Robot Rules - Regulating Artificial Intelligence (Paperback, 1st ed. 2019): Jacob Turner Robot Rules - Regulating Artificial Intelligence (Paperback, 1st ed. 2019)
Jacob Turner
R778 R484 Discovery Miles 4 840 Save R294 (38%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

This book explains why AI is unique, what legal and ethical problems it could cause, and how we can address them. It argues that AI is unlike any other previous technology, owing to its ability to take decisions independently and unpredictably. This gives rise to three issues: responsibility--who is liable if AI causes harm; rights--the disputed moral and pragmatic grounds for granting AI legal personality; and the ethics surrounding the decision-making of AI. The book suggests that in order to address these questions we need to develop new institutions and regulations on a cross-industry and international level. Incorporating clear explanations of complex topics, Robot Rules will appeal to a multi-disciplinary audience, from those with an interest in law, politics and philosophy, to computer programming, engineering and neuroscience.

Artificial Intelligence - A Philosophical Introduction (Paperback): Jack Copeland Artificial Intelligence - A Philosophical Introduction (Paperback)
Jack Copeland
R915 R852 Discovery Miles 8 520 Save R63 (7%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Presupposing no familiarity with the technical concepts of either philosophy or computing, this clear introduction reviews the progress made in AI since the inception of the field in 1956. Copeland goes on to analyze what those working in AI must achieve before they can claim to have built a thinking machine and appraises their prospects of succeeding.
There are clear introductions to connectionism and to the language of thought hypothesis which weave together material from philosophy, artificial intelligence and neuroscience. John Searle's attacks on AI and cognitive science are countered and close attention is given to foundational issues, including the nature of computation, Turing Machines, the Church-Turing Thesis and the difference between classical symbol processing and parallel distributed processing. The book also explores the possibility of machines having free will and consciousness and concludes with a discussion of in what sense the human brain may be a computer.

But what happens if we actually succeed? Creating superior intelligence would be the biggest event in human history. Unfortunately, according to the world's pre-eminent AI expert, it could also be the last. In this groundbreaking book on the biggest question facing humanity, Stuart Russell explains why he has come to consider his own discipline an existential threat to our species, and lays out how we can change course before it's too late. There is no one better placed to assess the promise and perils of the dominant technology of the future than Russell, who has spent decades at the forefront of AI research. Through brilliant analogies and crisp, lucid prose, he explains how AI actually works, how it has an enormous capacity to improve our lives - but why we must ensure that we never lose control of machines more powerful than we are. Here Russell shows how we can avert the worst threats by reshaping the foundations of AI to guarantee that machines pursue our objectives, not theirs. Profound, urgent and visionary, Human Compatible is the one book everyone needs to read to understand a future that is coming sooner than we think.

R3,868 Discovery Miles 38 680 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

This book addresses the key security challenges in the big data centric computing and network systems, and discusses how to tackle them using a mix of conventional and state-of-the-art techniques. The incentive for joining big data and advanced analytics is no longer in doubt for businesses and ordinary users alike. Technology giants like Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Facebook, Apple, and companies like Uber, Airbnb, NVIDIA, Expedia, and so forth are continuing to explore new ways to collect and analyze big data to provide their customers with interactive services and new experiences. With any discussion of big data, security is not, however, far behind. Large scale data breaches and privacy leaks at governmental and financial institutions, social platforms, power grids, and so forth, are on the rise that cost billions of dollars. The book explains how the security needs and implementations are inherently different at different stages of the big data centric system, namely at the point of big data sensing and collection, delivery over existing networks, and analytics at the data centers. Thus, the book sheds light on how conventional security provisioning techniques like authentication and encryption need to scale well with all the stages of the big data centric system to effectively combat security threats and vulnerabilities. The book also uncovers the state-of-the-art technologies like deep learning and blockchain which can dramatically change the security landscape in the big data era.

R3,508 R3,135 Discovery Miles 31 350 Save R373 (11%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

This book treats the formulation and finite elements for shells, and its subject is defined by the following topics:

  1. Computational mechanics of non-linear shells,
  2. Shell equations: Reissner kinematics, finite rotations, finite strains,
  3. Shell finite elements: 4-node, enhanced or mixed or mixed/enhanced,
  4. Drilling rotation: drilling Rotation Constraint or Allman shape functions,
  5. Normal strain: recovered or parameterized,
  6. Constitutive equations: incremental, plane stress or 3D.

A wide range of applications of shell elements implies that they should be versatile, i.e. account for finite rotations and strains, admit the incorporation of various constitutive laws and enable convenient linking with other elements. This is a serious challenge, which requires various aspects of the element's formulation to be very advanced.

The basic information on linear shell elements may be found in some textbooks on FEs, but this book contains several advanced topics related to non-linear shells, such as e.g. the parametrization of finite rotations, the methods of including the drilling rotation, various methods of treating the normal strain, and the enhanced as well as mixed and mixed/enhanced finite elements.

Some of these topics have been a subject of my research for years, and all the described methods have been implemented in my own elements, and tested. Therefore, I believe that my understanding of this complicated subject is correct and mature enough to be canned, and presented to others.
