Artificial Intelligence: A Guide for Thinking Humans

Author: Melanie Mitchell Narrator: Abby Craden, Melanie Mitchell, Tony Wolf Release Date: October 2019

This program includes an introduction read by the author. No recent scientific enterprise has proved as alluring, terrifying, and filled with extravagant promise and frustrating setbacks as artificial intelligence. The award-winning author Melanie Mitchell, a leading computer scientist, now reveals its turbulent history and the recent surge of apparent successes, grand hopes, and emerging fears that surround AI. In Artificial Intelligence, Mitchell turns to the most urgent questions concerning AI today: How intelligent-really-are the best AI programs? How do they work? What can they actually do, and when do they fail? How humanlike do we expect them to become, and how soon do we need to worry about them surpassing us? Along the way, she introduces the dominant methods of modern AI and machine learning, describing cutting-edge AI programs, their human inventors, and the historical lines of thought that led to recent achievements. She meets with fellow experts like Douglas Hofstadter, the cognitive scientist and Pulitzer Prize-winning author of the modern classic Gödel, Escher, Bach, who explains why he is "terrified" about the future of AI. She explores the profound disconnect between the hype and the actual achievements in AI, providing a clear sense of what the field has accomplished and how much farther it has to go. Interweaving stories about the science and the people behind it, Artificial Intelligence brims with clear-sighted, captivating, and approachable accounts of the most interesting and provocative modern work in AI, flavored with Mitchell's humor and personal observations. This frank, lively book will prove an indispensable guide to understanding today's AI, its quest for "human-level" intelligence, and its impacts on all of our futures.

Artificial Intelligence: What Everyone Needs to Know Audiobook

Artificial Intelligence: What Everyone Needs to Know

Author: Jerry Kaplan Narrator: John Pruden Release Date: May 2017

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.

Will robots take over the world? Or at least our jobs?  How far has artificial intelligence (AI) progressed, and where will it go from here? How important is AI? What role will it play in the modern age, when we already have so much technology? Wouldn't it be great to have a glimpse of the future and predict what will happen to jobs, machines, computers, and the next generation?  Artificial intelligence, robots, and machines have played a major role in the transformation from the industrial revolution to where we are at today. There is no doubt scientists are developing more and more sophisticated technology to further enhance and automate tasks and the convenience and efficiency of our civilization.  But what of the threats? What about the speed and the things we don't understand?  In this guide, you will learn new insights about AI and its various uses and possibilities. Topics include:  A brief historical overview of how the developments took place so far.The ultimate goal of using artificial intelligence. How careers and jobs will change and why it's okay they do.Everyday circumstances that get affected by AI and how they will change in the future. Limitations of AI and ethical questions that need to be raised. How we can embrace AI and become happier, healthier, and better in many other ways through automation. With all the hype about machine learning, automated processes, and robots in the making, it is imperative we keep up and perhaps even stay ahead of what will happen and how we can leverage the future by foretelling it and anticipating the changes that lie ahead. Let that be you!

Artificial Unintelligence: How Computers Misunderstand the World Audiobook

Artificial Unintelligence: How Computers Misunderstand the World

Author: Meredith Broussard Narrator: Andrea Emmes Release Date: January 2019

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 U.S. 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.

Augmented: Life in The Smart Lane Audiobook

Augmented: Life in The Smart Lane

Author: Alex Lightman, Andy Lark, Brett King, Jp Rangaswami Narrator: Steven Jay Cohen Release Date: August 2017

The Internet and smartphone are just the latest in a 250-year-long cycle of disruption that has continuously changed the way we live, the way we work, and the way we interact. The coming Augmented Age, however, promises a level of disruption, behavioral shifts, and changes that are unparalleled. While consumers today are camping outside of an Apple store waiting to be one of the first to score a new Apple Watch or iPhone, the next generation of wearables will be able to predict if we're likely to have a heart attack and recommend a course of action. We watch news of Google's self-driving cars, but don't likely realize this means progressive cities will have to ban human drives in the next decade because us humans are too risky. Following on from the Industrial or Machine Age, the Space Age and the Digital Age, the Augmented Age will be based on four key disruptive themes-Artificial Intelligence, Experience Design, Smart Infrastructure, and HealthTech. Historically the previous "ages" bought significant disruption and changes, but on a net basis jobs were created, wealth was enhanced, and the health and security of society improved. What will the Augmented Age bring? Will robots take our jobs, and AI's subsume us as inferior intelligences, or will this usher in a new age of abundance? Augmented is a book on future history, but more than that, it is a story about how you will live your life in a world that will change more in the next twenty years than it has in the last 250 years. Are you ready to adapt? Because if history proves anything, you don't have much of a choice.

Because Internet: Understanding how language is changing Audiobook

Because Internet: Understanding how language is changing

Author: Gretchen Mcculloch Narrator: Gretchen Mcculloch Release Date: October 2019

Brought to you by Penguin. THE ACCLAIMED NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER. Because Internet is for anyone who's ever puzzled over how to punctuate a text message or wondered where memes come from. It's the perfect book for understanding how the internet is changing the English language, why that's a good thing, and what our online interactions reveal about who we are. Language is humanity's most spectacular open-source project, and the internet is making our language change faster and in more interesting ways than ever before. Internet conversations are structured by the shape of our apps and platforms, from the grammar of status updates to the protocols of comments and @replies. Linguistically inventive online communities spread new slang and jargon with dizzying speed. What's more, social media is a vast laboratory of unedited, unfiltered words where we can watch language evolve in real time. Even the most absurd-looking slang has genuine patterns behind it. Internet linguist Gretchen McCulloch explores the deep forces that shape human language and influence the way we communicate with one another. She explains how your first social internet experience influences whether you prefer 'LOL' or 'lol', why ~sparkly tildes~ succeeded where centuries of proposals for irony punctuation had failed, what emoji have in common with physical gestures, and how the artfully disarrayed language of animal memes like lolcats and doggo made them more likely to spread. 'McCulloch is such a disarming writer - lucid, friendly, unequivocally excited about her subject - that I began to marvel at the flexibility of the online language she describes, with its numerous shades of subtlety.' New York Times (c) Gretchen McCullock 2019 (P) Penguin Random House LLC 2019
