Modern of Information Retrieval By Ricardo Baeza-Yates & Berthier Ribeiro-Neto
eBook (PDF): $8.99
Information retrieval is a broad area of Computer Science focused primarily on providing the users with easy access to information of their interest, as follows. Information retrieval deals with the... More > representation, storage, organization of, and access to information items such as documents, Web pages, online catalogs, structured and semi-structured records, multimedia objects. The representation and organization of the information items should be such as to provide the users with easy access to information of their interest. In terms of scope, the area has grown well beyond its early goals of indexing text and searching for useful documents in a collection. Nowadays, research in IR includes modeling, Web search, text classification, systems architecture, user interfaces, data visualization, filtering, languages.< Less
Cross Language Information Retrieval By Mallamma V Reddy & M Hanumanthappa
Paperback: $22.50
Prints in 3-5 business days
Natural Language Processing (NLP) is the process of computer analysis of input provided in a human language (natural language), and conversion of this input into a useful form of representation. The... More > field of NLP is primarily concerned with getting computers to perform useful and interesting tasks with human languages. The field of NLP is secondarily concerned with helping us come to a better understanding of human language. The input/output of a NLP system can be 1) written text 2) speech. We will mostly concern with written text (not speech), to process written text, we need: lexical, syntactic, semantic knowledge about the language, discourse information, real world knowledge. To process spoken language, we need everything required to process written text, plus the challenges of speech recognition and speech synthesis. There are two components of NLP.< Less
Mathematics for Classical Information Retrieval: Roots and Applications By Dariush Alimohammadi
Paperback: $15.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
This book is about Information Retrieval (IR), particularly Classical Information Retrieval (CIR). It looks at these topics through their mathematical roots. The mathematical bases of CIR are briefly... More > reviewed, followed by the most important and interesting models of CIR, including Boolean, Vector Space, and Probabilistic. The primary goal of book is to create a context for understanding the principles of CIR by discussing its mathematical bases. This book can be helpful for LIS students who are studying IR but have no knowledge of mathematics. Weakness in math impairs the ability to understand current issues in IR. While LIS students are the main target of this book, it may be of interest to computer science and communications students as well.< Less
Collaborative and Social Information Retrieval and Access By Kristian Dybdal
eBook (PDF): $194.91
New and complex modes of interaction in today’s Web-based applications have resulted in ever increasing amounts of online information that is rich, dynamic, and interconnected. Although the... More > proliferation of the new media and a variety of collaborative frameworks is continuing to impact the way we communicate, shop, entertain ourselves, conduct business, or develop relationships; it also exacerbates the age-old problem of information overload. More than ever, intelligent Web applications must be able to decipher the true intent of a user, to adapt to the user’s changing preferences, to compare or connect that user to other users within a community or with similar interests, and to, finally, provide that user with pertinent and useful information.< Less
The Labrador Retriever: A Guide to Choosing the Labrador Retriever as a Pet for Your Kids By Nancy Dembeck, Malibu Publishing
eBook (ePub): $4.99

Many families with children think about getting pets, but may put the idea on the back burner trying to think about which type of pet would be safe and fun for children in play. One of the most... More > popular dogs for being good with kids is the Labrador Retriever. Once known as the "St John's Dogs," the Labrador Retriever is one of the most popular breeds in the United States. Originally from Newfoundland, Canada the Labrador was trained to jump overboard into the icy waters to haul fisherman's nets to shore. Specimens were brought to England in the 1800's by English ships coming from Labrador, where the dog's fine retrieving instincts were honed and developed. One of the best family dogs and canine companions because of their gentle, loving disposition, the highly trainable Labrador also excels in drug detection, as a guide for the blind, and service dog for the disabled. The breed is also an outstanding obedience and field trial competitor.< Less
Music Retrieval based on Melodic Similarity By Rainer Typke
Paperback: $11.66
Prints in 3-5 business days
This book describes a method for retrieving pieces of music that contain musical material which is melodically similar to a given query. The method uses a continuous dissimilarity measure and works... More > for symbolic representations of music such as MIDI files. The algorithmic complexity is logarithmic, and therefore the method scales well. The more data added to the searchable database, the smaller the increase in response time. This method produced the best results for the MIREX 2006 “Symbolic Melodic Similarity” retrieval competition. Other topics include a survey of music information retrieval systems and a description of how well vantage indexing works for music. Further, the book contains a chapter about evaluating music information retrieval systems and a measure, “average dynamic recall”, that is well suited to this task.< Less

Michael Mandberg wrote software that parses the entirety of the English-language Wikipedia database and programmatically lays out nearly 7500 volumes, complete with covers, and then uploads them to Lulu.com for print-on-demand. Print Wikipedia draws attention to the sheer size of the encyclopedia's content and the impossibility of rendering Wikipedia as a material object in fixed form: Once a volume is printed it is already out of date. It is also a work of found poetry built on what is likely the largest appropriation ever made. As we become increasingly more dependent on information and source material on the Internet today, Mandiberg explores the accessibility of its vastness.< Less
