              Advances in smart healthcare systems (SHS) and artificial intelligence (AI) domains highlight the need for ICT systems that aim not only to improve human quality of life but improve safety too. SHS bring together concepts and methodologies from various fields, such as communicati...ons and network systems, computer science, life sciences and healthcare. The well-known smart healthcare paradigms are; real-time monitoring devices, computer-aided surgery devices, telemedicine devices, population-based care devices, personalized medicine from a machine learning perspective, ubiquities intelligent computing, expert decision support systems, Health 2.0 and Internet of Things (IoT). This book presents models for the deployment of intelligent computing, information, and networking technologies to aid in preventing disease, improving the quality of care and lowering overall cost. It also discusses the potential role of the AI paradigms, computational intelligence and machine learning techniques which are used in developing the SHS. It will provide examples of potential usage of such technology in smart healthcare and and bio-medical systems. It will be an important read for researchers and professionals working in smart healthcare systems, as well as those working in the individual areas of networks, artificial intelligence and healthcare who want to see how an interdisciplinary approach can enhance the current technology.

              Hospitality managers are at a critical inflection point. On one front, they face intensifying competition in traditional competition channels that demands breakthroughs in efficiency and guest experience. On another front, they face accelerating levels of complicatedness, complex...ity and volatility that require them to adapt to more and more surprising events and crises. On yet another front, and an arguably more critical one, they face unprecedented changes in digital technology innovations. Advancements in these digital technologies are ramping up guest expectations and introducing non - traditional competitors that are beginning to disrupt the whole industry. The hospitality managers whose organisations are to thrive need to get their organisations into a position where they can effectively leverage digital technologies to simultaneously deliver breakthroughs in efficiency, agility and guest experience. Digital transformation and hospitality management is a much-needed digital disruption, digital transformation, and digital business guidebook for current and prospective hospitality and leisure managers. The book: Explains digital technology advancements, how they cause disruption, and the implications of this disruption for hospitality and leisure organisations Explains the digital business and digital transformation imperative for hospitality and leisure organisations Discusses the different digital capabilities required to effectively compete as a digital business Discusses the new or enhanced roles hospitality and leisure manages managers need to play in effecting different digital capabilities, as well as the competencies required to play these roles Unpacks more than 36 key digital technology advancements , discussing what they are, how they work, how they are used and how they could be used in the hospitality and leisure industry - these include advancements such as the Internet of Things, Blockchain, Smart Infrastructure, Intelligent Virtual Assistants, LPW

              NB-IoT is the Internet of Things (IoT) technology used for cellular communication. NB-IoT devices deliver much better capability and performance such as increased area coverage of up to one Kilo-meter, massive number of devices up to 200,000 devices per a single base station area..., longer battery lifetime of 10 years, and better indoor and outdoor coverage for area with weak signal such as underground garages. The cellular NB-IoT technology is a challenging technology to use and understand. With more than +30 projects presented in this book, covering many use cases and scenarios, it provides hands-on and practical experience of how to use the cellular NB-IoT for smart applications using Arduino, Amazon cloud, Google map, and charts. The book starts by explaining AT commands used to configure the NB-IoT modem, data serialization and deserialization, how to set up the cloud for connecting NB-IoT devices, setting up rules, policy, security certificates, and NoSQL database on the cloud, how to store and read data on cloud, how to use Google map to visualize NB-IoT device geo-location, and how to use charts to visualize sensor datasets. Projects for Arduino are presented into four parts. The first part explains how to connect the device to the mobile operator and cellular network, perform communication using different network protocols such as TCP, HTTP, SSL, or MQTT, how to use GPS for geo-location applications, and how to upgrade NB-IoT modem firmware over the air. The second part explains the microcontroller unit and how to build and run projects such as 7-segment display or real time clock. The third part explains how NB-IoT can be used with sensor devices such as ultrasonic and environmental sensors. Finally, the fourth part explains how NB-IoT can be used to control actuators such as stepper motors and relays. This book is a unique resource in understanding practical uses of the NB-IoT technology and serves as a handbook for technical and non-technical readers who a

              Games as Texts provides an overview and practical steps for analyzing games in terms of their representations of social structures, class, power, race, sexuality, gender, animals, nature, and ability. Each chapter applies a traditional literary theory to the narrative and mechani...cs of games, and explores the social commentary the games encourage. This approach demonstrates to players, researchers, games media, and non-gamers how they can engage with these cultural artefacts through both critical reading and theoretical interpretations. Key Features: Explores games through various literary and theoretical lenses Provides exemplar analysis and guiding questions to help readers think critically about games Highlights the social commentary that all texts can reveal-including games-and how this impacts narrative and mechanics
