Ein Beitrag aus der Dezemberausgabe der brand eins zum Schwerpunkt ´´Design´´.Zwei amerikanische Studenten entwickeln ein neues Verfahren, um bei der Internet-Recherche Treffer nach Relevanz zu gewichten. Sie nennen ihr Projekt Google. Das geschieht im Jahr 1998. Seitdem weiß die Welt, was eine Suchmaschine ist: Sie ist das Herz des Internets. Google war nur der Anfang. Überall ist man dabei, neue Suchmaschinen zu konstruieren. Das New Yorker Unternehmen Platinum Blue hat sich darauf spezialisiert, aus einer Liste von neuen Songs diejenigen herauszufiltern, die das Zeug zum Hit haben. Die britische Firma Epagogix bietet ein automatisches Verfahren, mit dem analysiert wird, welche Zutaten einen Kinofilm erfolgreich machen. Partnerschaftsvermittler wie E-Harmony bedienen sich automatischer Suchtechniken, um Beziehungen zu stiften, die lange halten. Ein Professor der Wirtschaftswissenschaften erfindet ein automatisches Verfahren, mit dem man unter verschiedenen Bordeaux-Weinen denjenigen mit dem besten Geschmack finden soll. Und so weiter. 1.

The gripping real story of the ordinary American man who found himself at the centre of a deadly terrorist organisation - and working for both MI5 and the FBI. A bored trucker from New York took a holiday to Ireland with his new girlfriend and brought down the IRA. Just a quick Google search reveals the level of interest across Britain, Ireland and the US into exactly how this ordinary blue collar worker found himself at the centre of an espionage ring. David Rupert, a complete outsider with no connection to Ireland, rose to the very top of the Real IRA, all while working for the FBI and British intelligence. But the story is really about just how a bored, frustrated New York trucking manager becomes one of Britain’s most valued spies, brings down the entire IRA structure and makes $10 million in the process. Along the way he finds himself in the most extraordinary and terrifying situations - is involved in major terrorist operations, sets up an Iraqi sting operation and is organising US arms shipments with a man being trained to kill the then British Prime Minister, Tony Blair. 1.

A veteran space journalist digs into the science and technology - past, present, and future - central to our explorations of Earth´s only satellite, the space destination most hotly pursued today. In this rich audiobook, veteran science journalist Leonard David explores the moon in all its facets, from ancient myth to future ´´Moon Village´´ plans. David offers inside information about how the United States, allies, and competitors, as well as key private corporations like Moon Express and Jeff Bezos´s Blue Origin, plan to reach, inhabit, and even harvest the moon in the decades to come. Spurred on by the Google Lunar XPRIZE - $30 million for the first to get to the moon and send images home - the 21st-century space race back to the moon has become more urgent, and more timely, than ever. Accounts of these new strategies are set against past efforts, including stories never before told about the Apollo missions and Cold War plans for military surveillance and missile launches from the moon. Timely and fascinating, this book sheds new light on our constant lunar companion, offering reasons to gaze up and see it in a different way than ever before. 1. Language: English.

AI Superpowers: China, Silicon Valley, and the ...

Here are two well-known facts:Artificial Intelligence is reshaping the world as we know it. The United States has long been, and remains, the global leader in AI. That first fact is correct. But in his provocative new book, Dr. Kai-Fu Lee - one of the world’s most respected experts on AI - reveals that China has suddenly caught up to the US at an astonishingly rapid pace. As the US-Sino competition begins to heat up, Lee envisions China and the US forming a powerful duopoly in AI, but one that is based on each nation’s unique and traditional cultural inclinations. Building upon his longstanding US-Sino technology career (working at Apple, Microsoft, and Google) and his much-heralded New York Times Op-Ed from June 2017, Dr. Lee predicts that Chinese and American AI will have a stunning impact on not just traditional blue-collar industries but will also have a devastating effect on white-collar professions. Is the concept of universal basic income the solution? In Dr. Lee’s opinion, probably not. In AI Superpowers, he outlines how millions of suddenly displaced workers must find new ways to make their lives meaningful, and how government policies will have to deal with the unprecedented inequality between the ´´haves´´ and the ´´have-nots.´´ Even worse, Lee says the transformation to AI is already happening all around us, whether we are aware of it or not.Dr. Lee - a native of China but educated in America - argues powerfully that these unprecedented developments will happen much sooner than we think. He cautions us about the truly dramatic upheaval that AI will unleash and how we need to start thinking now on how to address these profound changes that are coming to our world. 1.

Autonomy: The Quest to Build the Driverless Car...
9,95 € *

A deep dive into the race to develop and perfect the driverless car - an innovation that promises to be the most disruptive change to our way of life since the smartphone - by a veteran insider of the automotive and tech worlds.In Autonomy, former GM executive and current advisor to the Google self-driving car project Lawrence Burns offers a sweeping history of the race to make the driverless car a reality. In the past decade, Silicon Valley companies like Google, Tesla, and Uber have positioned themselves to revolutionize the way we move around by developing driverless vehicles while traditional auto companies like General Motors, Ford, and Daimler have been fighting back by partnering by with new tech start-ups. It’s not a question of whether the self-driving car will disrupt the automobile industry; it’s a question of when and how, and who will win the race.With the first driverless car likely to hit markets in less than five years, Burns also looks toward the future and explains how this new technology will impact our lives - from removing the hassles of driving, parking, and refueling our cars to eliminating 90 percent of road fatalities, drastically reducing our carbon footprint, and automating yet another segment of blue-collar industries, putting more workers out of their jobs.We are on the brink of a technological revolution that promises to fundamentally change how we interact with our world. A chronicle of the past, diagnosis of the present, and prediction of the future, Autonomy is the ultimate guide to understanding the driverless car and to navigating the revolution it sparks. 1.
