This book meets the requirements of undergraduate and postgraduate students pursuing courses in mechanical, production, electrical, metallurgical and aeronautical engineering. This self-contained text strikes a fine balance between conceptual clarity and practice problems, and focuses both on conventional graphical methods and emerging analytical approach in the treatment of subject matter. In keeping with technological advancement, the text gives detailed discussion on relatively recent areas of research such as function generation, path generation and mechanism synthesis using coupler curve, and number synthesis of kinematic chains. The text is fortified with fairly large number of solved examples and practice problems to further enhance the understanding of the otherwise complex concepts. Besides engineering students, those preparing for competitive examinations such as GATE and Indian Engineering Services (IES) will also find this book ideal for reference. KEY FEATURES  Exhaustive treatment given to topics including gear drive and cam follower combination, analytical method of motion and conversion phenomenon.  Simplified explanation of complex subject matter.  Examples and exercises for clearer understanding of the concepts.

The human brain has some capabilities that the brains of other animals lack. It is to these distinctive capabilities that our species owes its dominant position. Other animals have stronger muscles or sharper claws, but we have cleverer brains. If machine brains one day come to surpass human brains in general intelligence, then this new superintelligence could become very powerful. As the fate of the gorillas now depends more on us humans than on the gorillas themselves, so the fate of our species then would come to depend on the actions of the machine superintelligence. But we have one advantage: we get to make the first move. Will it be possible to construct a seed AI or otherwise to engineer initial conditions so as to make an intelligence explosion survivable? How could one achieve a controlled detonation? To get closer to an answer to this question, we must make our way through a fascinating landscape of topics and considerations. Read the book and learn about oracles, genies, singletons; about boxing methods, tripwires, and mind crime; about humanity's cosmic endowment and differential technological development; indirect normativity, instrumental convergence, whole brain emulation and technology couplings; Malthusian economics and dystopian evolution; artificial intelligence, and biological cognitive enhancement, and collective intelligence. This profoundly ambitious and original book picks its way carefully through a vast tract of forbiddingly difficult intellectual terrain. Yet the writing is so lucid that it somehow makes it all seem easy. After an utterly engrossing journey that takes us to the frontiers of thinking about the human condition and the future of intelligent life, we find in Nick Bostrom's work nothing less than a reconceptualization of the essential task of our time.
This book provides a detailed study of technical drawing and machine design to acquaint students with the design, drafting, manufacture, assembly of machines and their components. The book explains the principles and methodology of converting three-dimensional engineering objects into orthographic views drawn on two-dimensional planes. It describes various types of sectional views which are adopted in machine drawing as well as simple machine components such as keys, cotters, threaded fasteners, pipe joints, welded joints, and riveted joints. The book also illustrates the principles of limits, fits and tolerances and discusses geometrical tolerances and surface textures with the help of worked-out examples. Besides, it describes assembly methods and drafting of power transmission units and various mechanical machine parts of machine tools, jigs and fixtures, engines, valves, etc. Finally, the text introduces computer aided drafting (CAD) to give students a good start on professional drawing procedure using computer. KEY FEATURES : Follows the International Standard Organization (ISO) code of practice for drawing. Includes a large number of dimensioned illustrations and worked-out examples to explain the design and drafting process of various machines and their components. Contains chapter-end exercises to help students develop their design and drawing skills. This book is designed for degree and diploma students of mechanical, production, automobile, industrial and chemical engineering. It is also useful for mechanical draftsmen and designers.
