Product Description:
A leading artificial intelligence researcher lays out a new approach to AI that will enable us to coexist successfully with increasingly intelligent machines

In the popular imagination, superhuman artificial intelligence is an approaching tidal wave that threatens not just jobs and human relationships, but civilization itself. Conflict between humans and machines is seen as inevitable and its outcome all too predictable.

In this groundbreaking book, distinguished AI researcher Stuart Russell argues that this scenario can be avoided, but only if we rethink AI from the ground up. Russell begins by exploring the idea of intelligence in humans and in machines. He describes the near-term benefits we can expect, from intelligent personal assistants to vastly accelerated scientific research, and outlines the AI breakthroughs that still have to happen before we reach superhuman AI. He also spells out the ways humans are already finding to misuse AI, from lethal autonomous weapons to viral sabotage.

If the predicted breakthroughs occur and superhuman AI emerges, we will have created entities far more powerful than ourselves. How can we ensure they never, ever, have power over us? Russell suggests that we can rebuild AI on a new foundation, according to which machines are designed to be inherently uncertain about the human preferences they are required to satisfy. Such machines would be humble, altruistic, and committed to pursue our objectives, not theirs. This new foundation would allow us to create machines that are provably deferential and provably beneficial.

  • Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
Product Description:
Have you ever tried to learn more about some incredible thing, only to be frustrated by incomprehensible jargon?  Randall Munroe is here to help.  In Thing Explainer, he uses line drawings and only the thousand (or, rather, “ten hundred”) most common words to provide simple explanations for some of the most interesting stuff there is, including:

  • food-heating radio boxes (microwaves)
  • tall roads (bridges)
  • computer buildings (datacenters)
  • the shared space house (the International Space Station)
  • the other worlds around the sun (the solar system)
  • the big flat rocks we live on (tectonic plates)
  • the pieces everything is made of (the periodic table)
  • planes with turning wings (helicopters)
  • boxes that make clothes smell better (washers and dryers)
  • the bags of stuff inside you (cells)

How do these things work? Where do they come from? What would life be like without them? And what would happen if we opened them up, heated them up, cooled them down, pointed them in a different direction, or pressed this button? In Thing Explainer, Munroe gives us the answers to these questions and so many more. Funny, interesting, and always understandable, this book is for anyone—age 5 to 105—who has ever wondered how things work, and why.

Practical Software Architecture Solutions from the Legendary Robert C. Martin (“Uncle Bob”)

 

By applying universal rules of software architecture, you can dramatically improve developer productivity throughout the life of any software system. Now, building upon the success of his best-selling books Clean Code and The Clean Coder, legendary software craftsman Robert C. Martin (“Uncle Bob”) reveals those rules and helps you apply them.

 

Martin’s Clean Architecture doesn’t merely present options. Drawing on over a half-century of experience in software environments of every imaginable type, Martin tells you what choices to make and why they are critical to your success. As you’ve come to expect from Uncle Bob, this book is packed with direct, no-nonsense solutions for the real challenges you’ll face–the ones that will make or break your projects.

  • Learn what software architects need to achieve–and core disciplines and practices for achieving it
  • Master essential software design principles for addressing function, component separation, and data management
  • See how programming paradigms impose discipline by restricting what developers can do
  • Understand what’s critically important and what’s merely a “detail”
  • Implement optimal, high-level structures for web, database, thick-client, console, and embedded applications
  • Define appropriate boundaries and layers, and organize components and services
  • See why designs and architectures go wrong, and how to prevent (or fix) these failures

Clean Architecture is essential reading for every current or aspiring software architect, systems analyst, system designer, and software manager–and for every programmer who must execute someone else’s designs.

Product Description:

BEWARE OF COUNTERFEIT BOOKS. Readers report that Amazon's 3rd-party sellers are selling counterfeits; counterfeit pages have misprints, missing pages or pages in reverse order. Amazon is investigating the issue. For now, purchase genuine books with the Amazon.com logo: bit.ly/2B9xxBf

Brand new 3rd edition

Lewis C. Lin — the world's #1 expert on product management (PM) interviews — has updated Decode and Conquer in an all-new third edition. Decode and Conquer is your starting point on how to conquer the most difficult PM interview questions. Here's what to expect:

  • Frameworks for design and metrics questions including the famous CIRCLES Method™, AARM Method™, and DIGS Method™
  • Biggest mistakes PM candidates make at the interview and how to avoid them
  • Insider tips on just what interviewers are looking for and how to answer so they can't say NO to hiring you
  • Sample answers for important PM interview questions

Expanded Section on Metrics & Execution

The 3rd edition has an expanded section on metrics & execution questions. Empower yourself with the latest thinking, frameworks, and tips to cover this growing category of questions!

Questions and answers covered in the book

  • Design a new iPad app for Google Spreadsheet.
  • Brainstorm as many algorithms as possible for recommending Twitter followers.
  • You're the CEO of the Yellow Cab taxi service. How do you respond to Uber?
  • You're part of the Google Search web spam team. How would you detect duplicate websites?

Endorsed by Google recruiters. Praised by Business Insider.

Decode and Conquer, especially CIRCLES™, has been endorsed by recruiters and top publications such as Business Insider. Top product management executives, including those from Google, Amazon, and Microsoft, recommend Decode and Conquer to PM job seekers.

Here's what readers say

You've helped many people in more ways than you know. I wish to do that someday in my own way.

Just wanted to share my gratitude for your work! Bought Decode & Conquer and enjoying every page. :)

I am a Zimbabwean who has been living in China for the last 8 years. No direct PM experience but your 2-week PM guide has been incredibly useful. I have also been reading Decode and Conquer which has gotten me up to speed really fast. Brilliant book!

I have just about finished your book Decode and Conquer and have found it to be enlightening. I feel that I already have drastically reduced the amount of PM interviews that I would have failed with a deer in the headlights look on my face.

Lewis Lin is the best. Just heard back from Uber, it’s a yes!  I had interviewed there twice before over the years, but it wasn’t until I encountered Lewis, his materials, and this community that I was finally able to crack it.

Your books helped me when I first got the PM job at Amazon. They again helped me refresh, alongside my gained experience, when I moved to Google. That, as you know, is through an interview process that’s notoriously one of the hardest in the industry. The shared wisdom in the pages of the book (even when I sometimes disagreed with the methods and answers) was extremely helpful.

Product Description:
In this authoritative and eye-opening book, Max Tegmark describes and illuminates the recent, path-breaking advances in Artificial Intelligence and how it is poised to overtake human intelligence. How will AI affect crime, war, justice, jobs, society and our very sense of being human? The rise of AI has the potential to transform our future more than any other technology—and there’s nobody better qualified or situated to explore that future than Max Tegmark, an MIT professor who’s helped mainstream research on how to keep AI beneficial.
 
How can we grow our prosperity through automation without leaving people lacking income or purpose? What career advice should we give today’s kids? How can we make future AI systems more robust, so that they do what we want without crashing, malfunctioning or getting hacked? Should we fear an arms race in lethal autonomous weapons? Will machines eventually outsmart us at all tasks, replacing humans on the job market and perhaps altogether? Will AI help life flourish like never before or give us more power than we can handle?
 
What sort of future do you want? This book empowers you to join what may be the most important conversation of our time. It doesn’t shy away from the full range of viewpoints or from the most controversial issues—from superintelligence to meaning, consciousness and the ultimate physical limits on life in the cosmos.
