This booklet is the 1st that provides an outline of the most subject matters all for the examine and implementation of Computer-Supported Collaborative studying (CSCL) from a studying point of view. it's also one of many few - or the one one - that does this from a learn and functional tutorial layout standpoint. Too many books commence with the medium and/or the environments used for CSCL, as though you will write a ebook on construction a home via focusing virtually totally on hammers, saws and screwdrivers. the most themes are clustered in 4 sections which are derived from opposite ordering the CSCL acronym, simply because CSCL is all approximately studying via collaboration that's supported via desktops. even though CSCL is more and more recommended in greater schooling, particular CSCL implementations - i.e. whatever greater than supplying expertise with no good constructed academic intent - are unusual in greater schooling. the themes lined during this ebook, every one together with a evaluate and a number of other examples of present most sensible practices in greater schooling, can stimulate 'informed' implementation of CSCL in greater schooling.

This booklet constitutes the refereed lawsuits of the sixth foreign Workshop on studying software program enterprises, LSO 2004, held in Banff, Canada in June 2004.
The thirteen revised complete papers and three revised brief papers awarded including an advent by way of the quantity editors have been conscientiously reviewed and chosen for presentation. The publication is dedicated to technical, organizational, and social strategies to difficulties of studying from earlier reviews and codifying the ensuing most sensible practices so that it will be utilized in next software program improvement efforts. The papers are geared up in topical sections on experience-based info structures, software program upkeep, groups of perform, making plans LSOs, and case reviews and adventure reports.

With a consistently expanding wish for normal and cozy human/machine interplay, the acoustic interface of any terminal for multimedia or telecommunication providers is challenged to permit seamless and hands-free audio communique. Sound trap for Human-Machine Interfaces introduces the sensible features of microphone array sign processing and offers a number of mixtures of beamforming and acoustic echo cancellation.

Neural networks are individuals of a category of software program that experience the aptitude to let clever computational structures in a position to simulating features of organic pondering and studying. at the moment no criteria exist to ensure and validate neural network-based platforms. NASA self reliant Verification and Validation Facility has reduced in size the Institute for clinical learn, Inc. to accomplish study in this subject and boost a complete consultant to acting V&V on adaptive platforms, with emphasis on neural networks utilized in safety-critical or mission-critical applications.
Methods and tactics for the Verification and Validation of synthetic Neural Networks is the end result of the 1st steps in that study. This quantity introduces many of the extra promising equipment and methods used for the verification and validation (V&V) of neural networks and adaptive platforms. A entire consultant to appearing V&V on neural community structures, aligned with the IEEE normal for software program Verification and Validation, will stick with this book.

This e-book constitutes the refereed complaints of the thirty seventh Annual German convention on synthetic Intelligence, KI 2014, held in Stuttgart, Germany, in September 2014. The 24 revised complete papers offered including 7 brief papers have been conscientiously reviewed and chosen from sixty two submissions. The papers are prepared in thematic issues on cognitive modeling, desktop imaginative and prescient, constraint pride, seek, and optimization, wisdom illustration and reasoning, computing device studying and information mining, making plans and scheduling.

The Social internet (including providers comparable to MySpace, Flickr, last.fm, and WordPress) has captured the eye of hundreds of thousands of clients in addition to billions of greenbacks in funding and acquisition. Social web content, evolving round the connections among humans and their gadgets of curiosity, are encountering obstacles within the components of knowledge integration, dissemination, reuse, portability, searchability, automation and important projects like querying. The Semantic net is a perfect platform for interlinking and acting operations on diversified individual- and object-related info to be had from the Social internet, and has produced numerous ways to beat the limits being skilled in Social internet software areas.
After a brief evaluate of either the Social net and the Semantic internet, Breslin et al. describe a few well known social media and social networking functions, checklist their strengths and obstacles, and describe a few functions of Semantic net know-how to handle their present shortcomings via bettering them with semantics. throughout those social web pages, they exhibit a twofold process for interconnecting the islands which are social web pages with semantic applied sciences, and for powering semantic functions with wealthy community-created content material. They finish with observations on how the applying of Semantic internet applied sciences to the Social internet is prime in the direction of the "Social Semantic net" (sometimes also known as "Web 3.0"), forming a community of interlinked and semantically-rich content material and knowledge.
The publication is meant for computing device technological know-how pros, researchers, and graduates drawn to realizing the applied sciences and study matters serious about employing Semantic internet applied sciences to social software program. Practitioners and builders drawn to functions akin to blogs, social networks or wikis also will know about tools for expanding the degrees of automation in those kinds of net communication.

It used to be a very good excitement to arrange the 1st foreign Workshop on Human habit knowing (HBU), which came about as a satellite tv for pc workshop to overseas convention on trend popularity (ICPR) on August 22, 2010, in Istanbul, Turkey. This workshop arose from the common marriage of trend recognitionwiththerapidlyadvancingareaofhumanbehavioranalysis.Ouraim was once to collect researchersdealing with the matter of modeling human habit lower than its a number of features (expression of feelings, demonstrate of relational attitudes, functionality of person or joint activities, etc.), with specific consciousness to development reputation ways that contain a number of modalities and people who version genuine dynamics of habit. The contiguity with ICPR, some of the most vital occasions within the p- tern popularity and laptop studying groups, is anticipated to foster cro- pollination with different components, for instance temporal trend mining or time - ries research, which proportion their very important methodological features with human habit figuring out. additionally, the presence of this workshop at ICPR was once intended to draw researchers, specifically PhD scholars and postd- toral researchers, to paintings at the questions of human habit realizing that's more likely to play an important position in destiny applied sciences (ambient intelligence, human–robot interplay, arti?cial social intelligence, etc.), as witnessed through a couple of researche?orts aimed toward accumulating and annotating huge units of multi sensor data,collected from observingpeople in naturaland frequently technologically difficult conditions.
