“我今年的假期阅读清单上有两本很棒的科幻小说,都引发我思考一个共同的问题,即人们如何利用科技来应对挑战。我的清单上还有两本关于前沿科学的非小说类书籍,以及一本让我重新审视一位历史上最著名人物(莎士比亚)的小说。”

“When I was a kid, I was obsessed with science fiction.As I got older, I started reading a lot more non-fiction. I was still interested in books that explored the implications of innovation, but it felt more important to learn something about our real world along the way. Lately, though, I’ve found myself drawn back to the kinds of books I would’ve loved as a kid.

I read a lot of great books this year—including John Doerr’s latest about climate change—but these were some of my favorites.”

如果你希望充实自己的阅读计划

可以从中找到值得一读的作品哦!

《哈姆内特》

作者

Maggie O'Farrell | 玛吉奥法雷尔

比尔·盖茨书评

“If you’re a Shakespeare fan, you’ll love this moving novel about how his personal life might’ve influenced the writing of one of his most famous plays. O’Farrell has built her story on two facts we know to be true about “The Bard”: his son Hamnet died at the age of 11, and a couple years later, Shakespeare wrote a tragedy called Hamlet. I especially enjoyed reading about his wife, Anne, who is imagined here as an almost supernatural figure.”

“如果你是莎士比亚的粉丝,那么你会喜欢这部感人的小说,该书讲述了莎士比亚的个人生活如何影响他最著名的一部戏剧的创作。”(部分翻译)

 

02A Thousand Brains: A New Theory of Intelligence

《千脑筋:一种新的智能理论》

作者

Jeff Hawkins | 杰夫·霍金斯

比尔·盖茨书评

“Few subjects have captured the imaginations of science fiction writers like artificial intelligence. If you’re interested in learning more about what it might take to create a true AI, this book offers a fascinating theory. Hawkins may be best known as the co-inventor of the PalmPilot, but he’s spent decades thinking about the connections between neuroscience and machine learning, and there’s no better introduction to his thinking than this book..”

“很少有主题能像人工智能一样吸引科幻作家的想象力。如果你有兴趣进一步了解创造一个真正的人工智能可能需要什么,那么这本书提供了一个引人入胜的理论视角。”(部分翻译)

 

03The Code Breaker: Jennifer Doudna, Gene Editing, 

and the Future of the Human Race

《密码破译者:珍妮弗·道德纳,基因编辑及人类未来》

作者

Walter Isaacson | 沃尔特·艾萨克森

比尔·盖茨书评

“The CRISPR gene editing system is one of the coolest and perhaps most consequential scientific breakthroughs of the last decade. I’m familiar with it because of my work at the foundation—we’re funding a number of projects that use the technology—but I still learned a lot from this comprehensive and accessible book about its discovery by Nobel Prize-winning biochemist Jennifer Doudna and her colleagues. Isaacson does a good job highlighting the most important ethical questions around gene editing..”

“该书讲述了诺贝尔奖得主、生物化学家珍妮弗·道德纳和她的同事探索这项CRISPR基因编辑工具的历程。”(部分翻译)

 

04Klara and the Sun

作者

Kazuo Ishiguro | 石黑一雄

比尔·盖茨书评

“I love a good robot story, and Ishiguro’s novel about an “artificial friend” to a sick young girl is no exception. Although it takes place in a dystopian future, the robots aren’t a force for evil. Instead, they serve as companions to keep people company. This book made me think about what life with super intelligent robots might look like—and whether we’ll treat these kinds of machines as pieces of technology or as something more.”

“这本书让我思考拥有超级智能机器人的生活将会是什么样子——我们会将这种机器视为一项技术,还是将其视为更重要的东西。”(部分翻译)

 

05Project Hail Mary

《挽救计划》

作者

Andy Weir | 安迪·威尔

比尔·盖茨书评

“Like most people, I was first introduced to Weir’s writing through The Martian. His latest novel is a wild tale about a high school science teacher who wakes up in a different star system with no memory of how he got there. The rest of the story is all about how he uses science and engineering to save the day. It’s a fun read, and I finished the whole thing in one weekend.”

“我是通过《火星救援》第一次接触到威尔的作品。这本书很有趣,我一个周末就读完了整本书。”(部分翻译)
