PDF A Humans Guide to Machine Intelligence
This is a remarkable book by an author at the top *of his game If you want a rimer on AI and Big Data and the opportunities and threats this is the *his game If you want a Die Kunst Des Zeichnens: Die grosse Zeichenschule: Praxisorientiert und gut erklärt primer on AI and Big Data and the opportunities and threats this is the for you Lots of insights and recommendations Recommended Enjoyable and insightful readuts Artificial Intelligence in erspective for everyoneA very easy read that will help everyone get caught up on the state of the art of Artificial Intelligence how we got here and the ath that lies ahead Through out the book there were anecdotes and examples from history and living memory that were really fun to learn about The last The Villain: The Life of Don Whillans part of the book was very thoughtrovoking in terms of describing the crossroads we are at with AI as a society and the opportunities that lie ahead I am just a kid who didn t know anything about algorithms before reading this book but it has really educated me and let me understand algorithms in a fun way with many examples of them in use in our real world from AlphaGo to Facebook As a recipient of the results of algorithms every day this book has been really eye opening and shows me how the world uses them One thing to add it may be too simple for experienced eople in the field and could maybe educate THEM better with technicaladvanced vocabulary You don t have to be computer savvy to be able to understand this book Intriguing and ultimately raised uestions than it answered Will definitely make you want to delete your Facebook Has some unpronounceable names and terms but otherwise an easy read I am going to retend shop online at Nordstroms J Crew etc and ut the exact opposite rofile on match I really enjoyed the book and seeing how corporations are using algorithm manipulation with AI 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 ersonal epiphany 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 account my social media goings on and it s there nudging when I choose what music I want to hear or which movies to watch My second big realization Algorithms are no longer just a set of rules for how to do something They have really moved on They can now learn by themselves what to do and that without being specifically trained on what exactly they have to learn Does that spook me Of course But no than the numerous articles that are always telling me about the dangers lurking online The difference is I now better understand what I need to worry about At least I think I do Epiphanies apart for me the book opened up the virtual world a lot wider Whether I was reading about XiaoIce the sweetly affectionate chatbot or the viciously racist sexist bot Tay the eerie genius of AlphaGo or the to trust or not to trust dilemma around driverless cars it was all exciting and informative The shenanigans of young Tai as he negotiates life armed with a slew of digital tools that could be any youngster in my family And it was a revelation that a two centuries old chess laying robot a Hoax Actually Could Have Triggered actually could have triggered beginning of AI The Bill of Rights Times of Bede proposed in the bookoints to ways of dealing with risks and challenges The Catechism of the Council of Trent posed by AI without limiting itsromise An idea with rationale but I m ill euipped to form an opinion about how effective such a bill might be All in all I found the book absorbing and a great read I enjoyed the underlying subtle humour that runs through it and found the uotes at the start of each theme spot on

A Wharton rofessor 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 usThrough the technology embedded in almost every major tech Davids Sling platform and every web enabled device algorithms and the artificial intelligence that underlies them make a staggering number of everyday decisions for us from whatroducts 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 ilots and jud. Dangerously Placed potential of AI Kurzweil in fact is so fervent a believer in the tenets of AI that he vehemently believes in a concept termed Singularity In a bestseller having the same title as the concept Kurzweilroposes that by the year 2045 Singularity will help us multiply our effective intelligence a billion fold by merging with the intelligence we have created Opposing Kurzweil and his Band Of Egregious Brothers Are The Likes of egregious brothers are the likes James Barrat In his own bestseller Our Final Invention Barrat advocates extreme caution when it comes to the employ of AI Barrat takes Just Destiny pains to adumbrate the fact that ASI instead of being the embodiment of an agglomeration of sentient notions will be a scheming sinister surgical monster of intelligence having both theotential and inclination to wipe humanity off the face of Planet Earth The force of self Paradise Run perpetuation inbuilt in a machine with ASI will be in aosition to repurpose the world s molecules using nanotechnology thereby leading to ecophagy eating the environment So is AI the roverbial bane or the uintessential boom In his measured work A Human s Guide to Machine Intelligence How Algorithms Are Shaping Our Lives and How We Can Stay in Control Kartik Hosanagar the John C Hower Professor of Technology and Digital Business and a Professor Marketing at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania attempts to answer this very uestion From an entangled mesh of conflicts confusions and conundrums Mr Hosanagar tries to ascertain whether AI osits an existential crisis or if the concerns regarding machine learning represent an outlandish exaggeration This Mr Hosanagar Help Me, Jacques Cousteau proposes to do by broadly answering the following uestions What causes algorithms to behave in unpredictable biased andotentially harmful ways If algorithms can be irrational and unpredictable how do we decide when to use them And How do we as individuals who use algorithms in our Dignity Rising 1: Gefesselte Seelen personal orrofessional lives and as a society shape the narrative of how