Recommendation systems are among the most profitable artificial intelligence solutions you can deploy, for the simple fact that they can understand what people want amid a seemingly endless number of options. Anytime you buy-or browse-online, there are probably recommendation systems at work presenting you with options at each step. In this course, Miguel Gonz├ílez-Fierro teaches some of the techniques used for building, deploying, and testing recommenders. He offers practical, real-world examples to show how you can make a direct impact with recommendation systems, whether you’re a data scientist, machine learning engineer, data engineer, software engineer, or data analyst. Join Miguel in this course to get started building your first recommender and see how high it can boost your metrics.

Transforming Our Critical Systems


Free Download Transforming Our Critical Systems: How Can We Achieve the Systemic Change the World Needs?
English | 2024 | ISBN: 1009475657 | 100 Pages | PDF (True) | 3.3 MB
We have entered an era of perverse economic growth, at the expense of social and natural capital. As the world runs further behind on the Sustainable Development Goals, managing and mitigating the looming environmental and social crises in an increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world will be one of the biggest challenges, but also biggest commercial opportunities of our time. Building on earlier research on systemic change, using the WHAT-HOW-WHY framework, this Element presents actionable insights for the radical systemic reinvention of our ‘critical systems’ that satisfy human and societal needs, such as nutrition, mobility, infrastructure or health. The authors highlight ten emerging paradigms for future-fit systemic change, discuss how stakeholder mindsets can be developed, and present new skills for leaders and a pathway for companies to become drivers of collaborative transformation.

Systems, Self-Organisation and Information An Interdisciplinary Perspective


Free Download Systems, Self-Organisation and Information: An Interdisciplinary Perspective By Pereira Junior Alfredo; William A. Pickering; Ricardo Ribeiro Gudwin
2018 | 248 Pages | ISBN: 1138609927 | PDF | 16 MB
Complex system studies are a growing area of central importance to a wide range of disciplines, ranging from physics to politics and beyond. Adopting this interdisciplinary approach, Systems, Self-Organisation and Informationpresents and discusses a range of ground-breaking research in complex systems theory.Building upon foundational concepts, the volume introduces a theory of Self-Organization, providing definitions of concepts including system, structure, organization, functionality, and boundary. Biophysical and cognitive approaches to Self-Organization are also covered, discussing the complex dynamics of living beings and the brain, and self-organized adaptation and learning in computational systems. The convergence of Peircean philosophy with the study of Self-Organization also provides an original pathway of research, which contributes to a dialogue between pragmatism, semeiotics, complexity theory, and self-organizing systems.As one of the few interdisciplinary works on systems theory, relating Self-Organization and Information Theory, Systems, Self-Organisation and Informationis an invaluable resource for researchers and postgraduate students interested in complex systems theory from related disciplines including philosophy, physics, and engineering.

Stochastic Approximation A Dynamical Systems Viewpoint


Free Download Stochastic Approximation: A Dynamical Systems Viewpoint by Vivek S. Borkar
English | PDF EPUB (True) | 2024 | 280 Pages | ISBN : 9819982766 | 28.7 MB
This book serves as an advanced text for a graduate course on stochastic algorithms for the students of probability and statistics, engineering, economics and machine learning. This second edition gives a comprehensive treatment of stochastic approximation algorithms based on the ordinary differential equation (ODE) approach which analyses the algorithm in terms of a limiting ODE. It has a streamlined treatment of the classical convergence analysis and includes several recent developments such as concentration bounds, avoidance of traps, stability tests, distributed and asynchronous schemes, multiple time scales, general noise models, etc., and a category-wise exposition of many important applications. It is also a useful reference for researchers and practitioners in the field.

Model-Based Reliability Systems Engineering


Free Download Model-Based Reliability Systems Engineering by Yi Ren , Cheng Qian , Dezhen Yang , Qiang Feng , Bo Sun , Zili Wang
English | PDF EPUB (True) | 2024 | 345 Pages | ISBN : 9819902746 | 63.8 MB
This book introduces a new Model-Based Reliability System Engineering (MBRSE) methodology, including its concept connotation, basic theory and technologies, framework of integrated platform and engineering application cases. Different from traditional Reliability System Engineering (RSE) methods that mainly rely on the management of documents, MBRSE is model centric method, with which the design for hexability (including "reliability, maintainability, testability, supportability, environmental adaptability and safety") is performed by the revolution of united models in complete R&D fields and the process of closed- loop failure mitigation. This method can integrate all techniques and approaches of reliability engineering into the main process of R&D, and therefore is considered as a generalized hexability design and analysis tool. Furthermore, the future perspectives in the development of MBRSE are also presented through the combination of Digital Twin technology.

Control Design for Haptic Systems


Free Download Control Design for Haptic Systems: Enhancing the Stability and Rendering Performance
English | 2024 | ISBN: 9819985978 | 245 Pages | PDF EPUB (True) | 44 MB
This book aims at the upper-class undergraduate and the graduate students, and practicing engineers in the disciplines of mechanical, electrical, and computer engineering, with background knowledge of control. This book, first, explains the components of the haptic systems that are gaining popularity in the virtual reality simulations, the metaverse applications, as well as the remotely operated robotic systems. Next, the book introduces the previous and current widely-adopted methods for modeling and control of the haptic systems. The important metrics of performance such as stability and transparency of the haptic systems are explained and analyzed. Shortcomings of the current methods are discussed using these metrics. The book, then, explains the theories on the input-to-state stability (ISS), and shows how to formulate the control of haptic systems into the ISS framework. Step by step process of control design using the formulation is detailed, and better results are shown with experiment examples. The book develops further the presented approach to secure improved performance under selected issues. For example, better transparency of the haptic rendering, and handling of constant or time-varying time delay present in the haptic control systems.
