Newman M.,  Oxford University Press, Inc., New York, NY, 2018. 800 pp. Type: Book (978-0-198805-09-0)

In this revised and expanded edition of his 2010 seminal work [1,2], Newman updates the content to reflect developments in the field. The book is very comprehensive and consists of 18 chapters. It is divided into four distinct parts: “The Em...

   Dense 3D-convolutional neural network for person re-identification in videos
Liu J., Zha Z., Chen X., Wang Z., Zhang Y.  ACM Transactions on Multimedia Computing, Communications, and Applications 15(1s): 1-19, 2019. Type: Article

It is well known that the current types of neural networks perform quite well in identifying faces in (still) images. But what about re-identifying moving pedestrians in non-overlapping video sequences taken from different cameras?...

  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), Reviews: (2 of 2)

Teaching the theory of computation and complexity is tough. It is especially challenging for those ambitious teachers who wish to provide more than just the basic data that programmers ought to know. In fact, the basic data is quite a small set of...

   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...

  Human centered software product lines
Sottet J., Frey A., Vanderdonckt J.,  Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2017. 152 pp. Type: Book (978-3-319609-45-4)

To quote the authors of chapter 3, “[graphical user interface, GUI] design remains an open, wicked, complex and multifaceted problem, owing to ever increasing variability to design options resulting from multiple contexts of use, i.e, variou...

   A game theoretic model for the formation of navigable small-world networks--the tradeoff between distance and reciprocity
Yang Z., Chen W.  ACM Transactions on Internet Technology 18(4): 1-38, 2018. Type: Article

The concept of small-world networks has been developed to help explain how real whole-world social networks manage to be “navigable.” By navigable I mean the ease with which any two people can be connected with seemingly few intermedia...

   The human infrastructure of El Paquete, Cuba’s offline Internet
Dye M., Nemer D., Mangiameli J., Bruckman A., Kumar N.  interactions 26(1): 58-62, 2019. Type: Article

Cubans do not have online access to the Internet, nor instantaneous communication with people outside of Cuba. Even cellphone technology inside Cuba is limited. Responding to that void, an informal network of information workers has cobbled togeth...

   The discrete charm of the machine: why the world became digital
Steiglitz K.,  PRINCETON UNIVERSITY PRESS, Princeton, NJ, 2019. 256 pp. Type: Book (978-0-691179-43-8)

Digital computers have found their way into every aspect of modern life. They are now essential for work and ubiquitous in leisure, and used from childhood to retirement age, through every stage of adult life. Although the number of digital comput...

   Foundations of machine learning
Mohri M., Rostamizadeh A., Talwalkar A.,  The MIT Press, Cambridge, MA, 2012. 480 pp. Type: Book (978-0-262018-25-8)

Although machine learning is one of the newer major scientific domains, a tremendous number of papers have already been published, reporting progress in both theoretical research and practical developments. We have also seen a series of outstandin...

  Hawking’s nightmare
Batchelor D.  Communications of the ACM 62(2): 120-ff, 2019. Type: Article

Stephen Hawking once said,...
