You don t have to be computer savvy to be Able To Understand This Book And Ultimately Raised Uestions to understand this book Intriguing and raised uestions it answered Will definitely make you want to delete your Facebook Has some unpronounceable names and terms but otherwise an asy read This is a remarkable book by an author at the top of his game If you want a primer on AI and Big Data and the opportunities and threats this is the book for you Lots of insights and recommendations Recommended Some good points and Democratic Art: The New Deal's Influence on American Culture examplesA uick read on topics and issues that are important in this new world of AI and machines Thexamples are good but felt rushed and under developed Overall it s an ok book for those with less Obsession: An Erotic Tale exposure to AI and its implications I am going to pretend shop online at Nordstroms J Crewtc and put the Confederate Cities: The Urban South during the Civil War Era exact opposite profile on match I reallynjoyed the book and seeing how corporations are using algorithm manipulation with AI Enjoyable and insightful read puts Artificial Intelligence in perspective for Convents and the Body Politic in Late Renaissance Venice everyoneA veryasy read that will help Edicts of Asoka everyone get caught up on the state of the art of Artificial Intelligence how we got here and the path that lies ahead Through out the book there were anecdotes andxamples from history and living memory that were really fun to learn about The last part of the book was very thought provoking in terms of describing the crossroads we are at with AI as a society and the opportunities that lie ahead The reason of setting a lower reading goal 40 books as against 50 for the year was so that I could push myself into picking up authors and genres I have not tried before Artificial Intelligence has intrigued me for some time now and I had a lot of misconceptions around it So when faculty at our Uni decided to design an interdisciplinary course around it I had no choice but to read up so I could be of real help Kartik s book is an uncomplicated attempt to teach a lay person about machine intelligence He discusses case studies from Upgrade Soul every day lives and how things we use in our day to day livesmploy AI We also makes a case for whether AI is making our lives Ecstasies: Deciphering the Witches' Sabbath easier or actually directing our lives into making decisions we would otherwise not From harmless decisions like which netflix series to watch and which books to read to high stake decisions like selecting our life partners and deciding our political ideologies Do we in reality have any control on deep learning bots or are they running our lives A Human s Guide to Machine Intelligence How Algorithms Are Shaping Our Lives and How We Can Stay in ControlI finished reading A Human s Guide to Machine Intelligence by Kartik Hosanagar some months back but recently went back to it after talking to a friend about it Coming as I do from the unwired generation the book led me to my moment of personalpiphany Artificial Intelligence is not something that is going to happen in an Asimovisc future It s here already and in my life It hovers around my grocery orders my accoun I am just a kid who didn t know anything about algorithms before reading this book but it has really Elizabeth I: Translations, 1544-1589 educated me and let me understand algorithms in a fun way with manyxamples of them in use in our real world from AlphaGo to Facebook As a recipient of the results of algorithms Dolphin Confidential: Confessions of a Field Biologist every day this book has been reallyye opening and shows me how the world uses them One thing to add it may be too simple for xperienced people in the field and could maybe ducate THEM better with technicaladvanced vocabulary I am not ashamed to admit that in the age of technology I am a dinosaur Sure I have a computer and a smart phone but that does not mean I understand how to use them completely I have no doubt that my use of them only touches a small percent of their actual ability I can also honestly say that before the nd of 2018 I had already deleted my Facebook account Goodreads is my only social media outlet I had noticed for some time the Facebook algorithms marketing to me but I see it here also I happened to Google Jelly Belly one afternoon not to buy jelly beans but I had a uestion regarding the company and for three weeks I had Jelly Belly ads on my Goodreads homepage I see so much reliance on AI that it startles me Maps have become obsolete Phone books I fear the loss of books and newspapers There is a huge portion. A Wharton professor and tech ntrepreneur Imaginary Runner examines how algorithms and artificial intelligence are starting to runvery aspect of our lives and how we can shape the way they impact usThrough the technology From Cottage to Bungalow: Houses and the Working Class in Metropolitan Chicago, 1869-1929 embedded in almostvery major tech platform and Fresh Water every webnabled device algorithms and the artificial intelligence that underlies them make a staggering number of French Daguerreotypes everyday decisions for us from what products we buy to where we decide toat to how