"A much needed, sobering look at the seductive promises of new technologies. You couldn't ask for a better guide than Jack Stilgoe. His book is measured, fair and incisive." Hannah Fry, University College London, UK, and author of Hello World: How to be Human in the Age of the Machine "A cracking and insightful little book that thoughtfully examines the most important political and social question we face: how to define and meaningfully control the technologies that are starting to run our lives." Jamie Bartlett, author of The People vs Tech: How the Internet is Killing Democracy (and How We Save It) "Innovation has not only a rate but also a direction. Stilgoe's excellent new book tackles the directionality of AI with a strong call to action. The book critiques the idea that technology is a pre-determined force, and puts forward a concrete proposal on how to make sure we are making decisions along the way that ask who is benefitting and how can we open the possibilities of innovation while steering them to deliver social benefit." Mariana Mazzucato, University College London, UK, and author of The Value of Everything: Making and Taking in the Global Economy "Looking closely at the prospects and problems for 'autonomous vehicles,' Jack Stilgoe uncovers layer after layer of an even more fascinating story - the bizarre disconnect between technological means and basic human ends in our time. A tour de force of history and theory, the book is rich in substance, unsettling in its questions and great fun to read." Langdon Winner, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, USA Too often, we understand the effects of technological change only in hindsight. When technologies are new, it is not clear where they are taking us or who's driving. Innovators tend to accentuate the benefits rather than risks or other injustices. Technologies like self-driving cars are not as inevitable as the hype would suggest. If we want to realise the opportunities, spread the benefits to people who normally lose out and manage the risks, Silicon Valley's disruptive innovation is a bad model. Steering innovation in the public interest means finding new ways for public and private sector organisations to collaborate.

The new C++11 standard allows programmers to express ideas more clearly, simply, and directly, and to write faster, more efficient code. Bjarne Stroustrup, the designer and original implementer of C++, thoroughly covers the details of this language in his definitive reference, The C++ Programming Language, Fourth Edition. That reference is essential for anyone who truly wishes to master this language. In A Tour of C++, Stroustrup excerpts several early chapters from the complete reference, expanding and enhancing them to serve a different purpose: He aims to give an experienced programmer—in as short a time as possible—a clear idea of what constitutes modern C++. In this concise, self-contained guide, Stroustrup covers most major language features and the major standard-library components—not, of course, in the same depth as in his larger reference, but to a level that gives programmers a meaningful overview of the language, some key examples, and practical help in getting started. Stroustrup presents the most important C++ features in the context of the programming styles they support, such as object-oriented and generic programming. While not exhaustively detailed, his tour is still remarkably comprehensive. Coverage begins with the basics, then ranges widely through more advanced topics, including some that are important in the new C++, such as improved containers, random numbers, and concurrency. The tour ends with a discussion of C++ extensions and compatibility. This guide will not teach you how to program (see Stroustrup’s Programming: Principles and Practice Using C++ for that need); nor will it be the only resource you’ll require for C++ mastery (see Stroustrup’s The C++ Programming Language, Fourth Edition, for a start on that goal). If, however, you are a C or C++ programmer needing greater familiarity with the current C++ language, or a programmer versed in another language wishing to gain an accurate picture of the nature and benefits of C++, you can’t have a better introduction than this tour provides.

