The Practice of Prolog (Logic Programming)
The Practice of Prolog (Logic Programming)
The raison d'etre of this book is to encourage programmers to use Prolog in their day-to-day work. Personally, I find the language exciting to use, and wish to share the excitement with others. More pragmatically, I have seen how certain moderately-sized pieces of software are far easier to write in Prolog than in any other...
The Design and Analysis of Efficient Learning Algorithms (ACM Doctoral Dissertation Award)
The Design and Analysis of Efficient Learning Algorithms (ACM Doctoral Dissertation Award)

Approaches to building machines that can learn from experience abound - from connectionist learning algorithms and genetic algorithms to statistical mechanics and a learning system based on Piaget's theories of early childhood development. This monograph describes results derived from the mathematically oriented framework of computational...

Types and Programming Languages
Types and Programming Languages

A type system is a syntactic method for automatically checking the absence of certain erroneous behaviors by classifying program phrases according to the kinds of values they compute. The study of type systems--and of programming languages from a type-theoretic perspective--has important applications in software engineering, language design,...

Famous First Bubbles: The Fundamentals of Early Manias
Famous First Bubbles: The Fundamentals of Early Manias
The jargon of economics and finance contains numerous colorful terms for market-asset prices at odds with any reasonable economic explanation. Examples include "bubble," "tulipmania," "chain letter," "Ponzi scheme," "panic," "crash," "herding," and "irrational...
Improvisational Design: Continuous, Responsive Digital Communication
Improvisational Design: Continuous, Responsive Digital Communication
"This original and sound book should have a profound effect on design for digital media."
-- Mark D. Gross, Design Machine Group, Department of Architecture, University of Washington

Traditional visual design expresses information in fixed forms, such as print or film, so the message can be stored or

The Evolution of Central Banks
The Evolution of Central Banks

The Evolution of Central Banks employs a wide range of historical evidence and reassesses current monetary analysis to argue that the development of non-profit-maximizing and noncompetitive central banks to supervise and regulate the commercial banking system fulfils a necessary and natural function. Goodhart surveys the case for free...

Introduction to Statistical Relational Learning (Adaptive Computation and Machine Learning)
Introduction to Statistical Relational Learning (Adaptive Computation and Machine Learning)
Handling inherent uncertainty and exploiting compositional structure are fundamental to understanding and designing large-scale systems. Statistical relational learning builds on ideas from probability theory and statistics to address uncertainty while incorporating tools from logic, databases, and programming languages to represent structure. In...
Visual Insights: A Practical Guide to Making Sense of Data (The MIT Press)
Visual Insights: A Practical Guide to Making Sense of Data (The MIT Press)

A guide to the basics of information visualization that teaches nonprogrammers how to use advanced data mining and visualization techniques to design insightful visualizations.

In the age of Big Data, the tools of information visualization offer us a macroscope to help us make sense of the avalanche of data...

Computability and Complexity: From a Programming Perspective (Foundations of Computing)
Computability and Complexity: From a Programming Perspective (Foundations of Computing)
Computability and complexity theory should be of central concern to practitioners as well as theorists. Unfortunately, however, the field is known for its impenetrability. Neil Jones's goal as an educator and author is to build a bridge between computability and complexity theory and other areas of computer science, especially programming. In a...
3D Model Recognition from Stereoscopic Cues (Artificial Intelligence Series)
3D Model Recognition from Stereoscopic Cues (Artificial Intelligence Series)
3D Model Recognition from Stereoscopic Cues provides a rich, integrated account of work done within a large-scale, multisite, Alvey-funded collaborative project in computer vision. It presents a variety of methods for deriving surface descriptions from stereoscopic data and for matching those descriptions to three-dimensional models...
Conceptual Spaces: The Geometry of Thought
Conceptual Spaces: The Geometry of Thought
"This is a fearless book that casts a wide net around key issues in cognitive science. It offers the kind of coherent, unified view that the field badly needs." - Steven Sloman, Associate Professor, Cognitive and Linguistic Sciences, Brown University"

Within cognitive science, two approaches currently dominate
