YARN Essentials

YARN is the next generation generic resource platform used to manage resources in a typical cluster and is designed to support multitenancy in its core architecture. As optimal resource utilization is central to the design of YARN, learning how to fully utilize the available fine-grained resources (RAM, CPU cycles, and so on) in the cluster becomes vital.

Artificial Intelligence for .NET

Get introduced to the world of artificial intelligence with this accessible and practical guide. Build applications that make intelligent use of language and user interaction to better compete in today’s marketplace. Discover how your application can deeply understand and interpret content on the web or a user’s machine, intelligently react to direct user interaction through speech or text, or make smart recommendations on products or services that are tailored to each individual user.

Pro Apache JMeter

Quickly ramp up your practical knowledge of Apache JMeter for software performance testing and focus on actual business problems. This step-by-step guide covers what you will need to know to write and execute test scripts, and verify the results. Pro Apache JMeter covers almost every aspect of Apache JMeter in detail and includes helpful screenshots and a case study. A performance primer chapter provides a high-level summary of terms used in performance testing on a day-to-day basis that also is useful for non-technical readers.

Quick Clojure

Get up to speed with Clojure in this quick and practical primer. You’ll learn the nuts and bolts of functional programming, data structures, sequences, destructuring, pattern matching, polymorphism, concurrency, conventions, and more. Author Mark McDonnell talks about organization with namespaces; how to change the language via macros; object-oriented programming; and creating command-line apps. Finally, he shows you how to write Clojure from shell languages and interfaces such as Vim.

Docker for Data Science

Learn Docker “infrastructure as code” technology to define a system for performing standard but non-trivial data tasks on medium- to large-scale data sets, using Jupyter as the master controller. It is not uncommon for a real-world data set to fail to be easily managed. The set may not fit well into access memory or may require prohibitively long processing. These are significant challenges to skilled software engineers and they can render the standard Jupyter system unusable.

Pro Processing for Images and Computer Vision with OpenCV

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.

Swarms and Network Intelligence in Search

This book offers a comprehensive analysis of the theory and tools needed for the development of an efficient and robust infrastructure for the design of collaborative patrolling unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) swarms, focusing on its applications for tactical intelligence drones. It discusses frameworks for robustly and near-optimally analyzing flocks of semi-autonomous vehicles designed to efficiently perform the ongoing dynamic patrolling and scanning of pre-defined “search regions”. It discusses the theoretical limitations of such systems, as well as the trade-offs between the systems’ various economic and operational parameters.
