            The Discrete Charm of the Machine: Why the World Became Digital
             

            The Discrete Charm of the Machine: Why the World Became Digital (EPUB ebook)

            By Steiglitz, Ken

            The genesis of the digital idea and why it transformed civilizationA few short decades ago, we were informed by the smooth signals of analog television and radio; we communicated using our analog telephones; and we even computed with analog computers. Today our world is digital, ...built with zeros and ones. Why did this revolution occur? The Discrete Charm of the Machine explains, in an engaging and accessible manner, the varied physical and logical reasons behind this radical transformation.The spark of individual genius shines through this story of innovation: the stored program of Jacquard's loom; Charles Babbage's logical branching; Alan Turing's brilliant abstraction of the discrete machine; Harry Nyquist's foundation for digital signal processing; Claude Shannon's breakthrough insights into the meaning of information and bandwidth; and Richard Feynman's prescient proposals for nanotechnology and quantum computing. Ken Steiglitz follows the progression of these ideas in the building of our digital world, from the internet and artificial intelligence to the edge of the unknown. Are questions like the famous traveling salesman problem truly beyond the reach of ordinary digital computers? Can quantum computers transcend these barriers? Does a mysterious magical power reside in the analog mechanisms of the brain? Steiglitz concludes by confronting the moral and aesthetic questions raised by the development of artificial intelligence and autonomous robots.The Discrete Charm of the Machine examines why our information technology, the lifeblood of our civilization, became digital, and challenges us to think about where its future trajectory may lead.

            Scientists and engineers from industry, academia, and major research institutes from 19 countries contributed to the Vienna Conference on Human Computer Interaction (VCHCI '93). This volume contains the proceedings of the conference. Only submissions of the highest scientific qua...lity were accepted as papers, and all contributions address the latest research and application in the human aspects of design and use of computing systems. The papers cover a large field of human computer interaction including design, evaluation, interactive architectures, cognitive models, workplace environment, and HCI application areas. The motto of the conference, Fin de Si cle, affiliates Vienna's intellectual tradition to the field's progressive development at the end of this century.The VCHCI is focused on showing that HCI is more than an area to beautify interaction with computers, provokes disputes among its different contributing fields, does not flee the vital questions forpeople using computers, and provides radically new opportunities for users.

            The International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction EWHCI '93 was thethird conference in a series which started in 1991 in Moscow. Like its predecessors, it was occasioned by the long separation of workers in HCI from one another and the new opportunity to learn from one a...nother and to start cooperations with each other. The conference was international, with papers and participants from 16 countries. This volume contains a selection of the best papers presented at the conference. The papers are grouped into parts on: foundations of HCI; techniques, tools and paradigms for interface design; information visualization; empiricalstudies; multimedia; hypertext; customizing interfaces; teaching and learning; applications.
