Computational texture and patterns: from textons to deep learning
This slim volume considers the question of representing and matching textures and similar patterns. This question is closely related to recognition--for example, recognizing that something is a picture of a leafless tree--and segmentation, that is, picking out the distinct (leaved) trees in a... more
It has been pointed out by A. M. Turing in 1937 and by W. S. McCulloch and W. Pitts in 1943 that effectively constructive logics, that is, intuitionistic logics, can... more

Research for practice: troubling trends in machine-learning scholarship: Communications of the ACM

The article reviews the attention paid to an important issue in machine learning research, but the problem raised can be generalized to other fields within computer science and informatics. Machine learning and... more

Back to the future: Communications of the ACM

The name of this short article comes from the fact that the dawn of the Internet with the Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET) reintroduced the store-and-forward method used for telegraphs, but instead of human nodes that made information... more

Public Networks (C.2.3...) | Aug 15 19

Sentiment analysis for software engineering: ICSE 18

Sentiment analysis continues to be successfully applied to consumer reviews. In other areas, the challenges involved can prove insurmountable. A failed attempt to successfully apply sentiment analysis is reported... more

Algorithm 993: ACM Trans. on Mathematical Software

The Kronecker product of two matrices replaces each element of the first matrix with a multiple of a copy of the second matrix. The history, applications, and properties of the Kronecker and the symmetric products are... more

The challenge of crafting intelligible intelligence: Communications of the ACM

In the past decade, many algorithms and techniques have been classified as computational intelligence, machine learning, cognitive informatics, or data science, so much so that those approaches now fall... more

Natural language processing for social media (2nd ed.)

As social networks gain widespread popularity, they dominate all other forms of communication, particularly among youth (but of course not only). Perhaps this is because of real-time information and opinion... more

Vision & Scene Understanding (I.2.10) | Aug 16 19

Location-based gaming

Location-based games, an offshoot of more traditional video games, provide unique opportunities for interaction in shared public spaces, experiments in social dynamics, artistic exploration, and of course fun. In order to more fully understand the... more

Contactless 3D fingerprint identification

I am interested in machine learning (ML)-based image classification. Thus, I thought this book may be an interesting read about how ML techniques are applied to fingerprinting. As it turns out, the book is not about ML, but just plain mathematics and algorithms... more

You’ll see this message when it is too late

It seems not a day goes by without a media headline of some cybersecurity breach somewhere. Whether espionage, financial attack, or theft of personal data, we see a brief burst of hysteria followed by assurances that the problem is fixed, and then the media moves... more

Logic functions and equations (2nd ed.)

Logic functions, commonly known as Boolean functions, arise in many areas of computer science and information technology. On a fundamental technological level, every digital circuit can be modeled as a Boolean function. Design, optimization, and circuit synthesis... more

The book of why

In fields such as data science, explainable artificial intelligence (AI), and big data analytics, “why?” is the ultimate question that needs to be answered to make sense of real data. “Why?” has been the simplest question to advance science since the Age of... more

Calendrical calculations (4th ed.)

Calendrical computation is motivated by a collision between incommensurability and importance. The month (the time from one new moon to another) is not an integral number of days, and the year (the time between successive spring equinoxes) is not an... more
