Author: Terry Winograd

Understanding Computers and Cognition presents an important and controversial new approach to understanding what computers do and how their functioning is related to human language, thought, and action. While it is a book about computers, Understanding Computers and Cognition goes beyond the specific issues of what computers can or can't do. It is a broad-ranging discussion exploring the background of understanding in which the discourse about computers and technology takes place. Understanding Computers and Cognition is written for a wide audience, not just those professionals involved in computer design or artificial intelligence. It represents an important contribution to the ongoing discussion about what it means to be a machine, and what it means to be human.

The Politics of Slums in the Global South

Author: Véronique Dupont
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781317557388
Release Date: 2015-08-27
Genre: Business & Economics

Seeing urban politics from the perspective of those who reside in slums offers an important dimension to the study of urbanism in the global South. Many people living in sub-standard conditions do not have their rights as urban citizens recognised and realise that they cannot rely on formal democratic channels or governance structures. Through in-depth case studies and comparative research, The Politics of Slums in the Global South: Urban Informality in Brazil, India, South Africa and Peru integrates conceptual discussions on urban political dynamics with empirical material from research undertaken in Rio de Janeiro, Delhi, Chennai, Cape Town, Durban and Lima. The chapters engage with the relevant literature and present empirical material on urban governance and cities in the South, housing policy for the urban poor, the politics of knowledge and social mobilisation. Recent theories on urban informality and subaltern urbanism are explored, and the issue of popular participation in public interventions is critically assessed. The book is aimed at a scholarly readership of postgraduate students and researchers in development studies, urban geography, political science, urban sociology and political geography. It is also of great value to urban decision-makers and practitioners.

Author: Arvind Sathi
Publisher: Springer
ISBN: 9781137594662
Release Date: 2016-09-24
Genre: Computers

This book explores cognitive behavior among Internet of Things. Using a series of current and futuristic examples – appliances, personal assistants, robots, driverless cars, customer care, engineering, monetization, and many more – the book covers use cases, technology and communication aspects of how machines will support individuals and organizations. This book examines the Cognitive Things covering a number of important questions: • What are Cognitive Things? • What applications can be driven from Cognitive Things – today and tomorrow? • How will these Cognitive Things collaborate with each and other, with individuals and with organizations? • What is the cognitive era? How is it different from the automation era? • How will the Cognitive Things support or accelerate human problem solving? • Which technical components make up cognitive behavior? • How does it redistribute the work-load between humans and machines? • What types of data can be collected from them and shared with external organizations? • How do they recognize and authenticate authorized users? How is the data safeguarded from potential theft? Who owns the data and how are the data ownership rights enforced? Overall, Sathi explores ways in which Cognitive Things bring value to individuals as well as organizations and how to integrate the use of the devices into changing organizational structures. Case studies are used throughout to illustrate how innovators are already benefiting from the initial explosion of devices and data. Business executives, operational managers, and IT professionals will understand the fundamental changes required to fully benefit from cognitive technologies and how to utilize them for their own success.
