Besides being a profound
and entertaining meditation
on human thought and
creativity, this book looks at
the surprising points of
contact between the music
of Bach, the artwork of
Escher, and the
mathematics of Gödel. It
also looks at the prospects
for computers and artificial
intelligence (AI) for
mimicking human thought.

Gödel, Escher, Bach

Robots already walk,
talk and dance; they
can react to our facial
expressions and obey
verbal commands.
When they take the
next step and become
fully autonomous,
what will they do?
Will we be partners or
rivals? Could we meld
into a single species
-
Robo sapiens?


"Robo Sapiens" is a
field guide to our
mechanical future.

A humorous examination with
serious overtones of the concepts
of space, time, and dimension.

This is accepted as an essential
read by all computer geeks, just
like Lord of the Rings and
Neuromancer and the Tao of
Pooh.


It's kind of a religious work, and a
mathematical treatise, and a fun
story of persecution and belief.
You'll find yourself wanting to
write a screensaver that emulates
the well
-
detailed life of the
flatlanders.

E
xtends the basic concepts of
Darwinian evolution to the

heart
of the

debate on the origins of life
and the maintenance of order in
complex biological systems.

F
ocuses on the concept of self
-
organization
-

the first time this
concept has been incorporated
into evolutionary theory.
S
hows
how complex systems, contrary to
expectations, can spontaneously
exhibit stunning degrees of order,
and how this order in turn is
essential for the emergence and
development of life on Earth.

Focusing on studies
of how humans
categorize objects and
ideas, this book
examines the new
understanding of
human thought which
proposes that human
reason is imaginative,
metaphorical, and
intrinsically linked
with the human body.

The author

sets out to provide
an abstract model of how the
human mind really works
:

our
minds consist of a huge
aggregation of tiny mini
-
minds or agents that have
evolved to perform highly
specific tasks. Most of these
agents lack the attributes we
think of as intelligence and are
severely limited in their ability
to intercommunicate. Yet
rational thought, feeling, and
purposeful action result from
the interaction of these basic
components.

Defining beauty as the
mating of simplicity
and power, Gelernter
draws analogies with
the design of cars and
of bridges, and shows
how the most
innovative minds in
computing, from Alan
Turing onwards, have
always been obsessed
by elegance.

GST is certainly the
best intent we have to
transcend the
mechanistic worldview
from the point of view
of the new science. And
there is just one way to
transcend that
framework and it just
by positing a new
sphere to manage
complexity: the sphere
of life.

This is an authoritative
and comprehensive tour
of the frontiers of the
burgeoning science of the
creation of artificial life.
The author surveys what
has been achieved so far

This is a simple
introduction to UML from
the special perspective of
real
-
time systems. The
author has substantial

This text examines what is
currently known about
building safe
electromechanical systems
and looks at past accidents
to see what practical lessons
can be applied to new
computer
-
controlled
systems.


The book uses real accidents
to illustrate the points being
made and shows how to
anticipate accidents before
they occur.

This is a catalogue of well
designed, practical design
patterns for objectoriented
systems. The book also
contains a more detailed
description of the rationale for,
motivation behind, and
experience of using design
patterns. The book should
enable readers to use design
patterns in the object
-
oriented
development process and to
solve specific design problems
using patterns.

Since the first publication of
The Mythical Man
-
Month in
1975, no software engineer's
bookshelf has been complete
without it. Many software
engineers and computer
scientists have claimed to be
"on their second or third copy"
of the book.


This is
Fred Brooks's
legendary collection of essays
on the management of
computer programming
projects. Brooks's well
-
known
1986 article,
No Silver Bullet
,
is also included.

A vision of the future of
humanity. It explores how
the sciences of complexity
-

the study of self

organization and the
evolution of complex
systems
-

coupled with the
power of modern
computing, have ripened
into tools that can help us
understand the systems of
which we are a part.

Roger Penrose's original and
provocative ideas about the
large
-
scale physics of the
Universe, the small
-
scale
world of quantum physics and
the physics of the mind have
been the subject of controversy
and discussion

(
"The
Emperor's New Mind" and
"Shadows of the Mind“
)
.

In this volume, he summarizes
and updates his thinking in
these complex areas to present
a masterful summary of those
areas of physics in which he
feels there are major
unresolved problems.
