Radioactive Waste Disposal at Sea: Public Ideas, Transnational Policy Entrepreneurs, and Environmental Regimes
Radioactive Waste Disposal at Sea: Public Ideas, Transnational Policy Entrepreneurs, and Environmental Regimes
"This book makes a significant contribution by showing that, under certain circumstances, regimes can be created and changed by a combination of powerful but highly oversimplified ‘public ideas’ and transnational political entrepreneurs. The work is original and the scholarship is sound beyond any question."

Advances in Minimum Description Length: Theory and Applications (Neural Information Processing)
Advances in Minimum Description Length: Theory and Applications (Neural Information Processing)
The process of inductive inference—to infer general laws and principles from particular instances—is the basis of statistical modeling, pattern recognition, and machine learning. The Minimum Descriptive Length (MDL) principle, a powerful method of inductive inference, holds that the best explanation, given a limited set of observed...

Communications Policy and Information Technology: Promises, Problems, Prospects (Telecommunications Policy Research Conference)
Communications Policy and Information Technology: Promises, Problems, Prospects (Telecommunications Policy Research Conference)
New technologies, although developed with optimism, often fall short of their predicted potential and create new problems. Communications technologies are no different. Their utopian proponents claim that universal access to advanced communications technologies can help to feed the hungry, cure the sick, educate the illiterate, improve the global...

Learning Machine Translation (Neural Information Processing)
Learning Machine Translation (Neural Information Processing)
The Internet gives us access to a wealth of information in languages we don't understand. The investigation of automated or semi-automated approaches to translation has become a thriving research field with enormous commercial potential. This volume investigates how machine learning techniques can improve statistical machine translation, currently...
Design on the Edge: The Making of a High-Performance Building
Design on the Edge: The Making of a High-Performance Building
This is the story of a small building in Ohio that was one of the first, if not the first, substantially green or high-performance buildings on a college campus. It spans the decade between 1995 and 2005. In that time, Americans impeached a president, balanced the federal budget and then unbalanced it again, witnessed the largest corporate...
Conceptual Analysis and Philosophical Naturalism (Bradford Books)
Conceptual Analysis and Philosophical Naturalism (Bradford Books)
Many philosophical naturalists eschew analysis in favor of discovering metaphysical truths from the a posteriori, contending that analysis does not lead to philosophical insight. A countercurrent to this approach seeks to reconcile a certain account of conceptual analysis with philosophical naturalism; prominent and influential proponents of this...
Service-Oriented Computing (Cooperative Information Systems)
Service-Oriented Computing (Cooperative Information Systems)
Service-Oriented Computing (SOC) promises a world of cooperating services loosely connected, creating dynamic business processes and agile applications that span organizations and platforms.

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...
Relationscapes: Movement, Art, Philosophy (Technologies of Lived Abstraction)
Relationscapes: Movement, Art, Philosophy (Technologies of Lived Abstraction)
With Relationscapes, Erin Manning offers a new philosophy of movement challenging the idea that movement is simple displacement in space, knowable only in terms of the actual. Exploring the relation between sensation and thought through the prisms of dance, cinema, art, and new media, Manning argues for the intensity of movement. From this...
