Download Fuzzy Theory Systems: Techniques and Applications by Leondes C.T. PDF

By Leondes C.T.

Functions of fuzzy thought are maturing and multiplying at an attractive cost as a result crucial function that "fuzzy good judgment" performs within the powerful layout of many business and decision-support platforms. not like conventional desktop good judgment concerning basically real and fake judgements, a fuzzy good judgment process makes the best option after weighing more than a few contributing variables. during this manner, the implementation of fuzzy common sense algorithms in hardware/software structures achieves the easiest ends up in a wide selection of useful, real-world purposes. This entire set of volumes provides authoritative chapters starting from basic implementation and modeling options to significant commercial, production, and advertisement functions. assurance comprises photo, visible, and trend processing, keep watch over tools and purposes, mixed fuzzy neural and adaptive fuzzy platforms, and different vital purposes parts akin to probability overview. the data and examples supplied can help the reader to grasp the basic trade-offs that consultant structures layout in keeping with program standards and cost-performance concerns.

Download Management of Speech and Video Telephony Quality in by Blażej Lewcio PDF

By Blażej Lewcio

This e-book exhibits how networking examine and caliber engineering could be mixed to effectively deal with the transmission caliber whilst speech and video telephony is introduced in heterogeneous instant networks. Nomadic use of providers calls for clever administration of ongoing transmission, and to make the easiest of accessible assets many primary trade-offs has to be thought of. community insurance as opposed to throughput and reliability of a connection is one key element, potency as opposed to robustness of sign compression is one other. in spite of the fact that, to effectively deal with providers, user-perceived caliber of expertise (QoE) in heterogeneous networks needs to be identified, and the notion of caliber adjustments has to be understood. those concerns are addressed during this booklet, particularly targeting the notion of caliber alterations because of switching among different networks, speech and video formats, and encoding bit charges in the course of lively calls.

Download ''Raw Data'' Is an Oxymoron by Lisa Gitelman PDF

By Lisa Gitelman

We dwell within the period of massive facts, with garage and transmission means measured not only in terabytes yet in petabytes (where peta- denotes a quadrillion, or 1000 trillion). info assortment is continuing or even insidious, with each click on and each ''like'' kept someplace for whatever. This ebook reminds us that facts is something yet ''raw,'' that we cannot think about information as a traditional source yet as a cultural person who has to be generated, safe, and interpreted. The book's essays describe 8 episodes within the historical past of information from the predigital to the electronic. jointly they tackle such matters because the ways in which other kinds of information and various domain names of inquiry are jointly defining; how info are variously ''cooked'' within the techniques in their assortment and use; and conflicts over what can -- or cannot -- be ''reduced'' to facts. individuals talk about the highbrow heritage of information as an idea; describe early monetary modeling and a few strange assets for astronomical info; notice the prehistory of the database in newspaper clippings and index playing cards; and look at modern ''dataveillance'' of our on-line behavior in addition to the complexity of medical information curation.
