(P/B) JOURNEY TO THE EAST
EDITED, ANNOTATED, TRANSLATED AND WITH A NEW PREFACE BY IVAN ZAKNIC
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0160

This is the legendary travel diary that the twenty-four-year-old Charles-Edouard Jeanneret (Le Corbusier) kept during his formative journey through Southern, Central, and Eastern Europe in 1911. In a flood of highly personal impressions and visual notations, it records his first contact with the vernacular architecture that would preoccupy him for the rest of his life and his first sight of the monuments he most admired: the mosque complexes, the Acropolis, and the Parthenon. Le Corbusier himself suppressed publication of this book during ...

(P/B) IN THE SWARM
DIGITAL PROSPECTS
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0343

"The shitstorm represents an authentic phenomenon of digital communication." Digital communication and social media have taken over our lives. In this contrarian reflection on digitized life, Byung-Chul Han counters the cheerleaders for Twitter revolutions and Facebook activism by arguing that digital communication is in fact responsible for the disintegration of community and public space and is slowly eroding any possibility for real political action and meaningful political discourse. In the predigital, analog era, by the time an angry ...

(P/B) TOPOLOGY OF VIOLENCE
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0363

One of today's most widely read philosophers considers the shift in violence from visible to invisible, from negativity to excess of positivity. Some things never disappear - violence, for example. Violence is ubiquitous and incessant but protean, varying its outward form according to the social constellation at hand. In Topology of Violence, the philosopher Byung-Chul Han considers the shift in violence from the visible to the invisible, from the frontal to the viral to the self-inflicted, from brute force to mediated force, from the rea...

(H/B) THE DEEP LEARNING REVOLUTION
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0378

How deep learning - from Google Translate to driverless cars to personal cognitive assistants - is changing our lives and transforming every sector of the economy. The deep learning revolution has brought us driverless cars, the greatly improved Google Translate, fluent conversations with Siri and Alexa, and enormous profits from automated trading on the New York Stock Exchange. Deep learning networks can play poker better than professional poker players and defeat a world champion at Go. In this book, Terry Sejnowski explains how deep le...

(H/B) DEEP LEARNING
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0445

Deep learning is a form of machine learning that enables computers to learn from experience and understand the world in terms of a hierarchy of concepts. Because the computer gathers knowledge from experience, there is no need for a human computer operator to formally specify all the knowledge that the computer needs. The hierarchy of concepts allows the computer to learn complicated concepts by building them out of simpler ones; a graph of these hierarchies would be many layers deep. This book introduces a broad range of topics in deep le...

(P/B) 3D PRINTING
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0420

An accessible introduction to 3D printing that outlines the additive manufacturing process, industrial and household markets, and emerging uses. The use of 3D printing-digitally controlled additive manufacturing-is growing rapidly. Consumer models of 3D printers allow people to fabricate small plastic objects, from cabinet knobs to wedding cake toppers. Industrial uses are becoming widespread, as businesses use the technology to fabricate prototypes, spare parts, custom-fitted prosthetics, and other plastic or metal items, often at lower ...

(P/B) SUSTAINABILITY
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0431

A concise and accessible examination of sustainability in a range of contemporary contexts, from economic development to government policy. The word "sustainability" has been connected to everything from a certain kind of economic development to corporate promises about improved supply sourcing. But despite the apparent ubiquity of the term, the concept of sustainability has come to mean a number of specific things. In this accessible guide to the meanings of sustainability, Kent Portney describes the evolution of the idea and examines it...

(P/B) NIHILISM
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0412

An examination of the meaning of meaninglessness: why it matters that nothing matters. When someone is labeled a nihilist, it's not usually meant as a compliment. Most of us associate nihilism with destructiveness and violence. Nihilism means, literally, "an ideology of nothing. " Is nihilism, then, believing in nothing? Or is it the belief that life is nothing? Or the belief that the beliefs we have amount to nothing? If we can learn to recognize the many varieties of nihilism, Nolen Gertz writes, then we can learn to distinguish what is...

(P/B) CARBON CAPTURE
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0417

A concise overview of carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS), a promising but overlooked climate change mitigation pathway. The burning of fossil fuels releases carbon dioxide (CO2), and these CO2 emissions are a major driver of climate change. Carbon capture offers a path to climate change mitigation that has received relatively little attention. In this volume in the MIT Press Essential Knowledge series, Howard Herzog offers a concise guide to carbon capture, covering basic information as well as the larger context of climate technolo...

(P/B) THE TECHNOLOGICAL SINGULARITY
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0433

The idea of technological singularity, and what it would mean if ordinary human intelligence were enhanced or overtaken by artificial intelligence. The idea that human history is approaching a "singularity"-that ordinary humans will someday be overtaken by artificially intelligent machines or cognitively enhanced biological intelligence, or both-has moved from the realm of science fiction to serious debate. Some singularity theorists predict that if the field of artificial intelligence (AI) continues to develop at its current dizzying rat...

