Language: English
Description: The information deluge currently assaulting us in the 21st century
is having a profound impact on our lifestyles and how we work. We
must constantly separate trustworthy and required information from
the massive amount of data we encounter each day. Through
mathematical theories, models, and experimental computations,
Artificial Intelligence with Uncertainty explores the uncertainties
of knowledge and intelligence that occur during the cognitive
processes of human beings. The authors focus on the importance of
natural language-the carrier of knowledge and intelligence-for
artificial intelligence (AI) study.

This book develops a framework that… more…

Description: The technical committee on mechatronics formed by the International
Federation for the Theory of Machines and Mechanisms, in Prague,
Czech Republic, adopted the following definition for the term:
Mechatronics is the synergistic combination of precision mechanical
engineering, electronic control and systems thinking in the design
products and manufacturing process. Due to developments in powerful
computers, including microprocessors and Application Specific
Integrated Circuits (ASICS), computational techniques, diverse
technologies, advances in the design process of products and other
factors, the field of mechatronics has evolved as a highly… more…

Evolutionary Computer Music (by Eduardo Reck Miranda, John Al Biles)


Author(s): Eduardo Reck Miranda, John Al Biles

Publisher: Springer
Publish date: 2007-04-03
ISBN-10: 1846285992
ISBN-13: 9781846285998
Language: English
Description:
This book discusses the applications of evolutionary computation
to music and the tools needed to create and study such systems.
These tools can be combined to create surrogate artificial worlds
populated by interacting simulated organisms in which complex
musical experiments can be performed. The book demonstrates that
evolutionary systems can be used to create and to study musical
compositions and cultures in ways that have never before been
achieved.

Secure and Trustworthy Service Composition: The Aniketos Approach (Lecture Notes in Computer Science / Security and Cryptology) (by Achim Brucker, Fabiano Dalpiaz, Paolo Giorgini, Per Hakon Meland, Erkuden Rios)


Author(s): Achim Brucker, Fabiano Dalpiaz, Paolo Giorgini, Per Hakon Meland, Erkuden Rios

Publisher: Springer
Publish date: 2014-11-20
ISBN-10: 3319135171
ISBN-13: 9783319135175
Language: English
Description:
The Future Internet envisions a move toward widespread use of
services as a way of networked interaction. However, while the
technologies for developing and deploying services are well
established, methods for ensuring trust and security are fewer
and less mature. Lack of trust and confidence in composed
services and in their constituent parts is reckoned to be one of
the significant factors limiting widespread uptake of
service-oriented computing.

This state-of-the-art survey illustrates the results of the
Aniketos – Secure and Trustworthy Composite Services – project
(funded under the EU 7th Research Framework… more…

Re-framing Literacy: Teaching and Learning in English and the Language Arts (Language, Culture, and Teaching Series) (by Richard Andrews)


Author(s): Richard Andrews

Publisher: Routledge
Publish date: 2010-08-04
ISBN-10: 0415995531
ISBN-13: 9780415995535
Language: English
Description:
Imaginative and attractive, cutting edge in its conception, this
text explicates a model for the integration of language arts and
literacy education based on the notion of framing. The act of
framing – not frames in themselves – provides a creative and
critical approach to English as a subject. Re-framing
Literacy breaks new ground in the language arts/literacy
field, integrating arts-based and sociologically based
conceptions of the subject. The theory of rhetoric the book
describes and which provides its overarching theory is dialogic,
political, and liberating.

Pedagogically, the text works inductively, from examples… more…

ISBN-10: 1565925297
ISBN-13: 9781565925298
Language: English
Description:

Historically, only large companies could afford secure
networks, which they created from expensive leased lines.
Smaller folks had to make do with the relatively untrusted
Internet. Nowadays, even large companies have to go outside
their private nets, because so many people telecommute or log
in while they're on the road. How do you provide a low-cost,
secure electronic network for your organization?The solution is
a virtual private network: a collection of technologies that
creates secure connections or "tunnels" over regular Internet
lines–connections that can be easily used by anybody logging
in… more…
