Competing in the Age of AI: Strategy and Leadership When Algorithms and Networks Run the World

Author: Karim R. Lakhani, Marco Iansiti Narrator: Steven Jay Cohen Release Date: January 2020

In industry after industry, data, analytics, and AI-driven processes are transforming the nature of work. While we often still treat AI as the domain of a specific skill, business function, or sector, we have entered a new era in which AI is challenging the very concept of the firm. AI-centric organizations exhibit a new operating architecture, redefining how they create, capture, share, and deliver value. Marco Iansiti and Karim R. Lakhani show how reinventing the firm around data, analytics, and AI removes traditional constraints on scale, scope, and learning that have constrained business growth for hundreds of years. From Airbnb to Ant Financial, Microsoft to Amazon, research shows how AI-driven processes are vastly more scalable than traditional processes, drive massive scope increase, enabling companies to straddle industry boundaries, and enable powerful opportunities for learning-to drive ever more accurate, complex, and sophisticated predictions. When traditional operating constraints are removed, strategy becomes a whole new game, one whose rules and likely outcomes this book will make clear.

Author: Daniel M. Russell Narrator: Charles Constant Release Date: January 2020

How to be a great online searcher, demonstrated with step-by-step searches for answers to a series of intriguing questions (for example, 'Is that plant poisonous?'). We all know how to look up something online by typing words into a search engine. We do this so often that we have made the most famous search engine a verb: we Google it-'Japan population' or 'Nobel Peace Prize' or 'poison ivy' or whatever we want to know. But knowing how to Google something doesn't make us search experts; there's much more we can do to access the massive collective knowledge available online. In The Joy of Search, Daniel Russell shows us how to be great online researchers. We don't have to be computer geeks or a scholar searching out obscure facts; we just need to know some basic methods. Russell demonstrates these methods with step-by-step searches for answers to a series of intriguing questions-from 'what is the wrong side of a towel?' to 'what is the most likely way you will die?' Along the way, listeners will discover essential tools for effective online searches-and learn some fascinating facts and interesting stories.

Digital Etiquette: Everything you wanted to know about modern manners but were afraid to ask

Author: Victoria Turk Narrator: Cathleen Mccarron Release Date: January 2020

Brought to you by Penguin. How do you reply to your colleague's weird email? What might Debrett's say about your Tinder profile? And just how do you know if you're mansplaining? In this irreverent journey through the murky world of digital etiquette, WIRED's Victoria Turk provides an indispensable guide to minding our manners in a brave new online world. The digital revolution has put us all within a few clicks, taps and swipes of each other.

Google's unofficial motto is Don't Be Evil, but sometimes that's easier said than done. If you've ever encountered the surreal battlefields of digital life and wondered why we don't all just go analogue, this is the book for you. © Victoria Turk 2019 (P) Penguin Audio 2020

The Artist in the Machine: The World of AI-Powered Creativity Audiobook

The Artist in the Machine: The World of AI-Powered Creativity

Author: Arthur I. Miller Narrator: Adam Lofbomm Release Date: January 2020

Today's computers are composing music that sounds 'more Bach than Bach,' turning photographs into paintings in the style of Van Gogh's Starry Night, and even writing screenplays. But are computers truly creative-or are they merely tools to be used by musicians, artists, and writers? Miller, an authority on creativity, identifies the key factors essential to the creative process, from 'the need for introspection' to 'the ability to discover the key problem.' He talks to people on the cutting edge of artificial intelligence, encountering computers that mimic the brain and machines that have defeated champions in chess, Jeopardy!, and Go. In the central part of the book, Miller explores the riches of computer-created art, introducing us to artists and computer scientists who have, among much else, unleashed an artificial neural network to create a nightmarish, multi-eyed dog-cat; taught AI to imagine; developed a robot that paints; created algorithms for poetry; and produced the world's first computer-composed musical. But, Miller writes, in order to be truly creative, machines will need to step into the world. He probes the nature of consciousness and speaks to researchers trying to develop emotions and consciousness in computers. Miller argues that computers can already be as creative as humans-and someday will surpass us.

