<b>Title:</b> A bridge to higher mathematics / Valentin Deaconu, University of Nevada, Reno, USA, Donald C. Pfaff, University of Nevada, Reno, USA.<br/><b>Author:</b> Deaconu, Valentin.<br/><b>Call Number:</b> QA9.54 .D43 2017<br/><b>Description:</b> This is an introduction to proofs book for the course offering a
transition to more advanced mathematics. It contains logic, sets, functions,
relations, the construction of rational, real and complex numbers and their
properties. It also has a chapter on cardinality and a chapter on counting
techniques. The book explains various proof techniques and has many examples
which help with the transition to more advanced classes like real analysis,
groups, rings and fields or topology.--<br/><img src="https://library.waubonsee.edu/images/covers/cover/100/120/docid/SD_ILS:250537" alt="Book Cover" border="0" /> Radical technologies : the design of everyday life / Adam Greenfield.

<b>Title:</b> Radical technologies : the design of everyday life / Adam Greenfield.<br/><b>Author:</b> Greenfield, Adam,<br/><b>Call Number:</b> QA76.5915 .G745 2017<br/><b>Description:</b> Everywhere we turn, our everyday experience is being overlaid and
interrupted by startling new technologies. Today, we depend on the smartphone
as an interface to an urban environment we share with autonomous drones and
self-driving cars, even as we use augmented-reality applications to interact
with things that aren't quite there. Now 3D printing offers us unprecedented
fine-grained control over the form and distribution of matter, while the
blockchain promises to remake the way we record and exchange value. And all the
while, fiendishly complex algorithmic systems are operating quietly, reshaping
the economy, transforming the fundamental terms of our politics, and even
beginning to etch away at what it means to be human. 00Just how did these
things come to be? How do they work? What (and whose) values do they reproduce?
And what kind of choices do they present us with? "Radical Technologies" raises
all of these questions to the surface and provokes us to ask what we might want
to do with them now, when we might still be able to shape their impact on our
shared future.

http://library.waubonsee.edu/ckey/249558&ISBN=9780465096121
<b>Title:</b> Significant figures : the lives and work of great mathematicians / Ian Stewart.<br/><b>Author:</b> Stewart, Ian, 1945-<br/><b>Call Number:</b> QA28 .S74 2017<br/><b>Description:</b> A celebrated mathematician traces the history of math through the
lives and work of twenty-five pioneering mathematicians. In Significant
Figures, acclaimed mathematician Ian Stewart introduces the visionaries of
mathematics throughout history. Delving into the lives of twenty-five great
mathematicians, Stewart examines the roles they played in creating, inventing,
and discovering the mathematics we use today. Through these short biographies,
we get acquainted with the history of mathematics from Archimedes to Benoit
Mandelbrot, and learn about those too often left out of the cannon, such as
Muhammad ibn Musa al-Khwarizmi (c. 780-850), the creator of algebra, and
Augusta Ada King (1815-1852), Countess of Lovelace, the world's first computer
programmer. Tracing the evolution of mathematics over the course of two
millennia, Significant Figures will educate and delight aspiring mathematicians
and experts alike.

http://library.waubonsee.edu/ckey/242649&ISBN=148421157X
<b>Title:</b> Social machines : the coming collision of artificial intelligence, social networking, and humanity / James Hendler, Alice M. Mulvehill.<br/><b>Author:</b> Hendler, James A.,<br/><b>Call Number:</b> QA76.76.I58 H46 2016<br/><b>Description:</b> "Will your next doctor be a human being-or a machine? Will you have a
choice? If you do, what should you know before making it? This book introduces
the reader to the pitfalls and promises of artificial intelligence in its
modern incarnation and the growing trend of systems to "reach off the Web" into
the real world. The convergence of AI, social networking, and modern computing
is creating an historic inflection point in the partnership between human
beings and machines with potentially profound impacts on the future not only of
computing but of our world. AI experts and researchers James Hendler and Alice
Mulvehill explore the social implications of AI systems in the context of a
close examination of the technologies that make them possible. The authors
critically evaluate the utopian claims and dystopian counterclaims of
prognosticators. Social Machines: The Coming Collision of Artificial
Intelligence, Social Networking, and Humanity is your field guide to the future
of your machine-mediated relationships with other human beings and with
increasingly intelligent machines." -- Publisher's description
