, this book will be quite an illuminating listen for you! Book3  This book's ideology is simple and straight-forward: equip the user with the most important concepts to catapult your game development skills. When looking for a good book that explains game programming, listeners are usually bombarded with information from the author without any context.  Often, code doesn’t make sense, hasn’t been explained properly, and the concepts the author tries to explain are unclear. The main reason for this is that authors, when writing technical books such as this, assume that the listener will have the context for every small detail they leave out and every major detail they choose to convey.  This book was written with particular care to keep the listener's perspective in mind instead of the author’s knowledge, because at the end of the day, the books' purpose is to teach you, rather than leave you disappointed. This book stays true to its purpose and builds upon the content discussed in the previous series. Even though listeners coming to the advanced level of game programming should be confident in their intermediate and basic level understanding of the topic, the chapters' content is careful not to leave anything ambiguous to the listener.

AWS Lambda: A Guide to Serverless Microservices takes a comprehensive look at developing "serverless" workloads using the new Amazon Web Services Lambda service.    Lambda enables users to develop code that executes in response to events - API calls, file uploads, schedules, etc. - and upload it without worrying about managing traditional server metrics such as disk space, memory, or CPU usage. With its "per execution" cost model, Lambda can enable organizations to save hundreds or thousands of dollars on computing costs.   With in-depth walk-throughs and complete code samples, the listener is guided through the step-by-step process of creating new functions, responding to infrastructure events, developing API backends, executing code at specified intervals, and much more.   Since its introduction at AWS re:Invent in 2014, AWS Lambda has continued to be one of the fastest growing AWS services. With its arrival, a new application-architecture diagram paradigm was created - referred to as "serverless". AWS now provides a number of different services that allow you to build full assistants, Internet of Things (IoT) backends, and more that can all be fully serverless. For the logic layer of a serverless application, you can execute your business logic using AWS Lambda.   Developers and organizations are finding AWS Lambda is enabling much faster development speed and experimentation than is possible when deploying applications in a traditional server-based environment.   This audiobook is meant to provide you with a broad overview of AWS Lambda, its features, a hands-on and in-depth guide to serverless microservices, and a slew of recommendations.   So what're you waiting for?

Deep Learning with Python

Summary

This audiobook doesn’t have any superpowers or magic formula to help you master the art of neural networks and deep learning. We believe that such learning is all in your heart. You need to learn a concept by heart and then brainstorm its different possibilities. I don’t claim that after listening to this audiobook you will become an expert in Python and Deep Learning Neural Networks. Instead, you will, for sure, have a basic understanding of deep learning and its implications and real-life applications. Most of the time, what confuses us is the application of a certain thing in our lives. Once we know that, we can relate the subject to that particular thing and learn. An interesting thing is that neural networks also learn the same way. This makes it easier to learn about them when we know the basics. Let’s take a look at what this audiobook has to offer: The basics of Python including data types, operators, and numbers. Advanced programming in Python with Python expressions, types, and much more. A comprehensive overview of deep learning and its link to the smart systems that we are now building. An overview of how artificial neural networks work in real life. An overview of PyTorch. An overview of TensorFlow. An overview of Keras. How to create a convolutional neural network. A comprehensive understanding of deep learning applications and its ethical implications, including in the present and future. This audiobook offers you the basic knowledge about Python and Deep Learning Neural Networks that you will need to lay the foundation for future studies. This audiobook will start you on the road to mastering the art of deep learning neural networks. When I say that I don’t have the magic formula to make you learn, I mean it. My point is that you should learn Python coding and Python libraries to build neural networks by practicing hard. The more you practice, the better it is for your skills. It is only after thorough and in depth practice that you will be able to create your own programs. Unlike other books, I don’t claim that this audiobook will make you a master of deep learning after a single listen. That’s not realistic, in fact, it's even a bit absurd. What I claim is that you will definitely learn about the basics. The rest is practice. The more you practice the better you code.

Cover art for Leading Exponential Change

Leading Exponential Change

Summary

Leading Exponential Change (Second Edition) unveils the secrets of enterprise Agility. The way companies manage change has undergone dramatic shifts, and organizations have tried to adapt to relentless market innovations by using artificial intelligence, Big Data, the Scrum Framework, increasingly connected people, and new mind-sets such as Agile or Lean. But all these approaches have only established disruptive change as a new, relentless reality.  In Leading Exponential Change, world-renowned consultant Erich R. Bühler shares the secrets that differentiate truly remarkable companies from those that fail to adapt to today’s constantly changing market conditions.  During his years on the front lines, the author recognized that no two companies were the same - and that what worked in one enterprise might not work in another. He studied a wide range of organizations to determine the specific behaviors and mind-sets needed to embrace change. One thing became clear: Human beings are not physiologically prepared for constant alterations in processes, roles, and ways of working. Realizing that a new approach was needed, Bühler developed a set of revolutionary principles and techniques to create responsive people and organizations that challenged traditional thinking (and many Agile concepts).  Drawing on his experience as an international change consultant, the author takes you deep into why companies struggle to adapt even when they have the right people. He also analyzes the reasons some consultants face endless obstacles and resistance to change while others succeed.  This ground-breaking book offers new foundations to help company leaders, managers, Agile consultants, HR representatives, mentors, and scrum masters become skilled at helping others to influence change.

