Artificial Intelligence and the Environmental Crisis: Can Technology Really Save the World?

1st Edition

Keith Ronald Skene
December 13, 2019

A radical and challenging book which argues that artificial intelligence needs a completely different set of foundations, based on ecological intelligence rather than human intelligence, if it is to deliver on the promise of a better world. This can usher in the greatest transformation in human...

Text Mining with Machine Learning: Principles and Techniques

1st Edition

Jan Žižka, František Dařena, Arnošt Svoboda
November 11, 2019

This book provides a perspective on the application of machine learning-based methods in knowledge discovery from natural languages texts. By analysing various data sets, conclusions which are not normally evident, emerge and can be used for various purposes and applications. The book provides...

Teaching Tech Together: How to Make Your Lessons Work and Build a Teaching Community around Them

1st Edition

Greg Wilson
November 04, 2019

Hundreds of grassroots groups have sprung up around the world to teach programming, web design, robotics, and other skills outside traditional classrooms. These groups exist so that people don't have to learn these things on their own, but ironically, their founders and instructors are often...

An Integrated Introduction to Computer Graphics and Geometric Modeling

1st Edition

Ronald Goldman
October 15, 2019

Taking a novel, more appealing approach than current texts, An Integrated Introduction to Computer Graphics and Geometric Modeling focuses on graphics, modeling, and mathematical methods, including ray tracing, polygon shading, radiosity, fractals, freeform curves and surfaces, vector methods, and...

Optimization Using Evolutionary Algorithms and Metaheuristics: Applications in Engineering

1st Edition

Kaushik Kumar, J. Paulo Davim
August 27, 2019

Metaheuristic optimization is a higher-level procedure or heuristic designed to find, generate, or select a heuristic (partial search algorithm) that may provide a sufficiently good solution to an optimization problem, especially with incomplete or imperfect information or limited computation...

Hidden Markov Models: Theory and Implementation using MATLAB®

1st Edition

João Paulo Coelho, Tatiana M. Pinho, José Boaventura-Cunha
August 13, 2019

This book presents, in an integrated form, both the analysis and synthesis of three different types of hidden Markov models. Unlike other books on the subject, it is generic and does not focus on a specific theme, e.g. speech processing. Moreover, it presents the translation of hidden Markov models...
