For fans of computers and comedy alike, an accessible and entertaining look into how we can use artificial intelligence to make smart machines funny. Most robots and smart devices are not known for their joke-telling abilities. And yet, as computer scientist Tony Veale explains in Your Wit Is My Command, machines are not inherently unfunny; they are just programmed that way. By examining the mechanisms of humor and jokes--how jokes actually works--Veale shows that computers can be built with a sense of humor, capable not only of producing a joke but also of appreciating one. Along the way, he explores the humor-generating capacities of fictional robots ranging from B-9 in Lost in Space to TARS in Interstellar, maps out possible scenarios for developing witty robots, and investigates such aspects of humor as puns, sarcasm, and offensiveness. In order for robots to be funny, Veale explains, we need to analyze humor computationally. Using artificial intelligence (AI), Veale shows that joke generation is a knowledge-based process--a sense of humor is blend of wit and wisdom. He notes that existing technologies can detect sarcasm in conversation, and explains how some jokes can be pre-scripted while others are generated algorithmically--all while making the technical aspects of AI accessible for the general reader. Of course, there's no single algorithm or technology that we can plug in to make our virtual assistants or GPS voice navigation funny, but Veale provides a computational roadmap for how we might get there.

The story of The First Formic War continues in Earth Awakens. Nearly 100 years before the events of Orson Scott Card's bestselling novel Ender's Game, humans were just beginning to step off Earth and out into the Solar System. A thin web of ships in both asteroid belts; a few stations; a corporate settlement on Luna. No one had seen any sign of other space-faring races; everyone expected that First Contact, if it came, would happen in the future, in the empty reaches between the stars. Then a young navigator on a distant mining ship saw something moving too fast, heading directly for our sun. When the alien ship screamed through the solar system, it disrupted communications between the far-flung human mining ships and supply stations, and between them and Earth. So Earth and Luna were unaware that they had been invaded until the ship pulled into Earth orbit, and began landing terra-forming crews in China. Politics and pride slowed the response on Earth, and on Luna, corporate power struggles seemed more urgent than distant deaths. But there are a few men and women who see that if Earth doesn't wake up and pull together, the planet could be lost.

Oron didn’t want to rule Sehaann. But now he’s leading his nation to war for its very existence. He fights for his people’s safety, for a peaceful future, for freedom from the tyranny trying to eliminate him. Heritage has plagued his life and now that legacy hangs on the edge of oblivion. No matter how he got here, he can’t let it fall. Because failure means the end of everything he loves. Caught between obligation and duty, treachery and redemption, Sanjay is powerless to stop the machinations dragging him into war on the wrong side of the battlefield. He can’t fathom opposing his knightly brethren, but when he’s forced to face Oron from the enemy lines, all of his worst nightmares suddenly become reality. Destroy Oron and the knights of Sehaann, or sacrifice all he holds dear. Either choice means Sanjay loses. The persistent rage simmering in Kyren’s soul is now a demon threatening to consume him. Everywhere he turns, the consequences of his failure torment and remind him of how unworthy he is of his elite status. He’s a liability to those he’s sworn to protect and jeopardizes Oron’s battle plans at the worst possible moment. If he can’t control his seething vengeance, he’ll lose much more than his position. He’ll take the world down with him. All William wants is to protect his family. The ones he loves are worth everything to him so he extends his power beyond known limits to help Oron and his army succeed. What he achieves is beyond anyone’s expectation, but it’s more than even an immortal winged warrior can withstand. With godlike energy at his fingertips, he can alter reality to his whim. If he doesn’t obliterate it first. Overwhelmed and under siege, Taj can barely provide for his own community when refugees start arriving from around the country. As casualties mount, his leadership and therapeutic skills are stretched to the brink. But nothing prepares him for the horror of battle, where seconds mean the difference between life and death. Not even a gifted healer can save everyone. And sometimes, seconds are a luxury that no one can afford. In the ultimate battle for Sehaann’s survival, honor will be tested, loyalty will be shattered, sacrifices will be made, and no one will emerge unscathed. Everyone’s spent a lifetime giving all they have to fight for what they believe in. Now is when they find out if it’s enough. This work is intended for a mature audience and contains mature content.
