AIQ: How People and Machines Are Smarter Together

St. Martin's Press - Aiq 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. These machines, from smart phones to talking robots to self-driving cars, are remaking the world in the 21st century in the same way that the Industrial Revolution remade the world in the 19th century.

Levitt, bestselling co-author of freakonomicsfrom leading data scientists Nick Polson and James Scott, what everyone needs to know to understand how artificial intelligence is 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.

AIQ: How People and Machines Are Smarter Together - 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 D. Along the way, healthier, you'll 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 you to overcome some of your built-in cognitive weaknesses, giving you a chance to lead a happier, more fulfilled life.

. Aiq will teach you that language―but in an unconventional way, anchored in stories rather than equations. There comes a time in the life of a subject when someone steps up and writes the book about it.





Superminds: The Surprising Power of People and Computers Thinking Together

Little, Brown and Company - In this groundbreaking book, science, democracies, the founding director of the MIT Center for Collective Intelligence, government, shows how groups of people working together in superminds -- like hierarchies, and communities -- have been responsible for almost all human achievements in business, Thomas Malone, markets, and beyond.

But there's another kind of entity that can be far smarter: groups of people. By understanding how these collectively intelligent groups work, we can learn how to harness their genius to achieve our human goals. If you're like most people, you probably believe that humans are the most intelligent animals on our planet.

Superminds: The Surprising Power of People and Computers Thinking Together - . From the founding director of the miT Center for Collective Intelligence comes a fascinating look at the remarkable capacity for intelligence exhibited by groups of people and computers working together. And although it will probably happen more gradually than many people expect, artificially intelligent computers will amplify the power of these superminds by doing increasingly complex kinds of thinking.

Together, these changes will have far-reaching implications for everything from the way we buy groceries and plan business strategies to how we respond to climate change, and even for democracy itself. Drawing on cutting-edge science and insights from a remarkable range of disciplines, Superminds articulates a bold -- and utterly fascinating -- picture of the future that will change the ways you work and live, both with other people and with computers.

And these collectively intelligent human groups are about to get much smarter. Using dozens of striking examples and case studies, Malone shows how computers can help create more intelligent superminds simply by connecting humans to one another in a variety of rich, new ways.

Prediction Machines: The Simple Economics of Artificial Intelligence

Harvard Business Review Press - The impact of ai will be profound, but the economic framework for understanding it is surprisingly simple. Our businesses and personal lives are riddled with such decisions. Prediction tools increase productivity--operating machines, handling documents, communicating with customers.

The Book of Why: The New Science of Cause and Effect

Basic Books - It shows us the essence of human thought and key to artificial intelligence. Pearl's work enables us to know not just whether one thing causes another: it lets us explore the world that is and the worlds that could have been. The causal revolution, instigated by Judea Pearl and his colleagues, has cut through a century of confusion and established causality--the study of cause and effect--on a firm scientific basis.

A turing award-winning computer scientist and statistician shows how understanding causality has revolutionized science and will revolutionize artificial intelligence"Correlation is not causation. This mantra, chanted by scientists for more than a century, has led to a virtual prohibition on causal talk.

The Book of Why: The New Science of Cause and Effect - Anyone who wants to understand either needs The Book of Why. His work explains how we can know easy things, like whether it was rain or a sprinkler that made a sidewalk wet; and how to answer hard questions, like whether a drug cured an illness.
