"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

State-of-the-art technology and cutting-edge applications in image processing
Intelligent Image Processing examines the fundamentals of personal imaging and wearable computing with a concentration on the EyeTap technology invented by the author. EyeTap technology comprises eyeglasses or contact lenses that cause the eye itself to function, in effect, as if it were both a camera and a display. Modern embodiments of this invention use a laser system having no moving parts to provide infinite depth of focus from the inside of the eye, out to infinity. The invention eliminates the distinction between cyberspace and the real world, allowing a shared visual experience and shared visual memory among multiple users.
There are a wide range of commercial applications for this technology, including telephones that allow users to see each other's points of view, and systems that improve the sight of the visually impaired. These systems have been proven for electronic news gathering in hostile environments such as fires, floods, riots, and documenting human rights violations-all giving rise to a new genre of first-person cinematography. The invention blurs the boundary between seeing and recording, and the boundary between computing and thinking. It will radically change the way pictures are taken, memories are shared, and news is documented.
The author approaches the fundamental ideas of wearable computing and personal imaging by providing an historical overview of the subject that takes the reader from his original wearable photographic computer inventions of the 1970s, through to the modern EyeTap system. This fascinating technology promises to change the way we live and the way we communicate, and Intelligent Image Processing provides a detailed, technical, and stimulating guide for those who wish to learn about or contribute to this promising future.

In my version there is an error on page 237 where the projective model is placed under the "non-chirping models" which is not correct. I think for a book THAT expensive errors such as this should not happen.
mannnn, this book sucked. Badly sucked. I just don't know what you were talking about...I hate to say this, but I have no idea how you wrote this....
