Download Sentic Computing: A Common-Sense-Based Framework for by Erik Cambria, Amir Hussain PDF

By Erik Cambria, Amir Hussain

This quantity provides a knowledge-based method of concept-level sentiment research on the crossroads among affective computing, details extraction, and commonsense computing, which exploits either machine and social sciences to raised interpret and method details on the internet.
Concept-level sentiment research is going past an insignificant word-level research of textual content which will allow a extra effective passage from (unstructured) textual details to (structured) machine-processable information, in most likely any domain.

Readers will become aware of the subsequent key novelties, that make this method so designated and avant-garde, being reviewed and discussed:
• Sentic Computing's multi-disciplinary method of sentiment analysis-evidenced through the concomitant use of AI, linguistics and psychology for wisdom illustration and inference
• Sentic Computing’s shift from syntax to semantics-enabled via the adoption of the bag-of-concepts version rather than easily counting be aware co-occurrence frequencies in text
• Sentic Computing's shift from records to linguistics-implemented through permitting sentiments to stream from notion to notion in line with the dependency relation among clauses

This quantity is the 1st within the sequence Socio-Affective Computing edited through Dr Amir Hussain and Dr Erik Cambria and may be of curiosity to researchers within the fields of socially clever, affective and multimodal human-machine interplay and systems.

Download Crassulacean Acid Metabolism: Analysis of an Ecological by Professor Dr. M. Kluge, Professor I. P. Ting (auth.) PDF

By Professor Dr. M. Kluge, Professor I. P. Ting (auth.)

The acid metabolism of yes succulent vegetation, referred to now as Crassulacean Acid Metabolism (CAM) has involved plant physiologists and biochemists for the final one and a part centuries. besides the fact that, because the uncomplicated discoveries of De Saussure in 1804 that stem joints of Opuntia have been in a position to get rid of CO from the two surroundings in the course of the evening, and of Heyne in 1815 (see Wolf, 1960) that natural acids collect within the leaves of Bryophyllum calycinum through the evening, the 2 major facets of CAM, diurnal CO gasoline trade and metabolism of malic acid, 2 have first been studied approximately independently. therefore, it isn't mind-blowing that the majority learn to explain the mechanism of CAM has been over the past 15 years on the grounds that CO alternate and malate metabolism have been studied and interpreted in its 2 context. those efforts ultimately ended in a transparent awareness that the CAM phenom­ enon is a version at the mode of the way vegetation can photosynthetically harvest CO from the ambience. 2 the translation of CAM during this experience was once prompted by way of the invention of one other version of photosynthesis, the C -pathway (see Black, 1973; Hatch and four Slack, 1970; Hatch, 1976). simply because this newly found photosynthetic pathway is famous to be very heavily regarding the CAM pathway, the paintings at the latter turned intensified in the course of those final years.

Download Neoliberalismus: Analysen und Alternativen by Christoph Butterwegge, Bettina Lösch, Ralf (Eds.) Ptak, Ralf PDF

By Christoph Butterwegge, Bettina Lösch, Ralf (Eds.) Ptak, Ralf Ptak

Der Neoliberalismus hat in den letzten Jahren weite Bereiche unserer Gesellschaft geprägt. Es ist ihm gelungen, zumindest in einem Großteil der medialen Öffe- lichkeit die Legitimität des grundgesetzlich geschützten Sozialstaates – erstmals nach 1945 – zu erschüttern und dessen Säulen ins Wanken zu bringen. In den Köpfen der Menschen hat der Neoliberalismus vorgebliche „Selbstverständli- keiten“ verankert, aber auch jenseits der ideologischen Ebene die materielle Rea- tät vieler Menschen verändert. Inzwischen zeigen sich zwar Risse in dem auf Hochglanz polierten Gebäude. Wie groß die Chancen sind, über die Formul- rung von Alternativen wieder eine emanzipatorische Perspektive zu gewinnen, hängt jedoch nicht zuletzt von der fundierten Bilanzierung des Phänomens N- liberalismus ab, additionally von einer präzisen examine, wie sich die ökonomischen, - litischen und sozialen Kräfteverhältnisse verändert haben und wo sich Ansa- punkte finden oder entwickeln lassen, die eine solidarische Entwicklungsri- tung der Gesellschaft möglich machen. Eben dazu trägt dieser Sammelband bei. Jene Variante neoliberaler Politik, die wir hierzulande in den vergangenen Jahren erlebt haben, unterscheidet sich erheblich von der brachialen Konfronta- on, mit der Margaret Thatcher ihre Politik in Großbritannien ab Ende der 70er- Jahre durchgesetzt hat – im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes mit aller Gewalt gegen Gewerkschaften und andere Gegner/innen ihres Kurses. In der Bundesrepublik hat sich die Umsetzung neoliberaler Politik eher schleichend vollzogen, sozu- gen durch die Hintertür, inszeniert als Sachzwang und geduldig in der Er- dung von Protesten, z. B. gegen die Abschaffung der Arbeitslosenhilfe („Hartz IV“).

