Imagine it forward : courage, creativity, and the power of change
Comstock, Beth, author
New York : Currency, 
"From one of today's foremost innovation leaders, an inspiring and practical guide to mastering change in the face of relentless uncertainty. The world will never be slower than it is right now, says Beth Comstock, the former Vice Chair and head of marketing and innovation at GE. But confronting the relentless pace of change is hard. Employees get downsized; companies find themselves disrupted as challengers steal away customers. To thrive in today's world, every one of us has to become a change-maker. In Imagine It Forward, Comstock shares lessons from a thirty year career as the change-maker in chief, on spotting trends and driving innovation. In a candid and deeply personal narrative, Beth describes her successes and failures from the front lines of business, across industries ranging from media to health, energy to manufacturing, finance to the Industrial Internet. As the woman who spearheaded Ecomagination, and GE's famed FastWorks methodology, she helped to turn a process-heavy, risk-averse culture, to one that increasingly embraced transparency, adaptability, iteration, and discovery. She shows how each one of us can -- in fact, must -- become a "change maker"--an instigator of change -by giving ourselves permission to imagine a better way. For Comstock, the concept of being "change ready" calls for the courage to defy convention, the resilience to overcome doubts, and the savvy to know when to go around corporate gatekeepers to reinvent what is possible. It means being willing to move forward without having all the answers, while recognizing that inevitably there will be tension and conflict. It requires an uncompromising faith in experimentation, and a belief that disruption is something you engage, not simply respond to. Among the practical takeaways Comstock offers in Imagine It Forward: Give yourself permission. Every change maker must learn to give herself permission to push outside expectations and boundaries. The power of discovery. Discovery is the process of bringing the outside into your organization. It is about infusing yourself and your team with a spirit of inquiry and curiosity, turning the world into a classroom. Find a "Spark.' Bring in provocateurs to challenge established ways of thinking; they can be a powerful catalyst for change. Story Craft. Strategy is a story well told. To innovate successfully, you have to craft a new narrative about what the organization stands for in order to change how people think and act. "Ideas are rarely the problem," writes Comstock. "What holds all of us back, really--is fear. It's the attachment to the old, to 'What We Know.'" Confronting today's accelerating change requires an extraordinary degree of problem-solving, collaboration, and forward-thinking leadership to unlock everyone's potential. Imagine It Forward masterfully points the way"--

Algorithmic aspects of machine learning
Moitra, Ankur, 1985- author
Cambridge, United Kingdom ; Cambridge University Press, 2018
This book bridges theoretical computer science and machine learning by exploring what the two sides can teach each other. It emphasizes the need for flexible, tractable models that better capture not what makes machine learning hard, but what makes it easy. Theoretical computer scientists will be introduced to important models in machine learning and to the main questions within the field. Machine learning researchers will be introduced to cutting-edge research in an accessible format, and gain familiarity with a modern, algorithmic toolkit, including the method of moments, tensor decompositions and convex programming relaxations. The treatment beyond worst-case analysis is to build a rigorous understanding about the approaches used in practice and to facilitate the discovery of exciting, new ways to solve important long-standing problems.

AI superpowers : China, Silicon Valley, and the new world order
Lee, Kai-Fu, author
Boston : Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2018
Introduction -- China's Sputnik moment -- Copycats in the Coliseum -- China's alternate Internet universe -- A tale of two countries -- The four waves of AI -- Utopia, dystopia, and the real AI crisis -- The wisdom of cancer -- A blueprint for human co-existence with AI -- Our global AI story.
The United States has long been the leader in Artificial Intelligence. But Dr. Kai-Fu Lee--one of the world's most respected experts on AI--reveals that China has caught up to the US at an astonishingly rapid pace. As Sino-American competition in AI heats up, Lee envisions China and the US forming a powerful duopoly in AI. He outlines the upheaval of traditional jobs, how the suddenly unemployed will find new ways of making their lives meaningful, and how the Chinese and American governments will have to cope with the changing economic landscape.

The pan-industrial revolution : how new manufacturing titans will transform the world
D'Aveni, Richard A., author
Boston : Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2018
"A stunning look at what will happen to global industry as 3-D printing becomes a worldwide phenomenon. Richard D'Aveni contends that this is beginning to happen now and will have far-reaching effects that most corporate and governmental leaders have yet to anticipate. Best-selling author Richard D'Aveni contends that the advent of massive, industrial-sized 3-D printing is already happening quietly under the radar, and that it will have a far-reaching impact that most corporate and governmental leaders have yet to anticipate or understand. 3-D printing isn't just a desktop technology for churning out small trinkets and toys. In this revelatory account, D'Aveni reveals how this breakthrough technology has been secretly adapted by powerful Fortune 500 companies so that they can now manufacture jet engines, huge turbines, automobiles and pretty much everything else in just a matter of days--not weeks or months. Not only will this amazing technology totally change the landscape of manufacturing everywhere, but as D'Aveni contends, it is also destined to have a dramatic effect on the world economy. A small handful of massively powerful corporations--the pan-industrials--will become as important as any tech giant in structuring the global order"--
