E-librarian service user-friendly semantic search in digital libraries by Serge Linckels ( )
8 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book introduces a new approach to designing E-Librarian Services. With the help of this system, users will be able to retrieve multimedia resources from digital libraries more efficiently than they would by browsing through an index or by using a simple keyword search. E-Librarian Services combine recent advances in multimedia information retrieval with aspects of human-machine interfaces, such as the ability to ask questions in natural language; they simulate a human librarian by finding and delivering the most relevant documents that offer users potential answers to their queries. The premise is that more pertinent results can be retrieved if the search engine understands the meaning of the query; the returned results are therefore logical consequences of an inference rather than of keyword matches. Moreover, E-Librarian Services always provide users with a solution, even in situations where they are unable to offer a comprehensive answer
Design thinking research studying co-creation in practice by Hasso Plattner ( )
5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Annotation This book summarizes the results of the second year in the Design Thinking Research Program, a joint venture of Stanford University in Palo Alto and Hasso Plattner Institute in Potsdam. The authors have taken a closer look at the issue of co-creation from different points-of-view. The concept of co-creation can also be applied to the phase in which new ideas and related thought start to influence companies, the economy, our culture, and society. The perpetual pursuit for inventions, new creations and innovations is inherent in human nature. The concept behind co-creation may sound simple, however, it is both an essential element of Design Thinking and highly complex. It is about creating positive synergies for all parties involved

Design thinking research building innovation eco-systems by Larry Leifer ( )
8 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book summarizes the results of Design Thinking Research carried out at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California, USA, and Hasso Plattner Institute in Potsdam, Germany. The authors offer readers a closer look at Design Thinking with its processes of innovations and methods. The contents of the articles range from how to design ideas, methods, and technologies via creativity experiments and wicked problem solutions, to creative collaboration in the real world and the connectivity of designers and engineers. But the topics go beyond this in their detailed exploration of design thinking and its use in IT systems engineering fields and even from a management perspective. The authors show how these methods and strategies work in companies, introduce new technologies and their functions and demonstrate how Design Thinking can influence as diverse a topic area as marriage. Furthermore, we see how special design thinking use functions in solving wicked problems in complex fields. Thinking and creating innovations are basically and inherently human - so is Design Thinking. Due to this, Design Thinking is not only a factual matter or a result of special courses nor of being gifted or trained: it's a way of dealing with our environment and improving techniques, technologies and life

Algorithms and data structures in VLSI design : OBDD-foundations and applications by Christoph Meinel ( Book )
4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
One of the main problems in chip design is the huge number of possible combinations of individual chip elements, leading to a combinatorial explosion as chips become more complex. New key results in theoretical computer science and in the design of data structures and efficient algorithms can be applied fruitfully here. The application of ordered binary decision diagrams (OBDDs) has led to dramatic performance improvements in many computer-aided design projects. This textbook provides an introduction to the foundations of this interdisciplinary research area with an emphasis on applications in computer-aided circuit design and formal verification
Design thinking understand - improve - apply by Christoph Meinel ( Book )
6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Everybody loves an innovation, an idea that sells." But how do we arrive at such ideas that sell? And is it possible to learn how to become an innovator? Over the years Design Thinking - a program originally developed in the engineering department of Stanford University and offered by the two D-schools at the Hasso Plattner Institutes in Stanford and in Potsdam - has proved to be really successful in educating innovators. It blends an end-user focus with multidisciplinary collaboration and iterative improvement to produce innovative products, systems, and services. Design Thinking creates a vibrant interactive environment that promotes learning through rapid conceptual prototyping. In 2008, the HPI-Stanford Design Thinking Research Program was initiated, a venture that encourages multidisciplinary teams to investigate various phenomena of innovation in its technical, business, and human aspects. The researchers are guided by two general questions: 1. What are people really thinking and doing when they are engaged in creative design innovation? How can new frameworks, tools, systems, and methods augment, capture, and reuse successful practices? 2. What is the impact on technology, business, and human performance when design thinking is practiced? How do the tools, systems, and methods really work to get the innovation you want when you want it? How do they fail? In this book, the researchers take a system's view that begins with a demand for deep, evidence-based understanding of design thinking phenomena. They continue with an exploration of tools which can help improve the adaptive expertise needed for design thinking. The final part of the book concerns design thinking in information technology and its relevance for business process modeling and agile software development, i.e. real world creation and deployment of products, services, and enterprise systems. --- Book Description

