Download Deep Web: la rete oltre Google by Carola Frediani PDF

By Carola Frediani

"DEEP internet - los angeles rete oltre Google" scatta quattro fotografie di quello che è su net, ma vive al di sotto della superficie in cui l. a. maggior parte delle persone naviga. È un percorso emozionante e contraddittorio che ci mette di fronte a quello che viene normalmente rimosso nella rete controllata ed edulcorata dei social community, dei weblog, dei siti internet commerciali. Droga e furti telematici convivono assieme a libertà di pensiero, attivismo informatico, idee.
Carola Frediani ci connette con questo mondo nascosto, parlandoci dei suoi personaggi e delle sue storie. Ci racconta di Silk highway, una mecca della droga online, del suo smantellamento da parte dell'Fbi e delle verità grigie che si nascondono dietro alla cattura dei suoi gestori, tra omicidi e foto di ragazzi consistent with bene. Ci parla di nameless, delle manifestazioni e delle azioni di attivismo politico function solo nel mondo della rete, ma non in line with questo virtuali, anzi. E ancora di cybercriminalità, di clonazione di carte di credito, di accesso alle webcam dei laptop di chi viaggia su net senza conoscere i meccanismi che stanno dietro a questo mondo che identifica ormai los angeles nostra contemporaneità. È il mondo di Tor, di Cipolla, del Datagate, dei Bitcoin. In una parola: è un mondo in cui riversiamo quotidianamente i nostri dati e da cui li scarichiamo. Questo e-book parla della libertà che ci è concessa, della sicurezza che questi dati hanno e di altri modi possibili di vivere una rete diversa, non omologata, pericolosa e alternativa.

Download Computing Prosody: Computational Models for Processing by D. R. Ladd (auth.), Yoshinori Sagisaka, Nick Campbell, Norio PDF

By D. R. Ladd (auth.), Yoshinori Sagisaka, Nick Campbell, Norio Higuchi (eds.)

This e-book offers a set of papers from the Spring 1995 paintings­ store on Computational techniques to Processing the Prosody of Spon­ taneous Speech, hosted through the ATR reading Telecommunications Re­ seek Laboratories in Kyoto, Japan. The workshop introduced jointly lead­ ing researchers within the fields of speech and sign processing, electric en­ gineering, psychology, and linguistics, to debate facets of spontaneous speech prosody and to signify techniques to its computational research and modelling. The booklet is split into 4 sections. half I supplies an outline and theoretical history to the character of spontaneous speech, differentiating it from the lab-speech that has been the point of interest of such a lot of prior analyses. half II makes a speciality of the prosodic good points of discourse and the constitution of the spoken message, half ilIon the new release and modelling of prosody for computing device speech synthesis. half IV discusses how prosodic details can be utilized within the context of computerized speech popularity. every one component to the booklet begins with an invited evaluate paper to situate the chapters within the context of present learn. We consider that this selection of papers bargains attention-grabbing insights into the scope and nature of the issues considering the computational research and modelling of genuine spontaneous speech, and count on that those works won't simply shape the foundation of extra advancements in each one box but additionally merge to shape an built-in computational version of prosody for a greater figuring out of human processing of the advanced interactions of the speech chain.

By Christoph Niethammer, José Gracia, Andreas Knüpfer, Michael M. Resch, Wolfgang E. Nagel

Numerical simulation and modelling utilizing excessive functionality Computing has developed into a longtime strategy in educational and commercial examine. whilst, the excessive functionality Computing infrastructure is turning into ever extra advanced. for example, lots of the present most sensible platforms world wide use hundreds of thousands of nodes during which classical CPUs are mixed with accelerator playing cards in an effort to increase their compute energy and effort potency. This complexity can merely be mastered with sufficient improvement and optimization instruments. Key subject matters addressed via those instruments contain parallelization on heterogeneous structures, functionality optimization for CPUs and accelerators, debugging of more and more advanced medical functions and optimization of strength utilization within the spirit of eco-friendly IT. This booklet represents the lawsuits of the 8th overseas Parallel instruments Workshop, held October 1-2, 2014 in Stuttgart, Germany – that's a discussion board to debate the newest developments within the parallel tools.
