We are living through an information revolution that is radically changing all aspects of our lives. Living in a Digital World is designed for anyone who would like to build a better understanding of our increasingly digitally dominated world. With more than 140 diagrams and over 70 photographs, the book starts by examining what makes a digital device digital and how it functions as a data processor. A review of algorithms and software completes the foundations, before delving into a broad range of key technologies. These include: networks and the internet, flash memory, mobile communications, artificial intelligence and cryptocurrencies. With these topics and many more to explore, Living in a Digital World will help you to create a sturdy framework, to improve your understanding of digital technology. There are numerous self tests with answers, to allow readers to check and consolidate their learning, as well as suggested practical tasks, promoting further exploration. Each chapter closes with a summary of key learning points. The book includes a detailed table of contents, a comprehensive index, a list of sources and a glossary of technical terms.
