This book reflects the author’s years of hands-on experience as an academic and practitioner. It is primarily intended for executives, managers and practitioners who want to redefine the way they think about artificial intelligence (AI) and other exponential technologies. Accordingly the book, which is structured as a collection of largely self-contained articles, includes both general strategic reflections and detailed... more...

It's nearly impossible to build a competent Go-playing machine using conventional programming techniques, let alone have it win. By applying advanced AI techniques, in particular deep learning and reinforcement learning, users can train their Go-bot in the rules and tactics of the game. Deep Learning and the Game of Go opens up the world of deep learning and AI by teaching readers to build their own Go-playing... more...

"Fans will find this volume indispensable; casual readers will find it an attractive nuisance," observed Scientific American of this rich and challenging compilation of puzzles. From brainteasers that any novice can figure out to complex problems involving number theory, this puzzle treasury offers a splendid variety of conundrums. Readers can follow the path of the bouncing billiard balls, search for the lost... more...

This book systematically analyses the latest insights into night vision imaging processing and perceptual understanding as well as related theories and methods. The algorithm model and hardware system provided can be used as the reference basis for the general design, algorithm design and hardware design of photoelectric systems. Focusing on the differences in the imaging environment, target characteristics, and imaging methods, this... more...

Did you know that games and puzzles have given birth to many of today's deepest mathematical subjects? Now, with Douglas Ensley and Winston Crawley's Introduction to Discrete Mathematics, you can explore mathematical writing, abstract structures, counting, discrete probability, and graph theory, through games, puzzles, patterns, magic tricks, and real-world problems. You will discover how new mathematical topics can be applied to everyday situations,... more...


Nuggets of Number Theory will attract fans of visual thinking, number theory, and surprising connections. This book contains hundreds of visual explanations of results from elementary number theory. Figurate numbers and Pythagorean triples feature prominently, of course, but there are also proofs of Fermat's Little and Wilson's Theorems. Fibonacci and perfect numbers, Pell's equation, and continued fractions all find visual representation in this... more...

This book presents a detailed review of the state of the art in deep learning approaches for semantic object detection and segmentation in medical image computing, and large-scale radiology database mining. A particular focus is placed on the application of convolutional neural networks, with the theory supported by practical examples. Features: highlights how the use of deep neural networks can address new questions and protocols, as... more...

Divided into two volumes, the book begins with a pedagogical presentation of some of the basic theory, with chapters on biochemical reactions, diffusion, excitability, wave propagation and cellular homeostasis. The second, more extensive part discusses particular physiological systems, with chapters on calcium dynamics, bursting oscillations and secretion, cardiac cells, muscles, intercellular communication, the circulatory system, the immune system,... more...

Shows and explains tricks involving eggs, dice, coins, chains, string, balls, cards, photographs, optical illusions, mirrors, crystals, sound, and matches

Introduction to Dynamical Systems and Geometric Mechanics provides a comprehensive tour of two fields that are intimately entwined: dynamical systems is the study of the behavior of physical systems that may be described by a set of nonlinear first-order ordinary differential equations in Euclidean space, whereas geometric mechanics explore similar systems that instead evolve on differentiable manifolds. The first part discusses the linearization and... more...
