The Ridiculously Simple Guide to Apple Watch Series 5 - Scott La Counte Cover Art

The Ridiculously Simple Guide to Apple Watch Series 5

The Ridiculously Simple Guide to Apple Watch Series 5 A Practical Guide To Getting Started With the Next Generation of Apple Watch and WatchOS 6 by Scott La Counte

Unlock the power of Apple Watch! The Apple Watch has, of course, been around for years and seen several updates. It's the latest updates, however, that have truly made the newest watches standout. From always-on displays to GPS navigation, Apple Watch has become more than a companion gadget to the iPhone; it's become a stand-alone device that is hard to live without. In addition to all the great features Apple Watch has always had, Series 4 introduced a slimmer body (yet with a screen that is somehow bigger), has optional cellular for making phone calls and streaming music without your phone, and drop detection (so if you fall and can't get up, the fire department is dispatched to your location). Everything about it was designed to motivate you to be more active. Series 5 has taken it a step further by adding one of the most asked for features: an always-on display. Something, it should be noted, it does without sacrificing battery. As amazing as all the new features are, it's not quite as easy to use as an iPhone; the lack of buttons, the smaller screen, and general UI can make a frustrating initial experience. The point of this book is to help new Apple Watch users (and users updating to WatchOS 6 from an older device) get the most out of their investment. This book covers the following topics: What's new in WatchOS 6. What's the difference between all of the different watches? What the Apple Watch Series 5 can (and can't) do. WatchOS gestures. Using Apple Pay from your Apple Watch. Finding, installing, updating, and removing apps from your Apple Watch. Using different Apple Watch features (such as SOS, Breathe, compass). Using different Apple Watch apps (such as Calendar, Reminders, Music). Getting driving directions with the Apple Watch. Using Siri on the Apple Watch. Changing watch Faces. Sending / receiving messages, emails, and phone calls from your Apple Watch. Doing a workout with the Apple Watch Series 5. Watch accessories. And much more! Are you ready to start enjoying your new Apple Watch? Then let's get started!

The Book of Why - Judea Pearl & Dana Mackenzie Cover Art

The Book of Why

The Book of Why The New Science of Cause and Effect by Judea Pearl & Dana Mackenzie

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. Today, that taboo is dead. 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. 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. 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. It shows us the essence of human thought and key to artificial intelligence. Anyone who wants to understand either needs The Book of Why .


Apple Watch Series 5 - Cathy Young Cover Art

Apple Watch Series 5

Apple Watch Series 5 Beginner to Advanced A Complete Guide by Cathy Young

The visionary Apple Watch is, at last, poised to take on the world in the Apple Watch Series 5! Whether you are new to Apple products, an expert, or somewhere in the middle, this book is designed to make it easy to find what interests you. I want you to feel comfortable with all aspects of your watch in an environment that encourages you to learn painlessly at your own pace. My goal is to help you enjoy the wonder of discovering your Apple Watch. Along the way, I want to:  • Teach you how to use all the features of your Apple Watch. I say “all.” As far as I know, I found every darned one of them, but don’t sue me if I missed one. Note: Details about the Compass app were not available at the time of publication. • Demonstrate the cool and awe-inspiring features of the Apple Watch. These aren’t random tips and tricks. Rather, I have showcased them in a way that lets you find them while exploring a particular feature or topic.  • Help you find what you want, when you want it. The organized and detailed Table of Contents includes more than 200 topics. Skip around to your heart’s content. • Inspire you with over 100 third-party apps. A few of the categories include entertainment, productivity, sports, photography, and games. We’ll also cover integration platforms like IFTTT, which opens up the possibility of unlimited applications. • Focus on the engineering and Apple platforms behind the Apple Watch. The physical device includes the heart rate monitor, accelerometer, gyroscope, and Apple’s Force Touch technology. Behind the scenes, learn how Apple is partnering with businesses to extend their HealthKit, HomeKit, and GymKit platforms to enhance your experience for years to come. • List 30 Common Troubleshooting and Maintenance Suggestions. While you can use your Apple Watch with watchOS 6 and later without your iPhone nearby, the Apple iPhone is an integral part of your day-to-day experience. In case you are new to Apple’s smartphone and iOS mobile operating system, I’ve included several topics covering the iPhone setup, screens, and gestures. Those topic headings have an asterisk and special formatting, so you can quickly skip them if you aren’t interested.  As a final selling point, I make an intentional effort to avoid a few of my pet peeves – and those pertain to incomplete instructions. I frequently see directions such as “tap to go to settings,” but they leave novice users asking, “tap where?” In another example I read, the instructions mentioned a workout playlist and how to enable it – but assumed nothing went awry (and something ALWAYS goes awry). I intend to cover those bases for you. And if I do, by chance, make the mistake of omitting a critical detail anywhere in this book, know that I was probably distracted by my Apple Watch telling me to get moving or to breathe. I apologize ahead of time; it wasn’t intentional.  Are you ready for the Apple Watch experience? Let’s get started.

