              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.

              You might be wondering why some of your friends speak in hushed tones about soldering wires, chips, and robotic parts carrying strange, unheard-of names. Fear not, since you probably own hardware ready-made for your own robotics experiments: any old Android phone gives you a head... start in building your own robot. And Android Robotics Projects will show you how to build serious robots. To begin either development and hardware engineering on the Android, you need to have programming access to your phone. So, you will need to install Eclipse and use Bluetooth to access Android hardware itself. But if you want to build a robot using the Android processor as its brain, you need to penetrate the mysteries of another Microcontroller interfacing with Android: the AVR. Jim Garvin leads you through the early chapters of the book as gently as possible. From here Garvin takes through all the knowledge areas needed to build robots, including movable parts, communications between Android hardware, and Android and Linux APIs for programming. To top it off, you'll explore how to produce your own hardware! From the bread board, to your home-brew PCB, Garvin guides you through design and implementation of your robot parts. No robot can exist without sensors, and you need constraints to get it to avoid and circumvent obstacles. There is little that one cannot do with the right hardware and a bit of programmming. Ultimately, you can mount your phone on the robot, and teach it new tricks, depending on the animal architecture you choose. Of course there are many possibilities here, and Garvin will also give you pointers for the future. What you'll learn Setting up a development environment ready for Android robotics code Learning how to program for the AVR microcontroller Connecting servos and sensors Home-brewing your own PCB design, and choosing PCB suppliers Mounting the phone as a robot brain and teaching the robot to obey touch commands Approaching and designing different robot arch
