Download Mind Amplifier: Can Our Digital Tools Make Us Smarter? by Howard Rheingold PDF

By Howard Rheingold

Note: this can be a retail PDF from OverDrive, but the dossier as released is simply an internet print-out of the book's content material, with out additional formatting.

Instead of asking no matter if the internet is making us silly, Howard Rheingold turns that question round and asks how designing and utilizing electronic media mindfully can make us smarter. What if people might construct instruments that leverage our skill to imagine, converse, and cooperate? people invented social studying, speech, writing, alphabets, printing, desktops, and the net, this means that we must always be systematically directing the evolution of highbrow augmentation.

Mind Amplifier: Can Our electronic instruments Make Us Smarter? examines the origins of electronic mind-extending instruments, after which lays out the rules for his or her destiny. Rheingold proposes an utilized, interdisciplinary technological know-how of brain amplification. He additionally unveils a brand new protocol for constructing techno-cognitive-social applied sciences that embody empathy, mindfulness, and compassion — components missing from current electronic mind-tools.

Download Grey Systems: Theory and Applications by Sifeng Liu PDF

By Sifeng Liu

Due to inherent obstacles in human sensing organs, so much info accumulated for numerous reasons comprise uncertainties. Even on the infrequent events while exact facts can be found, the honest predictions derived at the info are inclined to create chaotic effects. So, to successfully technique and make feel out of accessible facts, we'd like the right way to care for uncertainty inherently latest contained in the info. The reason of this monograph is to discover the elemental concept, tools, and methods of sensible software of gray platforms conception, initiated by way of Professor Deng Julong in 1982. This quantity provides lots of the contemporary advances of the idea entire through students from worldwide. From learning this ebook, the reader won't in simple terms collect an total wisdom of this new idea but additionally have the ability to stick to the most up-tp-date study actions. All examples offered are in keeping with functional purposes of the idea whilst pressing real-life difficulties needed to be addressed. final yet now not the least, this e-book concludes with 3 appendices. the 1st one compares gray structures idea and period research whereas revealing the truth that period research is part of gray arithmetic. the second one appendix offers an array of alternative techniques of learning uncertainties. And, the final appendix exhibits how uncertainties seem utilizing normal structures approach.

Download Crystal Growth - From Fundamentals to Technology by Georg Müller, Jean-Jacques Métois, Peter Rudolph PDF

By Georg Müller, Jean-Jacques Métois, Peter Rudolph

The e-book comprises five chapters with 19 contributions shape the world over good said specialists in quite a few fields of crystal development. the themes are starting from basics (thermodynamic of epitaxy progress, kinetics, morphology, modeling) to new crystal fabrics (carbon nanocrystals and nanotubes, organic crystals), to know-how (Silicon Czochralski progress, oxide development, III-IV epitaxy) and characterization (point defects, X-ray imaging, in-situ STM). It covers the remedy of bulk progress in addition to epitaxy by way of anorganic and natural fabrics.

Download Applications of Cryogenic Technology by Ray Radebaugh (auth.), J. Patrick Kelley (eds.) PDF

By Ray Radebaugh (auth.), J. Patrick Kelley (eds.)

Applications of Cryogenic expertise, Vol. 10, is the complaints from the part of the convention CRYO-90 backed by way of the Cryogenic Society of the United States (CSA). CRYO-90, hung on the campus of the nation college of latest York, Binghamton, long island, was once an strange interdisciplinary occasion, drawing from the lifestyles sciences in addition to the actual technology and engineering components of the low temperature group. Co-sponsoring CRYO-90 with CSA have been the Society for Cryobiology and the Symposium on Invertebrate and Plant chilly Hardiness. those latter enterprises introduced an exhilarating constructing box to the convention, a box whose exploration will result in the betterment of all mankind via greater cryosurgical and organ maintenance options as well as stronger agricultural and herd yields less than severe stipulations. particular ambitions of the cryobiological group are cryopreservation, the arrest and restoration of dwelling procedures of cells, tissues and organs; and cryosurgery - the neighborhood cryodestruction of diseased cells whereas conserving the fit surrounding tissue. those objectives current nice technological demanding situations. The technological necessities of the cryobiologist comprise the facility to chill tissues 6 at premiums of 10 levels consistent with moment (vitrification), to thaw frozen tissue with out harmful the fragile cells, to freeze dry tissue utilizing molecular distillation (vacuum) drying, to supercool telephone constructions less than O°C with no freezing, and to effectively shop the preserved tissues and organs for any required size of time.

Download Syntaxbasierte Programmierwerkzeuge by Lothar Schmitz PDF

By Lothar Schmitz

Gegenstand dieses Buchs sind die theoretischen Grundlagen, die guy braucht, um Compiler-Compiler sinnvoll einsetzen und die Leistungsfähigkeit solcher Werkzeuge richtig beurteilen zu können. Dazu gehören neben attributierten Grammatiken als Beschreibungsmittel die heute verwendeten Syntaxanalyse- und Attributauswertungsverfahren. Das sind die LL(1)-Analyse und die verschiedenen Varianten oder LR-Analyse sowie dynamische, statische und inkrementelle Attributauswerter. Besonders ausführlich wird das Schreiben attributierter Grammatiken behandelt: Dabei müssen Probleme in korrekte und verarbeitungsgerechte Formulierungen umgesetzt werden. Die Theorie wird weitgehend informell motiviert und an vielen Beispielen dargestellt. Zu zentralen oder methodisch interessanten Sachverhalten findet guy vollständige Beweise. Damit soll ein tieferes Verständnis für die Arbeitsweise praktischer Systeme wie LEX/ YACC gefördert und die Leser angeregt werden, sich noch eingehender mit deren mathematischen Grundlagen zu beschäftigen. Ein größeres Beispiel aus dem Bereich der Dokumentenverarbeitung illustriert die verschiedenen Einsatzmöglichkeiten von attributierten Grammatiken: Ob es um die Formatierung einer TeX-Quelldatei geht oder um die growth darin vorhandener Makros und Referenzen, ob die Quelle auf gewisse Eigenschaften hin geprüft oder das Ergebnis graphisch angezeigt werden soll, in all diesen Fällen läßt sich die Aufgabe mit einer geeigneten Attributierung adäquat lösen.

By Leonard Berliner, Heinz U. Lemke

This publication explores how PPPM, scientific perform, and easy examine will be most sensible served by means of details expertise (IT). A use-case used to be built for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). the topic used to be approached with 4 interrelated projects: (1) evaluate of scientific practices when it comes to HCC; (2) suggest an IT method when it comes to HCC, together with scientific selection aid and learn wishes; (3) make sure how a medical liver melanoma middle can give a contribution; and, (4) learn the improvements and influence that the 1st 3 initiatives can have at the administration of HCC. An IT method for customized drugs (ITS-PM) for HCC will give you the skill to spot and ensure the relative price of the vast variety of variables, together with medical overview of the sufferer -- practical prestige, liver functionality, measure of cirrhosis, and comorbidities; tumor biology, at a molecular, genetic and anatomic point; tumor burden and person sufferer reaction; clinical and operative remedies and their outcomes.
