With new legislation on data protection in the EU now in place, our greatest challenge moving into 2020 is to ensure that this legislation produces the promised results. This includes ensuring that new rules on ePrivacy remain firmly on the EU agenda. Awareness of the issues surrounding data protection and privacy and the importance of rotecting these fundamental rights is at an all time high and we cannot allow this momentum to decline.
General Principles and Practice
Statistics is the foundation of intelligent data analysis. Statistics Fundamentals Succinctly by Katie Kormanik provides the foundational bricks and mortar needed to master the theories and methodologies behind statistical procedures. In less than 100 pages, you’ll understand how to better gather and interpret all the information at your fingertips.
It presents artificial intelligence as the study of the design of intelligent computational agents. The book is structured as a textbook, but it is accessible to a wide audience of professionals and researchers. In the last decades we have witnessed the emergence of artificial intelligence as a serious science and engineering discipline. This book provides an accessible synthesis of the field aimed at undergraduate and graduate students. It provides a coherent vision of the foundations of the field as it is today. It aims to provide that synthesis as an integrated science, in terms of a multi-dimensional design space that has been partially explored. As with any science worth its salt, artificial intelligence has a coherent, formal theory and a rambunctious experimental wing. The book balances theory and experiment, showing how to link them intimately together. It develops the science of AI together with its engineering applications.
In a company, when the business process is defined, employees feel confident in their roles. They understand expectations and can easily identify when something is amiss or requires escalation. In Business Process Flow Mapping Succinctly, Erica Quigley will show you the activities that should occur in order to completely define a business process so you can identify and rectify gaps in communication, procedures, and teams. You will also learn a simple way to document the process so the project team working with you can feel confident in what they are being asked to execute.
Containers have revolutionized software development, allowing developers to bundle their applications with everything they need, from the operating system up, into a single package. Docker is one of the most popular platforms for containers, allowing them to be hosted on-premises or on the cloud, and to run on Linux, Windows, and Mac machines. With Docker Succinctly by Elton Stoneman, learn the basics of building Docker images, sharing them on the Docker Hub, orchestrating containers to deliver large applications, and much more.
