Brian Christian - 2020-10-06
Goodreads Rating
A jaw-dropping exploration of everything that goes wrong when we build AI systems and the movement to fix them. Today’s "machine-learning" systems, trained by data, are so effective that we’ve invited them to see and hear for us?and to make decisions on our behalf. But alarm bells are ringing. Recent years have seen an eruption of concern as the fi...

This book addresses the topic of software design: how to decompose complex software systems into modules (such as classes and methods) that can be implemented relatively independently.

Tackling Complexity in the Heart of Software
Eric Evans - 2003-08-29
Goodreads Rating
"Eric Evans has written a fantastic book on how you can make the design of your software match your mental model of the problem domain you are addressing. "His book is very compatible with XP. It is not about drawing pictures of a domain; it is about how you think of it, the language you use to talk about it, and how you organize your software to r...

I absolutely love this book. I was surprised, in my research, to find a very early use of the phrase "domain-driven design" in a paper from 2003 by Bedir Tekinerdogan and Mehmet Aksit from @utwenteEN      source

What Happens After They're Built
Stewart Brand - 1995-09-30 (first published in 1994)
Goodreads Rating
Buildings have often been studied whole in space, but never before have they been studied whole in time. How Buildings Learn is a masterful new synthesis that proposes that buildings adapt best when constantly refined and reshaped by their occupants, and that architects can mature from being artists of space to becoming artists of time. From the co...
