New Directions in Statistical Signal Processing: From Systems to Brains (Neural Information Processing)

Buy
Signal processing and neural computation have separately and significantly influenced many disciplines, but the cross-fertilization of the two fields has begun only recently. Research now shows that each has much to teach the other, as we see highly sophisticated kinds of signal processing and elaborate hierachical levels of neural computation performed side by side in the brain. In New Directions in Statistical Signal Processing, leading researchers from both signal processing and neural computation present new work that aims to promote interaction between the two disciplines.

The book's 14 chapters, almost evenly divided between signal processing and neural computation, begin with the brain and move on to communication, signal processing, and learning systems. They examine such topics as how computational models help us understand the brain's information processing, how an intelligent machine could solve the "cocktail party problem" with "active audition" in a noisy environment, graphical and network structure modeling approaches, uncertainty in network communications, the geometric approach to blind signal processing, game-theoretic learning algorithms, and observable operator models (OOMs) as an alternative to hidden Markov models (HMMs).

Social, Ethical and Policy Implications of Information Technology
Social, Ethical and Policy Implications of Information Technology

Legal and ethical issues have become a standard part of engineering and business schools’ curricula. This has not been the case for computer science or management information systems programs although there has been increased emphasis on the social skills of these students. This leaves a frightening void in the student’s professional...

Beginning OpenOffice 3: From Novice to Professional
Beginning OpenOffice 3: From Novice to Professional
Office suites are one of the most popular types of software, and most computer users will, at some point, find themselves staring at the user interface of a word processor, spreadsheet, or presentation package. Traditionally, office suites have been quite expensive packages, but thanks to the generosity of Sun Microsystems and a massive community...
Web Based Project Coaching: Requirements, Design, Implementation and Evaluation of Online Coaching Services (Informationsmanagement und Computer Aided Team)
Web Based Project Coaching: Requirements, Design, Implementation and Evaluation of Online Coaching Services (Informationsmanagement und Computer Aided Team)

The traditional project coaching takes place mostly in a number of face-to-face coaching sessions. However, under conditions of time pressure in IT projects, a physical presence of coaches could form a bottleneck. These facts led to the idea of using Internet technologies to support  the project coaching. The benefits of the web based...


Analyzing Rater Agreement: Manifest Variable Methods
Analyzing Rater Agreement: Manifest Variable Methods
Agreement among raters is of great importance in many domains. For example, in medicine, diagnoses are often provided by more than one doctor to make sure the proposed treatment is optimal. In criminal trials, sentencing depends, among other things, on the complete agreement among the jurors. In observational studies, researchers increase...
Approximation Methods for Polynomial Optimization: Models, Algorithms, and Applications (SpringerBriefs in Optimization)
Approximation Methods for Polynomial Optimization: Models, Algorithms, and Applications (SpringerBriefs in Optimization)
Polynomial optimization, as its name suggests, is used to optimize a generic multivariate polynomial function, subject to some suitable polynomial equality and/or inequality constraints. Such problem formulation dates back to the nineteenth century when the relationship between nonnegative polynomials and sum of squares (SOS) was...
Hematologic Malignancies: Acute Leukemias
Hematologic Malignancies: Acute Leukemias

Better therapy of acute leukemias depends ultimately on better understanding of the distinction between leukemic and normal progenitor cells. This hugely important new book describes the current knowledge of acute leukemia biology and discusses new classification systems that have arisen as a result of emerging insights into pathogenesis....
