Quantum Supremacy

Quantum Supremacy How the Quantum Computer Revolution Will Change Everything by Michio Kaku

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • An exhilarating tour of humanity's next great technological achievement—quantum computing—which may supercharge artificial intelligence, solve some of humanity's biggest problems, like global warming, world hunger, and incurable disease, and eventually illuminate the deepest mysteries of science, by the bestselling author of The God Equation . • “Expertly describes and rectifies common misconceptions about quantum computing." — Science "[Kaku's] lucid prose and thought process make abundant sense of this technological turning point.” — The New York Times Book Review The runaway success of the microchip processor may be reaching its end. Running up against the physical constraints of smaller and smaller sizes, traditional silicon chips are not likely to prove useful in solving humanity’s greatest challenges, from climate change, to global starvation, to incurable diseases. But the quantum computer, which harnesses the power and complexity of the atomic realm, already promises to be every bit as revolutionary as the transistor and microchip once were. Its unprecedented gains in computing power herald advancements that could change every aspect of our daily lives.  Automotive companies, medical researchers, and consulting firms 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 create 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 like Alzheimer’s, ALS, and Parkinson’s, helping us to live longer, healthier lives. There is not a single problem humanity faces that couldn’t be addressed by quantum computing. 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.

Sandworm - Andy Greenberg Cover Art


Sandworm A New Era of Cyberwar and the Hunt for the Kremlin's Most Dangerous Hackers by Andy Greenberg

"With the nuance of a reporter and the pace of a thriller writer, Andy Greenberg gives us a glimpse of the cyberwars of the future while at the same time placing his story in the long arc of Russian and Ukrainian history." — Anne Applebaum, bestselling author of Twilight of Democracy The true story of the most devastating act of cyberwarfare in history and the desperate hunt to identify and track the elite Russian agents behind it: "[A] chilling account of a Kremlin-led cyberattack, a new front in global conflict" ( Financial Times ). In 2014, the world witnessed the start of a mysterious series of cyberattacks. Targeting American utility companies, NATO, and electric grids in Eastern Europe, the strikes grew ever more brazen. They culminated in the summer of 2017, when the malware known as NotPetya was unleashed, penetrating, disrupting, and paralyzing some of the world's largest businesses—from drug manufacturers to software developers to shipping companies. At the attack's epicenter in Ukraine, ATMs froze. The railway and postal systems shut down. Hospitals went dark. NotPetya spread around the world, inflicting an unprecedented ten billion dollars in damage—the largest, most destructive cyberattack the world had ever seen. The hackers behind these attacks are quickly gaining a reputation as the most dangerous team of cyberwarriors in history: a group known as Sandworm. Working in the service of Russia's military intelligence agency, they represent a persistent, highly skilled force, one whose talents are matched by their willingness to launch broad, unrestrained attacks on the most critical infrastructure of their adversaries. They target government and private sector, military and civilians alike. A chilling, globe-spanning detective story, Sandworm considers the danger this force poses to our national security and stability. As the Kremlin's role in foreign government manipulation comes into greater focus, Sandworm exposes the realities not just of Russia's global digital offensive, but of an era where warfare ceases to be waged on the battlefield. It reveals how the lines between digital and physical conflict, between wartime and peacetime, have begun to blur—with world-shaking implications.

Genius Makers

Genius Makers
The Mavericks Who Brought AI to Google, Facebook, and the World
by Cade Metz