You Look Like a Thing and I Love You - Janelle Shane Cover Art

You Look Like a Thing and I Love You

You Look Like a Thing and I Love You How Artificial Intelligence Works and Why It's Making the World a Weirder Place by Janelle Shane

AS HEARD ON NPR'S "SCIENCE FRIDAY" Discover the book that Malcolm Gladwell, Susan Cain, Daniel Pink, and Adam Grant want you to read this year, an "accessible, informative, and hilarious" introduction to the weird and wonderful world of artificial intelligence (Ryan North). "You look like a thing and I love you" is one of the best pickup lines ever... according to an artificial intelligence trained by scientist Janelle Shane, creator of the popular blog AI Weirdness . She creates silly AIs that learn how to name paint colors, create the best recipes, and even flirt (badly) with humans--all to understand the technology that governs so much of our daily lives. We rely on AI every day for recommendations, for translations, and to put cat ears on our selfie videos. We also trust AI with matters of life and death, on the road and in our hospitals. But how smart is AI really ... and how does it solve problems, understand humans, and even drive self-driving cars? Shane delivers the answers to every AI question you've ever asked, and some you definitely haven't. Like, how can a computer design the perfect sandwich? What does robot-generated Harry Potter fan-fiction look like? And is the world's best Halloween costume really "Vampire Hog Bride"? In this smart, often hilarious introduction to the most interesting science of our time, Shane shows how these programs learn, fail, and adapt--and how they reflect the best and worst of humanity. You Look Like a Thing and I Love You is the perfect book for anyone curious about what the robots in our lives are thinking. "I can't think of a better way to learn about artificial intelligence, and I've never had so much fun along the way." - Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Originals

The Ethical Algorithm - Michael Kearns & Aaron Roth Cover Art

The Ethical Algorithm

The Ethical Algorithm The Science of Socially Aware Algorithm Design by Michael Kearns & Aaron Roth

Over the course of a generation, algorithms have gone from mathematical abstractions to powerful mediators of daily life. Algorithms have made our lives more efficient, more entertaining, and, sometimes, better informed. At the same time, complex algorithms are increasingly violating the basic rights of individual citizens. Allegedly anonymized datasets routinely leak our most sensitive personal information; statistical models for everything from mortgages to college admissions reflect racial and gender bias. Meanwhile, users manipulate algorithms to "game" search engines, spam filters, online reviewing services, and navigation apps. Understanding and improving the science behind the algorithms that run our lives is rapidly becoming one of the most pressing issues of this century. Traditional fixes, such as laws, regulations and watchdog groups, have proven woefully inadequate. Reporting from the cutting edge of scientific research, The Ethical Algorithm offers a new approach: a set of principled solutions based on the emerging and exciting science of socially aware algorithm design. Michael Kearns and Aaron Roth explain how we can better embed human principles into machine code - without halting the advance of data-driven scientific exploration. Weaving together innovative research with stories of citizens, scientists, and activists on the front lines, The Ethical Algorithm offers a compelling vision for a future, one in which we can better protect humans from the unintended impacts of algorithms while continuing to inspire wondrous advances in technology.


