Burning the Books
a history of burning and destroying the written knowledge
The quasivisual nature of the phenomenology of comprehension has been almost entirely ignored by researchers in cognitive science, particularly in Artificial Intelligence, who have attempted to create language-understanding computer systems.
Data and Reality
the book title says it succinctly
Foundations of Statistical Natural Language Processing
Sometimes it felt a bit out-dated but the explanations of various algorithms and principles was very good and understanable.
Give and Take
Givers, takers and matchers. Givers are the most and least successful of all. I had to stop listening to this.
How to Win Friends and Influence People
One of the oldest self-help books. I am not the intended audience. I couldn’t follow his rules and being true to myself, authentic and consistent.
Introduction to Algorithms
Nevím, jestli jsem to dočetl.
It Starts With Food
Whole30 diet, not very good for vegans and vegetarians
J. S. Bach
Knížka, kterou jsem si opakovaně půjčoval z adamovské knihovny. Byl jsem snad jediný.
“Why take five hundred pages,” he asks, “to develop an idea whose oral demonstration fits into a few minutes?” (Thursday, June 19, 2014, 07:14 PM, page 155)
An anthology of Hofstadter’s articles in Scientific American
Zoufalství ve střetu s bezhlavou mašinérií
Our world needs introverts. Being introvert is normal.
Slova a pravidla
Knížka od Pinkera. Přestal jsem ji číst, protože nesouhlasím s teorií, kterou tam Pinker popisuje. Obsahuje spoustu pěkných příkladů, ale jejich interpretace mě rozčilovala, tak jsem ji asi v půlce odložil.
The Book of Why
Not very engaging but definitely important topic of correlation, causation, statistics and AI.
The Parasitic Mind
Bit misleading title for the book full of angry arguments against overly liberal policies mainly in USA. I stopped listening to the audio version of the book circa in the middle.
The Rational Optimist
The best time to live is now. And it will be even better.
Think and Grow Rich
Self-help book from 1937. After reading so many self-help book before this one, I realized it gets boring…
When Things Fall Apart
A soothing voice will tell you how to cope with problems in your life, but not how to solve them.
