More Details..

This book addresses the algorithm analysis and VLSI architecture of video encoders, especially for high definition and scalable video coder. The three design challenges and related system issues of memory bandwidth (including system memory and internal memory), hardware area, and power consumption (required operating frequency) are all discussed.  With the high definition encoder, the authors focus on algorithm modification and design parallelism to provide high processing capability for the video encoder. Several corresponding hardware schedules are also included to cooperate with proposed architecture. For scalable video coding, the emphasis is placed not only on video algorithms, but also on hardware performance. The algorithm modification, data reuse schemes from frame-level to candidates-level, and architecture design contribute in the developing of three scalabilities and first MCTF hardware design.  Finally, the first SVC encoder chip for HDTV1080p is presented and all above design issues are considered together.

More Details..

The volume of data in companies keeps on growing, and most often each business unit, such as marketing, sales, HR, accounting, production, etc., manages its own data. Then the question of how to optimize the interaction and synchronization of this data and how to guarantee its quality – in terms of consistency, regular updates, absence of duplicates, etc. – becomes essential. What is necessary is a vision and a process for how to avoid the problem of isolated data islands and how to integrate the data into a company-wide information pool?

The aim of this book is to outline methods and solutions for better data management, and, more particularly, the management of master data, i.e., data structuring numerous processes and used in several applications. To this end, the authors explain the notion of  "Master Data Management" (MDM), based on the essential "point of truth" concept. Their presentation is organized into three parts: Part I outlines the basic concepts, requirements and issues relating to data management. Part II details best practices, the architectures and solutions for improving data management, focusing in particular on the MDM concept. Finally, Part III details control methods and organizations based on the key concept of data governance.

This book targets IS responsibles who want to better manage their company's data as well as business managers or enterprise architects who want to analyze interdepartmental processes and applications. They will find much useful information on how to transform a strategic data-related vision into reality, whether it is a business-driven vision, e.g., focusing on customer-related processes, or an IT-driven vision, e.g., aiming at service-oriented architectures.

More Details..

The present work provides a platform for leading Data designers whose vision and creativity help us to anticipate major changes occurring in the Data Design field, and pre-empt the future. Each of them strives to provide new answers to the question, “What challenges await Data Design?” To avoid falling into too narrow a mind-set, each works hard to elucidate the breadth of Data Design today and to demonstrate its widespread application across a variety of business sectors. With end users in mind, designer-contributors bring to light the myriad of purposes for which the field was originally intended, forging the bond even further between Data Design and the aims and intentions of those who contribute to it. The first seven parts of the book outline the scope of Data Design, and presents a line-up of “viewpoints” that highlight this discipline’s main topics, and offers an in-depth look into practices boasting both foresight and imagination. The eighth and final part features a series of interviews with Data designers and artists whose methods embody originality and marked singularity.

 

As a result, a number of enlightening concepts and bright ideas unfold within the confines of this book to help dispel the thick fog around this new and still relatively unknown discipline. A plethora of equally eye-opening and edifying new terms, words, and key expressions also unfurl. Informing, influencing, and inspiring are just a few of the buzz words belonging to an initiative that is, first and foremost, a creative one, not to mention the possibility to discern the ever-changing and naturally complex nature of today’s datasphere.

 

Providing an invaluable and cutting-edge resource for design researchers, this work is also intended for students, professionals and practitioners involved in Data Design, Interaction Design, Digital & Media Design, Data & Information Visualization, Computer Science and Engineering.

Maximizing reader insights into the interactions between game theory, excessive crowding and safety and security elements, this book establishes a new research angle by illustrating linkages between different research approaches and through laying the foundations for subsequent analysis.

Congestion (excessive crowding) is defined in this work as all kinds of flows; e.g., road/sea/air traffic, people, data, information, water, electricity, and organisms. Analysing systems where congestion occurs  – which may be in parallel, series, interlinked, or interdependent, with flows one way or both ways – this book puts forward new congestion models, breaking new ground by introducing game theory and safety/security into proceedings.

Addressing  the multiple actors who may hold different concerns regarding system reliability; e.g. one or several terrorists, a government, various local or regional government agencies, or others with stakes for or against system reliability, this book describes how governments and authorities may have the tools to handle congestion, but that these  tools need to be improved whilst additionally ensuring safety and security against various threats.

This game-theoretic analysis sets this book apart from the current congestion literature and ensures that the book will be of use to postgraduates, researchers, 3rd/4th-year undergraduates, policy makers, and practitioners.

More Details..

The present book is the result of a three year research project which investigated the creative act of composing by means of algorithmic composition. Central to the investigation are the compositional strategies of 12 composers, which were documented through a dialogic and cyclic process of modelling and evaluating musical materials. The aesthetic premises and compositional approaches configure a rich spectrum of diverse positions, which is reflected also in the kinds of approaches and methods used. These approaches and methods include the generation and evaluation of chord sequences using genetic algorithms, the application of morphing strategies to research harmonic transformations, an automatic classification of personal preferences via machine learning, and an application of mathematical music theory to the analysis and resynthesis of musical material. The second part of the book features contributions by Sandeep Bhagwati, William Brooks, David Cope, Darla Crispin, Nicolas Donin, and Guerino Mazzola. These authors variously consider the project from different perspectives, offer independent approaches, or provide more general reflections from their respective research fields.

This book addresses the application of methods used in statistical physics to complex systems—from simple phenomenological analogies to more complex aspects, such as correlations, fluctuation-dissipation theorem, the concept of free energy, renormalization group approach and scaling. Statistical physics contains a well-developed formalism that describes phase transitions. It is useful to apply this formalism for damage phenomena as well. Fractals, the Ising model, percolation, damage mechanics, fluctuations, free energy formalism, renormalization group, and scaling, are some of the topics covered in Statistical Physics of Phase Transitions.
