            The Korean War is multiple wars. Not only is it a war that began on 25 June 1950, but it is also a conflict that is rooted in Korea's colonial experiences, postcolonial desires and frustrations, and interventions and partitions imposed by outside forces. In South Korea, the war i...s a site of contestation: Which war should be remembered and how should it be remembered? The site has been overwhelmed by the Manichean official discourse that pits evil communists against innocent Koreans, but the hegemonic project remains unfinished in the face of the resiliency embodied in the survivors who have withstood multiple killings by the state. The historical significance of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, Republic of Korea (TRCK), lies in its success in bringing back to life the voices of the silenced that complicate the hegemonic memory of the war as yugio, the June 25th war. At the same time, the Commission embodies the structural dilemma that the effort to give voice to the silenced has turned to the state to redress the state's wrongdoings. The TRCK as such stands on the problematic boundary between violence and post-violence, insecurity and security, exception and normalcy. Truth and reconciliation, and human security, are perhaps located in a process of defining and redefining the boundary. This edited volume explores such political struggles for the future reflected in the TRCK's work on the past war that is still present. This book was published as a special issue of Critical Asian Studies.

            We are in the early stages of the next big platform shift in healthcare computing. Fueled by Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the cloud, AI is already transforming the way health and medical services are provided. As the industry transitions from static digital repositories to in...telligent systems there will be winners and losers in the race to innovate and automate the provision of services. Critical to success will be the role leaders play in shaping the use of AI to be less artificial and more intelligent in support of improving processes to deliver care and keep people healthy and productive across all care settings. This book defines key technical, process, people and ethical issues that will need to be understood and addressed in planning and executing an effective AI plan. It provides clinical and business leaders with a framework for successfully moving organizations from the aspiration to execution phase of intelligent systems to improve clinical, operational and financial performance. Written for clinical and business leaders in health, this book defines Artificial Intelligence and its role in driving digital transformation to improve clinical, operational and financial outcomes of provider, payer and public health organizations worldwide. It provides readers with an in-depth (but non-technical) look at the technology building blocks of AI (e.g. machine learning, cognitive services, bots) with real-world use cases cited along the way to illustrate the power of AI in healthcare settings. This book defines a practical planning framework empowering clinical, business and IT leaders to understand AI and create an organizational plan to implement intelligent solutions that increase the effectiveness of every worker in achieving the goals and objectives of health and medical organizations.

            Making an artificial brain is not a part of artificial intelligence. It will be a revolutionary journey of mankind exploring a science where one cannot write an equation, a material will vibrate like geometric shape, those shapes will change to make decisions. Geometry of silence... play like a musical instrument to mimic a human brain, our thought, imagination, everything would be a 3D shape playing as music, composing music would be the brain's singular job. For a century Turing machine ruled human civilization, it was believed that irrespective of complexity all events add up linearly. This book is a thesis to explore the science of decision making where events are 3D geometric shapes, -events grow within and above, never side by side. We document here inventions and discoveries in neuroscience, computer science, materials science, mathematics and chemistry that explored the possibility of brain or universe as time crystal. The philosophy of Turing, the philosophy of membrane based neuroscience and the philosophy of linear, sequential thought process are challenged here by considering that a nested time crystal encompasses the entire conscious universe. Instead of algorithm the pattern of maximum free will is generated mathematically and that very pattern is encoded in materials such that its natural vibration integrates random events exactly similar to the way nature does it in every remote corner of our universe. Find, how an artificial brain avoids any necessity for algorithm or programming using the pattern of free will.

            Today, there are few in senior management positions who can afford to ignore modern information technology, and few individuals who would prefer to be without it. Modern IT is key to organizational performance; yet we often assume the benefits will occur without forethought or ef...fort. As managerial tasks become more complex, so the nature of the required information systems changes - from structured, routine support to ad hoc, unstructured, complex enquiries at the highest levels of management. If taken for granted, serious implications can arise for organizations. This fifth edition of Strategic Information Management has been brought fully up to date with recent developments in the management of information systems, including digital transformation strategy, the issues surrounding big data, and algorithmic decision-making. The book provides a rich source of material reflecting recent thinking on the key issues facing executives, drawing from a wide range of contemporary articles written by leading experts in North America, Europe, and Australia. Combining theory with practice, each section is fully introduced, includes further reading and questions for further discussion. Designed for MBA, Master's level students, and advanced undergraduate students taking courses in information systems management, it also provides a wealth of information and references for researchers.

            The AI revolution is moving at a breakneck speed. Organizations are beginning to invest in innovative ways to monetize their data through the use of artificial intelligence. Businesses need to understand the reality of AI. To be successful it is imperative that organizations unde...rstand that augmented intelligence is the secret to success. Augmented Intelligence: The Business Power of Human-Machine Collaboration is about the process of combining human and machine intelligence. The book provides business leaders and AI data experts with an understanding of the value of augmented intelligence and its ability to help win competitive markets. The book focuses on the requirement to clearly manage the foundational data used for augmented intelligence. It focuses on the risks of improper data use and delves into the ethics and governance of data in the era of augmented intelligence. In this book we explore the difference between weak augmentation that is based on automating well understood processes and strong augmentation that is designed to rethink business processes through the inclusion of data, AI and machine learning. What experts are saying about Augmented Intelligence The book you are about to read is of great importance because we increasingly rely on machine learning and AI. Therefore, it is critical that we understand the ability to create an environment in which businesses can have the tools to understand data from a holistic perspective. What is imperative is to be able to make better decisions based on an understanding of the behavior and thinking of our customers so that we can take the best next action. This book provides a clear understanding of the impact of augmented intelligence on both society and business. -Tsvi Gal, Managing Director, Enterprise Technology and Services, Morgan Stanley Our mission has always been to help clients apply AI to better predict and shape future outcomes, empower higher value work, and automate how work gets done.

            A New York Times bestselling author and tech columnist's counter-intuitive guide to staying relevant - and employable - in the machine age by becoming irreplaceably human. It's not a futuristic scenario anymore. We've been taught that to compete with automation and AI, we'll have... to become more like the machines themselves, building up technical skills like coding. But, there's simply no way to keep up. What if all the advice is wrong? And what do we need to do instead to become futureproof? We tend to think of automation as a blue-collar phenomenon that will affect truck drivers, factory workers, and other people with repetitive manual jobs. But it's much, much broader than that. Lawyers are being automated out of existence. Last year, JPMorgan Chase built a piece of software called COIN, which uses machine learning to review complicated contracts and documents. It used to take the firm's Lawyers more than 300,000 hours every year to review all of those documents. Now, it takes a few seconds, and requires just one human to run the programme. Doctors are being automated out of existence, too. Last summer, a Chinese tech company built a deep learning algorithm that diagnosed brain cancer and other diseases faster and more accurately than a team of 15 top Chinese doctors. Kevin Roose has spent the past few years studying the question of how people, communities, and organisations adapt to periods of change, from the Industrial Revolution to the present. And the insight that is sweeping through Silicon Valley as we speak - that in an age dominated by machines, it's human skills that really matter - is one of the more profound and counter-intuitive ideas he's discovered. It's the antidote to the doom-and-gloom worries many people feel when they think about AI and automation. And it's something everyone needs to hear. In nine accessible, prescriptive chapters, Roose distills what he has learned about how we will survive the future, that the way to become futureproof is to
