Meet Neo D. Truman
Neo D. Truman got a Master of Science in Information Technology degree in 2011. He has more than fifteen years of experience in software development especially full-stack web development.
In the 21st century, it has become imperative that learners at all levels of education are armed with the technological skills needed for the next stage of their life. The majority of teachers believe that technology will kick them out of their jobs. No, teachers will always be drivers of knowledge and innovation but a driver of knowledge that does not know the road will drive the learners on a wrong path. The top-rated teachers are creative and innovative, loving, caring and they have empathy towards their learners. They are masters of subject matter, they facilitate learners’ growth in the three domains of learning, cognitive, psychomotor, and affective domains through technology and other skills aforementioned. Today, there are many facets to classroom technology as concerned lesson delivery, text, video, games, simulations, and appropriate hardware and software to bring everything together. Different Learning Management systems bring part or all of this together which allows for great collaboration between the school, teachers, learners, parents, and the global education community. These platforms are either paid, free, or in-App purchases. It is not only the teachers that are creative, but the learners also do too and there must be a shift in the role of the teachers from content deliverer to the role of learning facilitator who guides the learners in the use of technology to create their learning. Classroom technology is not about the technology device(s) you have in your classroom, it is about making the most out of what is available.

Omni Reign is an adventurous science-fiction novel set in a future where Omni, an all-encompassing artificial superintelligence, governs humanity. To generate fair democratic votes, Omni lets its people constantly observe each other and reads out everyone’s emotions.
When Mark’s robotic surgeon botches up a cosmetic body modification, his peers blame him for killing his client. Voted out of society, he is to be suspended in an eternal virtual dream so he won’t ever hurt anyone again. But what if he ignored appropriate medical protocols and hacked together a procedure to revive his client and save his own skin?
In Omni Reign, neither artificial superintelligence nor meta-verse-like experiences or robots destroy. They all work more or less as advertised, which might seem like a utopian future for some. But on an individual level, problems certainly still exist, and human extinction is by no means off the table.

Throughout the pandemic period, podcasts exploded in popularity. So you’re right to think about creating one yourself.
But most of these shows are either pure entertainment or vanity projects. Narrow Podcasting shows you how to run a podcast that actually grows your business. By focusing on not the quantity of listeners, but the quality of the relationships you build.
There’s a lot of nonsense on the internet. But one of the most pervasive myths around podcasts is that you need paid ads, sponsorship, or hundreds of listeners to make them successful. Not only is that not true, but most people’s idea of success is actually just fame. If you’re anything like me, maybe you’d prefer to grow a wildly profitable business without having to “put yourself out there.” In this book, I’ll show you how you can get “in there” with the right people and leave them wanting more.

Have you ever wondered why you can’t catch a rocket to Mars? Or Jupiter, or Pluto, or the nearest star? The latter is an exciting prospect, since it is orbited by an ‘exo’ (earth-like) planet that might support life. This richly illustrated book will explain why getting there is not as crazy an idea as you might think. It will also help you understand what has been holding back science and technology for many years, or decades, and what we can do about it; as well as providing a fascinating glimpse into a wide range of fantastic future possibilities. Artificial intelligence, or AI, which is presented as a key means for us to achieve these goals, is discussed in depth. The author, Lyndon N. Smith, is a professor in AI at a major UK university, with a background in physics and engineering, and over 25 years of research experience (on both sides of the Atlantic). After publishing 180 scientific papers and a number of academic books, he explains in this unique, provocative, and accessible book, not only what amazing tasks can be achieved by modern AI techniques such as ‘convolutional neural networks’ – but also how they actually work! This is followed by an enlightening survey of potential and definite threats that we all face (with possible responses), that include Brexit, contact with extra-terrestrials (ET), near Earth objects (NEOs) colliding with the Earth, viruses, and global warming. There is then a discussion of fascinating technological developments that we may expect to see in the near, and far, future. Here topics addressed include: transport, robotics (from Robby the Robot through to Data), elimination of the need for instrumentalities, prospects for abundant power, manufacture of any objects we desire, as well as the likelihood of a number of miscellaneous miracles that include: invisibility, truly useful nanotechnology, and space elevators.
The author goes on to discuss the effects we may expect such advanced technologies to have on our lives, including the prospects for eternal life and attainment of velocities in excess of that of light for interstellar travel; with all the astonishing implications the latter would have for overcoming the previously mentioned threats, as well as facilitating human exploration and possible colonisation of the Milky Way Galaxy and beyond. As though this wasn’t enough, a range of predictions are then given of the amazing technological developments expected in the far future. The author encourages us to ‘reach for the stars’ and concludes that we have it in our power to realise a new Golden Age for humanity – providing we can find the wisdom to avoid destroying ourselves in a nuclear Armageddon and instead focus our efforts on the powerful potential of future research and development.
If you have any interest in science and technology, and its effects on society – and more specifically your future life (and who hasn’t?), you will find this book engrossing and enlightening. As well as employing a highly accessible and breezy style, the author makes liberal use of quotations and allusions to well-known figures from popular culture. The result is a very engaging book that you will not be able to put down nor stop thinking about. You will wonder why we don’t hear more about how all the technologies that surround us can and should help improve our quality of life (much more than they currently do), both now and in the future. You will understand why we need to spend more time and effort on looking to the future rather than agonising over the past. And, you will never view Sherlock Holmes or Star Trek in the same way again!
Meet Prof. Lyndon N. Smith
About Prof Lyndon Neal Smith PhD
Lyndon N. Smith has a strong interest in science and technology, and a particular fascination with developments in physics and engineering that can have potentially revolutionary effects on the way we live. He feels that scientific and technological developments of recent decades have been less dramatic than was expected, say, seventy years ago and that an investigation into why this is the case and what we can do about it is well overdue. His background includes degrees in physics, robotics and engineering, as well as 26 years of research experience in the UK (and USA), which has resulted in 180 technical papers, two books and the supervision of 20 PhDs. As well as being a professor at a major UK university, he is also something of a bibliophile; but has had a long-standing concern about the lack of accessibility of many science and technology related publications, in terms of the associated difficulties with public engagement with science, as well as reducing the likelihood of science having a strong and beneficial impact on society. He believes that one way to increase the accessibility of science is to employ an informal style, and to make liberal use of quotations and allusions to well-known figures from popular culture. This is what he has aimed to do with his new book. His intention is to make you wonder why we don’t hear more about how modern technologies can revolutionise our lives. He believes we need to spend more time and effort on looking to the future rather than agonising over the past. And he uses discussion of people and events from the past, as well as various predictions of the possible future, to throw light on the situation for science and technology, and what developments we might expect going forward. Lyndon lives in Central Somerset, with his wife and son.
