Synesthesia (The MIT Press Essential Knowledge series) by Richard E. Cytowic
English | March 2nd, 2018 | ASIN: B07B9T8YTY, ISBN: 0262535092 | 288 Pages | EPUB | 2.70 MB

One in twenty-three people carry the genes for the synesthesia. Not a disorder but a neurological trait – like perfect pitch – synesthesia creates vividly felt cross-sensory couplings. A synesthete might hear a voice and at the same time see it as a color or shape, taste its distinctive flavor, or feel it as a physical touch. In this volume in the MIT Press Essential Knowledge series, Richard Cytowic, the expert who returned synesthesia to mainstream science after decades of oblivion, offers a concise, accessible primer on this fascinating human experience.

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?

Meanwhile, these devices are being received by a public whose main sources of information about robots are the fantasies of popular culture.

Cloud Computing: The MIT Press Essential Knowledge Series [Audiobook]

Cloud Computing: The MIT Press Essential Knowledge Series [Audiobook] by Nayan B. Ruparelia
English | April 15th, 2016 | ASIN: B01DAEY72E, ISBN: 1469065967 | MP3@64 kbps | 5 hrs 25 mins | 147.42 MB
Narrator: Walter Dixon

Most of the information available on cloud computing is either highly technical, with details that are irrelevant to nontechnologists, or pure marketing hype, in which the cloud is simply a selling point. This book, however, explains the cloud from the user's viewpoint - the business user's in particular. Nayan Ruparelia explains what the cloud is, when to use it (and when not to), how to select a cloud service, how to integrate it with other technologies, and what the best practices are for using cloud computing.

English | December 1st, 2017 | ASIN: B077YXQZZZ, ISBN: 0262534819 | 194 Pages | EPUB | 0.41 MB

The future is like an unwritten book. It is not something we see in a crystal ball, or can only hope to predict, like the weather. In this volume of the MIT Press's Essential Knowledge series, Nick Montfort argues that the future is something to be made, not predicted. Montfort offers what he considers essential knowledge about the future, as seen in the work of writers, artists, inventors, and designers (mainly in Western culture) who developed and described the core components of the futures they envisioned.

Although it is among the oldest of market institutions, the auction is ubiquitous in today's economy, used for everything from government procurement to selling advertising on the Internet to course assignment at MIT's Sloan School. And yet beyond the small number of economists who specialize in the subject, few people understand how auctions really work.

English | February 14th, 2014 | ASIN: B00ICXP9GC, ISBN: 0262525798 | 152 Pages | EPUB | 0.11 MB

In our daily life, it really seems as though we have free will, that what we do from moment to moment is determined by conscious decisions that we freely make. You get up from the couch, you go for a walk, you eat chocolate ice cream. It seems that we're in control of actions like these; if we are, then we have free will.