This book is supposed to serve as a comprehensive and instructive guide through the new world of digital communication. On the physical layer optical and electrical cabling technology are described as well as wireless communication technologies. On the data link layer local area networks (LANs) are introduced together with the most popular LAN technologies such as Ethernet, Token Ring, FDDI, and ATM as well as wireless LAN technologies including IEEE 802.x, Bluetooth, or ZigBee. A wide range of WAN technologies are covered including contemporary high speed technologies like PDH and SDH up to high speed wireless WANs (WiMAX) and 4th generation wireless telephone networks LTE. Routing technologies conclude the treatment of the data link layer. Next, there is the Internet layer with the Internet protocol IP that establishes a virtual uniform network out of the net of heterogeneous networks. In detail, both versions, IPv4 as well as the successor IPv6 are covered in detail as well as ICMP, NDP, and Mobile IP. In the subsequent transport layer protocol functions are provided to offer a connection-oriented and reliable transport service on the basis of the simple and unreliable IP. The basic protocols TCP and UDP are introduced as well as NAT, the network address translation. Beside transport layer security protocols like SSL and TLS are presented. On the upmost application layer popular Internet application protocols are described like DNS, SMTP, PGP, (S)FTP, NFS, SSH, DHCP, SNMP, RTP, RTCP, RTSP, and World Wide Web
Sicherheit und Vertrauen im Internet Eine technische Perspektive by Christoph Meinel ( )
2 editions published in 2014 in German and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Das globale Internet ist ein offenes Netz, das heißt nicht begrenzt und für jedermann zugänglich. Allerdings hat diese Offenheit ihren Preis: Es gibt keine zentrale Kontrolle, die z.B. Unbefugten Einblick in die Kommunikation und damit in die Privatsphäre anderer Internetnutzer verwehren würde. Um dennoch einen ausreichenden Schutz der Vertraulichkeit und Privatsphäre zu gewährleisten, müssen in eigener Verantwortung Techniken und Tools aus der Kryptografie eingesetzt werden, die Nachrichten verschlüsseln oder deren Unversehrtheit sicherstellen helfen. Die Autoren zeigen unterschiedliche Wege auf, wie der Schutz der Privatsphäre im Internet wiederhergestellt werden kann. Der Inhalt Sicherheitsziele und Bedrohungen im Internet Grundbegriffe der Kryptografie Vertraulichkeit und Verschlüsselung Authentifikation und Digitale Signaturen Public-Key-Infrastrukturen und Zertifikate Glossar sicherheitstechnischer Begriffe Die Zielgruppen Dozierende und Studierende der Informatik Informatiker, IT-Beauftragte sowie alle Internetnutzer, die sich für Sicherheitsfragen interessieren Die Autoren Prof. Dr. Christoph Meinel ist Direktor und Geschäftsführer des Hasso-Plattner-Instituts für Softwaresystemtechnik GmbH (HPI) sowie Inhaber des Lehrstuhls für Internet-Technologien und -Systeme an der Universität Potsdam.

Patterns of change linguistic innovations in the development of classical mathematics by Ladislav Kvasz ( )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book offers a reconstruction of linguistic innovations in the history of mathematics; innovations which changed the ways in which mathematics was clone, understood and philosophically interpreted. It argues that there are at least three ways in which the language of mathematics has been changed throughout its history, thus determining the lines of development that mathematics has followed." "The book offers tools of analysis by means of which scholars and students of the history and philosophy of mathematics can attain better understanding of the various changes, which the subject of their study underwent in the course of history. The book brings also important insights for mathematics education connecting growth of language with the development of mathematical thought."--Jacket
