            How to Speak Machine: Laws of Design for a Digital Age

            John Maeda is one of the world's preeminent thinkers on technology and design, and in How to Speak Machine, he offers a set of simple laws that govern not only the computers of today, but the unimaginable machines of the future. Machines are already more powerful than we can comp...rehend, and getting more powerful at an exponential pace. Once set in motion, algorithms never tire. And when a program's size, speed and endlessness combine with its ability to learn and transform itself, the outcome can be unpredictable and dangerous. Take the seemingly instant transformation of Microsoft's chatbot into a hate-spewing racist, or how crime-predicting algorithms reinforce racial bias. How To Speak Machine provides a coherent framework for today's product designers, business leaders and policymakers to grasp this brave new world. Drawing on his wide-ranging experience from engineering to computer science to design, Maeda shows how businesses and individuals can identify opportunities afforded by technology to make world-changing and inclusive products while avoiding the pitfalls inherent to the medium.

            A hands-on introduction to ethical hacking for a younger audience. The purpose of ethical hacking is to evaluate the security of computer systems, networks, or system infrastructure and to determine whether unauthorized access or other malicious activities are possible. Hacking f...or Kids is for the beginner who wants to start exploring ethical hacking in this virtual hacking laboratory. Ethical hacking is the art of evaluating the security of computer systems, networks, or system infrastructure to find holes or vulnerabilities and to determine whether unauthorized access or other malicious activities are possible. The book begins with an introduction to ethical hacking concepts and then demonstrates hands-on the steps necessary to execute specific attacks. Early attacks covered in the book are simple and engaging; designed to give readers the skills necessary to tackle more advanced exploits. The book's emphasis on ethical or white hat hacking demonstrates the importance of balancing security against convenience; in other words, sometimes it can be hard to stay safe on a computer. Readers learn how to avoid phishing, viruses, and ransomware as well as how attackers steal passwords on saved websites or gain access to a computer and its files without a username or password.
