  Maribel Acosta Deibe/ 9781614999157/ Price:EUR 60.00
 
Book Cover In the last years, Linked Data initiatives have encouraged the publication of large graph-structured datasets using the Resource Description Framework (RDF). Due to the constant growth of RDF data on the web, more flexible data management infrastructures must be able to efficiently and effectively exploit the vast amount of knowledge accessible on the web. This book presents flexible query processing strategies over RDF graphs on the web using the SPARQL query language. In this work, we show how query engines can change plans on-the-fly with adaptive techniques to cope with unpredictable conditions and to reduce execution time. Furthermore, this work investigates the application of crowdsourcing in query processing, where engines are able to contact humans to enhance the quality of query answers. The theoretical and empirical results presented in this book indicate that flexible techniques allow for querying RDF data sources efficiently and effectively.

SD05-476 Internet of Things Security: Fundamentals, Techniques and Applications
  Shishir Kumar Shandilya/ 9788793609532/ Price:EUR 90.00
 
Book Cover Internet of Things (IoT) security deals with safeguarding the devices and communications of IoT systems, by implementing protective measures and avoiding procedures which can lead to intrusions and attacks. However, security was never the prime focus during the development of the IoT, hence vendors have sold IoT solutions without thorough preventive measures. The idea of incorporating networking appliances in IoT systems is relatively new, and hence IoT security has not always been considered in the product design. To improve security, an IoT device that needs to be directly accessible over the Internet should be segmented into its own network, and have general network access restricted. The network segment should be monitored to identify potential anomalous traffic, and action should be taken if a problem arises. This has generated an altogether new area of research, which seeks possible solutions for securing the devices, and communication amongst them.
   
SD05-476 The Web and Faith: Theological Analysis of Cyberspace Technologies
  Ayse Kok/ 9788793609570/ Price:EUR 70.00
 
Book Cover Computing technology is an indispensable feature of modern life. Our rapid-paced world seems more and more remote from the world narrated in sacred scriptures. However, despite its pervasiveness, there remains a dearth of theological reflection about computer technology and what it means to live as a faithful individual in a digitally - saturated society. The Web and Faith provides a brief theology of technology, rooted in the Islamic tradition and oriented around the grand themes of creation, redemption and new creation. The book combines a concise, accessible style with penetrating cultural and theological analysis. Building on the work of Marshall McLuhan and Neil Postman, and drawing from a wide range of enlightened Islamic thinkers, the book situates computer technology within the big picture of the story of creation. Technology is not neutral, but neither is there an exclusively 'faith-based' form of technological production and use. Instead, this book guides us to see the digital world as part of a larger creation, which is redeemable according to the law of faith. Responsibly used, technology can become an integral part of religious wisdom world-wide.

SD05-476 GDPR and Cyber Security for Business Information Systems
  Antoni Gobeo/ 9788793609136/ Price:EUR 60.00
 
Book Cover The General Data Protection Regulation is the latest, and one of the most stringent, regulations regarding Data Protection to be passed into law by the European Union. Fundamentally, it aims to protect the Rights and Freedoms of all the individuals included under its terms; ultimately the privacy and security of all our personal data. This requirement for protection extends globally, to all organisations, public and private, wherever personal data is held, processed, or transmitted concerning any EU citizen. Cyber Security is at the core of data protection and there is a heavy emphasis on the application of encryption and state of the art technology within the articles of the GDPR. This is considered to be a primary method in achieving compliance with the law. Understanding the overall use and scope of Cyber Security principles and tools allows for greater efficiency and more cost effective management of Information systems. GDPR and Cyber Security for Business Information Systems is designed to present specific and practical information on the key areas of compliance to the GDPR relevant to Business Information Systems in a global context.

