    In 1956, when John McCarthy held the first academic session on the particular topic, the term artificial intelligence was introduced and made open to the audience as a technological innovation for an enterprise-level transformation. But the path to understanding whether machines can really think in a human way started long before that. Artificial Intelligence or AI can be defined as a machine, robot, or a product and service strategy to determine how people can think and act logically in a given situation. AI is a study of how human brain thinks, learns, decides, and works, when trying to resolve ensuing problems. 
    And eventually, the study of AI has created intelligent software systems. Artificial intelligence carries a goal in mind to improve processes related to human knowledge, such as learning, reasoning and above all, problem-solving. 
    It is a widely accepted and age-old proven truth that the very word viz., intelligence is intangible by nature. It comprises of learning, reasoning, perceiving, problem-solving and of course, assimilates the element of linguistic intelligence. Similarly, the functional realm of artificial intelligence revolves around reasoning, knowledge representation, learning, planning, realizing, processing of natural language and the freedom to move and manipulate objects. The general intelligence sector has long-term intentions.

    The Deep Learning Revolution

    How deep learning — from Google Translate to driverless cars to personal cognitive assistants — is changing our lives and transforming every sector of the economy.The deep-learning revolution has brought us driverless cars, the greatly improved Google Translate, fluent conversations with Siri and Alexa, and enormous profits from automated trading on the New York Stock Exchange. Deep-learning networks can play poker better than professional poker players and defeat a world champion at Go. In this book, Terry Sejnowski explains how deep learning went from being an arcane academic field to a disruptive technology in the information economy.Sejnowski played an important role in the founding of deep learning, as one of a small group of researchers in the 1980s who challenged the prevailing logic-and-symbol based version of AI. The new version of AI Sejnowski and others developed, which became deep learning, is fueled instead by data. Deep networks learn from data in the same way that babies experience the world, starting with fresh eyes and gradually acquiring the skills needed to navigate novel environments. It took nature many millions of years to evolve human intelligence; AI is on a trajectory measured in decades. Sejnowski prepares us for a deep learning future.

    This book answers one of biggest unanswered questions asked by visitors to the Somme; where did my ancestor fight? The combination of First World War battle accounts and annotated trench maps throughout this book, explains exactly what happened and where, and indexed orders of battle give the reader a quick reference to locate individual units.But the book goes further than this as carefully chosen viewpoints, which are practical for anyone exploring in a car, have been suggested. They give the visitor different perspectives of the ground where their ancestors fought and died; and in many cases are buried in an unmarked grave.There is useful information on the structure of the British Army and the weapons, equipment and uniforms the men used. Information on the different methods of attacks used, the development of tactics and life in the trenches is also included. As well as this, there is a guide to the key cemeteries, memorials and museums the visitor should consider seeing to complete a visit.This book will help the casual visitor walk in their ancestors footsteps across the Somme battlefield. It will also guide the regular visitor across different areas of the battlefield, away from the popular points, and help all visitors accomplish the rewarding experience of connecting the battles of the past with the terrain of today.

    "What I find so rare and immediate in this journal is the self-grown quality of the knowledge gained from the presented experience. How many of us live with this degree of attention to the events of our experience..." - Reed Bye, Forward 
    This book is a series of short vignettes of a life lived in a way few human beings will ever know: in a tiny cabin, with no running water or wired electricity, at 10,000 feet altitude in the Rocky Mountains. The kicker: this was a year-round life, over 10 years. Thoreau spent two years at Walden Pond, Robert Louis Stevenson only two weeks on his "epic" journey through France. Jane's endurance and test of time brings even more depth and scope to her story. Nederland, Colorado locals still talk about seeing her snowshoe into town for supplies, speculating on her sanity. Hearing the author read this book helps one anchor that sanity, and how her personal, social experiment grew into a bonding of nature and woman that resounds well beyond a simple memoir.
