21 Open Access Books about AI, Data, Robots & Business you can klick on – Part 1

Dear guest!

One thing we should remember: Thanks to the widespread and more public available libraries since the beginning of the print book at the start of the Renaissance until the spread of information through the World Wide Web since the 1991:

The access to knowledge has grown dramatically to almost anyone in the world and this stands in sharp contrast to the keeping of knowledge in secret and for a few selected people in the past. But thanks to technology like letterpress printing (credits of course in the west to Johannes G.) and the work of Tim Berners-Lee for the WWW: data, information, and knowledge is now in our Information Age at almost any place in the world and at any time available.

Which can be of course a challenge and leads sometimes even to internet addiction when digital detoxing is not done in time. But I am not an expert in Clinical Psychology, so turn to some other expertise in case of interest in this matter.

Book recommendations: Surely you find helpful insights on “how to stay smart in a smart world” in the same named book by renowned Gerd Gigerenzer (see also his new 2023 published book The Intelligence of Intuition for a deeper understanding of human decision making; Note: free access to Chapter 1).

In the last twenty years another trend emerged and the publication of research papers and textbooks by open access lowers sometimes expensive orders of magazines and textbooks by publishers. One great source for this is the Directory of Open Access Books (doab), which I used for the research on the theme of this newsblog article.

So enjoy, select, klick on, and read one ore more of the following books on Artificial Intelligence, software, robots, business, and related fields.