Hacking - Jeremy Li Cover Art


Hacking by Jeremy Li

Hacking The Ultimate Beginners to Experts Guide to Computer Hacking, Penetration Testing and Basic Security Coding In this book, entitled “Hacking” we discuss how hacking affects us. Hacking is mostly know for its disadvantages but it does have advantages too.  Hacker and malicious activity has in the past few years been on the rise and this is specifically in the last one year. The attacks and threats have been on the rise and the impact to the online world is far-reaching. Attacks have been a source of concern to ordinary internet users and a problem too to corporate entities. Some of the threats will take the form of the conventional software like the viruses and malware among scripts which are aimed at exploiting flaws and achieving various malicious ends. This book describes the various forms of hacking that are quite common with the current technology. These forms may be implemented in house by people who understand the current system or by outsiders who may just want to explore the vulnerabilities in the system, or have some malicious intension. This book also describes the different types of hackers, and why some hackers play an important role to ensure whatever we do is safe. Hacking has directly impacted on the cost of doing business. Many businesses are spending way higher amounts of money on online security.  In the light of the latter, hacking has its advantages to the world of technology and is thus becoming a popular career choice. Sadly, the image of a hacker is greatly exaggerated and many look to it as a glamorous career choice that gives them power over the world: the reality is far from it.  Take time and read this book to learn more about hacking.

The Hundred-Page Machine Learning Book - Andriy Burkov Cover Art

The Hundred-Page Machine Learning Book

The Hundred-Page Machine Learning Book by Andriy Burkov

Peter Norvig , Research Director at Google, co-author of  AIMA , the most popular AI textbook in the world:  "Burkov has undertaken a very useful but impossibly hard task in reducing all of machine learning to 100 pages. He succeeds well in choosing the topics — both theory and practice — that will be useful to practitioners, and for the reader who understands that this is the first 100 (or actually 150) pages you will read, not the last, provides a solid introduction to the field." Aurélien Géron , Senior AI Engineer, author of the bestseller  Hands-On Machine Learning with Scikit-Learn and TensorFlow :  "The breadth of topics the book covers is amazing for just 100 pages (plus few bonus pages!). Burkov doesn't hesitate to go into the math equations: that's one thing that short books usually drop. I really liked how the author explains the core concepts in just a few words. The book can be very useful for newcomers in the field, as well as for old-timers who can gain from such a broad view of the field." Karolis Urbonas , Head of Data Science at  Amazon :  "A great introduction to machine learning from a world-class practitioner."   Chao Han , VP, Head of R&D at  Lucidworks :  "I wish such a book existed when I was a statistics graduate student trying to learn about machine learning." Sujeet Varakhedi , Head of Engineering at  eBay :  "Andriy's book does a fantastic job of cutting the noise and hitting the tracks and full speed from the first page.'' Deepak Agarwal , VP of Artificial Intelligence at  LinkedIn :  "A wonderful book for engineers who want to incorporate ML in their day-to-day work without necessarily spending an enormous amount of time.'' Gareth James , Professor of Data Sciences and Operations, co-author of the bestseller  An Introduction to Statistical Learning, with Applications in R :  "This is a compact “how to do data science” manual and I predict it will become a go-to resource for academics and practitioners alike. At 100 pages (or a little more), the book is short enough to read in a single sitting. Yet, despite its length, it covers all the major machine learning approaches, ranging from classical linear and logistic regression, through to modern support vector machines, deep learning, boosting, and random forests. There is also no shortage of details on the various approaches and the interested reader can gain further information on any particular method via the innovative companion book wiki. The book does not assume any high level mathematical or statistical training or even programming experience, so should be accessible to almost anyone willing to invest the time to learn about these methods. It should certainly be required reading for anyone starting a PhD program in this area and will serve as a useful reference as they progress further. Finally, the book illustrates some of the algorithms using Python code, one of the most popular coding languages for machine learning. I would highly recommend “The Hundred-Page Machine Learning Book” for both the beginner looking to learn more about machine learning and the experienced practitioner seeking to extend their knowledge base." Everything you really need to know in Machine Learning in a hundred pages. This is the first of its kind  "read first, buy later"  book. You can find the book online, read it, and then come back to pay for it if you liked the book or found it useful for your work, business or studies.

