The rousing story of the last gasp of human agency and how today’s best and brightest minds are endeavoring to put an end to it. It used to be that to diagnose an illness, interpret legal documents, analyze foreign policy, or write a newspaper article you needed a human being with specific skills—and maybe an advanced degree or two. These days, high-level tasks are increasingly being handled by algorithms that can do precise work not only with speed but also with nuance. These “bots” started with human programming and logic, but now their reach extends beyond what their creators ever expected. In this fascinating, frightening book, Christopher Steiner tells the story of how algorithms took over—and shows why the “bot revolution” is about to spill into every aspect of our lives, often silently, without our knowledge. The May 2010 “Flash Crash” exposed Wall Street’s reliance on trading bots to the tune of a 998-point market drop and $1 trillion in vanished market value. But that was just the beginning. In Automate This, we meet bots that are driving cars, penning haiku, and writing music mistaken for Bach’s. They listen in on our customer service calls and figure out what Iran would do in the event of a nuclear standoff. There are algorithms that can pick out the most cohesive crew of astronauts for a space mission or identify the next Jeremy Lin. Some can even ingest statistics from baseball games and spit out pitch-perfect sports journalism indistinguishable from that produced by humans. The interaction of man and machine can make our lives easier. But what will the world look like when algorithms control our hospitals, our roads, our culture, and our national security? What hap­pens to businesses when we automate judgment and eliminate human instinct? And what role will be left for doctors, lawyers, writers, truck drivers, and many others? Who knows—maybe there’s a bot learning to do your job this minute.

This book covers what Visual Basic developers need to know in order to combine Visual Basic with Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS). Veteran author Budi Kurniawan shows developers everything they need to know to successfully design and implement a Web application without over-simplifying the process or leaving out a single step. He provides a thorough treatment of Webclasses, which, though poorly documented elsewhere, are the key to connecting VB and IIS, while teaching developers how to build a successful VB based IIS application from start to finish.

Gain an in-depth understanding of software testing management and process issues that are critical for delivering high-quality software on time and within budget. Written by leading experts in the field, this book offers those involved in building and maintaining complex, mission-critical software systems a flexible, risk-based process to improve their software testing capabilities. Whether your organization currently has a well-defined testing process or almost no process, Systematic Software Testing provides unique insights into better ways to test your software.This book describes how to use a preventive method of testing, which parallels the software development lifecycle, and explains how to create and subsequently use test plans, test design, and test metrics. Detailed instructions are presented to help you decide what to test, how to prioritize tests, and when testing is complete. Learn how to conduct risk analysis and measure test effectiveness to maximize the efficiency of your testing efforts. Because organizational structure, the right people, and management are keys to better software testing, Systematic Software Testing explains these issues with the insight of the authorsOCO more than 25 years of experience."

No Code Required presents the various design, system architectures, research methodologies, and evaluation strategies that are used by end users programming on the Web. It also presents the tools that will allow users to participate in the creation of their own Web. Comprised of seven parts, the book provides basic information about the field of end-user programming. Part 1 points out that the Firefox browser is one of the differentiating factors considered for end-user programming on the Web. Part 2 discusses the automation and customization of the Web. Part 3 covers the different approaches to proposing a specialized platform for creating a new Web browser. Part 4 discusses three systems that focus on the customized tools that will be used by the end users in exploring large amounts of data on the Web. Part 5 explains the role of natural language in the end-user programming systems. Part 6 provides an overview of the assumptions on the accessibility of the Web site owners of the Web content. Lastly, Part 7 offers the idea of the Web-active end user, an individual who is seeking new technologies. The first book since Web 2.0 that covers the latest research, development, and systems emerging from HCI research labs on end user programming tools Featuring contributions from the creators of Adobe’s Zoetrope and Intel’s Mash Maker, discussing test results, implementation, feedback, and ways forward in this booming area