Buon Giorno Le Marche was inspired by a number of events that took place in 2011. After a 2010 tour to the Abruzzo region of Italy where my grandfather originates from, I performed a number of concerts in the summer of 2011 with Italian bassist Gabriele Pesaresi who originates from Le Marche. Gabriele is one of Italy&#8217;s greatest bass players and a most beautiful person. Gabriele can play in any musical context setting, which reflects his outstanding musicianship. The bass line was written with him in mind and for him. The melody was inspired by Italy&#8217;s rich operatic canzone history. The starting note (Ab) of the bass and melody reflects the rich tenor range of the voice. On the saxophone, the low Bb has a richness to it that invokes the whole body when playing it. As an artist for Rampone & Cazzani, I find the sound and richness of the low Bb to be unlike any other saxophone I have experienced, and believe Rampone & Cazzani saxophones reflect the true Italian voice. I was introduced to Claudio Zolla of Rampone & Cazzani in 2005 by my dear friend Dennis Tini (Wayne State University). Claudio Zolla and his wonderful family are dedicated to making some of the best hand-made saxophones in the world. The region of Le Marche is a fascinating area of Italy. Just north of Abruzzo and along the Adriatic, it is one of Italy&#8217;s best kept secrets when one thinks of the great treasures Italy has to offer. The piece has a melancholic feel to it that reflects the dual meaning of Buon Giorno, which in Italian can mean hello and goodbye. For my wife Diane and I, we were happy to see and experience this part of Italy, but also sad to leave. This piece is rich with harmonic challenges that support the melody which should be played in a relaxed and legato manner. The rhythm section can play in a floating manner off the bass line as an anchor with the drummer playing an &#8217;Elvin Jones&#8217; big three feel. Pay special attention to the dynamics as stated. The tutti/solo section is used as material for improvisation in addition to working well as a tutti line to play after the last solo. This piece is dedicated to my dear friends Gabriele Pesaresi and Claudio Zolla, and to the people of Le Marche, Italy. Buon Giorno Le Marche is part of an Italian Suite published by Advance Music that also includes Arrivo in Abruzzo and Scungilli. Instrumentation: 3 melody instruments, rhythm section

'Hello, I'm Stephen Fry. Now time for the first outing of a brand, spanking new feature here on The Incomplete and Utter History of Classical Music... putting some unsuspecting figure in music under the spotlight.' In his Incomplete & Utter History of Classical Music, Stephen Fry presents a potted and brilliantly rambling 700-year history of classical music and the world as we know it. Along this musical journey he casually throws in references to pretty much whatever takes his fancy, from the Mongol invasion of Russia and Mr Khan (Genghis to his friends), the founding of the MCC, the Black Death (which once again became the new black in England), to the heady revolutionary atmosphere of Mozart's Don Giovanni and the deep doo-doo that Louis XVI got into (or 'du-du' as the French would say). It's all here - Ambrose and early English plainsong, Bach, Mozart (beloved of mobile phones everywhere), Beethoven, Debussy, Wagner (the old romantic), right up to the present day. Entertaining and brilliantly written, this is a pretty reckless romp of a history through classical music and much much more.
It is often said that we are living in a new golden age of design. Our gadgets, appliances, and cars are sleeker and more elegant than they've ever been; in our free time, we trawl the internet for pictures of flawless minimalist interiors; and even the great industrialist of our time-Steve Jobs-is admired more for his visual savvy than his technological inventiveness. And yet with Instagram and Pinterest at our fingers and great design more available-and more affordable-than ever, we've had no guidebook to this ever-fascinating field. Though it's an inescapable part of our lives, there has been no single book that could, in one fell swoop, tell us everything we need to know about design. Enter Hello World . The design critic for the International Heard Tribune, Alice Rawsthorn has spent many years reckoning with the history of design and with its place in contemporary life, and Hello World is the extraordinary summation of her research and reporting. Rawsthorn takes us on a trip through design that ranges across continents and centuries, and wherever she goes, she discovers inspiring, thrilling examples of resourcefulness, inventiveness, and sheer vision. From the macabre symbol with which eighteenth-century pirates terrorized their victims into surrender, to one woman's quest for the best prosthetic legs, to the evolution of the World Cup soccer ball, Hello World describes how warlords, scientists, farmers, hackers, activists, and professional designers have used the complex, often elusive process of design to different ends throughout history. Hailed as a 'rapid-fire and illuminating ode to contemporary design' ( Telegraph ) and 'an extremely readable tour of the subject' ( Financial Times ), Hello World is a major work that radically broadens our understanding of what design can mean, and explains how we can use it to make sense of our ever-changing universe.