SD05-473 From Logic Programing to Human Reasoning: How to be Artifically Human
  Emmanuelle-Anna Dietz Saldanha/ 9781614998419/ Price:EUR 60.00
 
Book Cover Psychological experiments have shown that humans make assumptions, which are not necessarily valid, as they are influenced by their background knowledge and reason non-monotonically. These observations show that Classical Logic is not adequate for modeling human reasoning. Instead of assuming that humans do not reason logically at all, the author takes the view that humans do not necessarily reason in accordance with Classical Logic. The author investigates Weak Completion Semantics, a novel non-monotonic Logic Programming approach based on the three-valued ?ukasiewicz Logic, and applies it to the formalization of well-known human reasoning tasks. A surprising result is that the Weak Completion Semantics performs better than any other cognitive theory. Altogether, this publication shows one possible path for bridging the gap between Cognitive Science and Computational Logic, by building on previous formal approaches and modeling findings from psychological experiments within one cognitive theory.

Foundations of Probabilistic Logic Programming: Languages, Semantics, Inference and Learning
  Fabrizio Riguzzi/ 9788770220187/ Price:EUR 95.00
 
Book Cover Probabilistic Logic Programming extends Logic Programming by enabling the representation of uncertain information. Probabilistic Logic Programming is at the intersection of two wider research fields: the integration of logic and probability and Probabilistic Programming. Logic enables the representation of complex relations among entities while probability theory is useful for model uncertainty over attributes and relations. Combining the two is a very active field of study. Probabilistic Programming extends programming languages with probabilistic primitives that can be used to write complex probabilistic models. Algorithms for the inference and learning tasks are then provided automatically by the system. Probabilistic Logic programming is at the same time a logic language, with its knowledge representation capabilities, and a Turing complete language, with its computation capabilities, thus providing the best of both worlds.

Engineering Agile Big-Data Systems
  Kevin Feeney/ 9788770220163/ Price:EUR 95.00
 
Book Cover To be effective, data-intensive systems require extensive ongoing customisation to reflect changing user requirements, organisational policies, and the structure and interpretation of the data they hold. Manual customisation is expensive, time-consuming, and error-prone. In large complex systems, the value of the data can be such that exhaustive testing is necessary before any new feature can be added to the existing design. In most cases, the precise details of requirements, policies and data will change during the lifetime of the system, forcing a choice between expensive modification and continued operation with an inefficient design. Engineering Agile Big-Data Systems outlines an approach to dealing with these problems in software and data engineering, describing a methodology for aligning these processes throughout product lifecycles. It discusses tools which can be used to achieve these goals, and, in a number of case studies, shows how the tools and methodology have been used to improve a variety of academic and business systems.

SD05-474 Advances in Ontology Design and Patterns
  Karl Hammar/ 9781614998259/ Price:EUR 52.00
 
The study of patterns in the context of ontology engineering for the semantic web was pioneered more than a decade ago by Blomqvist, Sandkuhl and Gangemi. Since then, this line of research has flourished and led to the development of ontology design patterns, knowledge patterns, and linked data patterns: the patterns as they are known by ontology designers, knowledge engineers, and linked data publishers, respectively. A key characteristic of those patterns is that they are modular and reusable solutions to recurrent problems in ontology engineering and linked data publishing. This book contains recent contributions which advance the state of the art on theory and use of ontology design patterns. The papers collected in this book cover a range of topics, from a method to instantiate content patterns, a proposal on how to document a content pattern, to a number of patterns emerging in ontology modeling in various situations.

SD05-465 Semantic Data Mining: An Ontology-based Approach
  Lawrynowicz, Agnieszka/ 9781614997450/ Price:EUR 60.00
 
Book Cover his book presents, illustrates and empirically validates a new approach to modeling and explaining the nature of engineering design; the Recursive Model of Framing in Design (RFD). The RFD model offers a formalization of a grey area in design science by viewing the design process as a recursive interaction of problem framing and problem solving. Addressing the absence of any formalizations of the interactions occurring within this complex reasoning operation up to now, RFD expresses the existing knowledge in a formal and structured manner based on a cognitive phenomenon known as (reflective) solution talkback. The book explores several schemas implied by the model, making the interactive patterns of the design process explicit and further elaborating to reflect the empirical results. Including examples of how the RFD model has been used in designing user-focused environments for web and semantic web navigations, this volume will be of particular interest to those interested in designing and working with new semantic web applications.
   
