Want to tap the power behind search rankings, product recommendations, social bookmarking, and online matchmaking? This fascinating book demonstrates how you can build Web 2.0 applications to mine the enormous amount of data created by people on the Internet. With the sophisticated algorithms in this book, you can write smart programs to access interesting datasets from other web sites, collect data from users of your own applications, and analyze and understand the data once you´ve found it. Programming Collective Intelligence takes you into the world of machine learning and statistics, and explains how to draw conclusions about user experience, marketing, personal tastes, and human behavior in general all from information that you and others collect every day. Each algorithm is described clearly and concisely with code that can immediately be used on your web site, blog, Wiki, or specialized application. This book explains: - Collaborative filtering techniques that enable online retailers to recommend products or media - Methods of clustering to detect groups of similar items in a large dataset - Search engine features crawlers, indexers, query engines, and the PageRank algorithm - Optimization algorithms that search millions of possible solutions to a problem and choose the best one - Bayesian filtering, used in spam filters for classifying documents based on word types and other features - Using decision trees not only to make predictions, but to model the way decisions are made - Predicting numerical values rather than classifications to build price models - Support vector machines to match people in online dating sites - Non-negative matrix factorization to find the independent features in a dataset - Evolving intelligence for problem solving - how a computer develops its skill by improving its own code the more it plays a game Each chapter includes exercises for extending the algorithms to make them more powerful Go beyond simple database-backed applications and put the wealth of Internet data to work for you. ´´Bravo! I cannot think of a better way for a developer to first learn these algorithms and methods, nor can I think of a better way for me (an old AI dog) to reinvigorate my knowledge of the details.´´ -- Dan Russell, Google ´´Toby´s book does a great job of breaking down the complex subject matter of machine-learning algorithms into practical, easy-to-understand examples that can be directly applied to analysis of social interaction across the Web today. If I had this book two years ago, it would have saved precious time going down some fruitless paths.´´ -- Tim Wolters, CTO, Collective Intellect Want to tap the power behind search rankings, product recommendations, social bookmarking, and online matchmaking?

Die Collective Mind Methode
49,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Während jeder Projektmanager Planung, Budgetierung und Qualitätsmanagement beherrscht, betritt er bei der Gestaltung der Soft Skills wie Kommunikation und Wissensaustausch häufig Neuland. Wie diese Soft Skills mit Methoden zur Nachvollzieh- und Messbarkeit des Collective Mind beherrschbar werden, vermitteln die Autoren in diesem Band. Bildung und Umsetzung des Collective Mind in zielorientiertes Handeln trägt dabei entscheidend zum Projekterfolg bei. Projektszenarien, ein Test und Best Practices erhöhen den Praxisbezug des Buches.

Brain Storm Optimization Algorithms
118,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Brain Storm Optimization (BSO) algorithms are a new kind of swarm intelligence method, which is based on the collective behavior of human beings, i.e., on the brainstorming process. Since the introduction of BSO algorithms in 2011, many studies on them have been conducted. They not only offer an optimization method, but could also be viewed as a framework of optimization techniques. The process employed in the algorithms could be simplified as a framework with two basic operations: the converging operation and the diverging operation. A ´´good enough´´ optimum could be obtained through recursive solution divergence and convergence. The resulting optimization algorithm would naturally have the capability of both convergence and divergence. This book is primarily intended for researchers, engineers, and graduate students with an interest in BSO algorithms and their applications. The chapters cover various aspects of BSO algorithms, and collectively provide broad insights into what these algorithms have to offer. The book is ideally suited as a graduate-level textbook, whereby students may be tasked with the study of the rich variants of BSO algorithms that involves a hands-on implementation to demonstrate the utility and applicability of BSO algorithms in solving optimization problems.

Taming the Complexity of Evolutionary Dynamics
63,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The study of complex adaptive systems is among the key modern tasks in science. Such systems show radically different behaviours at different scales and in different environments, and mathematical modelling of such emergent behaviour is very difficult, even at the conceptual level. We require a new methodology to study and understand complex, emergent macroscopic phenomena. Coarse graining, a technique that originated in statistical physics, involves taking a system with many microscopic degrees of freedom and finding an appropriate subset of collective variables that offer a compact, computationally feasible description of the system, in terms of which the dynamics looks ´´natural´´. The authors explain the basics of natural and artificial evolutionary dynamics, and offer detailed treatments of the related models of search spaces, population spaces, state spaces, crossover, mutation and selection. The rest of the book is concerned with the mathematical modelling of these aspects of evolutionary dynamics using the coarse graining technique, and with analysis of the subsequent models. This book is a significant contribution to the theory of artificial evolutionary systems, and will be key reading for theoreticians in computer science, artificial intelligence and engineering. While the insights into how complexity can be tamed will be valuable reading for biologists and physicists engaged with the theory of natural evolutionary systems.

Agile Entwicklungspraktiken mit Scrum
32,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Scrum ist ein agiles Managementframework, das keine Entwicklungspraktiken vorschreibt. Auswahl und Einsatz der geeigneten Techniken fallen unter die Selbstorganisation des Teams. Ohne die richtigen Entwicklungspraktiken und -tools wird Scrum aber kein dauerhafter Erfolg zuteil. Denn Teams, die qualitativ minderwertige Software erstellen, häufen ´´technische Schuld´´ an: Die Erweiterbarkeit und Wartbarkeit der Software leiden zusehends, die Entwicklungskosten steigen rapide an. Dieses Buch beschreibt den Einsatz agiler Entwicklungspraktiken leicht verständlich und praxisnah. Es hilft Teams, Software langfristig erfolgreich mit Scrum zu entwickeln, und beantwortet hierzu folgende Fragen: Welche Entwicklungspraktiken werden in Scrum angewandt? Wie werden die Praktiken richtig eingesetzt? Auf welche Besonderheiten ist bei ihrem Einsatz in Scrum zu achten? Im Detail werden behandelt: Architekturvision, inkrementeller Entwurf, Continuous Integration, testgetriebene Entwicklung (TDD), Refactoring, Akzeptanztests, Pair Programming, Collective Ownership, Dojos und Katas, modellgetriebene und verteilte Entwicklung mit Scrum. Das Buch dient auch zur Vorbereitung auf eine Zertifizierung wie Certified Scrum Developer (CSD) und Professional Scrum Developer (PSD).