"This colorful page-turner puts artificial intelligence into a human perspective. Through the lives of Geoff Hinton and other major players, Metz explains this transformative technology and makes the quest thrilling." —Walter Isaacson, author of The Code Breaker Recipient of starred reviews in both Kirkus and Library Journal THE UNTOLD TECH STORY OF OUR TIME   What does it mean to be smart? To be human? What do we really want from life and the intelligence we have, or might create?   With deep and exclusive reporting, across hundreds of interviews, New York Times Silicon Valley journalist Cade Metz brings you into the rooms where these questions are being answered. Where an extraordinarily powerful new artificial intelligence has been built into our biggest companies, our social discourse, and our daily lives, with few of us even noticing.    Long dismissed as a technology of the distant future, artificial intelligence was a project consigned to the fringes of the scientific community. Then two researchers changed everything. One was a sixty-four-year-old computer science professor who didn’t drive and didn’t fly because he could no longer sit down—but still made his way across North America for the moment that would define a new age of technology. The other was a thirty-six-year-old neuroscientist and chess prodigy who laid claim to being the greatest game player of all time before vowing to build a machine that could do anything the human brain could do.   They took two very different paths to that lofty goal, and they disagreed on how quickly it would arrive. But both were soon drawn into the heart of the tech industry. Their ideas drove a new kind of arms race, spanning Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and OpenAI, a new lab founded by Silicon Valley kingpin Elon Musk. But some believed that China would beat them all to the finish line.   Genius Makers dramatically presents the fierce conflict among national interests, shareholder value, the pursuit of scientific knowledge, and the very human concerns about privacy, security, bias, and prejudice. Like a great Victorian novel, this world of eccentric, brilliant, often unimaginably yet suddenly wealthy characters draws you into the most profound moral questions we can ask. And like a great mystery, it presents the story and facts that lead to a core, vital question:   How far will we let it go?

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 .

The Human Use Of Human Beings - Norbert Wiener Cover Art

The Human Use Of Human Beings

The Human Use Of Human Beings Cybernetics And Society by Norbert Wiener

Only a few books stand as landmarks in social and scientific upheaval. Norbert Wiener's classic is one in that small company. Founder of the science of cybernetics—the study of the relationship between computers and the human nervous system—Wiener was widely misunderstood as one who advocated the automation of human life. As this book reveals, his vision was much more complex and interesting. He hoped that machines would release people from relentless and repetitive drudgery in order to achieve more creative pursuits. At the same time he realized the danger of dehumanizing and displacement. His book examines the implications of cybernetics for education, law, language, science, technology, as he anticipates the enormous impact—in effect, a third industrial revolution—that the computer has had on our lives.

Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence A Guide for Thinking Humans by Melanie Mitchell

Melanie Mitchell separates science fact from science fiction in this sweeping examination of the current state of AI and how it is remaking our world No recent scientific enterprise has proved as alluring, terrifying, and filled with extravagant promise and frustrating setbacks as artificial intelligence. The award-winning author Melanie Mitchell, a leading computer scientist, now reveals AI’s turbulent history and the recent spate of apparent successes, grand hopes, and emerging fears surrounding it. In Artificial Intelligence , Mitchell turns to the most urgent questions concerning AI today: How intelligent—really—are the best AI programs? How do they work? What can they actually do, and when do they fail? How humanlike do we expect them to become, and how soon do we need to worry about them surpassing us? Along the way, she introduces the dominant models of modern AI and machine learning, describing cutting-edge AI programs, their human inventors, and the historical lines of thought underpinning recent achievements. She meets with fellow experts such as Douglas Hofstadter, the cognitive scientist and Pulitzer Prize–winning author of the modern classic Gödel, Escher, Bach , who explains why he is “terrified” about the future of AI. She explores the profound disconnect between the hype and the actual achievements in AI, providing a clear sense of what the field has accomplished and how much further it has to go. Interweaving stories about the science of AI and the people behind it, Artificial Intelligence brims with clear-sighted, captivating, and accessible accounts of the most interesting and provocative modern work in the field, flavored with Mitchell’s humor and personal observations. This frank, lively book is an indispensable guide to understanding today’s AI, its quest for “human-level” intelligence, and its impact on the future for us all.

The Master Algorithm - Pedro Domingos Cover Art

The Master Algorithm

The Master Algorithm How the Quest for the Ultimate Learning Machine Will Remake Our World by Pedro Domingos

Recommended by Bill Gates A thought-provoking and wide-ranging exploration of machine learning and the race to build computer intelligences as flexible as our own  In the world's top research labs and universities, the race is on to invent the ultimate learning algorithm: one capable of discovering any knowledge from data, and doing anything we want, before we even ask. In The Master Algorithm , Pedro Domingos lifts the veil to give us a peek inside the learning machines that power Google, Amazon, and your smartphone. He assembles a blueprint for the future universal learner--the Master Algorithm--and discusses what it will mean for business, science, and society. If data-ism is today's philosophy, this book is its bible.