SD05-465 Semantic Sentiment Analysis in Social Streams.
  Saif, Hassan/ 9781614997504/ Price:EUR 60.00
 
Book Cover A wide range of approaches to sentiment analysis on social media, have been recently built. Most of these approaches rely mainly on the presence of affect words or syntactic structures that explicitly and unambiguously reflect sentiment. However, these approaches are semantically weak, that is, they do not account for the semantics of words when detecting their sentiment in text. In order to address this problem, the author investigates the role of word semantics in sentiment analysis of microblogs. Specifically, Twitter is used as a case study of microblogging platforms to investigate whether capturing the sentiment of words with respect to their semantics leads to more accurate sentiment analysis models on Twitter. To this end, the author proposes several approaches in this book for extracting and incorporating two types of word semantics for sentiment analysis: contextual semantics (i.e., semantics captured from words¡¦ co-occurrences) and conceptual semantics (i.e., semantics extracted from external knowledge sources). Experiments are conducted with both types of semantics by assessing their impact in three popular sentiment analysis tasks on Twitter; entity-level sentiment analysis, tweet-level sentiment analysis and context-sensitive sentiment lexicon adaptation. The findings from this body of work demonstrate the value of using semantics in sentiment analysis on Twitter. The proposed approaches, which consider word semantics for sentiment analysis at both entity and tweet levels, surpass non-semantic approaches in most evaluation scenarios.

SD05-462 Probabilistic Semantic Web: Reasoning and Learning.
  Zese, Riccardo/ 9781614997337/ Price:EUR 60.00
 
Book Cover he management of uncertainty in the Semantic Web is of foremost importance given the nature and origin of the available data. This book presents a probabilistic semantics for knowledge bases, DISPONTE, which is inspired by the distribution semantics of Probabilistic Logic Programming. The book also describes approaches for inference and learning. In particular, it discusses 3 reasoners and 2 learning algorithms. BUNDLE and TRILL are able to find explanations for queries and compute their probability with regard to DISPONTE KBs while TRILLP compactly represents explanations using a Boolean formula and computes the probability of queries. The system EDGE learns the parameters of axioms of DISPONTE KBs. To reduce the computational cost, EDGEMR performs distributed parameter learning. LEAP learns both the structure and parameters of KBs, with LEAPMR using EDGEMR for reducing the computational cost. The algorithms provide effective techniques for dealing with uncertain KBs and have been widely tested on various datasets and compared with state of the art systems.
   
SD05-462 Populating a Linked Data Entity Name System: A Big Data Solution to Unsupervised Instance Matching.
  Kejriwal, Mayank/ 9781614996910/ Price:EUR 60.00
 
Book Cover his publication presents an instance matcher with 4 properties, namely automation, heterogeneity, scalability and domain independence. Automation is addressed by employing inexpensive but well-performing heuristics to automatically generate a training set, which is employed by other machine learning algorithms in the pipeline. Data-driven alignment algorithms are adapted to deal with structural heterogeneity in RDF graphs. Domain independence is established by actively avoiding prior assumptions about input domains, and through evaluations on 10 RDF test cases. The full system is scaled by implementing it on cloud infrastructure using MapReduce algorithms. Resource Description Framework (RDF) is a graph-based data model used to publish data as a Web of Linked Data. RDF is an emergent foundation for large-scale data integration, the problem of providing a unified view over multiple data sources. An Entity Name System (ENS) is a thesaurus for entities, and is a crucial component in a data integration architecture. Populating a Linked Data ENS is equivalent to solving an Artificial Intelligence problem called instance matching, which concerns identifying pairs of entities referring to the same underlying entity.

  / 9781680958744/ Price:US$ 64.95
 
Book Cover Information technology (IT) is the use of any computers, storage, networking and other physical devices,infrastructure and processes to create, process, store, secure and exchange all forms of electronic data. Typically, IT is used in the context of enterprise operations as opposed to personal or entertainment technologies. The commercial use of IT encompasses both computer technology and telephony. Programming is a creative process done by programmers to instruct a computer on how to do a task. It is the process of taking an algorithm and encoding it into a notation, a programming language, so that it can be executed by a computer. Although many programming languages and many di erent types of computers exist, the important rst step is the need to have the solution. Without an algorithm there can be no program.

