Machine Intelligence is changing every aspect of our lives. Internet traffic and sensors in households, cars, and wearables provide data that oligopolistic companies collect and use to extract patterns of human behavior. Further, active digital assistants are taking over more and more of our everyday decisions. Humanity is on the verge of an evolutionary leap and it is time to determine if this development will benefit people’s wellbeing or will just mean the accumulation of capital and power with no regard for quality of life. This book integrates the perspectives of various disciplines that are striving to establish resilient foundations – computer science, economics and social sciences, political science, psychology, philosophy, neuroscience, ethics and religion – in order to clarify a number of positions and, as a result, objectify the discussions. Written by Hubert Osterle, a researcher working at the interface of these disciplines, the book promotes debate on the future of man and machine, on happiness and evolution and on the major changes brought about by digital technology. Last but not least, it is a manifesto calling for a new – integrated – discipline to be founded: life engineering.

This edited book offers further advances, new perspectives, and developments from world leaders in the field of through-life engineering services (TES). It builds up on the earlier book by the same authors entitled: “Through-life Engineering Services: Motivation, Theory and Practice.” This compendium introduces and discusses further, the developments in workshop-based and 'in situ' maintenance and support of high-value engineering products, as well as the application of drone technology for autonomous and self-healing product support. The links between ‘integrated planning’ and planned obsolescence, risk and cost modelling are also examined. The role of data, information, and knowledge management relative to component and system degradation and failure is also presented. This is supported by consideration of the effects upon the maintenance and support decision by the presence of 'No Fault Found' error signals within system data. Further to this the role of diagnostics and prognostics is also discussed. In addition, this text presents the fundamental information required to deliver an effective TES solution/strategy and identification of core technologies. The book contains reference and discussion relative to automotive. rail, and several other industrial case studies to highlight the potential of TES to redefine the product creation and development process. Additionally the role of warranty and service data in the product creation and delivery system is also introduced. This book offers a valuable reference resource for academics, practitioners and students of TES and the associated supporting technologies and business models that underpin whole-life product creation and delivery systems through the harvesting and application of condition and use based data.

Demonstrating the latest research and analysis in the area of through-life engineering services (TES), this book utilizes case studies and expert analysis from an international array of practitioners and researchers – who together represent multiple manufacturing sectors: aerospace, railway and automotive – to maximize reader insights into the field of through-life engineering services. As part of the EPSRC Centre in Through-life Engineering Services program to support the academic and industrial community, this book presents an overview of non-destructive testing techniques and applications and provides the reader with the information needed to assess degradation and possible automation of through-life engineering service activities . The latest developments in maintenance-repair-overhaul (MRO) are presented with emphasis on cleaning technologies, repair and overhaul approaches and planning and digital assistance. The impact of these technologies on sustainable enterprises is also analyzed. This book will help to support the existing TES community and will provide future studies with a strong base from which to analyze and apply techn9olgical trends to real world examples.
The Rhythms of Life: Engineering Your Own Change to Reach Your Fullest
Potential MY SOMEWHAT MESSY, CHALLENGING JOURNEY TO PURPOSE,
AND ACHIEVEMENT An inspirational non-fiction narrative by Dr. Theo Tackie
Publisher: Dr. Theo Tackie
Have you found the rhythms of your life yet? Can you say that the elements that influence your life are all aligned to help you reach your life’s fullest potential in this life? If you were to take fear out of your life, what will it look like? These shocking and provocative questions are at the core of this remarkable and inspiring book, One Last Talk: Why do you need to engineer your own change to achieve your desired goals in life? This book emerged from the challenging journey of the author on the pursuit of higher academic height, life experience, and purpose. Success is active and not passive, so nothing should be left to chance. Wake up, lock-it-in, and start grinding. In this book, Theo goes beyond the events and dives into what it means to discover yourself and meet head-on the challenges on the road to achieving your potential, why people must have a good relationship with fear, and then simply explains exactly how this can be done. If you feel living more authentically could give you fulfillment and will allow you to have a greater impact on others, or it will stop you from holding back because of the fear, failure, judgment, and control, this is the book for you. Make no mistake, the path Theo lays out is simple, but not easy, because your greatest gift lies next to your deepest wounds. nobody attains greatness by accident, and NO it will not be given to you. Wake up and begin to grind towards your goals. It Always Seems Impossible Until It’s Done. - Nelson Mandela –

This is an incredible biography of a Canadian-born aeronautical engineer who has worked at every major aircraft company and the National Research Council in Canada for the past 50 years. It includes helping Jacqueline Cochran break the sound barrier and establish a number of world airspeed records in 1953. General Chuck Yeager, her good friend, helped her in the air, and Lewis helped her on the ground by providing her with a Canadian F 86 Sabre 3 powered with a special Orenda engine for her record attempts. Of interest to all Canadians is that the production version of the Canadian F 86 Sabre 3 became the best jet fighter in the world in the 1950s and 1960s. The author’s last aeronautical career move was joining Pratt & Whitney Canada, where he played a key role as the company became the world leader in design and development of small turbine engines. He accomplished this by successfully negotiating with the Federal Government for hundreds of millions of dollars in repayable loans to design and develop new jet engines. The biography also includes Lewis’ remarkable humanitarian work. It started with his joining a local Lions Club in 1961, and it progressed to building two new hospitals in Montreal for the Chinese community. In his retirement in Ottawa since 1989 he has been with the University of Ottawa Heart Institute, initially to assist with the design of a new artificial heart and then later to negotiate with provincial and federal governments for financial assistance to develop the artificial heart.
