Life 3.0 : being human in the age of artificial intelligence / by Tegmark, Max.;
Includes bibliographical references and index.AI is the future of science, technology, and business - and there is no person better qualified or situated to explore that future than Max Tegmark. What has AI brought us? Where will it lead us? The story of AI is the story of intelligence - of life processes as they evolve from bacteria (1.0) to humans (2.0), where life processes define their own software, to technology (3.0), where life processes design both their hardware and software. It raises questions that we all need to address: What jobs should be automated? How should our legal systems handle autonomous systems? How likely is the emergence of suprahuman intelligence? These are the issues at the heart of this book and its unique perspective, which seeks a ground apart from techno-skepticism and digital utopia.

What I learnt : what my listeners say - and why we should take notice / by Vine, Jeremy,1965-;
Jeremy Vine has been presenting a BBC Radio 2 show since 2003 that attracts more than seven million listeners. In that time he calculates he has taken more than 25,000 calls on topical subjects - big issues and small ones: on life, love, lollipop ladies and poisonous plants. But what have the callers told him? In the age of Brexit and Donald Trump, is the world now being run by Radio 2 listeners? If you listen to Radio 4, Brexit was a shock. If you are a Radio 2 listener, it wouldn't have surprised you at all. In a book punctuated by vivid anecdotes and laugh-out-loud moments, Jeremy Vine explains what it's like to hit a button and hear - totally unvarnished and unspun - the voices of so-called ordinary people. And why they are not so ordinary after all.

Red famine : Stalin's war on Ukraine / by Applebaum, Anne,1964-;
Includes bibliographical references and index.Anne Applebaum's books have explained the history of Russia and Eastern Europe as compellingly as any other historian. Based on a mass of previous untranslated documents and hundreds of testimonies, Anne Applebaum's 'Red Famine' tells the story of the Bolshevik war on Ukraine, from the brief moment of Ukrainian independence in 1917 to Stalin's deliberately engineered famine in 1932-33. That genocide killed nearly five million people, destroyed the national aspirations of Ukraine for two generations and has real echoes in the politics of the present.