Machine Learning with Python

Summary

Before going into the field of machine learning, we begin to answer the most important question. Why Python?  The answer is simple: it is a powerful and accessible language. Python has become the most widely used programming language for data processing, since it allows you to neglect all the boring aspects of programming, offering an environment in which it is possible to put ideas into practice and see concepts in action.  Knowledge is acquired through learning and the key to doing this is our enthusiasm, but mastery of concepts can only come with practice. The road ahead may sometimes be fraught with obstacles and some topics may be more complex than others, but this opportunity and focus on python and machine learning helps to explore, learn and advance. This book contains powerful techniques to your arsenal, which will help you solve even the most difficult problems, based on the available data.  Through machine learning, we instruct computers to process, learn and draw useful knowledge from this otherwise impenetrable mountain of data. Starting from the big supercomputers that support Google's search engines, to the smartphones that we all have in our pockets, we constantly rely on machine learning algorithms to try to move the world around us, often without even realizing it.  Machine learning, or the application and study of algorithms that extract useful information from the shapeless mass of data, is the most interesting field of computer science. We live in an era where data is available in an overabundant quantity. Using self-learning algorithms in the field of machine learning, we are able to transform this data into knowledge. Thanks to the many and increasingly powerful open source libraries that have been developed over the last few years, there has probably never been a better time to deal with machine learning and python and to learn how to use these powerful algorithms to identify patterns in data and make predictions about future events.  So get started with your knowledge of Machine Learning with Python with this book!

Arduino Programming

Summary

Programming was once considered an activity reserved for some people of above-average talent and intelligence, elected by the gods of mathematics. This vision is changing. The activity of programming is becoming more and more present, especially after the explosion of the internet, in general, and the internet of things (IoT). This is largely thanks to programmable devices like Arduino, which offer us a development platform that makes programming so easy that even those who never thought they could do so can succeed. And the purpose of this book Arduino Programming is precisely to open the door by introducing in a didactic way this powerful programming tool that is, at once, useful, beautiful, fun, and powerful. This audiobook is part of a series of Arduino, and the study is done gradually, in increasing order of complexity. The first book focuses on presenting Arduino as a concept and development platform, teaching you how to install and test the system. It shows the basic components used for prototyping, gives a detailed description of the IDE features and explains the concepts needed to understand the process of programming, as well as transferring the program from the programming environment to Arduino memory, concluding with a hands-on experiment using a protoboard and a LED. The book is narrated in simple language to make it accessible, and every effort has been made to clarify the concepts indispensable for perfect understanding of the process of programming a microcontroller, making it useful to the widest possible audience and thus preparing the foundation that serves as a starting point for further study and the basis for what will follow in the other two volumes that continue the series.

Clean Code

Summary

Even bad code can function. But if code isn’t clean, it can bring a development organization to its knees. Every year, countless hours and significant resources are lost because of poorly written code. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Noted software expert Robert C. Martin presents a revolutionary paradigm with Clean Code: A Handbook of Agile Software Craftsmanship. Martin has teamed up with his colleagues from Object Mentor to distill their best agile practice of cleaning code “on the fly” into a book that will instill within you the values of a software craftsman and make you a better programmer - but only if you work at it. Clean Code is divided into three parts. The first 13 chapters, fully contained in the audio, describes the principles, patterns, and practices of writing clean code. The second part, chapters 14 to 16, consists of several case studies of increasing complexity and is included in a pdf that comes with your purchase. Each case study is an exercise in cleaning up code - of transforming a code base that has some problems into one that is sound and efficient. You’ll be reading code - lots of code. And you will be challenged to think about what’s right about that code, and what’s wrong with it. The third part, chapter 17, is provided both in the audio and the pdf. It is the payoff: a single chapter containing a list of heuristics and “smells” gathered while creating the case studies. The result is a knowledge base that describes the way we think when we write, read, and clean code. Listeners will come away from Clean Code understanding: How to tell the difference between good and bad code How to write good code and how to transform bad code into good code How to create good names, good functions, good objects, and good classes How to format code for maximum readability How to implement complete error handling without obscuring code logic How to unit test and practice test-driven development This book is a must for any developer, software engineer, project manager, team lead, or systems analyst with an interest in producing better code.

Coding in Python

Summary

Many advanced guides on the internet tell you about fancy tricks and advanced concepts when working with Python. But the truth of the matter is that there are no "advanced" concepts in programming with Python.  The only concept that can be introduced as advanced at this point is the complexity of implementing different elements during coding.  Many books ambiguously present their own "advanced" versions of the same concept being learned at the beginner and intermediate level. In this book, the focus is not on simply "concepts" alone. On the contrary, you will find that the majority of the book focuses on practical applications.  We’ll implement what you have learned when you initially began your journey of learning Python programming to explain an entirely new perspective of accomplishing tasks with greater effectiveness and efficiency.  The main hurdle in programming is encountering unexpected errors and not knowing how to handle them because of inexperience. This book addresses such problems and ensures that you will be able to create a fully-fledged application on your own and even handle the distribution process. Here’s a quick run-down of what this book features:  Emphasis on practical instead of theoretical concepts Elaboration of code examples Introduction of advanced implementation practices A friendly tone and easy to understand explanations and examples Limited use of jargon and complex theory Focus on tasks that you will most likely end up doing, such as creating packages, building applications, etc.   If you’re interested in learning to master the skills of Python then this is the book for you.