Download Risk-based reliability analysis and generic principles for by Michael T. Todinov PDF

By Michael T. Todinov

For a very long time, traditional reliability analyses were orientated in the direction of settling on the extra trustworthy process and preoccupied with maximising the reliability of engineering platforms. at the foundation of counterexamples notwithstanding, we display that picking the extra trustworthy process doesn't unavoidably suggest making a choice on the approach with the smaller losses from mess ups! accordingly, reliability analyses may still inevitably be risk-based, associated with the losses from disasters. hence, a theoretical framework and types are provided which shape the principles of the reliability research and reliability allocation associated with the losses from mess ups. An underlying topic within the e-book is the elemental precept for a risk-based layout: the bigger the price of failure linked to an element, the bigger its minimal beneficial reliability point. Even exact elements will be designed to varied reliability degrees if their mess ups are linked to diverse losses. in keeping with a classical definition, the danger of failure is a manufactured from the chance of failure and the associated fee given failure. This chance degree notwithstanding can't describe the chance of losses exceeding a greatest applicable restrict. generally the losses from disasters were 'accounted for' via the typical creation availability (the ratio of the particular construction capability and the utmost construction capacity). As tested within the publication by utilizing an easy counterexample, structures with an identical creation availability should be characterized by means of very diverse losses from mess ups. as a substitute, a brand new aggregated danger degree in response to the cumulative distribution of the aptitude losses has been brought and the theoretical framework for chance research in accordance with the idea that strength losses has additionally been built. This new hazard degree comprises the uncertainty linked to the publicity to losses and the uncertainty within the effects given the publicity. For repairable platforms with complicated topology, the distribution of the capability losses will be published by means of simulating the behaviour of structures in the course of their life-cycle. For this goal, quickly discrete event-driven simulators are provided able to monitoring the aptitude losses for structures with advanced topology, composed of a big variety of parts. The simulators are in line with new, very effective algorithms for process reliability research of platforms comprising millions of elements. an enormous subject matter within the publication are the normal ideas and methods for lowering technical possibility. those were labeled into 3 significant different types: preventive (reducing the chance of failure), protecting (reducing the results from failure) and twin (reducing either, the chance and the implications from failure). lots of those rules (for instance: averting clustering of occasions, intentionally introducing vulnerable hyperlinks, lowering sensitivity, introducing alterations with contrary signal, etc.) are mentioned within the reliability literature for the 1st time. major house has been allotted to part reliability. within the final bankruptcy of the e-book, numerous functions are mentioned of a strong equation which constitutes the middle of a brand new thought of in the neighborhood initiated part failure via flaws whose quantity is a random variable. This ebook has been written on the way to fill gigantic gaps within the reliability and threat literature: the risk-based reliability research as a robust substitute to the conventional reliability research and the usual ideas for decreasing technical probability. i am hoping that the foundations, types and algorithms provided within the e-book may help to fill those gaps and make the ebook precious to reliability and risk-analysts, researchers, specialists, scholars and working towards engineers. - deals a shift within the latest paradigm for undertaking reliability analyses. - Covers risk-based reliability research and widely used rules for lowering chance. - offers a brand new degree of hazard in response to the distribution of the aptitude losses from failure in addition to the elemental ideas for risk-based layout. - accommodates quickly algorithms for method reliability research and discrete-event simulators. - contains the likelihood of failure of a constitution with advanced form expressed with an easy equation.