(P/B) THE CONSPIRACY OF ART
MANIFESTOS, TEXTS, INTERVIEWS
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0061

The images from Abu Ghraib are as murderous for America as those of the World Trade Center in flames. The whole West is contained in the burst of sadistic laughter of the American soldiers, as it is behind the construction of the Israeli wall. This is where the truth of these images lies. Truth, but not veracity. As virtual as the war itself, their specific violence adds to the specific violence of the war. In The Conspiracy of Art, Baudrillard questions the privilege attached to art by its practitioners. Art has lost all desire for illusi...

(P/B) THE AGONY OF EROS
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0342

Byung-Chul Han is one of the most widely read philosophers in Europe today, a member of the new generation of German thinkers that includes Markus Gabriel and Armen Avanessian. In The Agony of Eros, a bestseller in Germany, Han considers the threat to love and desire in today's society. For Han, love requires the courage to accept self-negation for the sake of discovering the Other. In a world of fetishized individualism and technologically mediated social interaction, it is the Other that is eradicated, not the self. In today's increasing...

(H/B) THE ADVENTURE
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0356

Agamben charts a journey that ranges from poems of chivalry to philosophy, from Yvain to Hegel, from Beatrice to Heidegger. An ancient legend identifies Demon, Chance, Love, and Necessity as the four gods who preside over the birth of every human being. We must all pay tribute to these deities and should not try to elude or dupe them. To accept them, Giorgio Agamben suggests, is to live one's life as an adventure - not in the trivial sense of the term, with lightness and disenchantment, but with the understanding that adventure, as a spec...

(P/B) THE INTERNET OF THINGS
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0413

A guided tour through the Internet of Things, a networked world of connected devices, objects, and people that is changing the way we live and work. We turn on the lights in our house from a desk in an office miles away. Our refrigerator alerts us to buy milk on the way home. A package of cookies on the supermarket shelf suggests that we buy it, based on past purchases. The cookies themselves are on the shelf because of a "smart" supply chain. When we get home, the thermostat has already adjusted the temperature so that it's toasty or bra...

(P/B) FAKE PHOTOS
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0438

A concise and accessible guide to techniques for detecting doctored and fake images in photographs and digital media. Stalin, Mao, Hitler, Mussolini, and other dictators routinely doctored photographs so that the images aligned with their messages. They erased people who were there, added people who were not, and manipulated backgrounds. They knew if they changed the visual record, they could change history. Once, altering images required hours in the darkroom; today, it can be done with a keyboard and mouse. Because photographs are so ea...

(P/B) MACHINE LEARNING
THE NEW AI
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0357

A concise overview of machine learning - computer programs that learn from data - which underlies applications that include recommendation systems, face recognition, and driverless cars. Today, machine learning underlies a range of applications we use every day, from product recommendations to voice recognition - as well as some we don't yet use everyday, including driverless cars. It is the basis of the new approach in computing where we do not write programs but collect data; the idea is to learn the algorithms for the tasks automatical...

(P/B) GOOD ENTERTAINMENT
A DECONSTRUCTION OF THE WESTERN PASSION NARRATIVE
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0416

A philosopher considers entertainment, in all its totalizing variety-infotainment, edutainment, servotainment-and traces the notion through Kant, Zen Buddhism, Heidegger, Kafka, and Rauschenberg. In Good Entertainment, Byung-Chul Han examines the notion of entertainment-its contemporary ubiquity, and its philosophical genealogy. Entertainment today, in all its totalizing variety, has an apparently infinite capacity for incorporation: infotainment, edutainment, servotainment, confrontainment. Entertainment is held up as a new paradigm, eve...

(H/B) DICTIONARY OF GESTURES
EXPRESSIVE COMPORTMENTS AND MOVEMENTS IN USE AROUND THE WORLD
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0383

An illustrated guide to more than 850 gestures and their meanings around the world, from a nod of the head to a click of the heels. Gestures convey meaning with a flourish. A vigorous nod of the head, a bold jut of the chin, an enthusiastic thumbs-up: all speak louder than words. Yet the same gesture may have different meanings in different parts of the world. What Americans understand as the "A-OK gesture," for example, is an obscene insult in the Arab world. This volume is the reference book we didn't know we needed - an illustrated dic...

(P/B) POST-TRUTH
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0377

How we arrived in a post-truth era, when "alternative facts" replace actual facts, and feelings have more weight than evidence. Are we living in a post-truth world, where "alternative facts" replace actual facts and feelings have more weight than evidence? How did we get here? In this volume in the MIT Press Essential Knowledge series, Lee McIntyre traces the development of the post-truth phenomenon from science denial through the rise of "fake news," from our psychological blind spots to the public's retreat into "information silos."
