    Mustafa Suleyman, Michael Bhaskar

     

    **A Sunday Times, EconomistProspect and Financial Times Book of the Year**

     

    **SHORTLISTED FOR THE FT BUSINESS BOOK OF THE YEAR 2023**

     

    The co-founder of the pioneering AI company DeepMind sounds the alarm on the unprecedented risks to global order posed by a wave of fast-developing technologies like artificial intelligence and genetic engineering

     

    A stark and urgent warning on the unprecedented risks that a wave of fast-developing technologies poses to global order, and how we might contain them while we have the chance-from a cofounder of the pioneering AI company DeepMind

     

    We are about to cross a critical threshold in the history of our species. Everything is about to change.

     

    Soon we will live surrounded by AIs. They will carry out complex tasks operating businesses, producing unlimited digital content, running core government services and maintaining infrastructure. This will be a world of DNA printers and quantum computers, engineered pathogens and autonomous weapons, robot assistants and abundant energy. It represents nothing less than a step change in human capability.

     

    We are not prepared.

     

    As co-founder of the pioneering AI company DeepMind, Mustafa Suleyman has been at the centre of this revolution, one poised to become the single greatest accelerant of progress in history. The coming decade, he argues, will be defined by this wave of powerful, fast-proliferating new technologies. Driven by overwhelming strategic and commercial incentives, these tools will help address our global challenges and create vast wealth but also upheaval on a once-unimaginable scale.

     

    In The Coming Wave, Suleyman shows how these forces threaten the grand bargain of the nation-state, the foundation of global order. As our fragile governments sleepwalk into disaster, we face an existential dilemma: unprecedented harms arising from unchecked openness on one side, and the threat of overbearing surveillance on the other. Can we forge a narrow path between catastrophe and dystopia?

     

    In this groundbreaking book from the ultimate AI insider, Suleyman establishes “the containment problem”-the task of maintaining control over powerful
    technologies-as the essential challenge of our age.

    A Humans Guide to Machine Intelligence: How Algorithms Are Shaping Our Lives and How We Can Stay in Control

    Rs. 1,990.00
    or 3 X Rs.663.33 with

    Kartik Hosanagar

     

    A Wharton professor and tech entrepreneur examines how algorithms and artificial intelligence are starting to run every aspect of our lives, and how we can shape the way they impact us Through the technology embedded in almost every major tech platform and every web-enabled device, algorithms and the artificial intelligence that underlies them make a staggering number of everyday decisions for us, from what products we buy, to where we decide to eat, to how we consume our news, to whom we date, and how we find a job.  We’ve even delegated life-and-death decisions to algorithms–decisions once made by doctors, pilots, and judges.

     

    In his new book, Kartik Hosanagar surveys the brave new world of algorithmic decision-making and reveals the potentially dangerous biases they can give rise to as they increasingly run our lives. He makes the compelling case that we need to arm ourselves with a better, deeper, more nuanced understanding of the phenomenon of algorithmic thinking. And he gives us a route in, pointing out that algorithms often think a lot like their creators–that is, like you and me.

     

    Hosanagar draws on his experiences designing algorithms professionally–as well as on history, computer science, and psychology–to explore how algorithms work and why they occasionally go rogue, what drives our trust in them, and the many ramifications of algorithmic decision-making. He examines episodes like Microsoft’s chatbot Tay, which was designed to converse on social media like a teenage girl, but instead turned sexist and racist; the fatal accidents of self-driving cars; and even our own common, and often frustrating, experiences on services like Netflix and Amazon.

     

     A Human’s Guide to Machine Intelligence is an entertaining and provocative look at one of the most important developments of our time and a practical user’s guide to this first wave of practical artificial intelligence.

    Now You’re Talking: Human Conversation from the Neanderthals to Artificial Intelligence

    Rs. 2,690.00
    or 3 X Rs.896.67 with

    Trevor Cox

     

    “The spectrum of sounds humans emit are not only the lifeblood of conversation—they are central to our sense of who we are and where we come from. In his book Now You’re Talking, acoustic engineer and BBC radio presenter Trevor Cox zooms in on the basic mechanics of our vocal abilities, broadly surveys the ways our speaking voices define and reflect identity, and asks what it means when this most human quality can be replicated by computers.” —Psychology Today

     

    “A lucid look at the science behind human communication . . . The greatest takeaway from the book is the welcome thought that our best moments as human communicators are in ordinary conversations, ‘quotidian activity that allows knowledge about how to survive and thrive to be passed between us.’ There’s lots to ponder in Cox’s geekily entertaining exploration of how we acquire our voices and understand those of others.” —Kirkus Reviews

     

    “A lively, intelligent and persuasive history of speech.” —Laura Freeman, The Times

     

    “Illuminating . . . Cox knows how to make his subject sing.” —Sebastian Shakespeare, Daily Mail

     

    “Cox proves an affable guide, and his sharp history will give casual science buffs a lot to talk about.” —Publishers Weekly

    “Nick Bostrom’s excellent book “Superintelligence” is the best thing I’ve seen on this topic.  It is well worth a read.” —Sam Altman, President of Y Combinator and Co-Chairman of OpenAI

     

    “Worth reading. We need to be super careful with AI. Potentially more dangerous than nukes” —Elon Musk, Founder of SpaceX and Tesla

     

    “Nick Bostrom makes a persuasive case that the future impact of AI is perhaps the most important issue the human race has ever faced. Instead of passively drifting, we need to steer a course. Superintelligence charts the submerged rocks of the future with unprecedented detail. It marks the beginning of a new era.” –Stuart Russell, Professor of Computer Science, University of California, Berkley

     


