User interface design is a challenging, multi-disciplinary activity that requires understanding a wide range of concepts and techniques that are often subjective and even conflicting. Imagine how much it would help if there were a single perspective that you could use to simplify these complex issues down to a small set of objective principles. In UI is Communication , Everett McKay explains how to design intuitive user interfaces by focusing on effective human communication. A user interface is ultimately a conversation between users and technology. Well-designed user interfaces use the language of UI to communicate to users efficiently and naturally. They also recognize that there is an emotional human being at the other end of the interaction, so good user interfaces strive to make an emotional connection. Applying what you learn from UI is Communication will remove much of the mystic, subjectiveness, and complexity from user interface design, and help you make better design decisions with confidence. It´s the perfect introduction to user interface design. Approachable, practical communication-based guide to interaction and visual design that you can immediately apply to projects to make solid design decisions quickly and confidently Includes design makeovers so you can see the concepts in practice with real examples Communication-based design process ties everything from interaction to visual design together
This book constitutes the refereed conference proceedings of the 26th International Colloquium on Structural Information and Communication Complexity, SIROCCO 2019, held in L´Aquila, Italy, in July 2019. The 19 full papers and 9 short papers presented in this book were carefully reviewed and selected from 39 submissions. They are devoted to the study of the interplay between structural knowledge, communication, and computing in decentralized systems of multiple communicating entities.
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 book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 12th International Conference on Security, Privacy, and Anonymity in Computation, Communication, and Storage, SpaCCS 2019, held in Atlanta, GA, USA in July 2019. The 37 full papers were carefully reviewed and selected from 109 submissions. The papers cover many dimensions including security algorithms and architectures, privacy-aware policies, regulations and techniques, anonymous computation and communication, encompassing fundamental theoretical approaches, practical experimental projects, and commercial application systems for computation, communication and storage.
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of six symposiums and two workshops co-located with SpaCCS 2019, the 12th International Conference on Security, Privacy, and Anonymity in Computation, Communication, and Storage. The 26 full papers were carefully reviewed and selected from 75 submissions. This year´s symposiums and workshops are: SPIoT 2019 - Security and Privacy of Internet of Things; TSP 2019 - Trust, Security and Privacy for Emerging Applications; SCS 2019 - Sensor-Cloud Systems; UbiSafe 2019 - UbiSafe Computing; ISSR 2019 - Security in e-Science and e-Research; CMRM 2019 - Cybersecurity Metrics and Risk Modeling.
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.
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.
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.
Information theory and inference, taught together in this exciting textbook, lie at the heart of many important areas of modern technology - communication, signal processing, data mining, machine learning, pattern recognition, computational neuroscience, bioinformatics and cryptography. The book introduces theory in tandem with applications. Information theory is taught alongside practical communication systems such as arithmetic coding for data compression and sparse-graph codes for error-correction. Inference techniques, including message-passing algorithms, Monte Carlo methods and variational approximations, are developed alongside applications to clustering, convolutional codes, independent component analysis, and neural networks. Uniquely, the book covers state-of-the-art error-correcting codes, including low-density-parity-check codes, turbo codes, and digital fountain codes - the twenty-first-century standards for satellite communications, disk drives, and data broadcast. Richly illustrated, filled with worked examples and over 400 exercises, some with detailed solutions, the book is ideal for self-learning, and for undergraduate or graduate courses. It also provides an unparalleled entry point for professionals in areas as diverse as computational biology, financial engineering and machine learning.
