Alan French: Summer Island

Beautifully illustrated by artist Dave Windett. A fairy tale for the citizens of tomorrow. A fact-book at the end of the story explains the lives and problems of Mediterranean refugees in an easy to understand way.

Beautifully illustrated by artist Dave Windett. Thrilling and educational. A fact-book at the end of the story explains the rainforest and global warming in an easy to understand way.

Dr. Andreas Matthias: Neural Networks Without the Math

A joyful introduction

"This is probably the best nontechnical intro to neural networks I've seen. Even technical people can find it useful. Good job." -- Amazon review

More and more, artificial intelligence is taking over our lives.

Voice-controlled assistants like Alexa and Siri, Amazon’s recommendation engine, Google’s search, self-driving cars, autonomous robots, and computers that diagnose diseases better than your doctor: they are all here already, whether we like it or not.

As users and as citizens, we need to keep up.

This book will empower you to understand this new world, and to make your own decisions.

From a recognized expert in robot ethics. For students, humanities researchers, and the general public.

The aim of life is to live, and to live means to be aware, joyously, drunkenly, serenely, divinely aware. — Henry Miller
