The story of proof: logic and the history of mathematics
Stillwell J., PRINCETON UNIVERSITY PRESS, Princeton, NJ, 2022. 456 pp. Type: Book (0691234361), Reviews: (2 of 2)
Years ago, several of my colleagues in the university’s mathematics department told me that many high school students no longer study classic plane geometry, the kind of instruction that emphasizes careful logic applied to axioms, postulates...
Advances in data science
Demir I., Lou Y., Wang X., Welker K., Springer International Publishing, Cham, Switzerland, 2021. 384 pp. Type: Book (978-3-030798-90-1)
Advances in data science
, published as volume 26 in Springer’s “Association for Women in Mathematics” series, summarizes the results from two related workshops--the first one held at the Institute for Computational an...
Mathematical foundations of data science using R (2nd ed.)
Emmert-Streib F., Moutari S., Dehmer M., DE GRUYTER, Berlin, Germany, 2022. 408 pp. Type: Book (3110795884)
Data science aims to extract relevant information from a large dataset for the purpose of decision making. Data science algorithms rely on several mathematical topics. Computationally, these algorithms can be implemented using several programming ...
IoT for sustainable smart cities and society
Rodrigues J., Agarwal P., Khanna K., Springer International Publishing, Cham, Switzerland, 2022. 338 pp. Type: Book (303089553X)
Before reading this review, take two minutes to reflect upon the following questions:...
Parallel-and-stream accelerator for computationally fast supervised learning
Hector E., Luo L., Song P. Computational Statistics & Data Analysis 177(1): 1-12, 2022. Type: Article
Large enterprises with massive amounts of data require reliable and efficient algorithms for exploring and forecasting trends in available supplies, user purchases, and advertisements. The scalability of the MapReduce approach is advantageous for ...
A review on virtual reality and augmented reality use-cases of brain computer interface based applications for smart cities
Kohli V., Tripathi U., Chamola V., Kumar Rout B., Kanhere S. Microprocessors & Microsystems 88(1): 1-13, 2022. Type: Article
Current computing and user interface technologies permit increasingly direct connections between the human brain and computers. The technologies include various types of displays, such as traditional screens, smartphones, or headsets, and electric...
Deep learning and physics
Tanaka A., Tomiya A., Hashimoto K., Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2021. 220 pp. Type: Book (978-9-813361-07-2)
Machine learning (ML) and particularly deep learning (DL) are used in various physics studies. In this book, the authors show how. They begin by discussing the attributes and theory of ML and its apparent similarities in form to theories in physic...
Artificial intelligence: an introduction for the inquisitive reader
Chen R., Chen C., CRC Press, Boca Raton, FL, 2022. 344 pp. Type: Book (978-1-032103-47-1)
Chen and Chen present a comprehensive overview of the past decades from a computer science (CS) and artificial intelligence (AI) point of view. The book is not a scientific or technical/technology elaboration since a part of it, or more exactly se...
One-hop out-of-band control planes for multi-hop wireless sensor networks
Gu C., Tan R., Lou X. ACM Transactions on Sensor Networks 15(4): 1-29, 2019. Type: Article
Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have expanded in the last decade. Sensors are deployed in an environment to control the data generated within that area, without any wiring. Data is sensed by the deployed devices (often called “motes”) ...
On the model of computation: point: we must extend our model of computation to account for cost and location
Dally W. Communications of the ACM 65(9): 30-32, 2022. Type: Article
The model of any process demonstrates its functionality and is useful for its study and analysis. For example, the Turing machine is a model for computation. However, the random-access machine (RAM) model is close to the architecture of serial pro...
