Introduction to the senses: from biology to computer science
Bossomaier T., Cambridge University Press, New York, NY, 2012. 358 pp. Type: Book (978-0-521812-66-5)
In this book, Bossomaier discusses the various senses in humans and other species from biological and computer science or mathematical perspectives. Recent advances in the related fields of medicine (such as retinal and cochlear implants) and...
An introduction to audio content analysis: applications in signal processing and music informatics
Lerch A., Wiley-IEEE Press, Hoboken, NJ, 2012. 272 pp. Type: Book (978-1-118266-82-3), Reviews: (2 of 2)
Audio content analysis (ACA) is actually a subtopic of the broader music information retrieval (MIR) research area. This subtopic deals with bringing out musical and perceptual properties directly from the audio signals to improve human-computer...
A systematic review of business and information technology alignment
Ullah A., Lai R. ACM Transactions on Management Information Systems 4(1): 1-30, 2013. Type: Article
This paper, as its title suggests, provides a thorough and systematic, if at times tedious, review of the literature on the alignment between business strategy and information technology (IT) strategy. The authors identify target journals and...
Burdick A., Drucker J., Lunenfeld P., Presner T., Schnapp J., The MIT Press, Cambridge, MA, 2012. 152 pp. Type: Book (978-0-262018-47-0)
The authors of this book construct a metalogue--“a dialogue that assumes the form of that which it discusses”--about the emerging field of digital humanities. The term “refers to new modes of scholarship and...
Projects and complexity
Varanini F., Ginevri W., Auerbach Publications, Boston, MA, 2012. 327 pp. Type: Book (978-1-466502-79-6)
Projects can be complex, involving internal as well as external stakeholders, and sometimes unique technologies, and they often fail or have huge cost overruns. Traditional execution-based project planning tools and methods often fail because...
Computer Graphics: Helping to Cope with Terrorism
IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications Staff . IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications 22(2): 16-23, 2002. Type: Article
The attack on the World Trade Center (WTC) in New York City on September 11th, 2001 is the focus of this paper. It concentrates mainly on issues to do with informing the general public of events, helping mitigate their effects, and assisting with ...
Prediction of breast cancer using artificial neural networks
Saritas I. Journal of Medical Systems 36(5): 2901-2907, 2012. Type: Article
The problem of cancer detection and diagnosis is ideally suited for machine learning methods. The goal is to develop a diagnostic model of biological measures extracted from imaging methods, such as mammography, or pathology assays, such as...

Introduction to the art of programming using Scala
Lewis M., Chapman&Hall/CRC, Boca Raton, FL, 2013. 936 pp. Type: Book (978-1-439896-66-2), Reviews: (2 of 2)
The emergence of the Scala programming language over the past few years is due to some of its peculiar features. Scala leverages proven design patterns from lesser-known programming languages like Erlang, and mixes a functional programming style...
The physics of quantum information: quantum cryptography, quantum teleportation, quantum computation
Bouwmeester D., Ekert A., Zeilinger A. Springer-Verlag, London, UK, 2000. Type: Divisible Book
A century ago, the discovery of quantum mechanics initiated a revolution in physics that challenged many deeply-held intuitions. Within the last 20 years, the application of quantum mechanics to computation has opened the door to a similar...
