Analysis and Design of Delayed Genetic Regulatory Networks

Description This book offers an essential introduction to the latest advances in delayed genetic regulatory networks (GRNs) and presents cutting-edge work on the analysis and design of delayed GRNs in which the system parameters are subject to uncertain, stochastic and/or parameter-varying changes. Specifically, the types examined include delayed switching GRNs, delayed stochastic GRNs, delayed reaction–diffusion GRNs, delayed discrete-time GRNs, etc. In addition, the solvability of stability analysis, control and estimation problems involving delayed GRNs are addressed in terms of linear matrix inequality or M-matrix tests. The book offers a comprehensive reference guide for researchers and practitioners working in system sciences and applied mathematics, and a...

Computational Techniques for Human Smile Analysis

Description In this book, the authors discuss the recent developments in computational techniques for automated non-invasive facial emotion detection and analysis with particular focus on the smile. By way of applications, they discuss how genuine and non-genuine smiles can be inferred, how gender is encoded in a smile and how it is possible to use the dynamics of a smile itself as a biometric feature. It is often said that the face is a window to the soul. Bearing a metaphor of this nature in mind, one might find it intriguing to understand, if any, how the physical, behavioural as well as emotional characteristics of...

Handbook of Deep Learning Applications

Description This book presents a broad range of deep-learning applications related to vision, natural language processing, gene expression, arbitrary object recognition, driverless cars, semantic image segmentation, deep visual residual abstraction, brain–computer interfaces, big data processing, hierarchical deep learning networks as game-playing artefacts using regret matching, and building GPU-accelerated deep learning frameworks. Deep learning, an advanced level of machine learning technique that combines class of learning algorithms with the use of many layers of nonlinear units, has gained considerable attention in recent times. Unlike other books on the market, this volume addresses the challenges of deep learning implementation, computation time, and the complexity of reasoning and...

People, Personal Data and the Built Environment

Description Personal data is increasingly important in our lives. We use personal data to quantify our behaviour, through health apps or for ‘personal branding’ and we are also increasingly forced to part with our data to access services. With the proliferation of embedded sensors, the built environment is playing a key role in this developing use of data, even though this remains relatively hidden. Buildings are sites for the capture of personal data. This data is used to adapt buildings to people’s behaviour, and increasingly, organisations use this data to understand how buildings are occupied and how communities develop within them. A whole host of...

Mathematics for Algorithm and Systems Analysis

Description Discrete mathematics is fundamental to computer science, and interesting, challenging problems in discrete mathematics arise in programming languages, computer architecture, networking, distributed systems, database systems, artificial intelligence, theoretical computer science, and elsewhere. This up-to-date text prepares undergraduates with four units of study: counting and listing, functions, decision trees and recursion, and basic concepts of graph theory. Each unit is divided into four sections, and each section contains a selection of problems that vary in difficulty. Solutions to these problems are given at the end of the text. Multiple-choice questions for review appear at the end of each unit. The text offers students the mathematical...
