Machine learning methods extract value from vast data
sets quickly and with modest resources. They are
established tools in a wide range of industrial
applications, including search engines, DNA sequencing,
stock market analysis, and robot locomotion, and their
use is spreading rapidly. People who know the methods
have their choice of rewarding jobs. This hands-on text
opens these opportunities to computer science students
with modest mathematical backgrounds.

how we come to define what human beings are and what
activities human beings can, and should, sustain. A

In the last few decades, as new reproductive technologies
have been developed, couples desiring children have
increasingly turned to various medical interventions when
natural conception has been unsuccessful. These new
technologies have raised ethical concerns from various
quarters, including medical ethics committees, the
American Fertility Society, and the Roman Catholic
Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. In this
informative overview of the ethical implications of
reproductive technologies, philosopher Richard T. Hull
offers a cross-section of the thinking of individuals
specializing in the ethical and legal problems involved
in this new area of medicine.

This timely collection addresses central issues in
organizational communication theory on the nature of
organizing and organization. The unique strength of this
volume is its contribution to the conception of
materiality, agency, and discourse in current theorizing
and research on the constitution of organizations. It
addresses such questions as: To what extent should the
materiality of texts and artifacts be accounted for in a
process view of organization? What part does materiality
play in the process by which organizations achieve
continuity in time and space? In what sense do artifacts
perform a role in human communication and interaction and
in the constitution of organization? What are the voices
and entities participating in the emergence and
stabilization of organizational reality?

In Headcount, the demographer sets the record straight on

modern India. In his inimitable engaging style, Bose, who
was born in 1930, paints a vivid portrait of a life well-
lived from his childhood in Kolhapur, then a princely
state, to his encounters with three generations of the
Nehru-Gandhi family and his recollections of the darkest
days of Indian democracy: the Emergency. Filled with
little known facts and insights into the people and
events that have shaped independent India, this is a
deeply compassionate and readable memoir by one of the
most important social scientists of modern.

In "The Contested Countryside", the authors put

problems in a clearer light - and perhaps even find some
solutions.” The Contested Countryside" examines the
historical background to some of the main controversies
of contemporary rural life. The authors explore key
elements of rural life, including the varying responses
to animal disease from Biblical times to the 2001
outbreak of foot-and-mouth, the relationship between
farming methods and landscape preservation as well as
organic farming, the role of the European Union and the
truth about the Countryside Alliance.

This volume is an attempt to understand the development
of democratic polity in India. It covers a wide range of
issues- theoretical concepts, political institutions,
federalism, electoral process, individual and group
rights and mass media - drawing attention to the
significant broadening of Indian democracy. But the
benefits of political democracy are yet to reach the
masses - political institutions are dominated by the
elite, civil society has been politicized and the
interventionist state has become an arm of the elite. The
solution to these problems lies in further
democratization of the political process.

In this Very Short Introduction, Donald Winch explains
and clarifies Malthus-s thought, assessing the profound
influence he has had on modern economics. Concentrating
on his writings, Winch sheds light on the context in
which he wrote and why his work has remained
controversial. Looking at Malthus-s early life as well as
the evolution of his theories from population to
political economy, Winch considers why and how Malthus-s
writings have been so influential in the thought of later
figures such as Charles Darwin and John Maynard Keynes.

As the crash of 1929 plunged the world economy into
turmoil, two men emerged with competing claims on how to
restore balance. John Maynard Keynes, the mercurial
Cambridge economist, believed that government had a duty
to spend. He met his opposite in a little-known Austrian
economics professor, Friedrich Hayek, who considered
attempts to intervene pointless and potentially
dangerous. From their first face-to-face encounter to the
heated arguments between their ardent disciples, Nicholas
Wapshott unearths the contemporary relevance of Keynes
and Hayek, as present-day arguments over the virtues of
the free market and government intervention rage with the
same ferocity as they did in the 1930s -.

This book presents a risk management framework to
understand conformity and deviance within investment
banks and other large organizations. It suggests that
some groups understand the dynamics of this conformity to
their advantage. This requires a deeper understanding of
the risk in risk management. Fraudsters can game the
system to their advantage legally and illegally,
therefore risk managers must understand the interplay of
multiple logics in order to govern and manage risk.

This book presents a critical challenge to the
contemporary development paradigm of good governance.
Based on original ethnographic fieldwork on urban water
governance reforms in south India (Karnataka), the book
examines the two propositions that underlie the current
good governance debate. The first refers to a claim that
good governance is both democratic and pro-market. The
second to the claim that commercially-oriented water
services, whether private or public, are good for poor
and marginalised citizens. The book analyses these
propositions as they intersect on three levels: policy,
practice (process) and outcome.

As an instrument which addresses the circumstances which

the development of international and national law. Using
national case studies from South Asia, Southern Africa,
Australia, Canada and Northern Europe, Women-s Human
Rights examines the potential and actual added value of
the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of
Discrimination against Women in comparison and
interaction with other equality and anti-discrimination
mechanisms. The studies demonstrate how state and non-

Numerous case studies throughout the book show both that
theoretical linguistics can be used to solve problems
where traditional approaches to historical linguistics
have failed to produce satisfying results, and that the
results of historical research can have an impact on
theory. The book first explains the nature of human
language and the sources of language change in broad
terms. It then focuses on different types of language
change from contemporary viewpoints, before exploring
comparative reconstruction - the most spectacular success
of traditional historical linguistics -and the problems
inherent in trying to devise new methods for linguistic

The Hermit’s Hut offers an original insight into the
profound relationship between architecture and
asceticism. Although architecture continually responds to
ascetic compulsions, as in its frequent encounter with
the question of excess and less, it is typically
considered separate from asceticism. In contrast, this
innovative book explores the rich and mutual ways in
which asceticism and architecture are played out in each
other’s practices. The question of asceticism is also
considered as neither a religious discourse nor a
specific cultural tradition but as a perennial issue in
the practice of culture.

Mystified by locating and positioning technologies? Need
to get the best from your location system? This guide is
invaluable for understanding how the positions and
movements of objects can be measured and used for real-
world applications. From it, you-ll learn how to optimise
and manage system performance by working with parameters
such as velocity, orientation, time, proximity and
direction, and consider not only accuracy, but also
reliability, integrity, response time and uncertainty.
Packed with practical examples, this concise book gives
you an overview of terrestrial radiolocation techniques,
including comparative system architectures and real-world
performance and limitations. It describes inertial
navigation principles and techniques, including low-cost
MEMS sensors for consumer products.
