            Have you ever asked yourself how the inventions, gadgets, and devices that surround us actually work? Discover the hidden workings of everyday technology with this graphic guide. How Technology Works demystifies the machinery that keeps the modern world going, from simple objects... such as zip fasteners and can openers to the latest, most sophisticated devices of the information age, including smart watches, personal digital assistants, and driverless cars. It includes inventions that have changed the course of history, like the internal combustion engine, as well as technologies that might hold the key to our future survival, including solar cells and new kinds of farming to feed a growing population. All the way through the book, step-by-step explanations are supported by simple and original graphics that take devices apart and show you how they work. The opening chapter explains principles that underpin lots of devices - from basic mechanics to electricity to digital technology. From there on, devices are grouped by application - such as the home, transport, and computing - making them easy to find and placing similar devices side by side. How Technology Works is perfect for anyone who didn't have a training in STEM subjects at school or is simply curious about how the modern world works.

            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.

            A true story of innovation, centered on a scrappy team of engineers--far from the Silicon Valley limelight--and their quest to achieve a surprisingly difficult technological feat: building a robot that can lay bricks. Humans have landed men on the moon, programmed cars to drive t...hemselves, and put the knowledge of our entire civilization in your back pocket. But no one--from MIT nerds to Army Corps engineers--has ever built a robot that can lay bricks as well as a mason. Unlike the controlled conditions of a factory line, where robots are now ubiquitous, no two construction sites are alike, and a day's work involves countless variables--bricks that range in size and quality, temperamental mortar mixes, uneven terrain, fickle weather, and moody foremen. Twenty-five years ago, on a challenging construction job in Syracuse, architect Nate Podkaminer had a vision of a future full of efficient, automated machines that freed men from the repetitive, toilsome burden of laying bricks. (Bricklayers lift the equivalent of a Ford truck every few days.) Offhandedly, he mentioned the idea to his daughter's boyfriend, and after some inspired scheming, the architect and engineer--soon to be in-laws--cofounded a humble startup called Construction Robotics. Working out of a small trailer, they recruited a boldly unconventional team of engineers to build the Semi-Automated Mason: SAM. In classic American tradition, a small, unlikely, and eccentric family-run startup sought to reimagine the behemoth $10 billion construction industry--the second biggest industry in America--in bootstrap fashion. In the tradition of Tracy Kidder's The Soul of a New Machine, SAM unfolds as an engineering drama, full of trials and setbacks, heated showdowns between meticulous scientists and brash bricklayers (and their even more opinionated union), and hard-earned milestone achievements. Jonathan Waldman, acclaimed author of Rust, brings readers inside the world of the renegade company revolutionizing the
