Like his papers in the field, Sidi’s Vector extrapolation methods with applications offers a wide overview of extrapolation techniques to improve the convergence of a given sequence of vectors, often obtained from an iterative method ...

  Advanced Boolean techniques: selected papers from the 13th International Workshop on Boolean Problems
Drechsler R., Soeken M.,  Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2019. 265 pp. Type: Book (978-3-030203-22-1)

Boolean functions--functions on the domain of the logical values “true” and “false”--represent a fundamental concept of computer science with applications in many areas, including the design of digital circuits, t...

  Project management: a benefit realisation approach
Zwikael O., Smyrk J.,  Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2019. 337 pp. Type: Book (978-3-030031-73-2)

Project management is not a new discipline. It has been studied for ages, with many examples from the past. The pyramids are a good example of the very first project management initiatives, for instance. The main difference is that, nowadays, ther...

  Frontiers of cyberlearning: emerging technologies for teaching and learning
Spector J., Kumar V., Essa A., Huang Y., Koper R., Tortorella R., Chang T., Li Y., Zhang Z.,  Springer Publishing Company, Incorporated, New York, NY, 2018. 246 pp. Type: Book

This book would work well as the first volume in a series on this subject, with new editions released every three to five years due to rapidly changing technologies and the convergence of technologies that provide new forms of deployment in educat...

  Manipulative design of scoring systems
Baumeister D., Hogrebe T.  AAMAS 2019 (Proceedings of the 18th International Conference on Autonomous Agents and MultiAgent Systems, Montreal, QC, Canada,  May 13-17, 2019) 1814-1816, 2019. Type: Proceedings

Scoring systems, where each candidate gets a number of points from each voter based on the candidate’s position in the voter’s vote, are the most important broad class of voting rules. For example, plurality elections are scoring syste...

   Fairness-aware machine learning: practical challenges and lessons learned
Bird S., Hutchinson B., Kenthapadi K., K c man E., Mitchell M.  WWW 2019 (Companion Proceedings of The 2019 World Wide Web Conference, San Francisco, CA,  May 13-17, 2019) 1297-1298, 2019. Type: Proceedings

This is a timely paper in light of recent stories about bias in artificial intelligence (AI) systems, such as the COMPAS system used in Florida to predict recidivism. The tutorial’s aim is to describe what the authors call a “fairness-...

  Concepts of soft computing: fuzzy and ANN with programming
Chakraverty S., Sahoo D., Mahato N.,  Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2019. 195 pp. Type: Book

Soft computing, a branch of artificial intelligence (AI), deals with computations involving uncertainty in complex real-world problems (as opposed to hard computing, which deals with computations involving certainty only encountered in ideal situa...

  The art of high performance computing for computational science, vol. 1: techniques of speedup and parallelization for general purposes
Geshi M.,  Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2019. 219 pp. Type: Book

This is the book I wish I had owned when I started supporting computational scientists a few years ago. It is revised and updated from a Japanese volume based on computational science lectures broadcast to a number of campuses through video confer...
