            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.

            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.

            As with the previous two editions, Learning Blender, 3/e will cover the creation of a full project - an animated character composed in a real live video. The approach will be the following: Part 1: Introduction to Blender. Learning the basics, the interface, controls, interacting... with and editing objects, take a look to the main areas of the Software. Basically understand how it works with simple exercises, so in next chapters there is no need to go back to the basics again (that won't interrupt advanced users who come from other software and don't need to be reminded about the basics). Part 2: This is the central part of the book, and it will go through the whole project. Each chapter will have two parts: a) Introduction: easy exercise to show what's needed for completing the chapter and why it is done that way or the technology behind it. b) Exercise: the complete part of the project that will be done in this chapter. This way, people new to 3D will be able to understand what's going on and why they need to do what they'll do, while experienced people can jump to the exercise itself, as they already probably know the basics from other software.
