My project is to create a series of ebooks about my favorite subjects in science: complexity, evolution, artificial intelligence, etc. And you know what? I have decided to put a lot of technology in that project. The idea is to use Artificial Intelligence inside an ebook to help people learn…
My first book will be on “How works a Computer”, because I realized that many people, even sometime junior programmers (!), don’t know how a microprocessor executes machine code, its basic principle, who invented it and when. In the ebook I have integrated a “lab” which is basically a simulator of a microprocessor. So people will be able not only to learn but also to experiment directly in the ebook!
At the end, instead of a classical quiz, you will find an intelligent conversational agent. You can chat with it for fun, but you can also try to answer questions about what you have learned and the agent will evaluate your level.
