Unit Operations: An Approach to Videogame Criticism
Unit Operations: An Approach to Videogame Criticism
"Bogost challenges humanists and technologists to pay attention to one another, something they desperately need to do as computation accelerates us into the red zones of widespread virtual reality. This book gives us what we need to meet that challenge: a general theory for understanding creativity under computation, one that will apply...
The Coming Generational Storm: What You Need to Know about America's Economic Future
The Coming Generational Storm: What You Need to Know about America's Economic Future
In 2030, as 77 million baby boomers hobble into old age, walkers will outnumber strollers; there will be twice as many retirees as there are today but only 18 percent more workers. How will America handle this demographic overload? How will Social Security and Medicare function with fewer working taxpayers to support these programs? According to...
Is Human Nature Obsolete?: Genetics, Bioengineering, and the Future of the Human Condition
Is Human Nature Obsolete?: Genetics, Bioengineering, and the Future of the Human Condition
"Modifying ourselves through molecular biology is a humanitarian utopia to some, an imminent nightmare to others. But to all, the prospect should be a challenge because it touches on so many basic and unresolved questions. This excellent, probing collection of papers -- spanning philosophy, history, social science, and theology -- will be...
Exploratory Analysis and Data Modeling in Functional Neuroimaging
Exploratory Analysis and Data Modeling in Functional Neuroimaging
"All of the papers are well presented and accompanied by illustrative experimental applications. The book coverage goes beyond standard methodologies in functional neuroimaging and amounts to a highly valuable contribution to the field."
 -- Alfonso Nieto-Castanon, Neural Networks 18 (2005) 307-308

Improvisational Design: Continuous, Responsive Digital Communication
Improvisational Design: Continuous, Responsive Digital Communication
"This original and sound book should have a profound effect on design for digital media."
-- Mark D. Gross, Design Machine Group, Department of Architecture, University of Washington

Traditional visual design expresses information in fixed forms, such as print or film, so the message can be stored or
...
Circuit Design with VHDL
Circuit Design with VHDL
This textbook teaches VHDL using system examples combined with programmable logic and supported by laboratory exercises. While other textbooks concentrate only on language features, Circuit Design with VHDL offers a fully integrated presentation of VHDL and design concepts by including a large number of complete design examples,...
Perspectives on Free and Open Source Software
Perspectives on Free and Open Source Software
Briefly stated, the terms “free software” and “open source software” refer
to software products distributed under terms that allow users to:

 Use the software
 Modify the software
 Redistribute the software

in any manner they see fit, without requiring that they pay the author(s)...
The Second Self: Computers and the Human Spirit -- Twentieth Anniversary Edition
The Second Self: Computers and the Human Spirit -- Twentieth Anniversary Edition
In The Second Self, Sherry Turkle looks at the computer not as a "tool," but as part of our social and psychological lives; she looks beyond how we use computer games and spreadsheets to explore how the computer affects our awareness of ourselves, of one another, and of our relationship with the world. "Technology," she...
Invention of Hysteria: Charcot and the Photographic Iconography of the Salpetriere
Invention of Hysteria: Charcot and the Photographic Iconography of the Salpetriere
In this classic of French cultural studies, Georges Didi-Huberman traces the intimate and reciprocal relationship between the disciplines of psychiatry and photography in the late nineteenth century. Focusing on the immense photographic output of the Salpetriere hospital, the notorious Parisian asylum for insane and incurable women, Didi-Huberman...
2D Object Detection and Recognition: Models, Algorithms, and Networks
2D Object Detection and Recognition: Models, Algorithms, and Networks
This book is about detecting and recognizing 2D objects in gray-level images. Howare
models constructed? Howare they trained? What are the computational approaches to
efficient implementation on a computer? And finally, how can some of these computations
be implemented in the framework of parallel and biologically plausible neural...
System Modeling in Cellular Biology: From Concepts to Nuts and Bolts
System Modeling in Cellular Biology: From Concepts to Nuts and Bolts
Biology is the study of self-replicating chemical processes. Biology is the study of
systems accurately transmitting a genetic blueprint. Biology is the study of complex
adaptive reproducing systems.

What is systems biology if all definitions of biology implicitly or explicitly refer to
the study of a whole object, whether
...
Molecular Computing
Molecular Computing
This text covers abstract principles of molecular computing and the building of actual systems. Topics include the use of proteins and other molecules for information processing, molecular recognition, computation in nonlinear media, and more.

The next great change in computer science and information technology will come from mimicking...
