Alan Turing had a radical and ingenious mind. He is considered one of the fathers of artificial intelligence, and his theories on this matter range from purely mechanical to almost spiritual. During World War II, his decryption of the Nazis’ Enigma codes proved vital for the Allied victory over the Axis powers. Turing’s fingerprints are everywhere, and yet his own country for quite some time failed to acknowledge it. It wasn’t until 2009 that the then prime minister of the United Kingdom, Gordon Brown, issued an official, posthumous apology to Alan Turing for ´´the appalling way he was treated.” To many, this was an admission that was far too long in coming. Inside you will read about:The death of his first loveTuring machinesBreaking the Nazis’ enigma codesConviction and chemical castrationThe poison appleAnd much more! As the chronicling of this book demonstrates, Alan Turing’s life was by no means easy; there were hardships, trials, and tribulations that would shake him to his core. But despite the tragic way his life ended by way of a poison apple, the spark ignited by Alan Turing’s short life is still something exceedingly brilliant to behold. 1. Language: English.

It is 1796 and a diminutive, Corsican-born French general has inherited a ragtag army and turned it into an unstoppable fighting force. Within months, Napoleon´s storm rolls across Italy and strikes a lethal blow against the Austrian empire. But while the soil of Piedmont and Tuscany runs with blood, another battle takes shape on the mysterious Adriatic Sea. Alan Lewrie and his 18-gun sloop, HMS Jester, part of a squadron of four British warships, sail into the thick of it. But with England´s alies failing, Napoleon busy rearranging the world map, and their squadron streched dangerously thin along the Croation coast, the British squadron commander strikes a devils bargain: enlisting the aid of Serbian pirates. 1.

Where do ´´rights´´ come from? Professor Alan Dershowitz provides an entirely new resolution to this age-old dilemma: rights, he argues, do not come from God, nature, logic, or law alone, but from particular experiences with injustice, and from trial and error. He also touches on the rights of prisoners and the situation in the Middle East. His new book is Rights from Wrongs. Professor Dershowitz speaks with Jeffrey Toobin, CNN legal analyst and New Yorker staff writer. This event took place on December 12, 2004. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jeffrey Toobin.

In his new book, Build for Change: Revolutionary Customer Engagement Through Continuous Digital Innovation, Alan Trefler discusses the divergence that is becoming more and more visible between successful leading companies and the not so successful companies. Trefler argues that consumers are becoming more empowered and are gaining the upper hand against big businesses that provide essential services for them. Trefler says that it is now up to companies to start determining the intent of the customer, and what keeps them coming back for more. To do this, companies must leave behind traditional management approaches and adopt a new system which looks at customers holistically. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dave Summers.