LINUX: Beginner's Crash Course. Your Step-By-Step Guide To Learning The Linux Operating System And Command Line Easy & Fast! by Jeremy Li

LINUX: Beginner's Crash Course Your Step-By-Step Guide To Learning The Linux Operating System And Command Line Easy & Fast! Linux is the ruler of data centers. Ever since Linux burst on the operating system scene in the mid -90s, it has seen a steady increase in popularity. Though desktop users never really warmed up to it, its phenomenal success in the server market is the stuff of fairytales. Linus Torvalds could have never predicted that his brainchild would grow so big! There are many numbers of Linux flavors to choose from. Debian, Red Hat, Ubuntu, CenTOS Fedora, SUSE, these are all very popular with large organizations as well as web-hosting services. Open source has come of age and has become all pervasive. More and more organizations are choosing the Linux route because of the robust technology and also because licensing issues are minimum. From a security point of view, Linux is a better OS to use on a critical server, because it lets users fine tune how precisely it is set up. Unlike a Windows environment, which is riddled with big security holes by default, Linux provides a much more secure and hardened OS. With cloud-based infrastructure gaining ground everywhere, Linux dominance is here to stay. Any IT administrator worth his salt needs to have solid Linux skills to survive and grow today.

On Intelligence - Jeff Hawkins & Sandra Blakeslee Cover Art

On Intelligence

On Intelligence How a New Understanding of the Brain Will Lead to the Creation of Truly Intelligent Machines by Jeff Hawkins & Sandra Blakeslee

From the inventor of the PalmPilot comes a new and compelling theory of intelligence, brain function, and the future of intelligent machines Jeff Hawkins, the man who created the PalmPilot, Treo smart phone, and other handheld devices, has reshaped our relationship to computers. Now he stands ready to revolutionize both neuroscience and computing in one stroke, with a new understanding of intelligence itself. Hawkins develops a powerful theory of how the human brain works, explaining why computers are not intelligent and how, based on this new theory, we can finally build intelligent machines. The brain is not a computer, but a memory system that stores experiences in a way that reflects the true structure of the world, remembering sequences of events and their nested relationships and making predictions based on those memories. It is this memory-prediction system that forms the basis of intelligence, perception, creativity, and even consciousness. In an engaging style that will captivate audiences from the merely curious to the professional scientist, Hawkins shows how a clear understanding of how the brain works will make it possible for us to build intelligent machines, in silicon, that will exceed our human ability in surprising ways. Written with acclaimed science writer Sandra Blakeslee, On Intelligence promises to completely transfigure the possibilities of the technology age. It is a landmark book in its scope and clarity.

The Design of Design

The Design of Design Essays from a Computer Scientist by Frederick P. Brooks Jr.

This is the eBook version of the printed book. If the print book includes a CD-ROM, this content is not included within the eBook version. Making Sense of Design Effective design is at the heart of everything from software development to engineering to architecture. But what do we really know about the design process? What leads to effective, elegant designs? The Design of Design addresses these questions. These new essays by Fred Brooks contain extraordinary insights for designers in every discipline. Brooks pinpoints constants inherent in all design projects and uncovers processes and patterns likely to lead to excellence. Drawing on conversations with dozens of exceptional designers, as well as his own experiences in several design domains, Brooks observes that bold design decisions lead to better outcomes. The author tracks the evolution of the design process, treats collaborative and distributed design, and illuminates what makes a truly great designer. He examines the nuts and bolts of design processes, including budget constraints of many kinds, aesthetics, design empiricism, and tools, and grounds this discussion in his own real-world examples–case studies ranging from home costruction to IBM’s Operating System/360. Throughout, Brooks reveals keys to success that every designer, design project manager, and design researcher should know.
