Daily Thoughts 11/10/2017

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

Last night, I read some of Thinking Machines The Quest for Artificial Intelligence And Where It's Taking Us Next by Luke Dormehl.  This book takes a historical approach in discussing artificial intelligence.  Right now, it is describing the difference between symbolic AI and neural networks.

I checked the displays and the gift books this morning.

I spent time working on the December calendar of events.  I also started planning some events for January.  We are going to do some training for e-books for the staff this December.  We also have a chess teacher for adults and are planning on doing some board game programs for teens.

We are hoping to show the movie, 13th in January.

I read through a copy of Booklist.

I checked out the book, The Artists Way A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity by Julia Cameron.

I read some more of Thinking Machines on the way home.  I am reading about chatbots and digital assistants.
