The rousing story of the last gasp of human agency and how today’s best and brightest minds are endeavoring to put an end to it. It used to be that to diagnose an illness, interpret legal documents, analyze foreign policy, or write a newspaper article you needed a human being with specific skills - and maybe an advanced degree or two. These days, high-level tasks are increasingly being handled by algorithms that can do precise work not only with speed but also with nuance. These ´´bots´´ started with human programming and logic, but now their reach extends beyond what their creators ever expected. In this fascinating, frightening audiobook, Christopher Steiner tells the story of how algorithms took over - and shows why the ´´bot revolution´´ is about to spill into every aspect of our lives, often silently, without our knowledge. The May 2010 ´´Flash Crash´´ exposed Wall Street’s reliance on trading bots to the tune of a 998-point market drop and $1 trillion in vanished market value. But that was just the beginning. In Automate This, we meet bots that drive cars, pen haikus, and write music mistaken for Bach’s. They listen in on our customer service calls and figure out what Iran would do in the event of a nuclear standoff. There are algorithms that can pick out the most cohesive crew of astronauts for a space mission or identify the next Jeremy Lin. Some can even ingest statistics from baseball games and spit out pitch-perfect sports journalism indistinguishable from that produced by humans. The interaction of man and machine can make our lives easier. But what will the world look like when algorithms control our hospitals, our roads, our culture, and our national security? What happens to businesses when we automate judgment and eliminate human instinct? And what role will be left for doctors, lawyers, writers, truck drivers, and many others? Who knows - maybe there’s a bot learning to do your job right this minute. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Walter Dixon.

Automated machines are taking over our lives. They´re not the scary robots you see in movies, but more and more of today´s technology - from smart phones to airplanes - is automated. And some of the world´s biggest companies are racing to come up with a ´´master algorithm´´ - a formula that will let machines learn anything. This could lead to self-driving cars and even a cure for cancer. But do we want to give machines so much control? [Broadcast Date: September 23, 2016] 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jim Fleming.

Do you want to learn programming, but you are too intimidated by the complexity? At some point, every computer guy starts to have a feeling of making a computer program. However, most of them never make a move towards this feel because computer programming sounds scary. In fact, computer programming isn’t scary at all. All it takes is a correct selection of programming language to begin your journey as a computer programmer. Programming languages are made to make the human life better than before. These languages help in making programs which increase the overall productivity, communication, and efficiency of the work. Out of so many programming languages to choose from, python is one of the most loved programming languages among computer geeks. This is because python is one of those rare languages that is both simple and powerful. Python has everything that you may require to make a new program. If you will see someone writing a program in python, you will be really surprised to see how easy it is in python to find the solution for a problem. In simple words, python is an open source, a high-level programming language developed by Guido van Rossum in 1980s. This language is presently administered by Python Software Foundation. Python has proven its worth in all these years for both business and industrial use. Unlike other languages, it didn’t go obsolete and in fact, with time, the use of Python has increased. Python is broadly used in making web applications, GUIs (Graphic user interface), games, etc., and writing and reading the codes in python is as simple as reading regular English sentences. The program written in python is required to be processed before running as they are not written in machine readable language. Once you will learn the basics of python (as you are a beginner), you will find it really easy to move on towards the advanced features that python offers to programmers. 1. Language: English.
