            The long-held dream of artificial intelligence researchers is to build machines that are conscious and self-aware - the dream of creating life itself. While this remains a remote prospect, the AI floodgates have opened, and they are changing our world fundamentally. Yet the publi...c debate and media hype is still largely centred on elusive prospects such as sentient machines and dystopian robot takeovers. In this lively and clear-headed guide, Michael Wooldridge changes the narrative on AI, revealing how these anxieties distract us from the more realistic risks that this transformative technology poses, from algorithmic bias to fake news. He also shows us how they overlook the true life-changing potential of the field he loves. Instead, The Road to Conscious Machines gives us the real story of AI, through all its booms and busts, elucidating the discoveries of its greatest pioneers from Alan Turing to Demis Hassabis. It shows us what today's AI researchers actually think and do, and how they are ushering in a new era of real-time spoken word language translation, augmented reality tools, healthcare innovations and much more.

            Do you know what your clothes say about you? What we wear is a visual expression of our inner selves. Our clothes affect how we feel about ourselves and how people see us. How you dress matters. In Dress Your Best Life, fashion psychologist Dawnn Karen reveals why we choose the c...lothes we do and explains how to dress to match or lift your mood. As a qualified therapist, designer, fashion PR and former model, Karen understands better than anyone the intimate relationship between what you wear and how you feel. From clients like Paul who want to revive his tired office wardrobe but keep going back to the same khaki trousers and light yellow shirt (his old school uniform) to Lindsey, whose 'mum uniform' of yoga pants and a baggy t-shirt eclipsed her sense of style when she became a first-time mum, Karen helps people overcome their wardrobe hang-ups. Drawing on cutting edge research and real-life case studies, Karen shows you how to harness the power of clothes to change your life. The book will teach you how to: - match or lift your mood with your clothes - reduce anxiety through colour choices - maintain your cultural identity - project power at home and work Enter the world of fashion psychology and Karen will help take your look - and your life - to the next level. Dawnn Karen is a pioneer in the Fashion Psychology Field. She holds a master's degree in counselling psychology from Columbia University's Teaching College and she is a qualified therapist. She is a former model and fashion public relations representative and designer.

            Be ambitious; find everlasting love; look after your health ... There are countless stories about how we ought to live our lives. These narratives can make our lives easier, and they might sometimes make us happier too. But they can also trap us and those around us. In Happy Ever... After, bestselling happiness expert Professor Paul Dolan draws on a wealth of evidence to bust the common myths about our sources of happiness and shows that there can be many unexpected paths to lasting happiness. Some of these might involve not going into higher education, choosing not to marry, rewarding acts rooted in self-interest and caring a little less about living forever. By freeing ourselves from the myth of the perfect life, we might each find a life worth living.

            Positive psychology is currently equated with theory and research on the positive aspects of life. The reality could not be further from the truth. Positive psychology investigates and researches some of the most difficult and painful experiences. Second Wave Positive Psychology:... Embracing the Dark Side of Life is an innovative and groundbreaking textbook that explores a variety of topics we consider to be part of the 'dark' side of life while emphasising their role in our positive functioning and transformation as human beings. This more nuanced approach to the notions of 'positive' and 'negative' can be described as the 'second wave' of Positive Psychology. Positive Psychology is one of the fastest growing and least understood branches of psychology. Exploring topics at the heart of Positive Psychology, such as meaning, resilience, human development, mortality, change, suffering, and spirituality, this book engages with so-called 'negative' matters from a Positive Psychology angle, showing how the path of personal development can involve experiences which, while challenging, can lead to growth, insight, healing and transformation. Containing useful resources, case studies, practical exercises and chapter summaries, Second Wave Positive Psychology is an essential guide for undergraduate and postgraduate students studying positive psychology, as well as clinicians wanting to know more about the subject. It will also be relevant to the layperson who is interested in positive psychology.

            Kai is different. Kai, the doctors will eventually realize, is autistic. Of course, like everyone on the spectrum, Kai isn't just autistic - he's so much more than that. Kai is Kai. Doctors used to find one case of autism among every five thousand people. Today, according to a st...udy by the US Department of Health and Human Services, the ratio is one in fifty-eight. Scientists speak of an epidemic. Kai may be different, but he is not alone. Henry, Kai's father, is one of the world's most famous neuroscientists, the man behind the billion dollar Blue Brain Project to build a supercomputer model of the human brain. Nevertheless, when his son began withdrawing, Henry was as helpless as all the other parents. He asked himself the same questions they did: What is autism? How can I help my child? He researched for fifteen years. His findings would upend everything we thought we knew about autism. They would offer us a whole new vantage from which to consider all disorders of the mind. If Henry had just been a scientist, even a great one, he would have failed. He only succeeded thanks to Kai, the boy who changed everything.
