Edna St. Vincent Millay, Dorothy Parker, Anita Loos, Lois Long, Jessie Fauset, Dawn Powell, Mary McCarthy, and others imagined New York as a place where they could claim professional status, define urban independence, and shrug off confining feminine roles. Their fiction raised questions about what it meant to be a woman in the public eye, how gender roles would change because men and women were working together, and how the growth of the magazine industry would affect women's relationships to their bodies and minds. Playing Smart celebrates their causes and careers and pays homage to their literary genius.

Amongst regular golfers of the same raw ability, some repeatedly out-perform others. These players consistently score better than the quality of their ball-striking, the accuracy of their short games and their putting skills. Why? These golfers are playing smart. They make better decisions and fewer mistakes than those with similar skills. They assess the challenge of each shot and reach sound conclusions. They prepare well and do everything possible to ensure a good outcome. They focus on reducing the number of shots per round. They use their minds to get ahead. Playing Smart explains what this means in practice. David Richards sets out the principles that smart golfers use to get an edge. He examines every area of the game: on the tee, from the fairway, in trouble, around the green, and on the putting surface. He shows how to analyse your play and single-out the non-swing related problems that repeatedly cost shots. He also discusses the key factors that contribute to accuracy and consistency, and explains how good preparation, ‘routine’, and a rational attitude all contribute to better and more enjoyable golf. Playing Smart offers something to players of every ability. All golfers will be able to see clearly how they measure up against a ‘smart golfer’. Better standard players can check where there is still room for improvement. And beginners should be able to put sound principles in place at an early stage.

A new vision of the future of games and game design, enabled by AI. Can games measure intelligence? How will artificial intelligence inform games of the future? In Playing Smart, Julian Togelius explores the connections between games and intelligence to offer a new vision of future games and game design. Video games already depend on AI. We use games to test AI algorithms, challenge our thinking, and better understand both natural and artificial intelligence. In the future, Togelius argues, game designers will be able to create smarter games that make us smarter in turn, applying advanced AI to help design games. In this book, he tells us how. Games are the past, present, and future of artificial intelligence. In 1948, Alan Turing, one of the founding fathers of computer science and artificial intelligence, handwrote a program for chess. Today we have IBM's Deep Blue and DeepMind's AlphaGo, and huge efforts go into developing AI that can play such arcade games as Pac-Man. Programmers continue to use games to test and develop AI, creating new benchmarks for AI while also challenging human assumptions and cognitive abilities. Game design is at heart a cognitive science, Togelius reminds us—when we play or design a game, we plan, think spatially, make predictions, move, and assess ourselves and our performance. By studying how we play and design games, Togelius writes, we can better understand how humans and machines think. AI can do more for game design than providing a skillful opponent. We can harness it to build game-playing and game-designing AI agents, enabling a new generation of AI-augmented games. With AI, we can explore new frontiers in learning and play.
