I'm doing a talk and book launch event in Central London on the 11th of October Tuesday 7pm at the October Gallery, the Club Room, 24 Old Gloucester St, London, WC1N 3AL

It will be live streamed using Facebook's facility so you'll be able to tune in on the Internet wherever you are. Find me on Facebook by typing 'Wai H. Tsang' and friend me or follow.

I'll be talking about the latest developments with the Fractal Brain Theory, especially in relation to AI, the Technological Singularity and an ancient idea known as the Perfect or Universal Language. But I'll be covering a lot more besides.

The overall theme of the talk is Apocalypse in every sense of the word, but most of all in its literally meaning i.e. Greek for 'the unveiling of the hidden thing'. So an apocalypse of ideas meets the so called 'apocalypse for nerds' (i.e. AI the Technological Singularity), meets an unveiling of the hidden or esoteric religion in the form of the Perfect or Universal Language, meets the apocalypse of William Blake, and also the apocalypse in the darker sense of the expression, that is in relation to the idea of global ecological and environmental collapse, also in conjunction with the pieces of the world geopolitical chess board seeming to line up for a wider conflict and perhaps even World War III, in and around Syria. All these apocalypses are completely intertwined and interrelated to one another, it will be made very clear in the presentation.

If anyone knows people working at Google DeepMind then tell them to come along and bring Demis. The venue is only 10 minutes walk from DeepMind HQ. The talk and the book is about the future of their industry and they'll find it most relevant.

The book is available to buy now online at this link:
http://www.lulu.com/shop/wai-tsang/the-fractal-brain-theory/paperback/product-22822871.html

Or to get a signed copy paypal me in Pounds Sterling at wai.tsang69@gmail.com with your full postal address, for UK buyers the total will be £30, USA buyers total will be £39, EU europe total £35. Other locations please email me for the total cost.

Last year's release, 'Quest' is now available on Amazon.com in both print and kindle ebook format. Type 'Quest Tsang' to find it. The new book will not be coming out in ebook format.

Copies of the new book will be on sale and there'll also be a couple of copies to give away for free, I'll organise a raffle or something like that.

The Fractal Brain Theory book is finished and available to order. Here is a selection of diagrams taken from it, there are over 130.

It's 530 pages long, so is quite a big book. I was going to write three separate books, one on the brain and mind, the other two on genomics/evolution and artificial intelligence; but I've ended combining all three books into a single volume.

I've mainly avoided using mathematical formulas to make things as accessible as possible, and have strived to make things easy to understand, so as a result the book contains tons of new diagrams. The difficulty level overall is that of a popular science book, if you can follow my lectures then you won't have too many problems understanding the new concepts. And there are lots of new ideas contained in this book, the Fractal Brain Theory has really progressed in the past couple of years. It has essentially become a unified theory of brain, mind, genomics, ontogenesis, evolution, artificial intelligence, linguistics. discrete mathematics and formal axiomatic systems.

It's a fair size book and quite weighty, so unfortunately airmail costs are quite high. The brexit drop in pound sterling makes the book cheaper, but overseas postal costs have become more expensive. Cost of postage for UK first class is £4.45, USA airmail is £13, Europe is £8.30 and Australia is £18! For postage price of your locale see http://www.royalmail.com/price-finder, enter small parcel and weight 0.88 kg.

Because airmail cost is so high it might be better to use the print on demand option by visiting this link,

http://www.lulu.com/shop/wai-tsang/the-fractal-brain-theory/paperback/product-22822871.html

it's exactly the same product except it'll be printed more locally, including in the US and Australia. You'll save a lot on postage cost and get the book in the same time it takes to airmail, but it won't be a signed copy which will have to come direct from me. Also they process credit cards which I don't.

To buy from a signed copy paypal me in Pounds Sterling at wai.tsang69@gmail.com with your full postal address, for UK buyers the total will be £30, USA buyers total will be £39, EU europe total £35 and for Australia I'll accept £40. For other locations use postal cost link above, and add £26 to the figure it returns, if you're not sure email me your paypal email address and I'll send you a paypal invoice.

The Fractal Brain Theory book is finished! I've got the first few proof copies back from the printer and it looks great, Will take delivery of first print run early next week.

It's 530 pages long, so is quite a big book. I was going to write three separate books, one on the brain and mind, the other two on genomics/evolution and artificial intelligence; but I've ended combining all three books into a single volume. As a result it's taken far longer than intended, but is a lot more extensive and covers a lot of ground.

The main subject of the book is of course the brain and mind, but there is a very big idea contained within it, which is that the genome and DNA works exactly as a tiny fractal brain during ontogenesis, i.e. control of biological development, and also evolutionary processes work exactly as learning and creativity in the brain. A lot of existing ideas are brought together into a single unified theory, which leads to a powerful new way of looking at AI and doing whole brain emulation.The last 80 pages focus exclusively on AI, but in a sense the entire book is about AI because all the way through the brain, mind, genome, ontogenesis and evolution, is interpreted in information processing terms. The book contains answers to some of the major AI problems which have remained intractable for decades. If you're working in AI or machine learning you'll get a lot from the long final chapter.

I've mainly avoided using mathematical formulas to make things as accessible as possible, and have strived to make things easy to understand, so as a result the book contains tons of new diagrams, over 130, which communicate a lot of things in a direct, easy to grasp and visual way. The difficulty level overall is that of a popular science book, if you can follow my lectures then you won't have too many problems understanding the new concepts. And there are lots of new ideas contained in this book, the Fractal Brain Theory has really progressed in the past couple of years. It has essentially become a unified theory of brain, mind, genomics, ontogenesis, evolution, artificial intelligence, linguistics. discrete mathematics and formal axiomatic systems.