Book Cover Programming is the process of taking an algorithm and encoding it into a notation, a programming language,so that it can be executed by a computer. Although many programming languages and many di erent types of computers exist, the important rst step is the need to have the solution. Without an algorithm there can be no program. Computer science is not the study of programming. Programming, however, is an important part of what a computer scientist does. Programming is often the way that we create a representation for our solutions. Therefore, this language representation and the process of creating it becomes a fundamental part of the discipline. Computers touch all areas of our lives: paying bills, driving cars, using the telephone, shopping.
   
SD05-462 Computer Organization and Assembly Language Programming.
  / 9781680958805/ Price:US$ 64.95
 
Book Cover In computer engineering, computer architecture is a set of rules and methods that describe the functionality, organization, and implementation of computer systems. Some de nitions of architecture de ne it as describing the capabilities and programming model of a computer but not a particular implementation. In other de nitions computer architecture involves instruction set architecture design, microarchitecture design, logic design, and implementation. Each personal computer has a microprocessor that manages the computer's arithmetical, logical, and control activities. Each family of processors has its own set of instructions for handling various operations such as getting input from keyboard, displaying information on screen and performing various other jobs. These set of instructions are called 'machine language instructions'. A processor understands only machine language instructions, which are strings of 1's and 0's. However, machine language is too obscure and complex for using in software development. So, the low-level assembly language is designed for a speci c family of processors that represents various instructions in symbolic code and a more understandable form. An assembly language is a low-level programming language for a computer, or other programmable device, in which there is a very strong (generally one-to-one) correspondence between the language and the architecture's machine code instructions.
   
SD05-462 Data Structures and Algorithm.
  / 9781680958812/ Price:US$ 64.95
 
Book Cover In computer science, a data structure is a particular way of organizing data in a computer so that it can be used e ciently. Data structures can implement one or more particular abstract data types (ADT), which specify the operations that can be performed on a data structure and the computational complexity of those operations. In comparison, a data structure is a concrete implementation of the speci cation provided by an ADT. Data Structures are the programmatic way of storing data so that data can be used e ciently. Almost every enterprise application uses various types of data structures in one or the other way. This text will give you a great understanding on Data Structures needed to understand the complexity of enterprise level applications and need of algorithms, and data structures. Data structures provide a means to manage large amounts of data e ciently for uses such as large databases and internet indexing services. Usually, e cient data structures are key to designing e cient algorithms. Some formal design methods and programming languages emphasize data structures, rather than algorithms, as the key organizing factor in software design. Data structures can be used to organize the storage and retrieval of information stored in both main memory and secondary memory.
   
SD05-462 Object Oriented Programming.
  / 9781680956825/ Price:US$ 64.95
 
Book Cover Object-oriented programming (OOP) is a programming paradigm based on the concept of "objects", which maycontain data, in the form of elds, often known as attributes; and code, in the form of procedures, often known as methods. A feature of objects is that an object's procedures can access and often modify the data elds of the object with which they are associated (objects have a notion of "this" or "self"). In OOP, computer programs are designed by making them out of objects that interact with one another. There is signi cant diversity of OOP languages, but the most popular ones are class-based, meaning that objects are instances of classes, which typically also determine their type. Many of the most widely used programming languages are multi-paradigm programming languages that support object-oriented programming to a greater or lesser degree, typically in combination with imperative, procedural programming. Object-oriented Programming uses objects, but not all of the associated techniques and structures are supported directly in languages that claim to support OOP.
   
SD05-462 Computer Oriented Numerical Methods.
  / 9781680957372/ Price:US$ 64.95
 
Book Cover Before the advent of modern computers numerical methods often depended on hand interpolation in large printed tables. Since the mid 20th century, computers calculate the required functions instead. These same interpolation formulas nevertheless continue to be used as part of the software algorithms for solving di erential equations. Numerical analysis is concerned with all aspects of the numerical solution of a problem, from the theoretical development and understanding of numerical methods to their practical implementation as reliable and e cient computer programs. Numerical analysis naturally nds applications in all elds of engineering and the physical sciences. The growth in power and availability of digital computers has led to an increasing use of realistic mathematical models in science and engineering, and numerical analysis of increasing sophistication is needed to solve these more detailed models of the world.
   
