Thinking as Computation: A First Course (MIT Press)
Thinking as Computation: A First Course (MIT Press)

This book guides students through an exploration of the idea that thinking might be understood as a form of computation. Students make the connection between thinking and computing by learning to write computer programs for a variety of tasks that require thought, including solving puzzles, understanding natural language, recognizing objects...

Gaussian Processes for Machine Learning (Adaptive Computation and Machine Learning)
Gaussian Processes for Machine Learning (Adaptive Computation and Machine Learning)
Gaussian processes (GPs) provide a principled, practical, probabilistic approach to learning in kernel machines. GPs have received increased attention in the machine-learning community over the past decade, and this book provides a long-needed systematic and unified treatment of theoretical and practical aspects of GPs in machine learning. The...
Spinning the Semantic Web: Bringing the World Wide Web to Its Full Potential
Spinning the Semantic Web: Bringing the World Wide Web to Its Full Potential

The Semantic Web is the realization of an aspect of the Web that was part of the original hopes and dreams of 1989, but whose development has, until now, taken a back seat to the Web of multimedia human-readable material. Even though at the first WWW conference, in 1994, I ended my talk with a few slides about the Semantic Web, the steps...

Foundations of Cognitive Psychology: Core Readings
Foundations of Cognitive Psychology: Core Readings
Scientists from many disciplines, including physics, chemistry, biology, and neuroscience, contribute to the study of cognition. Cognitive psychology, the science of the human mind and of how people process information, is at the core of empirical investigations into the nature of mind and thought. This anthology is based on the assumption that...
Quantum Computing without Magic: Devices (Scientific and Engineering Computation)
Quantum Computing without Magic: Devices (Scientific and Engineering Computation)
"Quantum Computing without Magic gives a refreshing and down to earth approach to quantum information as well as quantum devices which will have a fundamental impact on the technology of the 21st century."
Raymond Laflamme, Canada Research Chair in Quantum Information, and Director, Institute for

Introduction to Machine Learning (Adaptive Computation and Machine Learning)
Introduction to Machine Learning (Adaptive Computation and Machine Learning)
The goal of machine learning is to program computers to use example data or past experience to solve a given problem. Many successful applications of machine learning exist already, including systems that analyze past sales data to predict customer behavior, recognize faces or spoken speech, optimize robot behavior so that a task can be completed...
Document Engineering: Analyzing and Designing Documents for Business Informatics and Web Services
Document Engineering: Analyzing and Designing Documents for Business Informatics and Web Services
Much of the business transacted on the Web today takes place through information exchanges made possible by using documents as interfaces. For example, what seems to be a simple purchase from an online bookstore actually involves at least three different business collaborations -- between the customer and the online catalog to select a book;...
Introduction to Algorithms, Third Edition
Introduction to Algorithms, Third Edition

Some books on algorithms are rigorous but incomplete; others cover masses of material but lack rigor. Introduction to Algorithms uniquely combines rigor and comprehensiveness. The book covers a broad range of algorithms in depth, yet makes their design and analysis accessible to all levels of readers. Each chapter is relatively...

Access Denied: The Practice and Policy of Global Internet Filtering (Information Revolution and Global Politics)
Access Denied: The Practice and Policy of Global Internet Filtering (Information Revolution and Global Politics)
This book is a testament to collaboration. About five years ago, it became clear to several of us—at the University of Cambridge, Harvard Law School, and the University of Toronto—that we might accomplish more by working together, across institutions and continents, than we could by going it alone. Since that time, the Oxford Internet...

Simply Scheme: Introducing Computer Science
Simply Scheme: Introducing Computer Science

An introductory-level text for students who are not majoring in computer science as well as for computer science majors with no prior programming experience, Simply Scheme teaches computer science from a functional/symbolic point of view. It provides a solid platform from which students can go on to study the seminal work Structure and...

Software Engineering for Internet Applications
Software Engineering for Internet Applications
This is the textbook for the MIT course ‘‘Software Engineering for Internet
Applications.’’ The course is intended for juniors and seniors in computer
science. We assume that they know how to write a computer program and
debug it. We do not assume knowledge of any particular programming languages,...
