Knowledge representation is a key area of modern AI, underlying the development of semantic networks. Description logics are languages that represent knowledge in a structured and formally well-understood way: they are the cornerstone of the Semantic Web. This is the first textbook describing this importan new topic and will be suitable for courses aimed at advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students, or for self-study. It assumes only a basic knowledge of computer science concepts. After generla introducitons motivating and overviewing the subject, the authors describe a simple DL and how it works and can be used, utilizing a running example that recurs through the book. Methods of reasoning and their implementation and complexity are examined, Finally, the authors provide a non-trivial DL knowledge base and use it to illsutrate featues that have been introduced: this base is available for free online access in a form usable by modern ontology editors.

From their shadowy origins in Bitcoin to their use by multinational corporations, cryptocurrencies and blockchains are remaking the rules of digital media and society. Meanwhile, regulators, governments, and the public are trying to make sense of it all. In this accessible book, Quinn DuPont guides readers through the changing face of money to show how blockchain technology underpins new forms of value exchange and social coordination. He introduces cryptocurrency and blockchain technology to readers in terms of their developers and users, investment opportunities and risks, changes to politics and law, social and industrial applications - and what this all means for the new economy. The author argues throughout that, rather than being a technical innovation, cryptocurrencies and blockchains are social technologies enabling developers and users to engage in unprecedented experiments with social and political levers. Cryptocurrencies and Blockchains dispenses with hype and offers sober reflection on this crucial and timely topic. It is essential reading for students and scholars of culture, politics, media, and the economy, as well as anyone who wants to understand, take part in, or change the future of work and society.

R642 R464 Discovery Miles 4 640 Save R178 (28%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Discover how blockchain will facilitate a new currency that will transcend space and time Largely inspired by The Denationalization of Money by Fredrich Hayek, Money Without Boundaries' ideological foundation is also inspired by economists and thought leaders like Milton Friedman and Irving Fisher, advancements in capital markets over the past 50 years, and the convergence of old and new technologies. Author Thomas J. Anderson explains how blockchain acts as the filter and the glue, making it all possible. Compared with other currencies, blockchain-managed money markets are more straightforward and transparent. It is easier to monitor, understand, and assess the quality of their "full-faith and credit." Money Without Boundaries shows how not only money, but also the process of borrowing and lending, will evolve to be conducted in a 100% trusted, secure, transparent, open architecture environment. Anderson begins with a history of money and discusses the rise of cryptocurrency, concluding with a comparison of decentralized money markets to all other alternatives. Money without Boundaries: - Demonstrates how blockchain technology allows full transparency - Explains how blockchain makes it possible for money to be fully commoditized - Explains how this fully market-based, decentralized, self-regulating system has vast implications throughout the global financial system - Shows how everyone will benefit when they have the opportunity to compete on "full faith in credit" If you are interested in cryptocurrency, money, monetary theory, or understanding how the applied uses of blockchain technology will change your everyday life, this is essential reading.

Those leaders will welcome this book as it guides them through the first steps in their journey towards a data-driven organisation. This book brings the topic of Data and its commercial usage to the attention of a broad range of business leaders. It encourages you to get engaged, by explaining in a non-technical way what data comprises, which opportunities wait to get discovered and, most importantly, how to prepare and launch the introduction of a Data Office in a company.
