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 401 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
Modified branching programs and their computational power by Christoph Meinel( Book )
19 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in 3 languages and held by 396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Branching Programs are, besides Boolean circuits, the most important nonuniform model of computation. This volume gives a survey of the latest research in this field. It presents a branching program-based approach to complexity theory. Starting with a definition of branching programs and a review of the former research, nondeterministic branching programs are introduced and investigated, thus allowing the description of some fundamental complexity classes. The book then concentrates on the new concept of Omega-branching programs. Apart from the usual binary tests they contain features for evaluating certain elementary Boolean functions and are suited for characterizing space-bounded complexity classes. By means of these characterizations the author demonstrates the separation of some restricted complexity classes. In the appendix a number of extremely restricted graph-accessibility problems are given, which are, due to the branching program descriptions in chapters 1-3, p-projection complete in the classes under consideration."--Publisher's website
Design thinking research measuring performance in context by Hasso Plattner( )
5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 329 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( )
9 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 286 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

Design thinking research : building innovators by Hasso Plattner( )
4 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Design thinking as a user-centric innovation method has become more and more widespread during the past years. An increasing number of people and institutions have experienced its innovative power. While at the same time the demand has grown for a deep, evidence-based understanding of the way design thinking functions. This challenge is addressed by the Design Thinking Research Program between Stanford University, Palo Alto, USA, and Hasso Plattner Institute, Potsdam, Germany. Summarizing the outcomes of the 5th program year, this book imparts the scientific findings gained by the researchers through their investigations, experiments, and studies. The method of design thinking works when applied with diligence and insight. With this book and the underlying research projects, we aim to understand the innovation process of design thinking and the people behind it. The contributions ultimately center on the issue of building innovators. The focus of the investigation is on what people are doing and thinking when engaged in creative design innovation and how their innovation work can be supported. Therefore, within three topic areas, various frameworks, methodologies, mindsets, systems and tools are explored and further developed. The book begins with an assessment of crucial factors for innovators such as empathy and creativity, the second part addresses the improvement of team collaboration and finally we turn to specific tools and approaches which ensure information transfer during the design process. All in all, the contributions shed light and show deeper insights how to support the work of design teams in order to systematically and successfully develop innovations and design progressive solutions for tomorrow
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 164 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

Sicherheit und Vertrauen im Internet Eine technische Perspektive by Christoph Meinel( )
2 editions published in 2014 in German and held by 27 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 17 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
