Workflow Management: Models, Methods, and Systems (Cooperative Information Systems)
Workflow Management: Models, Methods, and Systems (Cooperative Information Systems)
This book offers a comprehensive introduction to workflow management, the management of business processes with information technology. By defining, analyzing, and redesigning an organization's resources and operations, workflow management systems ensure that the right information reaches the right person or computer application at the right time....
Understanding Knowledge as a Commons: From Theory to Practice
Understanding Knowledge as a Commons: From Theory to Practice
Knowledge in digital form offers unprecedented access to information through the Internet but at the same time is subject to ever-greater restrictions through intellectual property legislation, overpatenting, licensing, overpricing, and lack of preservation. Looking at knowledge as a commons--as a shared resource--allows us to understand both its...
Designing with Blends: Conceptual Foundations of Human-Computer Interaction and Software Engineering
Designing with Blends: Conceptual Foundations of Human-Computer Interaction and Software Engineering
The evolution of the concept of mind in cognitive science over the past 25 years creates new ways to think about the interaction of people and computers. New ideas about embodiment, metaphor as a fundamental cognitive process, and conceptual integration--a blending of older concepts that gives rise to new, emergent properties--have become...
Designing Sociable Robots (Intelligent Robotics and Autonomous Agents)
Designing Sociable Robots (Intelligent Robotics and Autonomous Agents)
Cynthia Breazeal here presents her vision of the sociable robot of the future, a synthetic creature and not merely a sophisticated tool. A sociable robot will be able to understand us, to communicate and interact with us, to learn from us and grow with us. It will be socially intelligent in a humanlike way. Eventually sociable robots will assist us...
The Neural Simulation Language: A System for Brain Modeling
The Neural Simulation Language: A System for Brain Modeling
The Neural Simulation Language (NSL), developed by Alfredo Weitzenfeld, Michael Arbib, and Amanda Alexander, provides a simulation environment for modular brain modeling. NSL is an object-oriented language offering object-oriented protocols applicable to all levels of neural simulation. One of NSL's main strengths is that it allows for realistic...
An Introduction to Distributed Algorithms
An Introduction to Distributed Algorithms
"Barbosa makes the otherwise difficult subject of distributed algorithms very enjoyable and attractive to both students and researchers. The leading intuitive discussion of each algorithm is so very well organized and clearly written that a reader can, without the slightest effort, have a clear picture of it. An ideal textbook for an...
Heterogeneous Agent Systems
Heterogeneous Agent Systems
Software agents are the latest advance in the trend toward smaller, modular pieces of code, where each module performs a well-defined, focused task or set of tasks. Programmed to interact with and provide services to other agents, including humans, software agents act autonomously with prescribed backgrounds, beliefs, and operations. Systems of...
Sharing Expertise: Beyond Knowledge Management
Sharing Expertise: Beyond Knowledge Management
The field of knowledge management focuses on how organizations can most effectively store, manage, retrieve, and enlarge their intellectual properties. The repository view of knowledge management emphasizes the gathering, providing, and filtering of explicit knowledge. The information in a repository has the advantage of being easily transferable...
An Introduction to AI Robotics (Intelligent Robotics and Autonomous Agents)
An Introduction to AI Robotics (Intelligent Robotics and Autonomous Agents)
This text covers all the material needed to understand the principles behind the AI approach to robotics and to program an artificially intelligent robot for applications involving sensing, navigation, planning, and uncertainty. Robin Murphy is extremely effective at combining theoretical and practical rigor with a light narrative touch. In the...
New Directions in Statistical Signal Processing: From Systems to Brains (Neural Information Processing)
New Directions in Statistical Signal Processing: From Systems to Brains (Neural Information Processing)
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...
Strategic Computing: DARPA and the Quest for Machine Intelligence, 1983-1993 (History of Computing)
Strategic Computing: DARPA and the Quest for Machine Intelligence, 1983-1993 (History of Computing)
This is the story of an extraordinary effort by the U.S. Department of Defense to hasten the advent of "machines that think." From 1983 to 1993, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) spent an extra $1 billion on computer research aimed at achieving artificial intelligence. The Strategic Computing Initiative (SCI) was...
Beyond the Desktop Metaphor: Designing Integrated Digital Work Environments
Beyond the Desktop Metaphor: Designing Integrated Digital Work Environments
The computer's metaphorical desktop, with its onscreen windows and hierarchy of folders, is the only digital work environment most users and designers have ever known. Yet empirical studies show that the traditional desktop design does not provide sufficient support for today's real-life tasks involving collaboration, multitasking, multiple roles,...
