Mobile Application Development, Usability, and Security provides a thorough overview on the different facets of mobile technology management and its integration into modern society. Highlighting issues related to analytics, cloud computing, and different types of application development, this book is a pivotal reference source for professionals, researchers, upper-level students, and practitioners actively involved in the area of mobile computing.

Innovative Research in Attention Modeling and Computer Vision Applications

Robotics and autonomous systems can aid disabled individuals in daily living or make a workplace more productive, but these tools are only as effective as the technology behind them. Robotic systems must be able to accurately identify and act upon elements in their environment to be effective in performing their duties.

Pattern Analysis: Methods, Applications and Challenges

This book reviews methods, applications and challenges of pattern analysis. Chapter One addresses the identification problem of the printed medieval documents origin. The authors of Chapter Two perform a review on current cheiloscopic techniques, addressing the study methodology and usefulness of lip print patterns study. Chapter Three examines theoretical bases of human identification using palatal rugae pattern, and addresses the study methodology and techniques, potentialities and future usefulness of palatal rugae patterns. Chapter Four focuses on variable-scale-based pattern analysis for time series of wind speed, atmospheric pressure, and atmospheric temperature.

Scaling a Software Business: The Digitalization Journey

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license. This book is intended primarily for practitioners who are facing the “softwareisation” of their business. It presents the Scaling Management Framework, a model based on collected experiences from companies that have already made the journey to give software a central role within the organization. The model is unique because it suggests a holistic method to analyze and plan your journey. It simply means that you can’t just focus solely on your products or services. You also have to look closely at your processes and your organization, the way you make decisions and get things done. Inevitably, these will have to change.

Enabling the Internet of Things: From Integrated Circuits to Integrated Systems

This book offers the first comprehensive view on integrated circuit and system design for the Internet of Things (IoT), and in particular for the tiny nodes at its edge. The authors provide a fresh perspective on how the IoT will evolve based on recent and foreseeable trends in the semiconductor industry, highlighting the key challenges, as well as the opportunities for circuit and system innovation to address them. This book describes what the IoT really means from the design point of view, and how the constraints imposed by applications translate into integrated circuit requirements and design guidelines. Chapter contributions equally come from industry and academia.

Pro Processing for Images and Computer Vision with OpenCV: Solutions for Media Artists and Creative Coders

Apply the Processing language to tasks involved in computer vision--tasks such as edge and corner detection, recognition of motion between frames in a video, recognition of objects, matching of feature points and shapes in different frames for tracking purposes, and more. You will manipulate images through creative effects, geometric transformation, blending of multiple images, and so forth. Examples are provided.

Language Development, 5th Edition

Erika Hoff's LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT, 5th Edition communicates both the content and the excitement of this quickly evolving field. By presenting a balanced treatment that examines all sides of the issues, Hoff helps readers understand different theoretical points of view and the research processes that have lead theorists to their findings. After an overview and history of the field, Hoff thoroughly covers the biological bases of language development and the core topics of phonological, lexical, and syntactic development.

Digital Marketing, 6th Edition

'I have used this book in all its editions since first publication with my undergraduate and postgraduate students. It is a core text for all the students, because it provides the detail they require at an academic level. Importantly it is a book for the practitioner to use too. This is why we use it on our postgraduate practitioner programmes – where we actually buy the book for the students as we believe it is that important. No other text comes close and literally thousands of our graduates have benefitted from it in their subsequent careers: written by the specialist for the specialist.'
