AI Narratives: A History of Imaginative Thinking about Intelligent Machines Audiobook

AI Narratives: A History of Imaginative Thinking about Intelligent Machines

Author: Kanta Dihal, Sarah Dillon, Stephen Cave Narrator: P.J. Ochlan Release Date: May 2020

This book is the first to examine the history of imaginative thinking about intelligent machines. As real Artificial Intelligence (AI) begins to touch on all aspects of our lives, this long narrative history shapes how the technology is developed, deployed, and regulated. It is therefore a crucial social and ethical issue. Part I of this book provides a historical overview from ancient Greece to the start of modernity. These chapters explore the revealing pre-history of key concerns of contemporary AI discourse, from the nature of mind and creativity to issues of power and rights, from the tension between fascination and ambivalence to investigations into artificial voices and technophobia. Part II focuses on the twentieth and twenty-first-centuries in which a greater density of narratives emerge alongside rapid developments in AI technology. These chapters reveal not only how AI narratives have consistently been entangled with the emergence of real robotics and AI, but also how they offer a rich source of insight into how we might live with these revolutionary machines. The contributions, from leading humanities and social science scholars, show that narratives about AI offer a crucial epistemic site for exploring contemporary debates about these powerful new technologies.

AI Ethics Audiobook

AI Ethics

Author: Mark Coeckelbergh Narrator: Liam Gerrard Release Date: April 2020

Artificial intelligence powers Google's search engine, enables Facebook to target advertising, and allows Alexa and Siri to do their jobs.

These and other AI applications raise complex ethical issues that are the subject of ongoing debate. This volume in the MIT Press Essential Knowledge series offers an accessible synthesis of these issues. Mark Coeckelbergh describes influential AI narratives, ranging from Frankenstein's monster to transhumanism and the technological singularity. He surveys relevant philosophical discussions: questions about the fundamental differences between humans and machines and debates over the moral status of AI. He explains the technology of AI, describing different approaches and focusing on machine learning and data science. He offers an overview of important ethical issues, including privacy concerns, responsibility and the delegation of decision making, transparency, and bias as it arises at all stages of data science processes. He also considers the future of work in an AI economy. Finally, he analyzes a range of policy proposals and discusses challenges for policymakers.

"If you wanted to introduce new methods or processes in a company in the past (and still do in some cases today), you would hire consulting firms that spent a year working on how best to implement the project and then formulating a project plan with milestones and goals. Today, there is often no time for long preliminary planning. Methods and processes are needed where changes can still be made while the project is running. Today, the business environment has become so uncertain that you can hardly plan more than six months in advance. One of the methods where less planning is done in advance and more is done right from the start is the Agile Framework. Essentially, it is a method by which requirements and solutions for products are created during an ongoing process that is characterized by teamwork, self-organization, and the needs of the end user or customer. Agile methods had their origin in software development and are now the standard when it comes to developing new software products. But they can, with small modifications, also be applied in other business areas." You'll find out in this audiobook: ... What's Agile and Agile Coaching...
