Closed Loop Neuroscience addresses the technical aspects of closed loop neurophysiology, presenting the implementation of these approaches spanning several domains of neuroscience, from cellular and network neurophysiology, through sensory and motor systems, and then clinical therapeutic devices. Although closed-loop approaches have long been a part of the neuroscientific toolbox, these techniques are only now gaining popularity in research and clinical applications. As there is not yet a comprehensive methods book addressing the topic as a whole, this volume fills that gap, presenting state-of-the-art approaches and the technical advancements that enable their application to different scientific problems in neuroscience. Presents the first volume to offer researchers a comprehensive overview of the technical realities of employing closed loop techniques in their work Offers application to in-vitro, in-vivo, and hybrid systems Contains an emphasis on the actual techniques used rather than on specific results obtained Includes exhaustive protocols and descriptions of software and hardware, making it easy for readers to implement the proposed methodologies Encompasses the clinical/neuroprosthetic aspect and how these systems can also be used to contribute to our understanding of basic neurophysiology Edited work with chapters authored by leaders in the field from around the globe – the broadest, most expert coverage available

As the first volume of World Scientific Encyclopedia with Semantic Computing and Robotic Intelligence, this volume is designed to lay the foundation for the understanding of the Semantic Computing (SC), as a core concept to study Robotic Intelligence in the subsequent volumes. This volume aims to provide a reference to the development of Semantic Computing, in the terms of "meaning", "context", and "intention". It brings together a series of technical notes, in average, no longer than 10 pages in length, each focuses on one topic in Semantic Computing; being review article or research paper, to explain the fundamental concepts, models or algorithms, and possible applications of the technology concerned. This volume will address three core areas in Semantic Computing: Understanding the (possibly naturally-expressed) intentions (semantics) of users and expressing them in a machine-processable format: Semantics description languages, ontology integration, interoperabilityUnderstanding the meanings (semantics) of computational content (of various sorts, including, but is not limited to, text, video, audio, process, network, software and hardware) and expressing them in a machine-processable format in Multimedia, IoT, SDN, wearable computing, interfacable with mobile computing, search engines, question answering, web services, to support applications in biomedicine, healthcare, manufacturing, engineering, education, finance, entertainment, business, science and humanityMapping the semantics of the user in context for content retrieval, management, creation in the form of structured data, image and video, audio and speech, big data, natural language, deep learning.

While the PSE community continues its focus on understanding, synthesizing, modeling, designing, simulating, analyzing, diagnosing, operating, controlling, managing, and optimizing a host of chemical and related industries using the systems approach, the boundaries of PSE research have expanded considerably over the years. While early PSE research was largely concerned with individual units and plants, the current research spans wide ranges of scales in size (molecules to processing units to plants to global multinational enterprises to global supply chain networks; biological cells to ecological webs) and time (instantaneous molecular interactions to months of plant operation to years of strategic planning). The changes and challenges brought about by increasing globalization and the the common global issues of energy, sustainability, and environment provide the motivation for the theme of PSE2012: Process Systems Engineering and Decision Support for the Flat World. Each theme includes an invited chapter based on the plenary presentation by an eminent academic or industrial researcher Reports on the state-of-the-art advances in the various fields of process systems engineering Addresses common global problems and the research being done to solve them

Die Autoren geben eine fundierte Einführung in die Informatik, die von Anfang an die Zusammenhänge zwischen den Teilgebieten des Faches betont. Das Buch ist kompakt, weil der gemeinsame Kern der verschiedenen Informatikgebiete betrachtet wird. In einer integrativen Sichtweise werden Modellierung, abstrakte Datentypen, Algorithmen sowie nebenläufige und verteilte Programmierung behandelt. Die grundlegenden Konzepte der Informatik werden dabei mittels der Programmiersprache Java realisiert. Wesentliches Anliegen der Autoren ist es, die Informatik als Wissenschaft der Abstraktion herauszustellen und in diesem Sinne den Studierenden allgemeine Methoden zum Lösen praktischer Probleme zu vermitteln. Lernkontrollen und ein effektiver Index, der vor allem diejenigen Begriffe aufführt, die ein Informatiker einfach können muss, ermöglichen ein fokussiertes Studium. Ferner stehen vielfältige Programm-Beispiele im Internet bereit.

Message Passing Interface (MPI) ist ein Protokoll, das parallel Berechnungen auf verteilten, heterogenen, lose-gekoppelten Computersystemen ermöglicht. Das Buch beginnt mit einem kurzen Überblick über parallele Entwicklungsumgebungen und führt in die grundlegenden Konzepte ein. Anschließend wird gezeigt, wie anhand von graphischen Analysewerkzeugen die Leistungsfähigkeit eines Programms getestet werden kann. Die grundlegenden Fähigkeiten von MPI werden mittels des Poisson-Problems erörtert und gezeigt, wie MPI zur Umsetzung von virtuellen Topologien genutzt werden kann. Zur Illustration von anspruchsvolleren Funktionen des Message-Passing in MPI wird auf das N-Körper-Problem eingegangen. Nach einem Vergleich von MPI-Implementierungen mit anderen Systemen wird das Buch durch Sprachfestlegungen für C-, C++ und Fortran-Versionen aller MPI-Routinen abgerundet.

Die Vereinbarkeit von Arbeit und Familie von Führungskräften

Eine theoretische und empirische Betrachtung individueller Ansatzpunkte und Potenziale

Author: Maxi Raida

Maxi Raida untersucht basierend auf Erkenntnissen der Stressliteratur und der Work-Family-Forschung, wie Führungskräfte durch die Gestaltung der Grenzen von Arbeit und Familie Konflikte zwischen den Lebensbereichen bewältigen können. Sie zeigt, dass der wirtschaftliche und gesellschaftliche Wandel insbesondere Führungskräfte vor die Herausforderung stellt, die Anforderungen im Arbeits- und im Familienleben miteinander zu vereinbaren. Bisherige Ansätze für eine bessere Vereinbarkeit der beiden Lebensbereiche stützen sich auf organisationale Lösungen und vernachlässigen individuelle Handlungsmöglichkeiten. Mithilfe eines Multi-Source-Datensatzes zeigt die Autorin, dass die Vereinbarkeit von Arbeit und Familie durch räumliche und zeitliche Grenzen positiv beeinflusst werden kann und dadurch das Wohlbefinden und die Leistungsfähigkeit gefördert wird.

Computer sind mittlerweile so intelligent geworden, dass die nächste industrielle Revolution unmittelbar bevorsteht. Wer profitiert, wer verliert? Antworten auf diese Fragen bietet das neue Buch der Technologie-Profis Erik Brynjolfsson und Andrew McAfee. Seit Jahren arbeiten wir mit Computern - und Computer für uns. Mittlerweile sind die Maschinen so intelligent geworden, dass sie zu Leistungen fähig sind, die vor Kurzem noch undenkbar waren: Sie fahren Auto, sie schreiben eigene Texte - und sie besiegen Großmeister im Schach. Dieser Entwicklungssprung ist nur der Anfang. In ihrem neuen Buch zeigen zwei renommierte Professoren, welch atemberaubende Entwicklungen uns noch bevorstehen: Die zweite industrielle Revolution kommt! Welche Auswirkungen wird das haben? Welche Chancen winken, welche Risiken drohen? Was geschieht dabei mit den Menschen, was mit der Umwelt? Und was werden Gesellschaft und Politik tun, um die Auswirkungen dieser "neuen digitalen Intelligenz" für alle bestmöglich zu gestalten? Dieses Buch nimmt Sie mit auf eine Reise in eine Zukunft, die schon längst begonnen hat.
