User interface design is a challenging, multi-disciplinary activity that requires an understanding of a wide range of concepts and techniques that are often subjective and even conflicting. This title explains how to design intuitive user interfaces by focusing on effective human communication.
Since the publication of Wireless Video Communications five years ago, the area of video compression and wireless transceivers has evolved even further. This new edition addresses a range of recent developments in these areas, giving cognizance to the associated transmission aspects and issues of error resilience. Video Compression and Communications has been updated and condensed yet remains all-encompassing, giving a comprehensive overview of the subject. Covering compression issues, coding delay, implementational complexity and bitrate, the book also looks at the historical perspective to video communication. * New edition of successful and informative text, Wireless Video Communications * Substantial new material has been added on areas such as H.264, MPEG4 coding and transceivers * Clear presentation and broad scope make it essential for anyone interested in wireless communications * Systematically converts the lessons of Shannon´s information theory into design principles applicable to practical wireless systems. This book is ideal for postgraduates and researchers in communication systems but will also be a valuable reference to undergraduates, development and systems engineers of video compression applications as well as industrialists, managers and visual communications practitioners.
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 12th International Conference on the Quality of Information and Communications Technology, QUATIC 2019, held in Ciudad Real, Spain, in September 2019. The 19 full papers and 6 short papers were carefully reviewed and selected from 66 submissions. The papers are organized in topical sections: security & privacy, requirements engineering, business processes, evidence-based software engineering, process improvement and assessment, model-driven engineering & software maintenance, data science & services, and verification and validation.
This volume contains the papers from BIOWIRE 2007, the first in a series of wo- shops on the bio-inspired design of networks, and additional papers contributed from the research area of bio-inspired computing and communication. The workshop took place at the University of Cambridge during April 2-5, 2007 with sponsorship from the US/UK International Technology Alliance in Network and Information Sciences. Its objective was to present, discuss and explore the recent developments in the field of bio-inspired design of networks, with particular regard to wireless networks and the self-organizing properties of biological networks. The workshop was organized by Jon Crowcroft (University of Cambridge), Don Towsley (University of Massachusetts), Dinesh Verma (IBM T. J. Watson Research Center), Vasilis Pappas (IBM T. J. Watson Research Center), Ananthram Swami (ARL), Tom McCutcheon (DSTL) and Pietro Liò (University of Cambridge). The program for BIOWIRE 2007 included 54 speakers covering a diverse range of topics, categorized as follows: 1. Self-organized communication networks in insects 2. Neuronal communications 3. Bio-computing 4. Epidemiology 5. Network theory 6. Wireless and sensorial networks 7. Brain: models of sensorial integration The BIOWIRE workshop focuses on achieving a common ground for knowledge sharing among scientists with expertise in investigating the application domain (e. g. , biological, wireless, data communication and transportation networks) and scientists with relevant expertise in the methodology domain (e. g. , mathematics and statistical physics of networks).
This exciting and entertaining textbook is ideal for courses in information, communication and coding. It is an unparalleled entry point to these subjects for professionals working in areas as diverse as computational biology, data mining, financial engineering and machine learning.
Takes into account the special concerns found in designing and developing embedded applications specifically concurrency, communication, speed, and memory usage. This book gives patterns in UML (Unified Modeling Language) with examples including ANSI C for direct and practical application to C code.
Robert Kowalski demonstrates how ordinary people in their everyday life can profit from the advances of computational logic that have been developed for artificial intelligence. This book is an eye-opening read for any student who employs practical thinking, problem solving and communication skills.
This book teaches students how to build an organizational framework based on agile principles for better team design, communications design, clear lines of accountability and a set of valued organizational norms for good organization design to create a healthy environment for Business-IT effectiveness and agility in small, medium, and large software companies.