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.

A Beginners Guide to Using Mac OS X (10.10) Yosemite A Guide to Unplugging You Windows PC and Becoming a Mac User by Katie Morris & GadChick

Apple Maps.  Robert Downey Jr.  Detroit.  These are a few examples of great things that just needed some hard work and a fresh look to really explode.  After OS X Mavericks was met with indifference, many worried that future OS X updates would continue to be a steady stream of minor upgrades and tweaks.  Continuing the new naming convention of Californian locations, the new iteration will be dubbed ‘Yosemite’ after California’s beloved national park, with no relation to a certain Looney Tunes character.  With OS X Yosemite, Apple is showing the world that OS X is not doomed to incremental upgrades, and diligently went through everything “feature by feature, pixel by pixel” to create a totally new and improved makeover for an old friend.  If you’ve used any OS X version before, there’s no way you’ll feel totally lost as you forage through Yosemite but your computer will definitely look and feel like a brand new system.   There are many new changes both aesthetic and mechanical, and this guide will take you through it all whether you're an OS X spring chicken or a grizzled Mac veteran.  If this is your first Apple computer (congrats on making the jump by the way!), we will also detail how to switch everything over from your old PC, and show you the differences between Windows and Mac.  If you are ready to learn the ins and outs of OS X Yosemite, grab a fresh cup of coffee (decaf if it’s late) and let’s get to work.

Cult of the Dead Cow - Joseph Menn Cover Art

Cult of the Dead Cow

Cult of the Dead Cow How the Original Hacking Supergroup Might Just Save the World by Joseph Menn

The shocking untold story of the elite secret society of hackers fighting to protect our privacy, our freedom, and even democracy itself. Cult of the Dead Cow is the tale of the oldest, most respected, and most famous American hacking group of all time. Though until now it has remained mostly anonymous, its members invented the concept of hacktivism, released the top tool for testing password security, and created what was for years the best technique for controlling computers from afar, forcing giant companies to work harder to protect customers. They contributed to the development of Tor, the most important privacy tool on the net, and helped build cyberweapons that advanced US security without injuring anyone. With its origins in the earliest days of the Internet, the cDc is full of oddball characters -- activists, artists, even future politicians. Many of these hackers have become top executives and advisors walking the corridors of power in Washington and Silicon Valley. The most famous is former Texas Congressman and current presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke, whose time in the cDc set him up to found a tech business, launch an alternative publication in El Paso, and make long-shot bets on unconventional campaigns. Today, the group and its followers are battling electoral misinformation, making personal data safer, and battling to keep technology a force for good instead of for surveillance and oppression. Cult of the Dead Cow shows how governments, corporations, and criminals came to hold immense power over individuals and how we can fight back against them.

The Absolute Beginner's Guide to Binary, Hex, Bits, and Bytes! How to Master Your Computer's Love Language by Greg Perry

