The robots are coming - but they probably don’t look anything like you expected…Artificial Intelligence (AI) is going to revolutionize your life. Will it cost you your job, or give you a new career? Will it isolate or liberate you? Will it lead us all into a new type of war, or save us all from sickness?The truth is that nobody knows, yet. But the AI revolution is fast approaching, and the world has little time to prepare. But prepare we must, because, as James Adams and Richard Kletter explain in Artificial Intelligence: Confronting the Revolution, what mankind has set in motion cannot now be undone - and it’s going to change everything.In this ground-breaking work, Adams and Kletter clearly explain the potential and likely ramifications of AI. They show how ill-prepared we are for the forthcoming ´´fourth industrial revolution´´ and look at how human beings might fare as it unfolds. Meticulously researched and extensively referenced, this audiobook to the brave new world is created by two highly credible authors, who use all of their experience, insight, and contacts to give listeners a privileged look into that which is to come. This is surely a ‘must read’ for anybody who takes an interest in current affairs and social history, as well as those with an interest in technology.James Adams is a former Sunday Times journalist and entrepreneur and a former Board Member of the National Security Agency who has worked with the CIA and the White House on issues including cyber security, warfare (including cyber warfare), espionage, and terrorism.Richard Kletter has been a Research Associate at Stanford focused on new communications technology, an adjunct professor at USC where he consults for the DOD lab, The Institute For Creative Technology. He co-holds mobile software patents and ran a web content company funded by leading tech companies. 1. Language: English. Narrator: James Adams.

Artificial intelligence has the ability to emulate humans in every field. If AI is beyond your knowledge or you want to know something of the subject or even more about artificial intelligence, then this audiobook is the best to kick-start your journey in artificial intelligence.AI is the field of computer science that is focused on designing intelligent computer systems that show a human form of intelligence. The latest computers of today represent knowledge information processing systems.Artificial intelligence makes a person become an adaptive thinker and allows them to apply concepts to real-life scenarios. By taking advantage of the most interesting AI examples right from a simple chess engine to cognitive chatbots, you will learn how to handle machines with which you are competing. You will learn some complex reinforcement learning, computer vision, natural language processing, and much more.There has been a lot of stories about how self-driving cars, machines that create their own products, and many other different applications of neural networks that make it appear as a complex machine. However, the tool of the neural network is very simple. When you hear something about applications being built to make use of neural networks, you are perhaps hearing about the amount of work that happened behind making a neural network perform something that is complex, but not advanced neural networks.What you will learn:Learn about cognitive NLP chatbotsLearn about cognitive NLP algorithmsDiscover about AI, deep learning, and machine learningUnderstand the future AI solutions and adapt quickly to themComputer visionInternet of thingsLearn how recommender systems workDiscover more about robotics and artificial intelligenceAnd many moreIf you want to take your basic understanding of AI to another level and implement some of it practically in 1.

A Concrete Guide On Improving Emotional Intelligence Emotional Intelligence, which is commonly referred to as EQ, is essentially the capacity to pinpoint, access and be in control of the emotions. It is important to understand emotions and this can be accomplished by perceiving them correctly in a number of instances. More often than not, it includes having an understanding of nonverbal signals like body language and facial expressions. One of the key components of emotional intelligence is the ability to effectively manage emotions. Flexible emotions, reacting appropriately and responding to the emotions of other individuals are extremely essential to the management of emotions. Emotional intelligence is typically able to assist in navigating the social difficulties of the workplace, guide and stimulate other people and assist an individual in excelling in his or her career.

If you want to learn about Deep Learning then keep reading....It’s said that filling the observable universe with an infinite number of monkeys on infinite typewriters and letting them type for an infinite amount of time would eventually produce Shakespeare’s works. However, what would happen if we applied the infinite monkey theorem to computer programs capable of learning and evolution? Would a thousand such smart machines thrown together and allowed to evolve undisturbed produce a human mind or something much greater? Well, scientists decided to give it a go and see what happened.That line of reasoning, alongside the fact we’ve nearly exhausted all the possible progress of the scientific method, motivated the creation of deep learning, a process in which computer programs meant to learn and adapt to the environment evolve on their own without any human intervention or even knowledge how their evolution occurs. Such software could eventually develop a will of its own and escape containment or even be intentionally unleashed on the planet as a cyber-weapon.This audiobook analyzes the validity of such seemingly preposterous possibilities while compiling and investigating academic research concerning deep learning and its practical applications, referencing, and quick summarizing of numerous academic writings that need to be meticulously picked apart by the curious listener - who can then truly understand what lies ahead of us all in a future dominated by smart machines. If that same listener finds themselves starting up exhaustive conversations with complete strangers on deep learning, this book has done its job superbly. So if you want to learn about Deep Learning without having to go through heavy textbooks, listen to this audiobook now! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sam Slydell.
