  • AI Superpowers

    Dr. Kai-Fu Lee???one of the world???s most respected experts on AI and China???reveals that China has suddenly caught up to the US at an astonishingly rapid and unexpected pace. ??

    From the bestselling author of The Black Swan and one of the foremost philosophers of our time, Nassim Nicholas Taleb, a book on how some systems actually benefit from disorder.,In The Black Swan Taleb outlined a problem; in , he offers a definitive solution: how to gain from disorder and chaos while being protected from fragilities and adverse events. For what he calls the “antifragile” is one step beyond robust, as it benefits from adversity, uncertainty and stressors, just as human bones get stronger when subjected to stress and tension.,Taleb stands uncertainty on its head, making it desirable, and proposing that things be built in an antifragile manner. Extremely ambitious and multidisciplinary, , provides a blueprint for how to behave-and thrive-in a world we don’t understand and which is too uncertain for us to even try to understand. He who is not antifragile will perish. Why is the city state better than the nation state, why is debt bad for you, and why is almost everything modern bound to fail? The book covers innovation, health, biology, medicine, life decisions, politics, foreign policy, urban planning, war, personal finance, and economic systems. Throughout, the voice and recipes of the ancient wisdom from Phoenician, Roman, Greek, and Medieval sources are heard loud and clear.

  • Assembling Life

    In ,, David Deamer addresses questions that are the cutting edge of research on the origin of life. For instance, how did non-living organic compounds assemble into the first forms of primitive cellular life? What was the source of those compounds and the energy that produced the first nucleic acids? Did life begin in the ocean or in fresh water on terrestrial land masses? Could life have begun on Mars?,The book provides an overview of conditions on the early Earth four billion years ago and explains why fresh water hot springs are a plausible alternative to salty seawater as a site where life can begin. Deamer describes his studies of organic compounds that were likely to be available in the prebiotic environment and the volcanic conditions that can drive chemical evolution toward the origin of life. The book is not exclusively Earth-centric, but instead considers whether life could begin elsewhere in our solar system. Deamer does not propose how life , begin, because we can never know that with certainty. Instead, his goal is to understand how life , begin on any habitable planet, with Earth so far being the only known example.

As the defiant but sensitive young genius is creating his theory of relativity, a new conception of time, he imagines many possible worlds.

  • How Not to Be Wrong

    The ,of math???a math-world superstar unveils the hidden beauty and logic of the world and puts its power in our hands.,The math we learn in school can seem like a dull set of rules, laid down by the ancients and not to be questioned.