    “This superb analysis by one of the world’s clearest thinkers tackles one of humanity’s greatest challenges: if future superhuman artificial intelligence becomes the biggest event in human history, then how can we ensure that it doesn’t become the last?” —Professor Max Tegmark, MIT

     


    “Valuable.
     The implications of introducing a second intelligent species onto Earth are far-reaching enough to deserve hard thinking” —The Economist

     

    “There is no doubting the force of [Bostrom’s] arguments. The problem is a research challenge worthy of the next generation’s best mathematical talent. Human civilisation is at stake.” —Clive Cookson, Financial Times

    Michio Kaku

     

    An international treasure and a man of infectious enthusiasm. ― The Times

     

    An exhilarating guide to the astonishing future of quantum computing, from the international bestselling physicist

     

    The runaway success of the microchip processor may be nearing its end, with profound implications for our economy, society, and way of life, even leaving Silicon Valley as a new Rust Belt, its technology obsolete. Step forward to the quantum computer, which harnesses the power and complexity of the atomic realm, and may be useful in solving humanity’s greatest challenges from climate change, to global starvation, to incurable diseases. Humanity’s next great technological achievement already promises to be every bit as revolutionary as the transistor and microchip once were.

    Its unprecedented gains in computing power and unique ability to simulate the physical universe herald advances that could change every aspect of our lives.

     

    Corporations and whole nations are betting on quantum computing, hoping to exploit its power to design more efficient vehicles, create life-saving new drugs, and streamline industries to revolutionize the economy. But this is only the beginning.

     

    Quantum computers could allow us to finally create nuclear fusion reactors that produce clean, renewable energy without radioactive waste or threats of meltdown. They could help us crack the biological processes that generate natural, cheap fertilizer and enable us to feed the world’s growing populations.

     

    And they could unravel the fiendishly difficult protein folding that lies at the heart of previously incurable diseases such as Alzheimer’s, motor neuron disease, and Parkinson’s, helping us to live longer, healthier lives. Told with Kaku’s signature clarity and enthusiasm, Quantum Supremacy is the story of this exciting frontier and the race to claim humanity’s future.

    Max Tegmark

     

    • THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER.
    •  DAILY TELEGRAPH AND THE TIMES BOOKS OF THE YEAR.
    • SELECTED AS ONE OF BARACK OBAMA’S FAVOURITE BOOKS OF 2018

     

    All of us – not only scientists, industrialists and generals-should ask ourselves what can we do now to improve the chances of reaping the benefits of future AI and avoiding the risks. This is the most important conversation of our time, and Tegmark’s thought-provoking book will help you join it — Prof. Stephen Hawking

     

    This is a compelling guide to the challenges and choices in our quest for a great future of life, intelligence and consciousness – on Earth and beyond. — Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX and Tesla Motors

     

    Max seeks to facilitate a much wider conversation about what kind of future we, as a species, would want to create. Though the topics he covers – AI, cosmology, values, even the nature of conscious experience – can be fairly challenging, he presents them in an unintimidating manner that invites the reader to form her own opinions. — Prof. Nick Bostrom, Founder of Oxford’s Future of Humanity Institute, author of Superintelligence

     

    Max’s new book is a deeply thoughtful guide to the most important conversation of our time, about how to create a benevolent future civilization as we merge our biological thinking with an even greater intelligence of our own creation. — Ray Kurzweil, Inventor, Author and Futurist, author of The Singularity is Near and How to Create a Mind

     

    Lucid and engaging […] Tegmark’s explanation of how electronic circuitry – or a human brain – could produce something as evanescent and immaterial as thought is both elegant and enlightening. — Frank Rose ― Wall Street Journal

     

    It should be among the most important items on our political agenda. Unfortunately, AI has so far hardly registered on our political radar … Max Tegmark’s Life 3.0 tries to rectify the situation. Written in an accessible and engaging style, and aimed at the general public, the book offers a political and philosophical map of the promises and perils of the AI revolution. Instead of pushing any one agenda or prediction, Tegmark seeks to cover as much ground as possible, reviewing a wide variety of scenarios concerning the impact of AI on the job market, warfare and political systems. Life 3.0 does a good job of clarifying basic terms and key debates, and in dispelling common myths. — Yuval Noah Harari ― The Guardian

     

    I was riveted by this book. The transformational consequences of AI may soon be upon us­-but will they be utopian or catastrophic? The jury is out, but this enlightening, lively and accessible book by a distinguished scientist helps us to assess the odds. — Prof. Martin Rees, Astronomer Royal, cosmology pioneer, author of Our Final Hour

    John Gribbin

     

    The quantum computer is no longer the stuff of science fiction. Pioneering physicists are on the brink of unlocking a new quantum universe which provides a better representation of reality than our everyday experiences and common sense ever could.

     

    The birth of quantum computers – which, like Schrödinger’s famous “dead and alive” cat, rely on entities like electrons, photons, or atoms existing in two states at the same time – is set to turn the computing world on its head. In his fascinating study of this cutting-edge technology, and featuring a new introduction, John Gribbin explores the nature of quantum reality, arguing for a universe of many parallel worlds where “everything is real.”

     

    Looking back to Alan Turing’s work on the Enigma machine and the first electronic computer, Gribbin explains how quantum theory developed to make quantum computers work in practice as well as in principle. He takes us beyond the arena of theoretical physics to explore their practical applications – from machines which learn through “intuition” and trial and error to unhackable laptops and smartphones.

     

    And he investigates the potential for this extraordinary science to create a world where communication occurs faster than light and teleportation is possible. This is an exciting insider’s look at the new frontier of computer science and its revolutionary implications.
