It was with a great insight when Stephen Hawking uttered, “Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.” Incidentally, this also paraphrases Albert Einstein’s saying, “The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.” Adaptive Engineering: A Sustainable Development Endeavor aims at complementing sustainable development and technologies with adaptation. This entails engineering innovations that go hand in hand with responsible human behavior change.The book presents various aspects of adaptive engineering in combination with civil and structural engineering, architecture, urban design and infrastructure, as well as environmental engineering, coastal engineering, climate change, ecology, energy management, and much more. It commences with a comprehensive review of the state of the art of adaptive engineering. It then elucidates multiple engineering fronts that have proven to be robust and versatile, paving the way to a resilient green tomorrow. The contributions from a diverse group of experts present a balanced reference compendium to keep professional engineers, students and researchers, policy makers, and various industry stakeholders abreast with the latest advancements.

Synthetic Media, Deepfakes, and Cyber Deception: Attacks, Analysis, and Defenses introduces the only analytical Synthetic Media Analysis Framework (SMAF) to help describe cyber threats and help security professionals anticipate and analyze attacks. This framework encompasses seven dimensions: Credibility, Control, Medium, Interactivity, Familiarity, Intended Target, and Evocation. Synthetic media is a broad term that encompasses the artificial manipulation, modification, and production of information, covering a spectrum from audio-video deepfakes to text-based chatbots. Synthetic media provides cyber attackers and scammers with a game-changing advantage over traditional ROSE attacks because they have the potential to convincingly impersonate close associates through text, imagery, voice, and video.This burgeoning threat has yet to be meaningfully addressed through any written treatment on the topic. The book is co-authored by three cyber influence and deception experts who have gained deep knowledge and experience on the topic through diverse, true operational pathways and backgrounds. The diversity and perspectives of the author team makes the content in the book the broadest and deepest treatment of synthetic media attacks available to readers.
