Smarter Than You Think PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Smarter Than You Think free pdf From the 'Wired' and 'New York Times Magazine' contributor, a brilliant examination into how the internet is profoundly changing the way we think. In this groundbreaking book, Clive Thompson argues that the internet is boosting our brainpower, encouraging new ways of thinking, and making us more - not less - intelligent as is so often claimed. Our lives have been changed irrevocably by the rise of the internet. But as we rely more and more on machines to help us think, our thinking is becoming richer and more complex. We learn more, retain it longer, write in curious new forms, and even think entirely new types of thoughts. 'Smarter Than You Think' is filled with stories of people who are using technology to boost their brains. Meet the ageing millionaire who is saving a digital copy of everything that happens to him, the leading artificial-intelligence researcher who is creating software that will sense your mood and many other fascinating characters who are reaching new heights with digital help. Lucidly written and argued, 'Smarter Than You Think' is a breathtaking original look at our Brave New World.
