Book Description to Finelybook sorting
Human-Machine Shared Contexts considers the foundations, metrics, and applications of human-machine systems. Editors and authors debate whether machines, humans, and systems should speak only to each other, only to humans, or to both and how. The book establishes the meaning and operation of “shared contexts” between humans and machines; it also explores how human-machine systems affect targeted audiences (researchers, machines, robots, users) and society, as well as future ecosystems composed of humans and machines.
This book explores how user interventions may improve the context for autonomous machines operating in unfamiliar environments or when experiencing unanticipated events; how autonomous machines can be taught to explain contexts By 作者:reasoning, inferences, or causality, and decisions to humans relying on intuition; and for mutual context, how these machines may interdependently affect human awareness, teams and society, and how these “machines” may be affected in turn. In short, can context be mutually constructed and shared between machines and humans? The editors are interested in whether shared context follows when machines begin to think, or, like humans, develop subjective states that allow them to monitor and report on their interpretations of reality, forcing scientists to rethink the general model of human social behavior. If dependence on machine learning continues or grows, the public will also be interested in what happens to context shared By 作者:users, teams of humans and machines, or society when these machines malfunction. As scientists and engineers “think through this change in human terms,” the ultimate goal is for AI to advance the performance of autonomous machines and teams of humans and machines for the betterment of society wherever these machines interact with humans or other machines.
This book will be essential reading for professional, industrial, and military computer scientists and engineers; machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) scientists and engineers, especially those engaged in research on autonomy, computational context, and human-machine shared contexts; advanced robotics scientists and engineers; scientists working with or interested in data issues for autonomous systems such as with the use of scarce data for training and operations with and without user interventions; social psychologists, scientists and physical research scientists pursuing models of shared context; modelers of the internet of things (IOT); systems of systems scientists and engineers and economists; scientists and engineers working with agent-based models (ABMs); policy specialists concerned with the impact of AI and ML on society and civilization; network scientists and engineers; applied mathematicians (e.g., holon theory, information theory); computational linguists; and blockchain scientists and engineers.

Book Description to Finelybook sorting
Deep learning, a branch of Artificial Intelligence and machine learning, has led to new approaches to solving problems in a variety of domains including data science, data analytics and biomedical engineering. Deep Learning for Data Analytics: Foundations, Biomedical Applications and Challenges provides readers with a focused approach for the design and implementation of deep learning concepts using data analytics techniques in large scale environments. Deep learning algorithms are based on artificial neural network models to cascade multiple layers of nonlinear processing, which aids in feature extraction and learning in supervised and unsupervised ways, including classification and pattern analysis. Deep learning transforms data through a cascade of layers, helping systems analyze and process complex data sets. Deep learning algorithms extract high level complex data and process these complex sets to relatively simpler ideas formulated in the preceding level of the hierarchy. The authors of this book focus on suitable data analytics methods to solve complex real world problems such as medical image recognition, biomedical engineering, and object tracking using deep learning methodologies. The book provides a pragmatic direction for researchers who wish to analyze large volumes of data for business, engineering, and biomedical applications. Deep learning architectures including deep neural networks, recurrent neural networks, and deep belief networks can be used to help resolve problems in applications such as natural language processing, speech recognition, computer vision, bioinoformatics, audio recognition, drug design, and medical image analysis.

Presents the latest advances in Deep Learning for data analytics and biomedical engineering applications.
Discusses Deep Learning techniques as they are being applied in the real world of biomedical engineering and data science, including Deep Learning networks, deep feature learning, deep learning toolboxes, performance evaluation, Deep Learning optimization, deep auto-encoders, and deep neural networks
Provides readers with an introduction to Deep Learning, along with coverage of deep belief networks, convolutional neural networks, Restricted Boltzmann Machines, data analytics basics, enterprise data science, predictive analysis, optimization for Deep Learning, and feature selection using Deep Learning
