Book Description to Finelybook sorting
This book presents and discusses innovative ideas in the design, modelling, implementation, and optimization of hardware platforms for neural networks.
The rapid growth of server, desktop, and embedded applications based on deep learning has brought about a renaissance in interest in neural networks, with applications including image and speech processing, data analytics, robotics, healthcare monitoring, and IoT solutions. Efficient implementation of neural networks to support complex deep learning-based applications is a complex challenge for embedded and mobile computing platforms with limited computational/storage resources and a tight power budget. Even for cloud-scale systems it is critical to select the right hardware configuration based on the neural network complexity and system constraints in order to increase power- and performance-efficiency.
Hardware Architectures for Deep Learning provides an overview of this new field, from principles to applications, for researchers, postgraduate students and engineers who work on learning-based services and hardware platforms.

Book Description to Finelybook sorting
Information Design provides citizens, business and government with a means of presenting and interacting with complex information. It embraces applications from wayfinding and map reading to forms design; from website and screen layout to instruction. Done well it can communicate across languages and cultures, convey complicated instructions, even change behaviours. Information Design offers an authoritative guide to this important multidisciplinary subject. The book weaves design theory and methods with case studies of professional practice from leading information designers across the world. The heavily illustrated text is rigorous yet readable and offers a single, must-have, reference to anyone interested in information design or any of its related disciplines such as interaction design and information architecture, information graphics, document design, universal design, service design, map-making and wayfinding.

Book Description to Finelybook sorting
Most microcontroller-based applications nowadays are large, complex, and may require several tasks to share the MCU in multitasking applications. Most modern high-speed microcontrollers support multitasking kernels with sophisticated scheduling algorithms so that many complex tasks can be executed on a priority basis. ARM-based Microcontroller Multitasking Projects: Using the FreeRTOS Multitasking Kernel explains how to multitask ARM Cortex microcontrollers using the FreeRTOS multitasking kernel.
The book describes in detail the features of multitasking operating systems such as scheduling, priorities, mailboxes, event flags, semaphores etc. before going onto present the highly popular FreeRTOS multitasking kernel.
Practical working real-time projects using the highly popular Clicker 2 for STM32 development board (which can easily be transferred to other boards) together with FreeRTOS are an essential feature of this book. Projects include: LEDs flashing at different rates; Refreshing of 7-segment LEDs; Mobile robot where different sensors are controlled By 作者:different tasks; Multiple servo motors being controlled independently; Multitasking IoT project; Temperature controller with independent keyboard entry; Random number generator with 3 tasks: live, generator, display; home alarm system; car park management system, and many more.

Language 语言: English
ISBN-10 书号:081539652X

Book Description to Finelybook sorting
Computer Architectures is a collection of multidisciplinary historical works unearthing sites, concepts, and concerns that catalyzed the cross-contamination of computers and architecture in the mid-20th century.
Weaving together intellectual, social, cultural, and material histories, this book paints the landscape that brought computing into the imagination, production, and management of the built environment, whilst foregrounding the impact of architecture in shaping technological development. The book is organized into sections corresponding to the classic von Neumann diagram for computer architecture: program (control unit), storage (memory), input/output and computation (arithmetic/logic unit), each acting as a quasi-material category for parsing debates among architects, engineers, mathematicians, and technologists. Collectively, authors bring forth the striking homologies between a computer program and an architectural program, a wall and an interface, computer memory and storage architectures, structures of mathematics and structures of things. The collection initiates new histories of knowledge and technology production that turn an eye toward disciplinary fusions and their institutional and intellectual drives.
Constructing the common ground between design and computing, this collection addresses audiences working at the nexus of design, technology, and society, including historians and practitioners of design and architecture, science and technology scholars, and media studies scholars.
