3rd National Local Government Research Forum

The Local Government Researchers' Forum is a biennial forum for local government researchers and practitioners to present current research in the sector and discuss the implications for policy and practice. The format includes streamed sessions, panel discussions and a concluding debate.

4000 Years of Migration and Cultural Exchange

The project reported on in this monograph has been concerned with the archaeology of the Batanes Islands, an archipelago that must have been settled quite early in the process of Austronesian dispersal from Taiwan southwards into the Philippines.

The 1970s
The 1970s Sented by Rebecca

This book draws a sociological portrait of the age group born in the 1970s in Estonia and discusses its generational features and constructions.

Internet Super-User Textbook

In November 2009, we spent many days at GetSmarter HQ brainstorming ideas for new online courses. During this time, we analysed our past students for clues on what courses we should be presenting next, and we realised that thousands of our past students represented some of the smartest people in the country.

Haptics Rendering and Applications

There has been significant progress in haptic technologies but the incorporation of haptics into virtual environments is still in its infancy.

Humanoid Robots: New Developments

For many years, the human being has been trying, in all ways, to recreate the complex mechanisms that form the human body.

Virtual Reality: Human Computer Interaction

This book will introduce the history and development of human–computer interaction ( HCI ) and Virtual Reality / Augmented Reality /Mixed Reality. I tried to analyze three most representive technologies;

Computational Biology and Applied Bioinformatics

Nowadays it is difficult to imagine an area of knowledge that can continue developing without the use of computers and informatics. It is not different with biology, that has seen an unpredictable growth in recent decades, with the rise of a new discipline, bioinformatics, bringing together molecular biology, biotechnology and information technology.

Automation and control: theory and practice

The first thematic part of the book is devoted to automation. This includes solving of assembly line balancing problem and design of software architecture for cognitive assembling in production systems. The second part of the book concerns different aspects of modelling and control.

Stereo Depth Map Construction
Stereo Depth Map Construction Sented by Sarah Gerdes

The human eyes both take independent "photos" at different angles and positons. The remarkable thing about the human brain is that it is able to use both images to recreate the 3D world. It does this very quickly and remarkably accuratly.

Introduction to Autonomous Robots
Introduction to Autonomous Robots Sented by Steve Bark

This book provides an algorithmic perspective to autonomous robotics to students with a sophomore-level of linear algebra and probability theory. Robotics is an emerging field at the intersection of mechanical and electrical engineering with computer science. With computers becoming more powerful, making robots smart is getting more and more into the focus of attention and robotics research most challenging frontier.

Logical Reasoning
Logical Reasoning Sented by Emma

The goal of this book is to improve your logical-reasoning skills. Your logical-reasoning skills are a complex weave of abilities that help you get someone's point, generate reasons for your own point, evaluate the reasons given by others, decide what or what not to do, decide what information to accept or reject, explain a complicated idea, apply conscious quality control as you think, and resist propaganda. Your most important critical thinking skill is your skill at making judgments─not snap judgments that occur in the blink of an eye, but those that require careful reasoning.

Philosophy of Computer Science

In this book, we will look at some of the central issues in the philosophy of computer science. The book is not designed to answer all (or even any) of the philosophical questions that can be raised about the nature of computers and computer science. Rather, it is designed to “bring you up to speed” on a conversation about these issues— to give you some of the background knowledge about them—so that you can read the literature for yourself and perhaps become part of the conversation by contributing your own views.
