A first journey through logic
I have, for years and to largely underwhelmed ears, preached without portfolio the risk of treating connotation as denotation. So “first journey” in this book’s title indicated, to me, a not-especially-deep excursion into some selected subtopics of mathematical logic. Well, the depth and rigor of the treatment here were a positive... more
No, the future offers very little hope for those who expect that our new mechanical slaves will offer us a world in which we may rest from thinking. Help us they... more

Mining the semantic web: Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery

The semantic version of the World Wide Web (WWW), the semantic web, allows for formal reasoning and querying. It has two components: formal ontologies, which provide domain-specific knowledge, and annotations of web resources, which can be... more

Algorithmic poverty: Communications of the ACM

The lack of transparency in algorithms and the data they use is a matter of current interest. In addition to a nontransparent process, results are also nontransparent, lacking explanation or justification. These problems... more

Survey on mining subjective data on the web: Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery

When accessing information on the web, users not only consume the information but also comment on and actively annotate the content, which then generates new content and can also provide ratings. People... more

Design thinking and research: interrogating the doing

This 400-plus-page edited book was published as part of Springer’s “Understanding Innovation” series. Both the series editors and this volume’s editors are Christoph Meinel and Larry Leifer. An annoying feature of most recently edited books is the lack of a... more
