 Each technological epoch is built on top of the previous. The advent of computers allowed the advent of the internet, which in-turn allowed for the advent of social.

The next epoch is increasingly considered to be the AI (Artificial Intelligence) revolution- where the world's information is hierarchically ordered to create what is, ostensibly, consciousness but with intelligence greater than every living human being on the planet.

In effect, the internet is set to wake up.

This is the endeavor of a number of organizations, with Google leading the charge. Ray Kurzweil, the head of engineering at Google, thinks they will get there by 2029.

In the run up to this there are many applications that will be created that will start to make us see the incredible power in, what will likely be considered to be, a new utility- alongside gas, electricity and water.

If only half of what these engineers are saying comes to fruition, then the way that we navigate our waking world is about to undergo the biggest transformation that any single generation has ever experienced. 

This book explores the incredible potential of the far reach of AI, the road leading up to it, the tantalizing possibilities for marketers and what they can do now to start to prepare.

Explores the Science and Practice Of Acoustics for Arts Centers

Employing the experiences of a world-renowned acoustician celebrated for the successful design of multi-use performing arts centers, Acoustics of Multi-Use Performing Arts Centers examines the complexities of this venue and discusses the challenges and solutions that arise in the concept, design, construction and commissioning phases.

This book addresses the various programming needs of a multi-use performing arts center (needs that can range from symphony, opera and ballet to highly-amplified concerts and Broadway productions) and provides instruction from the planning of the initial concept to the final tuning stages.

While assuming a basic understanding of the principals of sound, construction and performance, the author includes architectural drawings drawn to scale and presents case studies with in-depth discussion of undocumented halls. He also provides a full chapter on tuning multi-use halls and offers an inside look at design options for adjustable acoustics that include stage, pit and hall design.

In addition, the book:

Covers the fundamentals of acoustics as it relates to initial stages of multi-use hall design Explores the concepts of acoustics in terms of new and renovated spaces Defines the basic components of the building structure Examines floors, walls, ceilings, shells, and finishes and how they can be designed to achieve acoustic excellence Discusses how to use and tune adjustable acoustic systems in a multi-use hall in order to achieve acoustic excellence

Designed as a step-by-step guide to achieving outstanding acoustics in multi-use performance spaces, Acoustics of Multi-Use Performing Arts Centers serves students, architects, engineers, designers and acousticians.

When you understand how the mind works, you can think smarter—and act smarter.

Based on the precepts of cognitive science and drawing on a half century of interdisciplinary studies, Smart Thinking is the first book to reveal a three-part formula that distinguishes Smart Thinking from innate intelligence and shows how memory works, how to learn effectively, and how to use knowledge when you need to get things done.

Beginning with defining the difference between Smart Thinking and innate or raw intelligence, cognitive psychologist Art Markman demonstrates how it is possible to learn Smart Thinking that you can apply to the real world.

This engaging and practical book introduces a three-part formula for Smart Thinking, which demonstrates how anyone can:
• Develop Smart Habits
• Acquire High-Quality Knowledge
• Use High-Quality Knowledge when needed

Smart Thinking explores each part of the Smart Thinking formula and provides:
• An understanding of how the mind works and the means to replace self-limiting habits with those that foster Smart Thinking
• Insights into how memory functions and how to improve the quality of what you learn
• Ways to present new information effectively
• Specific techniques for improving your understanding of how the world works
• The ability to define and solve problems by finding the relevant knowledge from any area of expertise and applying it effectively

Drawing on multiple research disciplines, including psychology, artificial intelligence, philosophy, neuroscience, learning sciences, linguistics, anthropology, sociology, and education, Markman provides insights into the functioning of the mind and synthesizes this understanding into practical tools and exercises that develop new skills and achieve personal goals. The book culminates in tips for creating a Culture of Smart to make everyone in an organization more effective.
