Yuval Noah Harari
New York Times Bestseller

A Summer Reading Pick for President Barack Obama, Bill Gates, and Mark Zuckerberg

From a renowned historian comes a groundbreaking narrative of humanity’s creation and evolution—a #1 international bestseller—that explores the ways in which biology and history have defined us and enhanced our understanding of what it means to be “human.”

One hundred thousand years ago, at least six different species of humans inhabited Earth. Yet today there is only one—homo sapiens. What happened to the others? And what may happen to us?

Most books about the history of humanity pursue either a historical or a biological approach, but Dr. Yuval Noah Harari breaks the mold with this highly original book that begins about 70,000 years ago with the appearance of modern cognition. From examining the role evolving humans have played in the global ecosystem to charting the rise of empires, Sapiens integrates history and science to reconsider accepted narratives, connect past developments with contemporary concerns, and examine specific events within the context of larger ideas.

Dr. Harari also compels us to look ahead, because over the last few decades humans have begun to bend laws of natural selection that have governed life for the past four billion years. We are acquiring the ability to design not only the world around us, but also ourselves. Where is this leading us, and what do we want to become?

Featuring 27 photographs, 6 maps, and 25 illustrations/diagrams, this provocative and insightful work is sure to spark debate and is essential reading for aficionados of Jared Diamond, James Gleick, Matt Ridley, Robert Wright, and Sharon Moalem.

This volume contains revised versions of selected papers presented dur ing the 23rd Annual Conference of the German Classification Society GfKl (Gesellschaft fiir Klassifikation). The conference took place at the Univer sity of Bielefeld (Germany) in March 1999 under the title "Classification and Information Processing at the Turn of the Millennium". Researchers and practitioners - interested in data analysis, classification, and information processing in the broad sense, including computer science, multimedia, WWW, knowledge discovery, and data mining as well as spe cial application areas such as (in alphabetical order) biology, finance, genome analysis, marketing, medicine, public health, and text analysis - had the op portunity to discuss recent developments and to establish cross-disciplinary cooperation in their fields of interest. Additionally, software and book pre sentations as well as several tutorial courses were organized. The scientific program of the conference included 18 plenary or semi plenary lectures and more than 100 presentations in special sections. The peer-reviewed papers are presented in 5 chapters as follows: • Data Analysis and Classification • Computer Science, Computational Statistics, and Data Mining • Management Science, Marketing, and Finance • Biology, Genome Analysis, and Medicine • Text Analysis and Information Retrieval As an unambiguous assignment of results to single chapters is sometimes difficult papers are grouped in a way that the editors found appropriate.

Otto Opitz feiert im Juni 1999 seinen sechzigsten Geburtstag. Aus diesem Anlaß haben sich Schüler, ihm nahestehende Kollegen und Freunde ent schlossen, die nachfolgende Festschrift zu erstellen. Daß sich dabei eine hohe Korrelation zwischen den wissenschaftlichen Interessensgebieten von Otto Opitz und den Themen der eingegangenen Beiträge gezeigt hat, ist nicht er staunlich und hat die Strukturierung dieses Bandes erleichtert. Ein Auszug seiner wissenschaftlichen Tätigkeiten findet sich am Ende des Bandes. Eines der wichtigsten Betätigungsfelder von Otto Opitz kann mit Daten analyse und Klassifikation umschrieben werden. Und so, wie sich diese For schungsrichtung aus der Statistik entwickelt hat, ist in jüngster Zeit eine Diskussion zu beobachten, die Data Mining als neues Forschungsgebiet zu etablieren sucht. Zu bevorzugten Anwendungsbereichen von Aktivitäten aus den zuvor genannten Gebieten haben für Otto Opitz stets Marktforschung und Marketing gehört, und nicht nur seine Beschäftigung mit Methoden der Bankmarktforschung belegt, daß auch die mit Kapital und Risiko umschreib bare Forschungsrichtung sein Interesse gefunden hat. Schon in frühen Arbei ten von Otto Opitz finden sich spieltheoretische Überlegungen, die Aus gangspunkt für Forschungsaktivitäten in den Gebieten Operations Research und Unternehmensplanung sowie Volkswirtschaftslehre waren. Natürlich ha ben Entwicklungen in der Informatik seine wissenschaftlichen Arbeiten be pe-gestützter Software zur Datenana einflußt, wobei die Bereitstellung von lyse den Methodeneinsatz in der Lehre unterstützt hat.
