This book offers a brief overview of the Social Web and Semantic Web before it describes popular social media and social networking applications, including their strengths and limitations. It also describes useful applications of Semantic Web technology.
This book tackles the design challenges of the era of billion-transistor SoCs, offering fundamental concepts and coding needed for robust, functional designs. Covers minimizing complexity in RTL code, and tradeoffs between RTL and high-level (C-based) design.
This book provides a series of case studies which give examples of real benefits to be derived from the adoption of semantic web based ontologies in real world situations, such as telecommunication, B2B integration, tourism, education and more.
IT systems often go over budget, overrun production deadlines and then fail to work properly. This book argues that the fundamental nature of programming technology itself is the real culprit; it promises perfection but can only deliver emergent chaos.
Our rising dependency on computers leaves us increasingly open to cyber-attacks by criminals and the state. This book addresses the many interdisciplinary issues affecting the uneasy relationship between information technology and the information society.
This book presents a multidisciplinary and multisectoral perspective on the nature of service systems, on research and practice in service and on the future directions to advance service science. It offers theory-based research with actionable results.
Building on the concept of the naturoid, this book examines activities aimed at the reproduction of something existing in nature, whose reproduction, through construction strategies different from natural ones, we consider useful, appealing or interesting.
The P=NP question is one of the great problems of science, which has intrigued computer scientists and mathematicians for decades. This guide, originating from a weblog written by the author, covers historical developments and latest approaches to the problem.
