            In his sophomore year of college, Mark Zuckerberg created a simple website to serve as a campus social network. But the site caught on like wildfire, and soon students nationwide were on Facebook. Today, Facebook is nearly unrecognizable from Zuckerberg's first, modest iteration.... It has grown into a tech giant, the largest social media platform and one of the most gargantuan companies in the world with over 2.23 billion global users. Love it or hate it, there is no denying the power and omnipresence of Facebook in daily life. And in light of growing scandals surrounding election-influencing 'fake news' accounts, the mining of its users' personal data, and growing discontent with the actions of its founder and CEO, never has the company been more central to the international conversation.

            What does a museum do, and who is a museum for, in these times of historically low public trust in institutions and uncertainty precipitated by rapidly evolving technological, political, economic, and social contexts? Providing an examination of the complex interplay between the ...museum, digital technologies, and the dynamic external pressures shaping and transforming the institutional context, The Digital Future of Museums argues that museums today can neither ignore the importance of digital technologies when engaging their communities, nor fail to address the broader social, economic, and cultural changes that shape their digital offerings. Drawing on moderated conversations with well-respected and influential museum practitioners, thinkers and experts in related fields around the globe, this book explores the role of digital technology in contemporary museum practice within Europe, the USA, Australasia and Asia. With conversations organised around three key themes, this book will present a mix of ideas, practices,a strategies and reflections upon successful, and failed, projects and approaches grounded in cutting-edge contemporary practice that will help prepare today's museums for tomorrow. Culminating in a set of competing possible visions for the future of the museum sector and accompanied by videos and a podcast series, The Digital Future of Museums should be essential reading for museum studies students and those who teach or write about the museum sector. It should also be of great interest to those who work in, for, and with museums, as well as practitioners working in galleries, archives and libraries.

            We are entering an empathy crisis. So much of our communication is conveyed through non-verbal cues - facial expressions, tone of voice, body language - nuances that are completely lost when we interact through our smartphones and other technology. The result is a digital univers...e that's emotion-blind - a society lacking in empathy. Rana al Kaloubi discovered this when she left Cairo, a newly-married, Muslim woman, to take up her place at Cambridge University to study computer science. Many thousands of miles from home, she began to develop systems to help her better connect with her family. She started to pioneer the new field of Emotional Intelligence (EI). She now runs her company, Affectiva (the industry-leader in this emerging field) that builds EI into our technology and develops systems that understand humans the way we understand one another. In a captivating memoir, Girl Decoded chronicles el Kaliouby's mission to humanise technology and what she learns about humanity along the way.
