    Business continuity and disaster recovery are hot topics in IT these days and with good reason. The problem is, 
    no one who actually works IN IT has time to deal with it. Enter this Workbook. This is a great book because it 
    provides the big picture and the details in a really readable style. It starts out discussing the environment surrounding IT and 
    the various kinds of disasters businesses face. Then, it takes the reader step-by-step through the process of planning for a 
    disaster and how to recover the business in the event of a disaster. This book is an ideal combination of the practice of 
    business continuity - standards, best practices, global perspective - and, the process of business continuity - planning, 
    development, implementation, and so forth. One feature you will especially like are the sections by specialists - the ready to 
    use templates on Business justification, Emergency responses, Salvage plans, and many more. Granted, many of us will never 
    get through all the planning steps in the book, but at least you have the checklists to help you through it. These lists also provide 
    a great reality check. The bottom line is this: protect the data you have today then create your more extensive disaster plan. 
    Along the way, be sure you maintain compliance with whatever regulations your company or industry is subject to. If you want the 
    checklists and details that will help you do these things, buy the book. It's the cheapest insurance you can buy.

  • It Began with Babbage by Subrata Dasgupta 
    ISBN: 0199309426
    Publication Date: 2013-01-01
    The book traces a path from Babbage's Difference Engine in the early 19th century to the end of the 1960s by when a new academic discipline named "computer science" had come into being. Along the way we meet characters like Babbage and Ada Lovelace, Turing and von Neumann, Shannon and Chomsky, and a host of other people from a variety of backgrounds who collectively created this new science of the artificial. And in the end, we see how and why computer science acquired a nature and history all of its own.

    This book takes a fresh look at this vital area for public policy and practice. Informed by over ten years of original research on the "inside" of projects to put local services on-line, the authors combine cross-disciplinary insights to provide a new social informatics perspective on digital government.Experiences in areas such as health and social care are used to illustrate the dangers of "over-integration" when key decisions are left to system designers, as they seek to integrate information in centralized systems. The authors argue for a new "architectural discourse" to change the way that systems are deployed, evolve, and are governed.

The study of these features leads to the development of evaluators, interpreters and compilers, and also type inference algorithms, for small languages.

    In this book, Annette Vee examines the coding-as-literacy analogy and argues that it can be an apt rhetorical frame. The theoretical tools of literacy help us understand programming beyond a technical level, and in its historical, social, and conceptual contexts. Viewing programming from the perspective of literacy and literacy from the perspective of programming, she argues, shifts our understandings of both. Computer programming becomes part of an array of communication skills important in everyday life, and literacy. Vee argues, a "computational mentality" is now emerging even though coding 
    is still a specialized skill.

    People all over the world are turning to R, an open source statistical language, to make sense of data.
    Inspired by the innovations of R users in science, education, and industry, RStudio develops free and open tools for R and enterprise-ready professional products for teams to scale and share work.
    Our goal is to empower users to be productive with R.
  • Programming with R 
    Our real goal isn’t to teach you R, but to teach you the basic concepts that all programming depends on. We use R in our lessons because:
    we have to use something for examples;
    it’s free, well-documented, and runs almost everywhere;
    it has a large (and growing) user base among scientists; and
    it has a large library of external packages available for performing diverse tasks.
    But the two most important things are to use whatever language your colleagues are using, so you can share your work with them easily, and to use that language well.

    "Why R? It's free, open source, powerful and highly extensible. "You have a lot of prepackaged stuff that's already available, so you're standing on the shoulders of giants," Google's chief economist told The New York Times back in 2009.
    Because it's a programmable environment that uses command-line scripting, you can store a series of complex data-analysis steps in R. That lets you re-use your analysis work on similar data more easily than if you were using a point-and-click interface, notes Hadley Wickham, author of several popular R packages and chief scientist with RStudio.

    The principle objective of this thesis is to expand the term “technological sublime” to include technologies of artificial intelligence. In defining new realms of the technological sublime, we must not only consider the ecological integration of technology within natural surroundings, but also appreciate modern technological objects that instigate sublime experiences. This work examines science fictional portrayals of interactions with sentient artificial intelligence in I, Robot, 2001: A Space Odyssey and other major works of science fiction. In each of these works, characters who encounter technologies possessing artificial intelligence share sublime experiences.

After discussing the characterizing properties of abstraction, a formal model, the model, is presented to capture them. This model makes the notion of abstraction easily applicable by means of the introduction of a set of abstraction operators and abstraction patterns, reusable across different domains and applications. It is the impact of abstraction in Artificial Intelligence, Complex Systems and Machine Learning which creates the core of the book.

Informed by over ten years of original research on the "inside" of projects to put local services on-line, the authors combine cross-disciplinary insights to provide a new social informatics perspective on digital government.Experiences in areas such as health and social care are used to illustrate the dangers of "over-integration" when key decisions are left to system designers, as they seek to integrate information in centralized systems. The authors argue for a new "architectural discourse" to change the way that systems are deployed, evolve, and are governed.

  • Digital Government at Work by Ian McLoughlin; Rob Wilson 
    ISBN: 0199557721
    Publication Date: 2013-08-24
    This book takes a fresh look at this vital area for public policy and practice. Informed by over ten years of original research on the "inside" of projects to put local services on-line, the authors combine cross-disciplinary insights to provide a new social informatics perspective on digital government.Experiences in areas such as health and social care are used to illustrate the dangers of "over-integration" when key decisions are left to system designers, as they seek to integrate information in centralized systems. The authors argue for a new "architectural discourse" to change the way that systems are deployed, evolve, and are governed.
