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...

Parallel Computing Architectures and APIs: IoT Big Data Stream Processing

1st Edition

Vivek Kale
December 02, 2019

Parallel Computing Architectures and APIs: IoT Big Data Stream Processing commences from the point high-performance uniprocessors were becoming increasingly complex, expensive, and power-hungry. A basic trade-off exists between the use of one or a small number of such complex processors, at one...

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...
