  General video game artificial intelligence
Pérez Liébana D., Lucas S., Gaina R., Togelius J., Khalifa A., Liu J.,  Morgan & Claypool, San Rafael, CA, 2020. 192 pp. Type: Book (978-1-681736-46-4)

It’s a jungle out there: exploding asteroids, fire-breathing dragons, and maniacal cultists, among other lethal threats. What and how can you teach newborn babies, somehow fitted with a hero’s body and magical weapons, to defend themse...

  Fundamentals of artificial intelligence
Chowdhary K.,  Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2020. 746 pp. Type: Book (978-8-132239-70-3)

This book introduces the fundamentals of artificial intelligence (AI). It can be used as a computer science (CS) textbook for graduate or undergraduate students, or as a resource for researchers....

  Computer security and the Internet
van Oorschot P.,  Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2020. 387 pp. Type: Book (978-3-030336-48-6), Reviews: (1 of 2)

Security is a hot, yet tough, topic these days. Computer security, in a broad sense, spans several interdisciplinary areas. It is sometimes difficult to identify good literature, both to grasp the essential ideas and to be able to teach them. This...

  Cybersecurity is not very important
Odlyzko A.  Ubiquity 2019(June): 1-23, 2019. Type: Article

Hardly a day goes by without media reports of dramatic cybersecurity breaches somewhere in the world, and we have come to accept that substantial resources are needed to prevent these attacks. Little thought, however, is generally given as to whet...

  Computing the geometric intersection number of curves
Despré V., Lazarus F.  Journal of the ACM 66(6): 1-49, 2019. Type: Article

More than a century ago, Poincaré asked for a procedure to determine if a closed curve γ on a compact surface S could be contracted to a point, and suggested a computationally expensive method. Dehn proposed a simpler ...

  Machine learning and artificial intelligence
Joshi A.,  Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2019. 261 pp. Type: Book (978-3-030266-21-9)

With a good balance of theory and practice, the book effectively combines machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) topics. Unlike other books on AI, Machine learning and artificial intelligence is not very mathematically inten...

  Rethinking regex engines to address ReDoS
Davis J.  ESEC/FSE 2019 (Proceedings of the 2019 27th ACM Joint Meeting on European Software Engineering Conference and Symposium on the Foundations of Software Engineering, Tallinn, Estonia,  Aug 26-30, 2019) 1256-1258, 2019. Type: Proceedings

Regular expressions (regexes) are widely used across computer science applications and software components. However, not all programming languages are immune to regular expression denial-of-service (ReDoS) attacks. These algorithmic complexity att...

  Mastering frequency domain techniques for the stability analysis of LTI time delay systems
Sipahi R.,  SIAM-Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, Philadelphia, PA, 2019. 174 pp. Type: Book (978-1-611975-71-0)

Time delay systems are ubiquitous. They are found in controllers of all sorts, where information from sensors may undergo a delay (perhaps computational) before being used as control inputs. Some systems experience delays where the control structu...

  Transformative teaching: a collection of stories of engineering faculty’s pedagogical journeys
Kellam N., Boklage A., Coley B.,  Morgan&Claypool Publishers, San Rafael, CA, 2019. 126 pp. Type: Book (978-1-681735-45-0)

Teaching in higher education institutions is often a challenge, especially for those new to the profession. Classes/eligibility are typically not prescribed for teachers in this space, apart from subject knowledge. This can result in mediocre teac...

  Computer security and the Internet
van Oorschot P.,  Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2020. 387 pp. Type: Book (978-3-030336-48-6), Reviews: (2 of 2)

Paul C. van Oorschot is a master who has made many diverse contributions to computer system security (very much including systems connected by the Internet), from applied cryptography to system usability. This range is a strength of the book: whil...
