'I can't think of a better way to learn about artificial intelligence, and I've never had so much fun along the way' Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Originals and Option B AI is everywhere. It powers the autocorrect function of your iPhone, helps Google Translate understand the complexity of language, and interprets your behaviour to decide which of your friends' Facebook posts you most want to see. In the coming years, it'll perform medical diagnoses and drive your car - and maybe even help our authors write the first lines of their novels. But how does it actually work? Scientist and engineer, Janelle Shane, is the go-to contributor about computer science for the New York Times, Slate, and the New Yorker. Through her hilarious experiments, real-world examples, and illuminating cartoons, she explains how AI understands our world, and what it gets wrong. More than just a working knowledge of AI, she hands readers the tools to be skeptical about claims of a smarter future. A comprehensive study of the cutting-edge technology that will soon power our world, You Look Like a Thing and I Love You is an accessible and hilarious exploration of the future of technology and society. It's Astrophysics for People In a Hurry meets Thing Explainer: an approachable guide to a fascinating scientific topic, presented with clarity, levity, and brevity by an expert in the field with a powerful and growing platform.

9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

An audacious, irreverent investigation of human behavior - and a first look at a revolution in the making. Our personal data has been used to spy on us, hire and fire us, and sell us stuff we don’t need. In Dataclysm, Christian Rudder uses it to show us who we truly are. For centuries, we've relied on polling or small-scale lab experiments to study human behavior. Today, a new approach is possible. As we live more of our lives online, researchers can finally observe us directly, in vast numbers, and without filters. Data scientists have become the new demographers. In this daring and original book, Rudder explains how Facebook "likes" can predict, with surprising accuracy, a person’s sexual orientation and even intelligence; how attractive women receive exponentially more interview requests; and why you must have haters to be hot. He charts the rise and fall of America’s most reviled word through Google Search and examines the new dynamics of collaborative rage on Twitter. He shows how people express themselves, both privately and publicly. What is the least Asian thing you can say? Do people bathe more in Vermont or New Jersey? What do black women think about Simon & Garfunkel? (Hint: they don't think about Simon & Garfunkel.) Rudder also traces human migration over time, showing how groups of people move from certain small towns to the same big cities across the globe. And he grapples with the challenge of maintaining privacy in a world where these explorations are possible. Visually arresting and full of wit and insight, Dataclysm is a new way of seeing ourselves - a brilliant alchemy, in which math is made human and numbers become the narrative of our time. 1.

ELT in Oman and India:
36,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

English Language Teaching (ELT) has been evolving, in the hands of Teachers, throughout its travel across the globe. It becomes interestingly unique in each country as the learners of the East, the West and the Middle East are different in terms of Learning Strategies, Acquisition, and Applications. It can be challenging for Teachers and Trainers in EFL, ESL, ESP situations apart from TESOL. The above fields of study had gone further with Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL), Computer Aided Instruction (CAI) and Computer Mediated Communication (CMC). Now it's time for ELT through Social Media like WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter and so on, for the Young and Adult Learners who cannot imagine life without Smart Phones and iPads. This book in your hands, ELT in Oman and India: Experiments in EFL, ESL, ESP and CALL, presents some practical aspects of the above including Action and Applied research conducted by the Author at various schools and higher educational institutions (2001-2016) in the Middle East (Oman) and SAARC countries (India and the Maldives). It is useful for teachers, trainers, researchers, administrators and students who wish to update their skills and knowledge.

Camgirls
29,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book is a critical and ethnographic study of camgirls: women who broadcast themselves over the web for the general public while trying to cultivate a measure of celebrity in the process. The book's over-arching question is, "What does it mean for feminists to speak about the personal as political in a networked society that encourages women to 'represent' through confession, celebrity, and sexual display, but punishes too much visibility with conservative censure and backlash?" The narrative follows that of the camgirl phenomenon, beginning with the earliest experiments in personal homecamming and ending with the newest forms of identity and community being articulated through social networking sites like Live Journal, YouTube, MySpace, and Facebook. It is grounded in interviews, performance analysis of events transpiring between camgirls and their viewers, and the author's own experiences as an ersatz camgirl while conducting the research.

Multi-Collaborative Filtering Trust Network For...

Nowadays, Recommendation Systems (RS) play an important role in the e-Commerce business and they have been proposed to exploit the potential of social networks by filtering information and offering useful recommendations to customers. As the personalization service is built to present the users with highly relevant set of items, the customer loyalty of the web companies can be improved. Collaborative Filtering (CF) is believed to be a suitable underlying technique for recommendation systems based on social networks, since it harvests information both from similar products and from peer users to infer a suggested item out of many for a user. Meanwhile, social networks provide the needed collaborative social environment. The system we proposed here is the Multi-Collaborative Filtering Trust Network Recommendation System, which combined multiple sources, by using MovieLens, Delicious and Facebook datasets, measured trust, temporal relation and similarity factors. After series of experiments, we found that the performance of recommendation system with considering above four aspects is much better than considering any other single/combined aspects.

Learning Users' Profiles in Location-based Soci...
76,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In recent years we have witnessed a flourish of location-based social media, such as Foursquare, Gowalla, Facebook Place, etc, which are collectively termed as location-based social networks (LBSNs). These services offer more location-tagged information to people, helping them to make better informed decisions on where to eat, sleep, shop and relax within the local context. The boom of LBSNs opens up a vast range of possibilities to study location-oriented human interactions and collective behaviours in an unprecedented scale. In this book, a community learning framework in LBSNs is introduced. It first detects and understands user communities based on the heterogeneous interactions in LBSNs. It then studies community matching across geographical regions in the context of generating personalized recommendations of locally interesting venues to tourists. A large-scale, representative and real world dataset is sampled from Foursquare and extensive experiments are conducted to verify the effectiveness of the proposed approaches.
