"Smart, wide-ranging, [and] nontechnical." -- Los Angeles Times"Anyone who wants to understand what's coming must read this fascinating book." -- Martin Ford, New York Times bestselling author of Rise of the RobotsIn the year 2014, Google fired a shot heard all the way to Detroit. Google's newest driverless car had no steering wheel and no brakes. The message was clear: cars of the future will be born fully autonomous, with no human driver needed. In the coming decade, self-driving cars will hit the streets, rearranging established industries and reshaping cities, giving us new choices in where we live and how we work and play.In this book, Hod Lipson and Melba Kurman offer readers insight into the risks and benefits of driverless cars and a lucid and engaging explanation of the enabling technology. Recent advances in software and robotics are toppling long-standing technological barriers that for decades have confined self-driving cars to the realm of fantasy. A new kind of artificial intelligence software called deep learning gives cars rapid and accurate visual perception. Human drivers can relax and take their eyes off the road. When human drivers let intelligent software take the wheel, driverless cars will offer billions of people all over the world a safer, cleaner, and more convenient mode of transportation. Although the technology is nearly ready, car companies and policy makers may not be. The authors make a compelling case for why government, industry, and consumers need to work together to make the development of driverless cars our society's next "Apollo moment."

A computer beats the reigning human champion of Go, a game harder than chess. Another is composing classical music. Labs are creating life-forms from synthetic DNA. A doctor designs an artificial trachea, uses a 3D printer to produce it, and implants it and saves a child's life. Astonishing technological advances like these are arriving in increasing numbers. Scholar and entrepreneur Vivek Wadhwa uses this book to alert us to dozens of them and raise important questions about what they may mean for us. Breakthroughs such as personalized genomics, self-driving vehicles, drones, and artificial intelligence could make our lives healthier, safer, and easier. But the same technologies raise the specter of a frightening, alienating future: eugenics, a jobless economy, complete loss of privacy, and ever-worsening economic inequality. As Wadhwa puts it, our choices will determine if our future is Star Trek or Mad Max. Wadhwa offers us three questions to ask about every emerging technology: Does it have the potential to benefit everyone equally? What are its risks and rewards? And does it promote autonomy or dependence? Looking at a broad array of advances in this light, he emphasizes that the future is up to us to create—that even if our hands are not on the wheel, we will decide the driverless car's destination.

Fabricated tells the story of 3D printers, humble manufacturing machines that are bursting out of the factory and into schools, kitchens, hospitals, even onto the fashion catwalk. Fabricated describes our emerging world of printable products, where people design and 3D print their own creations as easily as they edit an online document. A 3D printer transforms digital information into a physical object by carrying out instructions from an electronic design file, or 'blueprint.' Guided by a design file, a 3D printer lays down layer after layer of a raw material to 'print' out an object. That's not the whole story, however. The magic happens when you plug a 3D printer into today’s mind-boggling digital technologies. Add to that the Internet, tiny, low cost electronic circuitry, radical advances in materials science and biotech and voila! The result is an explosion of technological and social innovation. Fabricated takes the reader onto a rich and fulfilling journey that explores how 3D printing is poised to impact nearly every part of our lives. Aimed at people who enjoy books on business strategy, popular science and novel technology, Fabricated will provide readers with practical and imaginative insights to the question 'how will this technology change my life?' Based on hundreds of hours of research and dozens of interviews with experts from a broad range of industries, Fabricated offers readers an informative, engaging and fast-paced introduction to 3D printing now and in the future.

America is the world leader in innovation, but many of the innovative ideas that are hatched in American start-ups, labs, and companies end up going abroad to reach commercial scale. Apple, the superstar of innovation, locates its production in China (yet still reaps most of its profits in the United States). When innovation does not find the capital, skills, and expertise it needs to come to market in the United States, what does it mean for economic growth and job creation? Inspired by the MIT Made in America project of the 1980s, Making in America brings experts from across MIT to focus on a critical problem for the country.MIT scientists, engineers, social scientists, and management experts visited more than 250 firms in the United States, Germany, and China. In companies across America -- from big defense contractors to small machine shops and new technology start-ups -- these experts tried to learn how we can rebuild the industrial landscape to sustain an innovative economy. At each stop, they asked this basic question: "When you have a new idea, how do you get it into the market?" They found gaping holes and missing pieces in the industrial ecosystem. Even in an Internet-connected world, proximity to innovation and users matters for industry. Making in America describes ways to strengthen this connection, including public-private collaborations, new government-initiated manufacturing innovation institutes, and industry/community college projects. If we can learn from these ongoing experiments in linking innovation to production, American manufacturing could have a renaissance.

This book provides a long-overdue vision for a new automobile era. The cars we drive today follow the same underlying design principles as the Model Ts of a hundred years ago and the tail-finned sedans of fifty years ago. In the twenty-first century, cars are still made for twentieth-century purposes. They are inefficient for providing personal mobility within cities -- where most of the world's people now live. In this pathbreaking book, William Mitchell and two industry experts reimagine the automobile, describing vehicles of the near future that are green, smart, connected, and fun to drive. They roll out four big ideas that will make this both feasible and timely.The fundamental reinvention of the automobile won't be easy, but it is an urgent necessity -- to make urban mobility more convenient and sustainable, to make cities more livable, and to help bring the automobile industry out of crisis.

"2030 The Driverless World" is a business book, with a time traveler narrative about how to get from 2017 to the Driverless World of 2030 where human drivers share the road with autonomous vehicles, and jay-walking pedestrians. "Sudha takes us with her on a ride to the not so distant future of 2030 where auto AI is the new normal. Tapping her expertise in cognitive IoT, Sudha shares how driverless cars will communicate both with us and with our smart city infrastructure, providing the GPS for the transformation of passenger vehicles, semi trucks, and urban mobility."- Ken Herron CMO Unified Inbox LLC. The author shares a vision of the Driverless World and walks us through the business opportunity, risks, regulations and the many transformations of businesses that are needed to get us from 2017 to 2030 and beyond. Imagine if the road could tell the car if it was icy, traffic lights and parking spots signaled the cars and the wearables on humans told the car about their health, emotions and entertainment needs. The author boldly predicts that this will be an iteration in the next 10-15 years that will create innovations and disruptions of several industries, giving an opportunity for entrepreneurs and innovators to create new businesses, to find new uses of autonomous vehicles, re-imagine transportation, land re-use and urban mobility. As you flip the pages of this book, you step into a world of inspiration into the autonomous driving world of 2030. We will look at the impact on our jobs, cities, and mobility. We will learn how the nuances of human communication on the road were translated into technology by 2030, thereby creating many Cognitive IoT devices impacting cities, transportation, and urban mobility. We will take an in-depth look at the transformation of Automotive, Transportation, and Cities. We will talk about regulation and governance and how cities and countries adopted to the car AI's technology to ask for data and algorithmic governance of self-driving cars. A chapter will focus on what the self-driving car sees to help us understand the Technology behind these autonomous vehicles. Finally, look ahead to how we can get to a fully autonomous driving world. "The future Sudha Jamthe reveals in this book about cars as moral machines challenges our assumptions of what is a human-only domain as we create machines that learn their environment, respond to our emotions and reflect empathy. The future is now, and the legacy we leave for future generations is worth the careful consideration of our decisions made today." - Tamara McCleary, Global Technology Influencer, and CEO, Thulium.co
