Book Description :

New book by the author of the well-known titles on Godot game engine and GDScript such as "GD Script", "Making games with GDScript" and "Autonomous Cars". The book uses the MTH method for learning and is written for both beginner and experienced game developers. Beginners are advised to read a book from the beginning, and game developers to use it as a reminder and troubleshooting guide. (From book preface) If you are a complete beginner, start reading from the beginning. You will learn the basics of GDScript through the features and methods of the 2D node class. After that, go through the "GDScript in the programming" chapter. Later, you can learn about StaticBody2D, RigidBody2D, and KinematicBody2D. Game examples after @GDScript class and after 2D Body's chapter will be of additional help to you. In addition to the above for beginners, I advise you to watch free video tutorials on my Udemy account (Slavs Make Games M.D.C.). The book is a complete manual for making video games and comes with a lot of additional educational material. A game developer reading this book will find properties and methods for a particular class. In addition, each property and method is illustrated by a code example. At the end of the class description, is also a code example. Examples like this are often parts of computer games. After ordering the book, write to e-mail letray2@yahoo.com to get additional educational content with the book.

Book Description :

Robots That Talk and Listen provides a forward-looking examination of speech and language in robots from technical, functional, and social perspectives. Contributors address cultural foundations as well as the linguistic skills and technologies that robots need to function effectively in real-world settings. Among the most difficult and complex is the ability to understand and use language. Speech-enabled automata are already serving as interactive toys, teacher’s aides, and research assistants. These robots will soon be joined by personal companions, industrial co-workers, and military support automata. The social impact of these and other robots extends well beyond the specific tasks they perform. Contributors tackle the most knotty of those issues, notably acceptance of advanced, speech-enabled robots and developing ethical and moral controls for robots. Topics in this book include: •Language and Beyond: The True Meaning of “Speech Enabled” •Robots in Myth and Media •Enabling Robots to Converse •Language Learning by Automata •Handling Noisy Settings •Empirical Studies of Robots in Real-World Environments •Acceptance of Intelligent Robots •Managing Robots that Can Lie and Deceive •Envisioning a World Shared with Intelligent Robots

Book Description :

This is the fully revised and expanded second edition of English - One Tongue, Many Voices, a book by three internationally distinguished English language scholars who tell the fascinating, improbable saga of English in time and space. Chapters trace the history of the language from its obscure beginnings over 1500 years ago as a collection of dialects spoken by marauding, illiterate tribes. They show how the geographical spread of the language in its increasing diversity has made English into an international language of unprecedented range and variety. The authors examine the present state of English as a global language and the problems, pressures and uncertainties of its future, online and offline. They argue that, in spite of the amazing variety and plurality of English, it remains a single language.
