Book Summary:

In Things That Make Us Smart, Donald A. Norman explores the complex interaction between human thought and the technology it creates, arguing for the development of machines that fit our minds, rather than minds that must conform to the machine.Humans have always worked with objects to extend our cognitive powers, from counting on our fingers to designing massive supercomputers. But advanced technology does more than merely assist with thought and memory—the machines we create begin to shape how we think and, at times, even what we value. Norman, in exploring this complex relationship between humans and machines, gives us the first steps towards demanding a person-centered redesign of the machines that surround our lives.

Book Summary:

By the author of THE DESIGN OF EVERYDAY THINGS. Insightful and whimsical, profoundly intelligent and easily accessible, Don Norman has been exploring the design of our world for decades, exploring this complex relationship between humans and machines. In this seminal work, fully revised and updated, Norman gives us the first steps towards demanding a person-centered redesign of the machines we use every day. Humans have always worked with objects to extend our cognitive powers, from counting on our fingers to designing massive supercomputers. But advanced technology does more than merely assist with memory—the machines we create begin to shape how we think and, at times, even what we value. In THINGS THAT MAKE US SMART, Donald Norman explores the complex interaction between human thought and the technology it creates, arguing for the development of machines that fit our minds, rather than minds that must conform to the machine.

Book Summary:

An examination of the complex interaction between the human mind and the "tools for thought" it creates calls for the development of machines that fit that mind rather than ones to which humans must tailor their minds.

Book Summary:

"This book is motivated by a fundamental puzzle about human cognition: how can we apparently be so stupid and so smart at the same time? On the one hand, the catalogue of human error is vast: we perceive things that aren't there and fail to perceive things right in front of us, we forget things that happened and remember things that didn't happen, we're inconsistent, biased, myopic, overly optimistic, and-despite this litany of imperfections-overconfident. In short, we appear to be as far as one can imagine from an ideal of rationality. On the other hand, there is an equally vast catalogue of findings in support of human rationality: we come close to optimal performance in domains ranging from motor control and sensory perception to prediction, communication, decision making, and logical reasoning. This puzzle has been around for as long as people have contemplated the nature of human intelligence, though it is now amplified by the modern revolution in AI. In this book, Samuel J. Gershman offers a new explanation, grounded in computational neuroscience, for this puzzle. He argues that the errors that the brain makes-those that make us "stupid"-are not haphazard "hacks" or "kluges" as some have argued. Rather, they are inevitable consequences of a brain optimized to operate under natural information processing constraints. In this book, Gershman develops this argument and shows how it reveals a deeper computational logic underlying a range of errors in human cognition. Importantly, he does not develop a bespoke explanation for each individual error; rather, he develops a uniform computational logic that can be invoked to explain diverse and superficially distinct phenomena. The result is a small set of unifying principles for understanding both the successes and the failures of cognition"--

Book Summary:

This book is focused on the Internet of Things (IoT) services and smart environments that can be of assistance to the elderly and individuals living with dementia or some sensory impairment. The book outlines the requirements of the systems that aim to furnish some digital sensory or cognitive assistance to the individuals and their caregivers. Internet of Things and Smart Environments: Assistive Technologies for Disability, Dementia, and Aging covers the important evolutions of the IoT, the sensors, actuators, wireless communication and pervasive computing systems, and other enabling technologies that power up this megatrend infrastructure. The use of the IoT-based systems in improving the conventional assistive technologies and provisions of ambient assisted living are also covered. The book takes an impartial, and yet holistic, view to providing research insights and inspirations for more development works in the areas related to assistive IoT. It will show the potentials of using normally available interactive devices, like smartphones or smart TVs, which can be supplemented with low-cost gadgets or apps to provide assistive capabilities. It aims to accentuate the need for taking a comprehensive and combinatory view of the comprising topics and approaches that are based on the visions and ideas from all stakeholders. The book will examine these points and considerations to conclude with recommendations for future development works and research directions. This book can be of value to a diverse array of audience. The researchers and developers in healthcare and medicine, aged care and disability services, as well as those working in the IoT-related fields, may find many parts of this book useful and stimulating. It can be of great value to postgraduate and research students working in these areas. It can also be adapted for use in upper-level classroom courses relevant to communication and smart technologies, IoT applications, and assistive technologies. Many parts of the book can be of interest to the elderly and individuals living with a disability, as well as their families and caregivers. From an industry perspective, it can be of interest to software, hardware, and particularly app developers working on the IoT applications, smart homes and environments, and assistive technologies for the elderly and people living with disability or dementia.