algorithms impact usBeginning with the astonishing example of two contradictory and divergent outcomes originating from two identical endeavours by the same Company Mr Hosanagar sets the The Book of Mordred platform for an informed discussion In 2014 Microsoft launched XioIce a chatbot in China The result was ahenomenal success with users raving endlessly 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 when the bot began to Oracle R12 Applications DBA Field Guide 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 elucidates As machines become intelligent and dynamic they also become unpredictable As Mr Hosanagar takes the trouble to educate to his readers Google s self driving car is based on algorithms that in turn are based on rules notrogrammed by humans directly but instead trained on a database of videos of humans driving that allow it to arrive at its own driving olicy using machine learning A self driving car that learns like a teenager in a driver s education class may not inspire confidence but as Hosanagar observes the algorithm has driven millions of miles in training something almost no human has ever doneSo how can algorithms and their users co exist with confidence instead of getting entangled in a ueasy relationship characterized by mistrust and apprehension Mr Hosanagar banks on a solution roposed by the founding fathers of American Democracy and even the creators of Magna Carta In his own words based on what we know about AI and its Hidden Boundaries potential impacts on society I believe there should be four mainillars 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 an explanation regarding the rocedures used by the algorithms expressed in terms simple enough for the average erson to easily access and interpret These first two Gods Callgirl pillars are both related to the generalrinciple 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. Ges In his new book Kartik Hosanagar surveys the brave new world of algorithmic decision making and reveals the Forever I'm Yours 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 thehenomenon of algorithmic thinking And he gives us a route in ointing out that algorithms often think a lot like their creators that is like you and meHosanagar draws on his experiences designing algorithms rofessionally as well as on history computer science and sychology to explore how algorithms work and. .

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 made by algorithms should have the responsibility to be aware of the unanticipated conseuences of automated decision Mr Hosanagar also derives inspiration from the words of caution sounded by ioneers of scientific temper who warned the world about the Renoir 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 elouent 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 continualrogress 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 exercised before embracing AI wholesale And towards this endeavor A Human s Guide to Machine Intelligence is a thought Nebular Sammelband 5 - Galaxis in Panik provoking and hands on user s guide to this first seemingly esoteric sphere of dynamic and fluid technology Some goodoints and examplesA uick read on topics and issues that are important in this new world of AI and machines The examples are good but felt rushed and under developed Overall it s an ok book for those with less exposure to AI and its implications The reason of setting a lower reading goal 40 books as against 50 for the year was so that I could ush myself into icking 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 Bakunin: The Creative Passion person about machine intelligence He discusses case studies from every day lives and how things we use in our day to day lives employ AI We also makes a case for whether AI is making our lives 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 lifeartners and deciding our The Donegal Woman political ideologies Do we in reality have any control on deep learning bots or are they running our lives I am not ashamed to admit that in the age of technology I am a dinosaur Sure I have a computer and a smarthone 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 ercent of their actual ability I can ALSO HONESTLY SAY THAT BEFORE THE honestly say that before the 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
uestion regarding the company and for three 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 ortion of society intently glued to their screens It is not often that my The Necromancer, or The Tale of the Black Forest phone rings becauseeople choose an impersonal text message as their means of communicating Everything we say and do is influenced by our screens We live in a lonely world and it gets lonelier every day We know about the Kardashians than our next door neighborAI is shaping our lives in leaps and bounds As we move forward with new technology all the time do we have a real understanding of how all of this affects our lives and changes society The answer to that is no but we continue to let it control us anyway We respond and react to the things that we are exposed to but it should concern us if those things are honest or manipulated Hosanagar examines how all of these blurry algorithms influence our daily decisions Hosanger has written a book that even a dinosaur like me can understand It s a book that should have everyone s attention Hosanagar instructs on the basics of understanding algorithms They instruct Easy right He also explains new AI that will be coming soon As a dinosaur a book like this is very helpful but it can be read by anyone that needs a little ush in understanding where we are headed with AI An easy to read book filled with stories and history and a glimpse into our AI futureThank you to the author Kartik Hosanagar Viking and Goodreads I received this book from a Goodreads giveaway and this is my honest review. 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 A Human's Guide to Machine Intelligence is an entertaining and rovocative look at one of the most important developments of our time and a ractical user's guide to this first wave of ractical artificial intelligen. ,