The Cuckoo's Egg: Tracking a Spy Through the Maze of Computer Espionage Audiobook

The Cuckoo's Egg: Tracking a Spy Through the Maze of Computer Espionage

Author: Cliff Stoll Narrator: Will Damron Release Date: January 2020

Before the Internet became widely known as a global tool for terrorists, one perceptive US citizen recognized its ominous potential. Armed with clear evidence of computer espionage, he began a highly personal quest to expose a hidden network of spies that threatened national security. But would the authorities back him up? Cliff Stoll's dramatic firsthand account is 'a computer-age detective story, instantly fascinating [and] astonishingly gripping'-Smithsonian. Cliff Stoll was an astronomer turned systems manager at Lawrence Berkeley Lab when a seventy-five cent accounting error alerted him to the presence of an unauthorized user on his system. The hacker's code name was 'Hunter'-a mysterious invader who managed to break into US computer systems and steal sensitive military and security information. Stoll began a one-man hunt of his own: spying on the spy. It was a dangerous game of deception, broken codes, satellites, and missile bases-a one-man sting operation that finally gained the attention of the CIA . . . and ultimately trapped an international spy ring fueled by cash, cocaine, and the KGB.

Mismatch: How Inclusion Shapes Design Audiobook

Mismatch: How Inclusion Shapes Design

Author: Kat Holmes Narrator: Kat Holmes Release Date: January 2020

Sometimes designed objects reject their users: a computer mouse that doesn't work for left-handed people, for example, or a touchscreen payment system that only works for people who read English phrases, have 20/20 vision, and use a credit card. These mismatches are the building blocks of exclusion. In Mismatch, Kat Holmes describes how design can lead to exclusion, and how design can also remedy exclusion. Holmes tells stories of pioneers of inclusive design, many of whom were drawn to work on inclusion because of their own experiences of exclusion. A gamer and designer who depends on voice recognition shows Holmes his 'Wall of Exclusion,' which displays dozens of game controllers that require two hands to operate; an architect shares her firsthand knowledge of how design can fail communities; an astronomer who began to lose her eyesight adapts a technique called 'sonification' so she can 'listen' to the stars. Designing for inclusion is not a feel-good sideline. Holmes shows how inclusion can be a source of innovation and growth, especially for digital technologies. It can be a catalyst for creativity and a boost for the bottom line as a customer base expands. And each time we remedy a mismatched interaction, we create an opportunity for more people to contribute to society in meaningful ways.

How We Learn: The New Science of Education and the Brain Audiobook

How We Learn: The New Science of Education and the Brain

Author: Stanislas Dehaene Narrator: Kaleo Griffith Release Date: January 2020

Brought to you by Penguin. In today's technological society, with an unprecedented amount of information at our fingertips, learning plays a more central role than ever. In How We Learn, Stanislas Dehaene decodes its biological mechanisms, delving into the neuronal, synaptic, and molecular processes taking place in the brain. He explains why youth is such a sensitive period, during which brain plasticity is maximal, but also assures us that our abilities continue into adulthood, and that we can enhance our learning and memory at any age. We can all 'learn to learn' by taking maximal advantage of the four pillars of the brain's learning algorithm: attention, active engagement, error feedback, and consolidation. The human brain is an extraordinary machine. Its ability to process information and adapt to circumstances by reprogramming itself is unparalleled, and it remains the best source of inspiration for recent developments in artificial intelligence. The exciting advancements in A.I. of the last twenty years reveal just as much about our remarkable abilities as they do about the potential of machines. How We Learn finds the boundary of computer science, neurobiology, and cognitive psychology to explain how learning really works and how to make the best use of the brain's learning algorithms, in our schools and universities as well as in everyday life. © Stanislas Dehaene 2020 (P) Penguin Audio 2020
