Deep Blue Book Excerpt:

This book offers a detailed account of IBM's Deep Blue chess program, the people who created it, and its historic battles with World Chess Champion Garry Kasparov. The text examines the progress made by the creators of Deep Blue, beginning with the1989 two-game match against Kasparov. The heroes are: IBM researchers Feng-hsiung Hsu, Murray Campbell, and Joe Hoane, along with team leader Chung-Jen Tan and International Grandmaster Joel Benjamin. The text chronicles one of the great technology achievements of the 20th Century. It establishes the point in history when mankind's exciting new tool, the computer, came of age and competed with its human creators in the ultimate intellectual competition: a game of chess. This book will serve as the premier story documenting that achievement and a milestone in the development of artificial intelligence.

Evolutionary Computation Book Excerpt:

This Third Edition provides the latest tools and techniques thatenable computers to learn The Third Edition of this internationally acclaimed publicationprovides the latest theory and techniques for using simulatedevolution to achieve machine intelligence. As a leading advocatefor evolutionary computation, the author has successfullychallenged the traditional notion of artificial intelligence, whichessentially programs human knowledge fact by fact, but does nothave the capacity to learn or adapt as evolutionary computationdoes. Readers gain an understanding of the history of evolutionarycomputation, which provides a foundation for the author's thoroughpresentation of the latest theories shaping current research.Balancing theory with practice, the author provides readers withthe skills they need to apply evolutionary algorithms that cansolve many of today's intransigent problems by adapting to newchallenges and learning from experience. Several examples areprovided that demonstrate how these evolutionary algorithms learnto solve problems. In particular, the author provides a detailedexample of how an algorithm is used to evolve strategies forplaying chess and checkers. As readers progress through the publication, they gain anincreasing appreciation and understanding of the relationshipbetween learning and intelligence. Readers familiar with theprevious editions will discover much new and revised material thatbrings the publication thoroughly up to date with the latestresearch, including the latest theories and empirical properties ofevolutionary computation. The Third Edition also features new knowledge-building aids.Readers will find a host of new and revised examples. New questionsat the end of each chapter enable readers to test their knowledge.Intriguing assignments that prepare readers to manage challenges inindustry and research have been added to the end of each chapter aswell. This is a must-have reference for professionals in computer andelectrical engineering; it provides them with the very latesttechniques and applications in machine intelligence. With itsquestion sets and assignments, the publication is also recommendedas a graduate-level textbook.

An Alabama Songbook Book Excerpt:

A lavish presentation of 208 folksongs collected throughout Alabama in the 1940s Alabama is a state rich in folksong tradition, from old English ballads sung along the Tennessee River to children’s game songs played in Mobile, from the rhythmic work songs of the railroad gandy dancers of Gadsden to the spirituals of the Black Belt. The musical heritage of blacks and whites, rich and poor, hill folk and cotton farmers, these songs endure as a living part of the state’s varied past. In the mid 1940s Byron Arnold, an eager young music professor from The University of Alabama, set out to find and record as many of these songs as he could and was rewarded by unstinting cooperation from many informants. Mrs. Julia Greer Marechal of Mobile, for example, was 90 years old, blind, and a semi-invalid, but she sang for Arnold for three hours, allowing the recording of 33 songs and exhausting Arnold and his technician. Helped by such living repositories as Mrs. Marechal, the Arnold collection grew to well over 500 songs, augmented by field notes and remarkable biographical information on the singers. An Alabama Songbook is the result of Arnold’s efforts and those of his informants across the state and has been shaped by Robert W. Halli Jr. into a narrative enriched by more than 200 significant songs-lullabies, Civil War anthems, African-American gospel and secular songs, fiddle tunes, temperance songs, love ballads, play-party rhymes, and work songs. In the tradition of Alan Lomax’s The Folk Songs of North America and Vance Randolph’s Ozark Folksongs, this volume will appeal to general audiences, folklorists, ethnomusicologists, preservationists, traditional musicians, and historians.

Forgotten British Film Book Excerpt:

Some films are remembered long after they are released; others are soon forgotten, but do they deserve oblivion? Are factors other than quality involved? This book exhumes some of the films released in Britain over the last seventy years from Daybreak (1948) to 16 Years of Alcohol (2003), and considers the reasons for their neglect. As well as exploring the contributions of those involved in making the films, the book examines such issues as marketing and the response of critics and audiences. Films are grouped loosely into categories such as “B” films and television films. Some works were little seen when they were first released and have stayed that way; others were popular in their day, but have slipped into obscurity. In some cases, social change has overtaken them, making the attitudes or subjects they depict seem dated. Even being released as a DVD does not guarantee that a title will be rehabilitated. In addition, how significant is the American market? This book should appeal to lovers of British film, as well as to film studies students and everybody curious about the vagaries of success and failure in the arts.

The Oxford Handbook of Computational Linguistics Book Excerpt:

Ruslan Mitkov's highly successful Oxford Handbook of Computational Linguistics has been substantially revised and expanded in this second edition. Alongside updated accounts of the topics covered in the first edition, it includes 17 new chapters on subjects such as semantic role-labelling, text-to-speech synthesis, translation technology, opinion mining and sentiment analysis, and the application of Natural Language Processing in educational and biomedical contexts, among many others. The volume is divided into four parts that examine, respectively: the linguistic fundamentals of computational linguistics; the methods and resources used, such as statistical modelling, machine learning, and corpus annotation; key language processing tasks including text segmentation, anaphora resolution, and speech recognition; and the major applications of Natural Language Processing, from machine translation to author profiling. The book will be an essential reference for researchers and students in computational linguistics and Natural Language Processing, as well as those working in related industries.

Aspects of Sponge Biology Book Excerpt:

Aspects of Sponge Biology is the result of a symposium about sponge biology held in Albany, New York in May 1975. The symposium not only presents investigations, but also problem areas in the field of sponge biology. This book therefore shows that sponges are a very challenging and untouched subject area for future studies. This book is divided into three major parts, wherein the first part introduces and discusses sponge biology. The introduction and discussion include sponge biology principles, perspectives, and problems. The next two parts discuss cell and development biology, taxonomy, and ecology. Part 2 deals with several topics of the cellular aspect, including an analysis of reproduction in sponge populations and cytochemical studies of connective tissues in sponges. This part also looks into the cytological abnormalities in various normal and transformed cell lines. Part 3 describes the different types of sponge in their various habitats. Sponge feeding mechanisms, ecological factors controlling sponge distribution, and zoogeography of Brazilian marine Demospongiae are also discussed in this part. This book will be of important value to biology students and teachers. Specialists including zoologists, ecologists, comparative physiologists, and biologists will also benefit from this book.
