   Research for practice: troubling trends in machine-learning scholarship
Lipton Z., Steinhardt J.  Communications of the ACM 62(6): 45-53, 2019. Type: Article

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....

   Computational texture and patterns: from textons to deep learning
Dana K.,  Morgan&Claypool Publishers, San Rafael, CA, 2018. 113 pp. Type: Book (978-1-681730-11-0)

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 segmentatio...

   Natural language processing for social media (2nd ed.)
Farzindar A., Inkpen D., Hirst G.,  Morgan&Claypool Publishers, San Rafael, CA, 2018. 196 pp. Type: Book (978-1-681736-12-9)

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 exchange; another reason seems to be a v...

  Computer architecture: a quantitative approach (6th ed.)
Hennessy J., Patterson D.,  Morgan Kaufmann Publishers Inc., Cambridge, MA, 2019. 936 pp. Type: Book (978-0-128119-05-1), Reviews: (2 of 2)

After getting the basics from another Patterson and Hennessy book [1], reading Computer architecture: a quantitative approach is a perfect way to understand more advanced computer architecture concepts. The book mostly presents the parallel...

  Frequency domain techniques for H control of distributed parameter systems
Özbay H., Gümüssoy S., Kashima K., Yamamoto Y.,  SIAM-Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, Philadelphia, PA, 2018. 192 pp. Type: Book (978-1-611975-39-0)

In traditional control theory, the object to be controlled (called a plant) is described by a differential equation (or by a system of such equations) in which the rate of change of the plant’s state depends on the current control value. Ana...

  Basic music technology: an introduction
Mazzola G., Pang Y., Heinze W., Gkoudina K., Pujakusuma G., Grunklee J., Chen Z., Hu T., Ma Y.,  Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2018. 200 pp. Type: Book (978-3-030009-81-6)

Any technology can be an applied science that is of use to society. Technology related to music assists in both its creativity and its management. More precisely, the term “music technology,” as defined by the authors, relates to the d...

  Fault-tolerant network-on-chip design with flexible spare core placement
Bhanu P., Kulkarni P., J S.  ACM Journal on Emerging Technologies in Computing Systems 15(1): 1-23, 2019. Type: Article

Swapping a defective core on a reliable network-on-chip (NoC) system requires swift access to an extra core. But how should an efficient fault-tolerant NoC algorithm for flexibly placing a spare core in a mesh network be designed? Bhanu et al. pre...

  Computer vision: principles, algorithms, applications, learning (5th ed.)
Davies E.,  ACADEMIC PRESS, San Diego, CA, 2018. 900 pp. Type: Book (978-0-128092-84-2)

It is rare to get a book that you don’t want to put down, but also one you can’t keep holding. At almost 900 pages, this is not a book that anyone can hold in hand and read for long; however, it so exhaustively covers this important to...

  Goal-directed decision making: computations and neural circuits
Morris R., Bornstein A., Shenhav A.,  Academic Press, Inc., San Diego, CA, 2018. 484 pp. Type: Book (978-0-128120-98-9)

In the past few years, many disciplines have merged together for an improved understanding of goal-directed decisions. Such disciplines include neuroscience, psychology, cognitive science, and computer science (CS). This edited book on goal-direct...

   Encounters with HCI pioneers: a personal history and photo journal
Shneiderman B.,  Morgan&Claypool Publishers, San Rafael, CA, 2019. 187 pp. Type: Book (978-1-681734-78-1)

Personal computing really only emerged thanks to the ease of user experience design (UXD) and the discipline of human-computer interaction (HCI). In this volume, the author describes his personal democratizing experience with a small group of rese...
