    Last Minute Rooms in Bethlehem (Hardback)

    Dale Shaw

    (2) Hand-picked favourites
    Have you ever wondered what kind of questions history's greatest figures would type into search engines if they'd existed during their time?

    This lively and hilarious book looks at the kind of things Charles Dickens would research while writing his latest novel ('things urchins say'), how Henry VIII would look up relationship advice ('breaking bad news to women from Cleeves') and Karl Marx would build up his knowledge ('cheating at Monopoly').

    With some naughty humour and strong language, this is a great gift book for any history buff and will inspire you to ponder what other questions historical figures would ask... You can't fail to laugh out loud.

    James Lovelock

    Creator of the Gaia hypothesis James Lovelock argues that after 300 years, anthropocene - the age in which humans acquired planetary-scale technologies - is now coming to an end in Novacene: The Coming Age of Hyperintelligence.

    He passionately believes that new beings will emerge from existing artificial intelligence systems. They will think 10,000 times faster than we do and they will regard us as we now regard plants - as desperately slow acting and thinking creatures.

    But this will not be the cruel, violent machine takeover of the planet imagined by sci-fi writers and film-makers. These hyper-intelligent beings will be as dependent on the health of the planet as we are...

    The AI Does Not Hate You (Hardback)

    Tom Chivers

    'Beautifully written, and with wonderful humour, this is a thrilling adventure story of our own future' Lewis Dartnell, author of The Knowledge and Origins 'The AI does not hate you, nor does it love you, but you are made of atoms which it can use for something else' This is a book about AI and AI risk. But it's also more importantly about a community of people who are trying to think rationally about intelligence, and the places that these thoughts are taking them, and what insight they can and can't give us about the future of the human race over the next few years. It explains why these people are worried, why they might be right, and why they might be wrong. It is a book about the cutting edge of our thinking on intelligence and rationality right now by the people who stay up all night worrying about it. Along the way, we discover why we probably don't need to worry about a future AI resurrecting a perfect copy of our minds and torturing us for not inventing it sooner, but we perhaps should be concerned about paperclips destroying life as we know it; how Mickey Mouse can teach us an important lesson about how to program AI; and how a more rational approach to life could be what saves us all.

    Hey! Listen! (Paperback)

    Steve McNeil

    A hilarious history of the golden period of computer games from the creator of Dara O'Briain's Go 8 Bit. It is fair to say Steve McNeil likes video games. He took a Nintendo Wii with him on his honeymoon (obviously), and spent so much time playing smartphone games in bed in the dark that he got eye strain and had to wear an eye patch. The locals nicknamed him 'the pale pirate'. Steve's obsession with video games can be traced back to the golden period from the early 70s to the late 90s. In this book he will delve into these games - from the appallingly bad to the breathtakingly good. He will also take us through the nerdy geniuses who created them, their fierce rivalries and risks often leading to some of the most farcical moments in the history of entertainment. This is a story of obsession, full of tales of Space Invaders, Donkey Kong, Mario, Sonic, Wolfenstein 3D, Worms and many more. It will also answer important questions about the golden age. Questions like: Why did Namco feel they had to change the name of Puck-Man to Pac-Man because they were worried about graffiti, when Nintendo were more than happy to bring out Duck Hunt? Joysticks at the ready. Let's Play!

    Artificial Intelligence: A Very Short Introduction (Paperback)

    Margaret A. Boden (Research Pr

    The applications of Artificial Intelligence lie all around us; in our homes, schools and offices, in our cinemas, in art galleries and -- not least -- on the Internet. The results of Artificial Intelligence have been invaluable to biologists, psychologists, and linguists in helping to understand the processes of memory, learning, and language from a fresh angle. As a concept, Artificial Intelligence has fueled and sharpened the philosophical debates concerning the nature of the mind, intelligence, and the uniqueness of human beings. In this Very Short Introduction, Margaret A. Boden reviews the philosophical and technological challenges raised by Artificial Intelligence, considering whether programs could ever be really intelligent, creative, or even conscious, and shows how the pursuit of Artificial Intelligence has helped us to appreciate how human and animal minds are possible. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.
