A lot of talk about artificial intelligence and machine learning enhancement and potential. Between excitement and worry about artificial intelligence a lot of us forget about their natural ultimate computer. Artificial intelligence is almost all about mimicking the human brain and people should only worry about falling behind if they don’t utilize there natural brain.
In InademyComputing we started “The Ultimate Computer” Track to help those who would like to develop their skills in using their natural ultimate computer; The Human Brain.
Our first activity is a book club with the theme of “Problem solving, Creativity and Decision making”
Our next book is (Friday, May 25, 2018) “You are not your brain – The 4-step solution for changing bad habits, ending unhealthy thinking, and taking control of your life”
About the book:
A leading neuroplasticity researcher and the coauthor of the groundbreaking books Brain Lock and The Mind and the Brain, Jeffrey M. Schwartz has spent his career studying the structure and neuronal firing patterns of the human brain. He pioneered the first mindfulness-based treatment program for people suffering from OCD, teaching patients how to achieve long-term relief from their compulsions.
For the past six years, Schwartz has worked with psychiatrist Rebecca Gladding to refine a program that successfully explains how the brain works and why we often feel besieged by bad brain wiring. Just like with the compulsions of OCD patients, they discovered that bad habits, social anxieties, self-deprecating thoughts, and compulsive overindulgence are all rooted in overactive brain circuits. The key to making life changes that you want-to make your brain work for you-is to consciously choose to “starve” these circuits of focused attention, thereby decreasing their influence and strength.
As evidenced by the huge success of Schwartz’s previous books, as well as Daniel Amen’s Change Your Brain, Change Your Life, and Norman Doidge’s The Brain That Changes Itself, there is a large audience interested in harnessing the brain’s untapped potential, yearning for a step-by-step, scientifically grounded and clinically proven approach. In fact, readers of Brain Lock wrote to the authors in record numbers asking for such a book. In You Are Not Your Brain, Schwartz and Gladding carefully outline their program, showing readers how to identify negative brain impulses, channel them through the power of focused attention, and ultimately lead more fulfilling and empowered lives.
