Visual Insights: A Practical Guide to Making Sense of Data (The MIT Press)
Visual Insights: A Practical Guide to Making Sense of Data (The MIT Press)

A guide to the basics of information visualization that teaches nonprogrammers how to use advanced data mining and visualization techniques to design insightful visualizations.

In the age of Big Data, the tools of information visualization offer us a macroscope to help us make sense of the avalanche of data...

Privacy on the Line: The Politics of Wiretapping and Encryption
Privacy on the Line: The Politics of Wiretapping and Encryption
In the spring of 1993, the White House announced an unprecedented plan for both promoting and
controlling the use of secret codes to keep communications private. The plan, formally called key
escrow but popularly known as "Clipper" after its star component, the Clipper chip, was to adopt a
new federal standard for

Automatic Algorithm Recognition and Replacement: A New Approach to Program Optimization
Automatic Algorithm Recognition and Replacement: A New Approach to Program Optimization
Optimizing compilers have a fundamental problem. No matter how powerful their optimizations
are, they are no substitute for good application algorithms. Consider the case of
sorting. For sufficiently large data sets, a merge sort algorithm compiled with a less powerful
optimizer will always out-perform a selection sort algorithm

Principles of Data Mining (Adaptive Computation and Machine Learning)
Principles of Data Mining (Adaptive Computation and Machine Learning)

The growing interest in data mining is motivated by a common problem across disciplines: how does one store, access, model, and ultimately describe and understand very large data sets? Historically, different aspects of data mining have been addressed independently by different disciplines. This is the first truly...

Multiagent Systems: A Modern Approach to Distributed Artificial Intelligence
Multiagent Systems: A Modern Approach to Distributed Artificial Intelligence
The study of multiagent systems began in the field of distributed artificial intelligence (DAI) about 20 years
ago. Today these systems are not simply a research topic, but are also beginning to become an important subject of
academic teaching and industrial and commercial application. While there are several high-quality collections of
...
How to Design Programs: An Introduction to Programming and Computing
How to Design Programs: An Introduction to Programming and Computing
This introduction to programming places computer science in the core of a liberal arts education. Unlike other introductory books, it focuses on the program design process. This approach fosters a variety of skills--critical reading, analytical thinking, creative synthesis, and attention to detail - that are important for everyone, not just future...
An Introduction to Genetic Algorithms (Complex Adaptive Systems)
An Introduction to Genetic Algorithms (Complex Adaptive Systems)

Science arises from the very human desire to understand and control the world. Over the course of history, we
humans have gradually built up a grand edifice of knowledge that enables us to predict, to varying extents, the
weather, the motions of the planets, solar and lunar eclipses, the courses of diseases, the rise and fall

C# Precisely
C# Precisely
This book describes the programming language C# (pronounced “c sharp”), version 2.0. It is a quick reference for the reader who has already learnt or is learning C# from a standard textbook and who wants to know the language in more detail. It should be particularly useful for readers who know the Java programming language and who want...
Computability and Complexity: From a Programming Perspective (Foundations of Computing)
Computability and Complexity: From a Programming Perspective (Foundations of Computing)
Computability and complexity theory should be of central concern to practitioners as well as theorists. Unfortunately, however, the field is known for its impenetrability. Neil Jones's goal as an educator and author is to build a bridge between computability and complexity theory and other areas of computer science, especially programming. In a...
Software Abstractions : Logic, Language, and Analysis
Software Abstractions : Logic, Language, and Analysis
Software is built on abstractions. Pick the right ones, and programming
will flow naturally from design; modules will have small and simple interfaces;
and new functionality will more likely fit in without extensive
reorganization. Pick the wrong ones, and programming will be a series
of nasty surprises: interfaces will become

Advanced Topics in Types and Programming Languages
Advanced Topics in Types and Programming Languages
Work in type systems for programming languages now touches many parts
of computer science, from language design and implementation to software
engineering, network security, databases, and analysis of concurrent and distributed
systems. The aim of this book, together with its predecessor, Types
and Programming Languages (Pierce

Learning with Kernels: Support Vector Machines, Regularization, Optimization, and Beyond
Learning with Kernels: Support Vector Machines, Regularization, Optimization, and Beyond
In the 1990s, a new type of learning algorithm was developed, based on results from statistical learning theory: the Support Vector Machine (SVM). This gave rise to a new class of theoretically elegant learning machines that use a central concept of SVMs—-kernels--for a number of learning tasks. Kernel machines provide a modular framework...