SD05-462 Data Communication.
  / 9781680956948/ Price:US$ 64.95
 
Book Cover Data communications refers to the transmission of digital data between two or more computers and a computer network or data network is a telecommunications network that allows computers to exchange data. The physical connection between networked computing devices is established using either cable media or wireless media. The best-known computer network is the Internet. A data communication system may collect data from remote locations through data transmission circuits, and then outputs processed results to remote locations. The di erent data communication techniques which are presently in widespread use evolved gradually either to improve the data communication techniques already existing or to replace the same with better options and features. Then, there are data communication jargons to contend with such as baud rate, modems, routers, LAN, WAN, TCP/IP, ISDN, during the selection of communication systems. The purpose of Data Communications is to provide the rules and regulations that allow computers with di erent disk operating systems, languages, cabling and locations to share resources. The rules and regulations are called protocols and standards in Data Communications. Hence, it becomes necessary to review and understand these terms and gradual development of data communication methods.
   
SD05-462 Introduction to Algorithm Design.
  / 9781680955736/ Price:US$ 64.95
 
Book Cover Problem solving is an essential part of every scienti c discipline. It has two components; problem identi cation and formulation, and solution of the formulated problem. One can solve a problem on its own using ad hoc techniques or follow those techniques that have produced e cient solutions to similar problems. This requires the understanding of various algorithm design techniques, how and when to use them to formulate solutions and the context appropriate for each of them. Algorithm design is identi ed and incorporated into many solution theories of operation research, such as dynamic programming and divide-and-conquer. Techniques for designing and implementing algorithm designs are algorithm design patterns, such as template method pattern and decorator pattern, and uses of data structures, and name and sort lists. Some current day uses of algorithm design can be found in internet retrieval processes of web crawling, packet routing and caching.
   
SD05-462 Visual Programming.
  / 9781680958690/ Price:US$ 64.95
 
Book Cover In computing, a visual programming language (VPL) is any programming language that lets users create programs by manipulating program elements graphically rather than by specifying them textually. A VPL allows programming with visual expressions, spatial arrangements of text and graphic symbols, used either as elements of syntax or secondary notation. For example, many VPLs are based on the idea of "boxes and arrows", where boxes or other screen objects are treated as entities, connected by arrows, lines or arcs which represent relations. Microsoft Visual Programming Language (VPL) is an application development environment designed on a graphical data ow-based programming model. Rather than series of imperative commands sequentially executed, a data ow program is more like a series of workers on an assembly line, who do their assigned task as the materials arrive. As a result VPL is well suited to programming a variety of concurrent or distributed processing scenarios. VPLs may be further classi ed, according to the type and extent of visual expression used, into icon-based languages, form-based languages, and diagram languages. Visual programming environments provide graphical or iconic elements which can be manipulated by users in an interactive way according to some speci c spatial grammar for program construction.
   
SD05-462 Introduction to Software Engineering.
  / 9781680956900/ Price:US$ 64.95
 
Book Cover Software engineering is the application of engineering to the design, development, implementation, testing and maintenance of software in a systematic method. Software engineering di ers from other branches of engineering in that professionals are building an intangible structure and not a tangible one. Since software is embedded in the machines used in various industries, though, malfunctioning software can actually have tangible e ects. With software used in everything from medical equipment to airplanes, the end result of faulty software can indeed be loss of life. When software projects require engineering, the process begins long before the product is designed ¡V and it continues long afterward. It begins with a thorough study of the software requirements. Some requirements involve the functions the program needs to carry out. The program may, for example, need to verify that a user is authorized to access it. Other requirements involve constraints, for example, systems already in place. Software engineering covers not only the technical aspects of building software systems, but also management issues, such as directing programming teams, scheduling, and budgeting.
   
