Computer games for learning: an evidence-based approach
Mayer R.,  The MIT Press, Cambridge, MA, 2014. 304 pp. Type: Book (978-0-262027-57-1)

With the advent of technology in academia, one of the age-old questions has been: Has all that technology facilitated learning? There seems to be a constant division between those who swear to the usefulness of computers, games, and technology in ...

Unsupervised methods for the classification of hyperspectral images with low spatial resolution
Villa A., Chanussot J., Benediktsson J., Jutten C., Dambreville R.  Pattern Recognition 46(6): 1556-1568, 2013. Type: Article

Spectral imaging constitutes a fascinating type of data. Organized as a set of grayscale images, with each image recording the reflected light of the same scene under a different light wavelength range, a spectral image can reveal significantly...

A unified method for finding impossible differentials of block cipher structures
Luo Y., Lai X., Wu Z., Gong G.  Information Sciences: an International Journal 263211-220, 2014. Type: Article

Impossible differential analysis is widely used as a cryptographic tool for key recovering or distinguishing attacks on block ciphers. There are mainly two methods for searching impossible differentials: one is case-by-case analysis and the other ...

Computing petaflops over terabytes of data: the case of genome-wide association studies
Fabregat-Traver D., Bientinesi P.  ACM Transactions on Mathematical Software 40(4): 1-22, 2014. Type: Article

With its catchy but somewhat misleading title, this paper proposes a method for efficiently solving multiple instances of the same problem when the instances are correlated....

Ontology-based interpretation of natural language
Cimiano P., Unger C., McCrae J.,  Morgan&Claypool Publishers, San Rafael, CA, 2014. 178 pp. Type: Book (978-1-608459-89-6)

The holy grail for computational linguistics, as the authors see it, is the semantic interpretation of text. A combination of semantic web research, particularly related to ontology-based systems, together with linguistic formalisms and knowledge ...

Analytical solutions for frequency estimators by interpolation of DFT coefficients
Liao J., Lo S.  Signal Processing 10093-100, 2014. Type: Article

Given a sequence of sinusoidal signals s[n] with additive noise in the time domain, a fundamental problem is to estimate its frequency. It has a wide range of applications, such as biomedical signal...

Constraints meet concurrency
Mauro J.,  Atlantis Publishing Corporation, Paris, France, 2014. 170 pp. Type: Book (978-9-462390-66-9)

Constraint-based execution and concurrency are valuable allies, but they are not natural ones. This book examines ways in which constraints and concurrency can be brought into harmony. The results reported show how constraints can be trimmed for...
