Thomas Eakins, The Chess Players, 1875
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.
