              How to Speak Machine: Laws of Design for a Digital Age (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              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.

              The arrival of the Internet was revolutionary, and one of the most tumultuous developments that flowed from it--the upending of the relatively settled world of copyright law--has forced us to rethink how rights to a work are allocated and how delivery formats affect an originator...'s claims to the work.

              The 1877 legal case Wi Parata v Bishop of Wellington centred on the ownership and use of the Whitireia Block, near Porirua. In refusing to inquire into ownership of the block, the Supreme Court judges dismissed the relevance of the Treaty of Waitangi: So far indeed as that instru...ment purported to cede the sovereignty - a matter with which we are not directly concerned - it must be regarded as a simple nullity. Over the past 25 years, this simple nullity view of the Treaty has been castigated and the infamous case seen as symbolic of the neglect of Maori rights. Now, David V Williams takes a fresh look at the case, affording new insights into both Maori-Pakeha relations in the nineteenth century and the legal position of the Treaty. Behind the apparent dismissal of the Treaty as a simple nullity lay deep arguments about the place of Maori and Pakeha in Aotearoa New Zealand, which are as relevant now as they were then.

              The official TV tie-in edition of Defending the Guilty 'Terrific, fascinating, very funny' Daily Mail 'Hilarious' Sun 'Gripping' Literary Review How do we ensure that the guilty are convicted and the innocent walk free? Shortlisted for the Crime Writers Award Gold Dagger for Non-...Fiction, true crime meets humour in Defending the Guilty, a hilariously funny and eye-opening expose of the criminal justice system. Every day, criminal barrister Alex McBride stands up in court and attempts to save people from conviction, prison, even a lifetime behind bars. Sometimes it's a hopeless case. Sometimes he has the chance to right a wrong. But mostly his clients are just plain guilty. In Defending the Guilty, McBride takes us behind the scenes of Britain's criminal justice system. He introduces us to its extraordinary characters and arcane eccentricities, and tells astonishing stories of courtroom triumph and defeat. Whether he's defending hapless teenagers at Harlow Youth Court or prosecuting gold bullion robbers at the Old Bailey, these hair-raising tales reveal that justice rarely operates in quite the way we expect. 'Expert, authoritative, hilarious - an insider's fearless account of life at the criminal bar' Craig Raine, Times Literary Supplement, Books of the Year 'McBride details his own cock-ups and disasters with the relish of the born humorous writer. Very funny' Daily Mail 'Rollicks along with a good eye for detail and a neat turn of phrase' Observer 'Gripping, engaging, compelling. The real life of criminal barristers is expertly caught' Literary Review Alex McBride is a criminal barrister. He is the author of the 'Common Law' column in Prospect magazine, has contributed to the New Statesman and various BBC programmes, including From Our Own Correspondent and is the editor of the Famous Trials Penguin Specials series.