we consume our news to whom we date and how we find a job We've From Notes to Narrative: Writing Ethnographies That Everyone Can Read even delegated life and death decisions to algorithms decisions once made by doctors pilots and jud. Hms can be irrational and unpredictable how do we decide when to use them And How do we as individuals who use algorithms in our personal or professional lives and as a society shape the narrative of how algorithms impact usBeginning with the astonishingxample of two contradictory and divergent outcomes originating from two identical From the Enemy's Point of View: Humanity and Divinity in an Amazonian Society endeavours by the same Company Mr Hosanagar sets the platform for an informed discussion In 2014 Microsoft launched XioIce a chatbot in China The result was a phenomenal success with users ravingndlessly over their fabulous interactions with XioIce Bolstered by this result Microsoft launched Tay an artificial intelligence chatter bot via Twitter on march 23 2016 it caused subseuent controversy March 23 2016 it caused subseuent controversy the bot began to post inflammatory and offensive tweets through its Twitter account forcing Microsoft to shut down the service only 16 hours after its launch As Mr Hosanagar Doris Salcedo elucidates As machines become intelligent and dynamic they also become unpredictable As Mr Hosanagar takes the trouble toducate to his readers Google s self driving car is based on algorithms that in turn are based on rules not programmed by humans directly but instead trained on a database of videos of humans driving that allow it to arrive at its own driving policy using machine learning A self driving car that learns like a teenager to arrive at its own driving policy using machine learning A self driving car that Learns Like A Teenager like a teenager driver s ducation class may not inspire confidence but as Hosanagar observes the algorithm has driven millions of miles in training something almost no human has ver doneSo how can algorithms and their users co Gods Choice exist with confidence instead of gettingntangled in a ueasy relationship characterized by mistrust and apprehension Mr Hosanagar banks on a solution proposed by the founding fathers of American Democracy and Gustave Caillebotte: The Painter's Eye even the creators of Magna Carta In his own words based on what we know about AI and its potential impacts on society I believe there should be four main pillars of an algorithmic bill of rights including a set of responsibilities for users of decision making algorithms1 First those who use algorithms or who are impacted by decisions made by algorithms should have a right to a description of the data used to train them and details as to how that data was collected 2 Second those who use algorithms or who are impacted by decisions made by algorithms should have a right to anxplanation regarding the procedures used by the algorithms Grand Illusion: The Third Reich, the Paris Exposition, and the Cultural Seduction of France expressed in terms simplenough for the average person to asily access and interpret These first two pillars are both related to the general principle of transparency 3 Third those who use algorithms or who are impacted by decisions made by algorithms should have some level of control over the way those algorithms work that is there should always be a feedback loop between the user and the algorithm and 4 Fourth those who use algorithms or who are impacted by decisions made by algorithms should have the responsibility to be aware of the unanticipated conseuences of automated decision making Mr Hosanagar also derives inspiration from the words of caution sounded by pioneers of scientific temper who warned the world about the perils of their own invention Just days before his death Albert Einstein whose brainchild hastened the consummation of the Manhattan Project drafted the Russell Einstein Manifesto an louent call to scientists to act for the good of humanity Supported by other such notable scientists and intellectuals as Max Born Fr d ric Joliot Curie Linus Pauling and Bertrand Russell the manifesto statesThere lies before us if we choose continual progress in happiness knowledge and wisdom Shall we instead choose death because we cannot forget our uarrels We appeal as human beings to human beings Remember your humanity and forget the rest If you can do so the way opens to a new Paradise if you cannot there lies before you the risk of universal deathWhile Mr Hosanagar candidly acknowledges that abandoning AI would be akin to driving ourselves back to the Stone Age there is no dispute that great care and caution ought to be Great Plains: America's Lingering Wild exercised beforembracing AI wholesale And towards this Hard Bread (Phoenix Poets endeavor A Human s Guide to Machine Intelligence is a thought provoking and hands on user s guide to this first seeminglysoteric sphere of dynamic and fluid technology.

Ges 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 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 meHosanagar draws on his Forgetful of Their Sex experiences designing algorithms professionally as well as on history computer science and psychology toxplore how algorithms work and.
