See the near future--and past--of an alternate world through the eyes of James Deon, a computer scientist and neurologist who has questions about his past. With the help of a hybrid supercomputer... More > simulator called the "Vitality 2," Dr. James Deon plans to relive fifteen years of his past... and not just for the thrill. His goal is serious--to see if changing just three things about his past will give him utopia. But will he witness what he anticipates, or something totally different and ultimately terrifying? Changing highschool events and saving loved ones from sudden death may lead to more than he could ever have known, as a strange force called "Chaos" descends upon his world.< Less

Technology’s advances are unable to stem the forces of war, overpopulation, and environmental pollution. Global politics are a complex mess of alliances and hostilities, and the world seems to... More > be poised on the brink of self-destruction. The United States is at the forefront of the world’s attempt to solve what appears to be an unsolvable problem; but even the help of its immensely powerful supercomputer, SAM, is of little avail. Yet as grim as things seem, Mai Roberts, the brilliant African scientist in charge of the UN’s Nextfest Summit on Sustainable Growth, is brooding over an even grimmer – but perhaps ultimately effective – solution. Mai Roberts lets loose a lethal nanobiological agent, a scrap of homemade germ warfare that quickly spreads through Nextfest and then across the planet. With the population greatly depleted, many of the dangers that had faced the world due to overpopulation gradually fade away. The survivors are left with the challenge of rebuilding human society.< Less

Edward of Planet Earth By Nicholas Eftimiades
eBook (ePub): $3.05
200 years in the future Edward Temple, a "uniquely ordinary person" becomes caught up in a zany world where self-aware super-computers are as argumentative, egotistical, demanding, and... More > emotionally needy as the humans they serve. Everything is fair game as Edward navigates befuddled governments, psychotic software, greedy corporations, overly attentive robots, and romance. And of course jelly donuts find their way into the story. Join Edward and his new found friends as they are drawn into a quest to discover the true nature of God, which computers believe to be more software than spiritual. So buckle up and put your seat backs and tray tables in the upright positions and join the adventure today.

THE DARK SIDE OF THE BRAIN By Rafael Salin-Pascual MD, PhD
eBook (PDF): $15.95
The brain is, in that sense, like having a supercomputer with a faster processor, with memory and hard disk into hundred RAMs, very broad bands, capable of generating not only their own programs, but... More > also the new hardware However, if you do not know what your brain is capable to do, that would be as if you use a “Super-blue” computer only as a word processor or worst scenario, just to play backgammon. You are wasted about ninety-nine percent of a super machine and the worst is that if you do not use, like whatever organ in your body. But guess what? That will be out of order. Same goes for the brain, legs, arms and even your tongue. In this book, I tried to make a horizontal inclusive connection with brain areas, but also with history of our species, to discover biased, myths and therefore, poorly understood mechanisms.< Less

Computational Genomics: Current Methods By Nikola Stojanovic
eBook (PDF): $128.79
An overview of comparative genomics and the analysis of sequenced genomes. Topics cover the recent methods used in the study of mobile DNA elements, motif finding and the characterization of segments... More > within DNA sequences, theoretical considerations and techniques in the construction and analysis of sequence alignments, and the methods for processing microarray data. Also included is an overview of the computational issues involved in the study of the HIV virus. The last part of the book provides an overview of the resources and technologies aimed to facilitate core genomics research: databases and supercomputing applications, the focus being on emerging technologies such as the interconnecting of resources, the development of meta-databases and data exchange protocols. The book concludes with a review of networking technologies and resources, as well as some of the applications of distributed computing in genomics. An essential book for anyone involved in genomics or bioinformatics.< Less
ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE & INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY By Andreas Sofroniou
eBook (PDF): $8.98
(1 Ratings)
Artificial intelligence (AI) is the science of making machines do things that would require intelligence if done by humans; sensing, reasoning, pattern recognition, speech recognition, and... More > problem-solving. The degree of sophistication that constitutes AI tends to be revised upwards with each new generation of computers. At its most ambitious level AI has the goal of creating computers and robots capable of reproducing a broad range of human behaviour. Doubts remain about whether such systems are theoretically or practically possible, because of the vast complexity of the human brain. Unlike the human brain, most computers act serially, one operation at a time. Even supercomputers developed in the 1980s that use 'parallel processing' to carry out billions of operations per second barely begin to match human brain capacity. The tasks that have been studied from this point of view include games, language translation, natural-language understanding, fault diagnosis, robotics, and supplying expert advice.< Less
