Application of Nature Based Algorithm in Natural Resource Management


Application of Nature Based Algorithm in Natural Resource Management by Mrinmoy Majumder, Rabindra Nath Barman
English | PDF | 2013 | 347 Pages | ISBN : 9400751516 | 4.7 MB
The book describes the utility and efficiency of nature based algorithms in optimization, classification and simulation of natural resource management problems.The book deals with climate change, hydrology, renewable energy and natural ecosystems and tries to find solution to its common uncertainties so that proper mitigation steps can be undertaken to reduce both quantity and probability of such anomalies. The book aims to propose some methodologies which can help related engineers and planners to mitigate the common abnormalities that exist to derail the equilibrium of a natural ecosystem and its biotic as well as abiotic components.

The Doctor and the Algorithm Promise, Peril, and the Future of Health AI (True PDF, EPUB)


English | 2022 | ISBN: 0197644465 | 273 pages | True PDF EPUB | 13.25 MB
For years, technologists and computer scientists have promised an AI revolution that would transform the very basis of how we imagine and administer modern medicine. AI-driven advancements in medical error rates, diagnostic accuracy, or disease outbreak detection could potentially save thousands of lives. But health AI also carries the potential for exacerbating deep systemic biases if left unchecked.
The Doctor and the Algorithm combines insights from science and technology studies, critical algorithm studies, and public interest informatics to better understand the promise and peril of health AI. The book draws on case studies in automated diagnostics, algorithmic pain measurement, AI-driven drug discovery, and death prediction to investigate how health AI is made, promoted, and justified. It explores the enthusiastic promises of health AI marketing communication and medical futurism while also analyzing the inequitable outcomes new AI technology often creates for already marginalized communities. Finally, the book closes with specific recommendations for regulatory frameworks that might support more ethical and equitable approaches to health AI in the future.

Your Boss Is an Algorithm Artificial Intelligence, Platform Work and Labour


English | 2022 | ISBN: 1509953183 | 199 pages | True PDF EPUB | 13.65 MB
What effect do robots, algorithms, and online platforms have on the world of work? Using case studies and examples from across the EU, the UK, and the US, this book provides a compass to navigate this technological transformation as well as the regulatory options available, and proposes a new map for the era of radical digital advancements.
From platform work to the gig-economy and the impact of artificial intelligence, algorithmic management, and digital surveillance on workplaces, technology has overwhelming consequences for everyone’s lives, reshaping the labour market and straining social institutions. Contrary to preliminary analyses forecasting the threat of human work obsolescence, the book demonstrates that digital tools are more likely to replace managerial roles and intensify organisational processes in workplaces, rather than opening the way for mass job displacement.

Butterfly Optimization Algorithm Theory and Engineering Applications


Butterfly Optimization Algorithm: Theory and Engineering Applications
English | 2022 | ISBN: 9811937664 | 122 Pages | PDF EPUB (True) | 7 MB
This book presents theory and applications of recently introduced butterfly optimization algorithm (BOA). It also highlights hybridization process in the basic structure of BOA with in-depth analysis of complexity. This book also describes the constraint handling process. The newly introduced variant is implemented and validated on a set of linear and nonlinear real works problems of engineering and pulp and paper industry. The simulated results are compared with most of the basic algorithms. Comparative and nonparametric statistical result analysis illustrates the efficacy of the algorithm.