If you truly want to know more about computers, you owe it to yourself to learn your computer's love language! Perhaps no other topic is ignored in the computer world today than the computer's real and internal language - that is the language of bits and bytes. With visual programming systems and advanced languages putting huge buffers between users, programmers, and the computer itself, all understanding of what the computer is actually doing goes out the window (...or perhaps we should say out the Windows!). •The simplest way to learn about bits, bytes, and binary is right here! Click to get this book because nothing on the entire planet makes it easier! •You don't have to be a Vulcan math wizard to master binary numbers! Quite the opposite! If you can count to 1 starting at 0, you can easily learn everything there is to know about binary and hexadecimal numbers! •You can never truly master C++, C#, Java, or any of the modern C-based programming languages without knowing what happens "under the hood" inside your computer! •Want to be a programmer? Want to be a better programmer? Want to make more money by sky-rocketing your skill set above others who want to shortcut their skills? Perhaps you're just curious as to what this binary stuff ids all about? Click to get this book and see how simple bits, bytes, binary, and even a little something called hexadecimal can be! If you're a programmer or want to be one, nothing increases your understanding and skills more than knowing your computer's internals! Knowing what happens inside your machine is your number one key to being a better programmer who actually understands programming! •Did you know that your computer is not even physically capable of subtracting one number from another? All your computer can do is add! (But it does this really fast!) •Did you know that when a computer is said to have 4 gigabytes of memory, it does not actually have 4 gigabytes of memory? (It has more and you should know why!) •Did you know that your computer cannot even manipulate text? The only thing your computer can do is work with 1's and 0's! (It takes a lot of work to make people think computers handle text as easily as they seem to do!)

Swift Coding Challenges - Paul Hudson Cover Art

Swift Coding Challenges

Swift Coding Challenges Test your Swift. Challenge your friends. Prepare for coding interviews. by Paul Hudson

Swift Coding Challenges is an all-new book written from the ground up to put your Swift skills to the test. I've written a variety of coding challenges that start off simple but slowly get harder, and it's down to you to solve them. I outline each problem, provide you with sample input and output, add in some hints in case you hit problems, then provide a sample solution and explain how it works. Give your coding brain the exercise it deserves! Looking for a job? If you're brushing up your skills in the hope of nailing a job interview, Swift Coding Challenges is for you. Never again fear the dreaded whiteboard tests: Swift Coding Challenges will help walk you through some of the most common problems that get thrown at you during interviews, so you'll be able to practice solutions and ensure you're ready. The goal is to solve each challenge yourself, but I always provide hints if you need them, as well as complete solutions and explanations so you always learn something new. Perfect for coding clubs and book groups If you run a Swift meetup or book group, Swift Coding Challenges makes for ideal reading, encouraging discussion, team work, and solution engineering. The book is structured so that each problem is presented in isolation, so you can pick out particular challenges easily and work through them together. Learn with solutions Each challenge is problem presented to you as a simple requirement, just like you would get at a job interview. For example one of the easier ones is, “write a method that returns true if two strings contain the same characters in any order.”  You're then given some example input and output, so you can write test cases. In this example, you'd be given something like "the strings 'abc' and 'cba' should return true, but 'dog' and 'cat' should return false." And that's it: you need to write code to solve the challenge. If you get stuck, I provide hints that help point you in the right direction. Ideally you don't need these, but they can help if you struggle with particular problems. Finally, every challenge comes with a complete solution, complete with explanation of how it works so you can compare your code against mine. So if you beat the challenge you can check to make sure your code was optimal, but even if you didn't manage to finish you'll still be able to learn and do better next time. Test your skills Every challenge is graded from easy to hard, then grouped into chapters such as Algorithms, Files, Lists, Strings, and more. This means you can focus your efforts wherever you think you're weakest, then start at the beginning to find your skill level. The book comes with 64 challenges in total, including these: - Given two strings, write a function that returns true if all letters are unique. - Make a version of the min() method that returns the three smallest numbers in an array. - Write an implementation of quicksort for arrays. - Recreate the built-in map() method for collections. - Write a function that returns the frequency of a word in an input file. - Given a Tic-Tac-Toe board, write a function that returns true if either player has won the game. - Write a function that accepts a binary tree and returns true if it's balanced. - Given a string with no duplicate characters, write a function that returns an array containing all letter permutations. - Write a function that accepts an integer array and returns its median value. - Write a function that accepts a linked list that loops back to itself, and returns the item at the start of the loop. And that's just a sample – the full book is packed with challenges at all difficulty levels, complete with hints and solutions.  BONUS: You get 90 "Be the compiler" test questions that present you with source code and ask you to figure out what it does. Each answer comes with an explanation so you learn as you go, and the tests are split across three levels so there's something for everyone. Give your coding brain the exercise it deserves!
