            We stand at a precipice - a point where the future is at stake. Humanity has come so far: ten thousand generations, each building on the work of their ancestors to reach the heights of culture and technology we see today. If we choose, we can continue this grand project, with eno...ugh time to end disease, poverty and injustice, and to fulfil our potential. But this future is at risk: for the first time, our power has grown so great that we have the ability to destroy ourselves. The Precipice is a clear-eyed look at the risks that we face, from the familiar, such as nuclear war and climate change, to the emerging, such as biotechnology and advanced artificial intelligence. It argues that ending these risks has become one of the most important moral issues of our time. What do we owe to the generations that follow us? This is an inspiring vision of human history, the legacy we will leave behind, and the steps we must take to work towards a brighter future.

            Learning to code has never been easier than with this innovative visual guide to computer programming for beginners. Coding skills are in high demand and the need for programmers is still growing. However, taking the first steps in learning more about this complex subject may see...m daunting and many of us feel left behind by the coding revolution. By using a graphic method to break code into small chunks, this book brings essential skills within reach. Terms such as algorithm, variable, string, function, and loop are all explained. The book also looks at the main coding languages that are out there, outlining the main applications of each language, so you can choose the right language for you. Individual chapters explore different languages, with practical programming projects to show you how programming works. You'll learn to think like a programmer by breaking a problem down into parts, before turning those parts into lines of code. Short, easy-to-follow steps then show you, piece by piece, how to build a complete program. There are challenges for you to tackle to build your confidence before moving on. Written by a team of expert coders and coding teachers, the Beginner's Step-by-Step Coding Course is the ideal way to get to grips with coding.

            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.