SD05-462 Web Programming.
  / 9781680956917/ Price:US$ 64.95
 
Book Cover Programming is the intricate art of telling a computer what to do. It is giving written instructions in a logical manner that the computer can understand. Essentially, you give the computer small steps of instructions, and the computer goes down the list, doing each one in order. Programming allows you to make new software and have the computer do new things. Web site programming is the same except you write applications or web pages that are used by a web browser. Web programming refers to the writing, markup and coding involved in Web development, which includes Web content, Web client and server scripting and network security. The most common languages used for Web programming are XML, HTML, JavaScript, Perl 5 and PHP. Web programming is di erent from just programming, which requires interdisciplinary knowledge on the application area, client and server scripting, and database technology. This book will help you understand, what web programming is and why you might want to do it. Web programming is the practice of writing applications that run on a web server and can be used by many di erent people.
   
SD05-462 Compiler Design.
  / 9781680956931/ Price:US$ 64.95
 
In order to decrease the complexity of designing and building computers, nearly all of these are made to execute relatively simple commands. A program for a computer must be built by combining these very simple commands into a program in what is called machine language. Since this is a tedious and error prone process most programming is, instead, done using a high-level programming language. This language can be very di erent from the machine language that the computer can execute, so some means of bridging the gap is required. This is where the compiler comes in. A compiler translates the code written in one language to some other language without changing the meaning of the program. It is also expected that a compiler should make the target code e cient and optimized in terms of time and space. Compiler design principles provide an in-depth view of translation and optimization process. Compiler design covers basic translation mechanism and error detection & recovery. It includes lexical, syntax, and semantic analysis as front end, and code generation and optimization as back-end. A good compiler will, however, be able to get very close to the speed of hand-written machine code when translating well-structured programs.

SD05-462 Digital Image Processing.
  / 9781680956979/ Price:US$ 64.95
 
Book Cover Image processing is a physical process used to convert an image signal, either digital or analog, into a physical image. The actual output itself can be an actual physical image or the characteristics of an image. Digital image processing is the use of computer algorithms to perform image processing on digital images. As a subcategory or eld of digital signal processing, digital image processing has many advantages over analog image processing. It allows a much wider range of algorithms to be applied to the input data and can avoid problems such as the build-up of noise and signal distortion during processing. Since images are de ned over two dimensions digital image processing may be modeled in the form of multidimensional systems. Digital image processing allows the use of much more complex algorithms, and hence, can o er both more sophisticated performance at simple tasks, and the implementation of methods which would be impossible by analog means.
   
SD05-462 Fundamentals of Logic Design.
  / 9781680956986/ Price:US$ 64.95
 
Book Cover Logic design is a system in electrical and computer engineering that uses simple number values to produce input and output operations. Digital logic design is the basis of electronic systems, such as computers and cell phones. Digital logic is rooted in binary code, which renders information through zeroes and ones, giving each number in the binary code an opposite value. This system facilitates the design of electronic circuits that convey information, including logic gates with functions that include AND, OR, and NOT commands. A Boolean algebra is a mathematical structure that is similar to a Boolean ring, but that is de ned using the meet and join operators instead of the usual addition and multiplication operators. Logic gate is an idealized or physical device implementing a Boolean function; that is, it performs a logical operation on one or more logical inputs, and produces a single logical output. A ip- op is a circuit that has two stable states and can be used to store state information. State machine is a device which can be in one of a set number of stable conditions depending on its previous condition and on the present values of its inputs.

One example of multimedia would be combining a website with video, audio, or text images.
   
SD05-462 Software Project Management.
  / 9781680954074/ Price:US$ 64.95
 
Book Cover A project is well-de ned task, which is a collection of several operations done in order to achieve a goal (for example, software development and delivery). Software project management is the art and science of planning and leading software projects. It is a sub-discipline of project management in which software projects are planned, implemented, monitored and controlled. The purpose of project planning is to identify the scope of the project, estimate the work involved, and create a project schedule. Project planning begins with requirements that de ne the software to be developed. The project plan is then developed to describe the tasks that will lead to completion. The purpose of project monitoring and control is to keep the team and management up to date on the project's progress. If the project deviates from the plan, then the project manager can take action to correct the problem. Project monitoring and control involves status meetings to gather status from the team. When changes need to be made, change control is used to keep the products up to date.
   
