Tissue Engineering is a multidisciplinary subject involving scientists from different fields. With contributions by distinguished researchers, this book describes the state of the art on computational modelling and fabrication in tissue engineering.
This volume synthesises research and development in cognitive science and computing that deal with the automated assessment of human emotion. Affect computing systems are used in identifying terror threats, and are extensively used in marketing and finance. This volume comprises affect computing systems that learn to identify sentiment bearing sentences, and help in evaluating the polarity of opinion, positive/negative, in written text and speech.
Including the latest research in the field, this book examines key technologies such as facial expression recognition, face animation, emotional speech synthesis, and virtual reality. It covers hot topics which seek to feed into and augment current research.
Here is a practical introduction to agent-based modelling of socio-technical systems, based on methodology developed at TU Delft, which has been deployed in a number of case studies. Offers theory, methods and practical steps for creating real-world models.
Service-Oriented Computing (SOC) allows software development time to be shortened by the composition of existing services across the Internet. This book reviews the related technologies and offers insight into state-of-the-art research results in the field.
This book presents a step-by-step method for implementing the business rules approach to application development, covering the entire lifecycle from planning through rule discovery and analysis, rule and application design, to implementation and maintenance.
