Random House presents the audiobook edition of Talk to Me, written and read by James Vlahos. The next great technological disruption is coming.The titans of Silicon Valley are racing to build a single world-changing piece of software. They know that whoever gets there first will revolutionise our relationship with technology - and make billions of dollars in the process. They call it voice computing.Computers that can speak and think just as clearly as humans may seem like the stuff of science fiction, but they are mere years away from becoming a reality. In Talk to Me, veteran tech journalist James Vlahos meets the researchers at Google, Amazon and Apple who are leading the way to a voice computing revolution. He explores how voice tech will transform every sector of society, handing untold new powers to businesses, and fundamentally altering the way we understand human consciousness. And he even tries to understand the significance of the AI revolution firsthand - by building a robotic version of his terminally ill father. Vlahos’ research leads him to one fundamental question: what happens when our computers become as articulate, as compassionate and as creative as we are? 1. Language: English. Narrator: James Vlahos.

Maps fascinate us. They chart our understanding of the world and they log our progress, but above all they tell our stories. From the early sketches of philosophers and explorers through to Google Maps and beyond, Simon Garfield examines how maps both relate and realign our history. His compelling narratives range from the quest to create the perfect globe to the challenges of mapping Africa and Antarctica, from spellbinding treasure maps to the naming of America, from Ordnance Survey to the mapping of Monopoly and Skyrim and from rare map dealers to cartographic frauds. En route, there are ´´pocket map´´ tales on dragons and undergrounds, a 19th-century murder map, the research conducted on the different ways that men and women approach a map, and an explanation of the curious long-term cartographic role played by animals. On the Map is a witty, irrepressible examination of where we´ve been, how we got there, and where we´re going. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Simon Shepherd.

From one of Time magazine´s ´´Forty Most Influential Minds in Technology´´ comes an essential collection of candid, firsthand accounts of women in technology. Women in technology are on the rise in both power and numbers, and now it´s more important than ever not to lose that momentum, to ´´lean in´´ and close the gender gap. Although they make up half of the population, only 14 percent of engineers in the United States are women. They take the seeds of technological advancement and build something life changing, potentially life saving. The future of technology depends on the full and active participation of women and men working together, and it is vital that women are both educated and encouraged to go into the tech sectors. Hailed by Foreign Policy Magazine as a ´´Top 100 Global Thinker´´, professor, researcher, and entrepreneur Vivek Wadhwa, alongside award-winning journalist Farai Chideya, set out to collect anecdotes and essays from global leaders, sharing how their experiences in innovative industries frame the future of entrepreneurship. With interviews and essays from hundreds of women in STEM fields, including Anousheh Ansari, the first female private-sector space explorer; former Google[X] VP and current CTO of the USA Megan Smith; Ory Okolloh of the Omidyar Network; venture capitalist Heidi Roizen; and CEO of Nanobiosym, Dr. Anita Goel, MD, PhD, Innovating Women offers perspectives on the challenges women face, the strategies they employ in the workplace, and how an organization can succeed or fail in its attempts to support the career advancement of women. 1.

´I remember how well I liked to turn the pages of my childhood atlas and travel the world to find out where countries and cities were. But there was never anything about why the maps were created - or who drew them. Theatre of the World was my big chance to tell the stories of all those men and women map makers whose amazing work deserves to be celebrated.´ (Thomas Reinertsen Berg)Beautifully written and rich in detail, Theatre of the World reignites our curiosity with the world both ancient and modern. Before you could just put finger to phone to scroll Google Maps, in advance of the era of digital mapping and globes, maps were being constructed from the ideas and questions of pioneering individuals. From visionary geographers to heroic explorers, from the mysterious symbols of the Stone Age to the familiar navigation of Google Earth, Thomas Reinertsen Berg examines the fascinating concepts of science and worldview, of art and technology, power and ambitions, practical needs and distant dreams of the unknown. 1.