SD05-462 Network Security.
  / 9781680954081/ Price:US$ 64.95

Career Guide: Programmer
  / 9781680959901/ Price:US$ 34.95
 
Book Cover A computer programmer is someone who writes computer software. The term computer programmer can refer to a specialist in one area of computer programming or to a generalist who writes code for many kinds of software. One who practices or professes a formal approach to programming may also be known as a programmer analyst. The term programmer can be used to refer to a software developer, software engineer, computer scientist, or software analyst. However, members of these professions typically possess other software engineering skills beyond programming. For this reason, the term programmer is sometimes considered an oversimplification of these other professions. A computer programmer figures out the process of designing, writing, testing, debugging/troubleshooting and maintaining the source code of computer programs. This source code is written in a programming language so the computer can ¡¥understand¡¦ it. The code may be a modification of an existing source or something completely new. The purpose of programming is to create a program that produces a certain desired behavior (customization). The process of writing source code often requires expertise in many different subjects, including knowledge of the application domain, specialized algorithms and formal logic. The computer programmer also designs a graphical user interface (GUI) so that non-technical users can use the software through easy, point-and-click menu options. The GUI acts as a translator between the user and the software code.

SD05-458 Web Mining: A Synergic Approach Resorting to Classifications and Clustering.
  Kumbhar, V. S./ 9788793379831/ Price:EUR 75.00
 
Book Cover Web mining is the application of data mining strategies to excerpt learning from web information, i.e. web content, web structure, and web usage data. With the emergence of the web as the predominant and converging platform for communication, business and scholastic information dissemination, especially in the last five years, there are ever increasing research groups working on different aspects of web mining mainly in three directions. These are: mining of web content, web structure and web usage. In this context there are good number of frameworks and benchmarks related to the metrics of the websites which is certainly weighty for B2B, B2C and in general in any e-commerce paradigm. Owing to the popularity of this topic there are few books in the market, dealing more on such performance metrics and other related issues. This book, however, omits all such routine topics and lays more emphasis on the classification and clustering aspects of the websites in order to come out with the true perception of the websites in light of its usability. In nutshell, Web Mining: A Synergic Approach Resorting to Classifications and Clustering showcases an effective methodology for classification and clustering of web sites from their usability point of view. While the clustering and classification is accomplished by using an open source tool WEKA, the basic dataset for the selected websites has been emanated by using a free tool site-analyzer. As a case study, several commercial websites have been analyzed. The dataset preparation using site-analyzer and classification through WEKA by embedding different algorithms is one of the unique selling points of this book. This text projects a complete spectrum of web mining from its very inception through data mining and takes the reader up to the application level.

Our particular focus in this book are approaches to use the SPARQL query language and execute queries by traversing Linked Data live during the query execution process. More specifically, we first provide formal foundations to adapt SPARQL to the given context. Thereafter, we use an abstract machine model to formally show computational feasibility and related properties of the resulting types of SPARQL queries. Additionally, we investigate fundamental properties of applying the traversal-based approach to query execution that is tailored to the use case of querying Linked Data directly on the WWW.
   
SD05-457 Publishing and Consuming Linked Data: Optimizing for the Unknown.
  Rietveld, Laurens/ 9781614996224/ Price:EUR 60.00
 
This dissertation addresses several problems in the context of publishing and consuming Linked Data. It describes these problems from the perspectives of three stakeholders: the Linked Data provider, developer and scientist. The Linked Data provider is faced with impractical data re-use and costly Linked Data hosting solutions. Developers face difficulties in finding, navigating and using Linked Datasets. Scientists lack the resources and methods to evaluate their work on Linked Data at large. This dissertation presents a number of novel approaches that address these issues, such as: - The LOD Laundromat: a centralized service that re-publishes cleaned, queryable and structurally annotated Linked Datasets. In 2015 the Laundromat was awarded first prize in the Dutch national Linked Open Data competition, and third prize in the European equivalent. - SampLD: A relevance-based sampling algorithm that enables publishers to decrease Linked Data hosting costs; - YASGUI: A feature-rich query editor for accessing SPARQL endpoints; - LOD Lab: An evaluation paradigm that enables scientists to increase the breadth and scale of their Linked Data evaluations. This work provides a unique overview of problems related to publishing and consuming Linked Data. The novel approaches presented here improve the state-of-the-art for Linked Data publishers, developers and scientists, and are a step towards a web of Linked Data that is more accessible and technically scalable.
   
