   What can be computed?: A practical guide to the theory of computation
MacCormick J.,  PRINCETON UNIVERSITY PRESS, Princeton, NJ, 2018. 408 pp. Type: Book (978-0-691170-66-4)

What should be in a first course on the theory of computation? For 50 years, there has only been one answer: formal grammars and their corresponding automata. Hopcroft and Ullman’s book has been the standard [1], but there are dozens if not ...

  Applied minds: how engineers think
Madhavan G.,  W. W. Norton&Company, New York, NY, 2016. 272 pp. Type: Book (978-0-393353-01-3)

This book has been sitting on my shelf for a while; however, I have never had a chance to read it, thinking that being an engineer myself I know “how engineers think,” so why bother? I only recently started browsing it to find out more...

  An open door to number theory
Campbell D.,  AMERICAN MATHEMATICAL SOCIETY, Washington, DC, 2018. 283 pp. Type: Book (978-1-470443-48-1)

In 1993, my daughter showed me the New York Times article that announced Andrew Wiles’s 100-plus-page proof (to be successfully corrected two years later) of Fermat’s last theorem (FLT) [1]. Wiles’s “20th-centuryR...

   Assessing students’ IT professional values in a global project setting
Frezza S., Daniels M., Wilkin A.  ACM Transactions on Computing Education (TOCE) 19(2): 1-34, 2019. Type: Article

This paper is on developing a set of questions to assess students’ professional values. The context for the development is a project-based course involving three universities, two in the US and one in Sweden. Values formation is difficult to...

  The Internet of Things: enabling technologies, platforms, and use cases
Raj P., Raman A.,  CRC Press, Inc., Boca Raton, FL, 2017. 392 pp. Type: Book (978-1-498761-28-4)

The number of connected devices will soon be much bigger than the world population. The Internet of Things (IoT) is changing the Internet at a much faster pace than ever expected, and we are experiencing only the beginning of a new trend leading u...

   From being there to watching: shared and dedicated telepresence robot usage at academic conferences
Neustaedter C., Singhal S., Pan R., Heshmat Y., Forghani A., Tang J.  ACM Transactions on Computer-Human Interaction 25(6): 1-39, 2018. Type: Article

“I was there” is a sentence that in the future might be synonymous with remotely watching, or being telepresent. When the “being there“ means attending scientific events aimed at increasing scientific cooperation with peers...

  Data analysis techniques for physical scientists
Pruneau C.,  Cambridge University Press, New York, NY, 2017. 716 pp. Type: Book (978-1-108416-78-8)

To quote Shakespeare, “What’s in a name?” For Pruneau’s book Data analysis techniques for physical scientists, quite a bit it turns out. This great magnum opus (more than 700 pages) should be required reading for its...

  Crowdsourcing of sensor cloud services
Neiat A., Bouguettaya A.,  Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2018. 116 pp. Type: Book (978-3-319915-35-7)

With the ubiquitous distribution of mobile devices (smartphones, tablets, and so on equipped with a variety of sensory and wearable devices), users are able to generate different types of real-time information related to ambient air measurements, ...

  Advances in aeronautical informatics: technologies towards flight 4.0
Durak U., Becker J., Hartmann S., Voros N.,  Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2018. 156 pp. Type: Book (978-3-319750-57-6)

Let me preface this review by saying that as a small-time hobbyist pilot (single engine land), I fly when I may a little general aviation piston airplane; my day job as a computer professional pays for the gasoline. Advances in aeronautical inf...

   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 revolu...
