Human-Computer Interaction and Beyond: Advances Towards Smart and Interconnected Environments is a 2-part book set that presents discoveries, innovative ideas, concepts, practical solutions, and novel applications of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and related disciplines such as Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Data Mining, Computer Vision, and Natural Language Processing for the future of Smart and Interconnected Environments. This 2-part book presents a unique and diverse collection of the global advancements in HCI in the above-mentioned application domains. These two books contain chapters authored by experts in these fields from 15 different countries - Albania, China, Chile, Croatia, India, Indonesia, Iran, Malaysia, Nigeria, Pakistan, Peru, Spain, South Korea, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
The book Psychological Assessment and Interventions for Individuals Linked to Radicalization and Lone Wolf Terrorism aims to cover a gap in understanding psychiatric aspects of radicalization and the lone-wolf phenomenon. Since recently, literature and research have treated the topic under the social assumption that a radicalized individual is only guided by personal, social, and ethnic reasons to commit a radicalized act. We took a different route to analyze the phenomenon, prompted by our clinical experience of mental health professionals working in the territory, being in contact with radicalized people living in our towns and problematic suburbs or prisons. The book is written in a comprehensible language. It is addressed to those working to prevent radicalization and terrorism in their territory and needing a practical tool for understanding and preventing the phenomena.
This book presents an introduction to Matlab for students and professionals working in the field of engineering and other scientific and technical sectors, who have an interest or need to apply Matlab as a tool for undertaking simulations and formulating solutions for the problems concerned.
Sustainability, social justice and legitimate governance are some of the sternest challenges facing the architects, designers and engineers of the ongoing "Digital Transformation" to the "Digital Society".
This revolutionary two-volume work uncovers a wide range of amazing paradigms, algorithms, architectures and implementations of computation far outside the comfort zone of mainstream, conventional, computing sciences.
The dynamic world of the very small is the focus of a new textbook, “Stochastic Thermodynamics: An Introduction”, co-authored by Luca Peliti, professor emeritus of statistical mechanics at the University of Naples Federico II in Italy, and Simone Pigolotti, associate professor and head of the Biological Complexity Unit at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (OIST).
A new book Power, for All: How It Really Works and Why It’s Everyone’s Business offers a timely, democratized vision of power. Everyone can understand how power operates, and research shows that once you understand, you can take action to improve life for yourself and others.
Most "how to learn" books focus only on study techniques. However, knowing these study techniques doesn't guarantee they will be successfully implemented. Based on Professor Kamei's popular undergraduate course at the National University of Singapore, the author shares his unique perspective as an educator and physician to provide a strategic approach to learning that will benefit students of all ages looking to optimize their learning.
Though a lack of iron is a factor limiting algal growth in the oceans, more dissolved iron in the ocean East of Greenland due to the melting of the Greenland Ice Sheet does not lead to more algae there. Off the coast of Antarctica, on the other hand, algae do profit from more dissolved iron in the water as a consequence of melting ice. The cause of this difference is the fact that near Antarctica, organic molecules help keep the iron in solution, while near Greenland, they don’t, NIOZ researcher Indah Ardiningsih discovered.
Education expert Yong Zhao has authored "Learners Without Borders: New Learning Pathways for all Students," a book that argues educational reform efforts have failed and will continue to do so. Instead, American schools and educators should transform education by helping make students owners of their learning in a global sense; and that the pandemic may have provided a great opportunity to do just that.
South Korea's Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) has announced that a recent publication by its faculty members sets out the key research directions and new alternatives towards becoming carbon neutral by 2050.