SD05-457 Semantic and Fuzzy Modelling for Human Behaviour Recognition in Smart Spaces.
  Diaz Rodriguez, Natalia A./ 9781614996064/ Price:EUR 60.00
 
Book Cover One of the major limitations of the Ambient Intelligent Systems today is the lack of semantic models of those activities on the environment, so that the system can recognize the specific activity being performed by the user(s) and act accordingly. In this context, this thesis addresses the general problem of knowledge representation in Smart Spaces. The main objective is to develop knowledge-based models, equipped with semantics to learn, infer and monitor human behaviours in Smart Spaces. Moreover, it is easy to recognize that some aspects of this problem have a high degree of uncertainty, and therefore, the developed models must be equipped with mechanisms to manage this type of information. As an added value, this system should be sufficiently simple and flexible to be managed by non-expert users, and thus, facilitate the transfer of research to industry. To do this, we develop graphical models to represent human behaviour in Smart Spaces, in order to provide them with more usability in the final application. As a result, human behaviour recognition can help assisting people with special needs such as independent elders, in remote rehabilitation monitoring, industrial process guidelines, and many other cases.
   
SD05-457 Integrating Relational Databases with the Semantic Web.
  Sequeda, Juan F./ 9781614996286/ Price:EUR 60.00
 
Book Cover An early vision in Computer Science was to create intelligent systems capable of reasoning on large amounts of data. Independent results in the areas of Semantic Web and Relational Databases have advanced us towards this vision. Despite independent advances, the interface between Relational Databases and Semantic Web is poorly understood. This dissertation revisits this early vision with respect to current technology and addresses the following question: How and to what extent can Relational Databases be integrated with the Semantic Web? The thesis is that much of the existing Relational Database infrastructure can be reused to support the Semantic Web. Two problems are studied. Can a Relational Database be automatically virtualized as a Semantic Web data source? The first contribution is an automatic direct mapping from a Relational Database schema and data to RDF and OWL. The second contribution is a method capable of evaluating SPARQL queries against the Relational Database by exploiting two existing relational query optimizations. These contributions are embodied in the Ultrawrap system. Experiments show that SPARQL query execution performance on Ultrawrap is comparable to that of SQL queries written directly for the relational data. Such results have not been previously achieved. Can a Relational Database be mapped to existing Semantic Web ontologies and act as a reasoner? A third contribution is a method for Relational Databases to support inheritance and transitivity by compiling the ontology as mappings, implementing the mappings as views, using SQL recursion and optimizing by materializing views. Ultrawrap is extended with this contribution. Empirical analysis reveals that Relational Databases are able to effectively act as reasoners.

Image fusion is a new study field which combined with many different disciplines, such as sensors, signal processing, image processing, computer and artificial intelligence. In the past two decades, a large number of research literatures appear. This book is intended to give new advancements in the field of image fusion.
   
SD05-456 Steganography: Recent Advances.
  Moore, Andy/ 9781682500156/ Price:US$ 180.00
 
Book Cover Steganography is the art and science of hiding information by embedding messages within other, seemingly harmless messages. It works by replacing bits of useless or unused data in regular computer files (such as graphics, sound, text, HTML, or even floppy disks) with bits of different, invisible information. This hidden information can be plain text, cipher text, or even images. Steganography sometimes is used when encryption is not permitted. Or, more commonly, steganography is used to supplement encryption. An encrypted file may still hide information using steganography, so even if the encrypted file is deciphered, the hidden message is not seen. This book focuses on a relatively new field of study in Steganography and it takes a look at this technology by introducing the readers various concepts of Steganography and Steganalysis.
