              The recent rapid growth in the variety and complexity of new machine learning architectures requires the development of improved methods for designing, analyzing, evaluating, and communicating machine learning technologies. Statistical Machine Learning provides students, engineer...s, and scientists with tools from mathematical statistics and nonlinear optimization theory to become experts in the field of machine learning. In particular, the material in this text directly supports the mathematical analysis and design of old, new, and not-yet-invented nonlinear high-dimensional machine learning algorithms. Book Features: Unified empirical risk minimization framework supports rigorous mathematical analyses of widely used supervised, unsupervised, and reinforcement machine learning algorithms. Matrix calculus methods for supporting machine learning analysis and design applications. Explicit conditions for ensuring convergence of adaptive, batch, minibatch, MCEM, and MCMC learning algorithms that minimize both unimodal and multimodal objective functions. Explicit conditions for characterizing asymptotic properties of M-estimators and model selection criteria such as AIC and BIC in the presence of possible model misspecification. This advanced text is suitable for graduate students or highly motivated undergraduate students in statistics, computer science, electrical engineering, and applied mathematics. The text is self-contained and only assumes knowledge of lower-division linear algebra and upper-division probability theory. Students, professional engineers, and multidisciplinary scientists possessing these minimal prerequisites will find this text challenging yet accessible. About the Author: Richard M. Golden (Ph.D., M.S.E.E., B.S.E.E.) is Professor of Cognitive Science and Participating Faculty Member in Electrical Engineering at the University of Texas at Dallas. Dr. Golden has published articles and given talks at scientific conferences on a wide range of topics in

              The second edition of Data Protection goes beyond the traditional topics including deduplication, continuous availability, snapshots, replication, backup and recovery, and explores such additional considerations as legal, privacy, and ethical issues. A new model is presented for ...understanding and planning the various aspects of data protection, which is essential to developing holistic strategies. The second edition also addresses the Cloud and the growing adoption of software and function as a service, as well as effectively planning over the lifespan of a workload what the best mix of traditional, and cloud native data protection services might be. Virtualization continues to present new challenges to data protection, and the impact of containerization is examined. The book takes a holistic, business-based approach to data protection. It explains how data protection is a mix of proactive and reactive planning, technology and activities that allow for data continuity. There are three essential activities that refer to themselves as data protection; while they all overlap in terms of scope and function, each operate as reasonably self-contained fields with their own specialists and domain nomenclature. These three activities are: Data protection as a storage and recovery activity Data protection as a security activity Data protection as a privacy activity These activities are covered in detail, with a focus on how organizations can use them to leverage their IT investments and optimize costs. The book also explains how data protection is becoming an enabler for new processes around data movement and data processing. This book arms readers with information critical for making decisions on how data can be protected against loss in the cloud, on-premises, or in a mix of the two. It explains the changing face of recovery in a highly virtualized data center and techniques for dealing with big data. Moreover, it presents a model for where data recovery processes can be in

              Professionals are challenged each day by a changing landscape of technology and terminology. In recent history, especially the last 25 years there has been an explosion of terms and methods born that automate and improve decision-making and operations. One term called Analytics i...s an overarching description of a compilation of methodologies. But, AI (Artificial Intelligence), statistics, decision science, optimization which have been around for decades has resurged. Also, things like business intelligence, On-line Analytical Processing (OLAP) and many, many more have been born or reborn. How is someone to make sense of all this methodology, terminology? This book, the first in a series of three, provides a look at the foundations of artificial intelligence and analytics and why readers need an unbiased understanding of the subject. The authors include the basics such as algorithms, mental concepts, models, and paradigms in addition to the benefits of machine learning. The book also includes a chapter on data and the various forms of data. The authors wrap up this book with a look at next frontiers such as applications and designing your environment for success, which segue into the topics of the next two books in the series.

              No enterprise today is proud of being unchanged. Stability is understood more as a sign of stagnation than reliability, and enterprises that do not change and do not evolve are commonly regarded as fossilized. Increasing globalization processes often force today's enterprises to ...make organizational changes; but the effectiveness of these relies on its organizational culture. This book argues that the problem behind organizational culture is its multilevel structure, including the visible and hidden levels. It addresses difficult questions such as: Is it better to make thorough, but more painful changes, or to gradually introduce small improvements? It also demonstrates that organizational culture is not a fixed phenomenon. Its shaping takes place in stages, and it is essential to take such stages into account in the process of implementing the strategy of an enterprise. Providing a comprehensive insight into 'organizational culture' and its relationship to change, this book will be essential reading for professionals involved in business management and IT management throughout the world. Its analyses and suggestions will allow for improved organizational culture and change management in business environments.
