The goal of machine learning is to program computers to use example data or past experience to solve a given problem. Many successful applications of machine learning exist already, including systems that analyze past sales data to predict customer behavior, recognize faces or spoken speech, optimize robot behavior so that a task can be completed...

The only how-to guide offering a unified, systemic approach to acquiring, cleaning, and managing data in R

Every experienced practitioner knows that preparing data for modeling is a painstaking, time-consuming process. Adding to the difficulty is that most modelers learn the steps involved in cleaning and managing data...

Conquer your fear and anxiety learning how the concepts behind object-oriented design apply to the ABAP programming environment. Through simple examples and metaphors this book demystifies the object-oriented programming model.

Object-Oriented Design with ABAP presents a bridge from the familiar procedural style...

DevOps for Developers delivers a practical, thorough introduction to approaches, processes and tools to foster collaboration between software development and operations. Efforts of Agile software development often end at the transition phase from development to operations. This book covers the delivery of software, this means...

Fourier transforms are used widely, and are of particular value in the analysis of single functions and combinations of functions found in radar and signal processing. Still, many problems that could have been tackled by using Fourier transforms may have gone unsolved because they require integration that is difficult and tedious. Now you can solve...

The authors have written a rigorous yet elementary and self-contained book to present, in a unified framework, generalized convex functions, which are the many non-convex functions that share at least one of the valuable properties of convex functions and which are often more suitable for describing real-world problems. The book will be a useful...

This book examines fuzzy relational calculus theory with applications in various engineering subjects. The scope of the text covers unified and exact methods with algorithms for direct and inverse problem resolution in fuzzy relational calculus. Extensive engineering applications of fuzzy relation compositions and fuzzy linear systems...

Television was one of the inventions that shaped the way society and culture evolved over the second half of the twentieth century. It had the powerful effect of shrinking the world which creating a unified view of how things were. There continues to be an evolution of television and a migration towards a fully interactive and ubiquitous IPTV....

In Windows, there's a control panel, dialog box, console, or wizard to manage every component of a system. There are thousands of them—so many that it can be nearly impossible to keep track of all the locations and settings one needs to administer Windows effectively. PowerShell provides administrators with a single,...

IT architecture is a critical tool that defines the components or building blocks that comprise an organization¿s overall information system. This guide provides a comprehensive and practical introduction and reference for the IT architecture design of an enterprise organization¿s information system. Covering the full spectrum of IT...

This book provides an introduction to the applications, theory, and algorithms of linear and nonlinear optimization. The emphasis is on practical aspects—modern algorithms, as well as the influence of theory on the interpretation of solutions or on the design of software. Two important goals of this book are to present linear and nonlinear...
