            Human Versus Machine: How To Beat Stockfish and Komodo Part III (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            This is Part III of my winning games against the top engines. This part features handicap wins. Most handicaps consist of 1 or 2 pawns material on average, factoring in relevant positional terms too. Though, that size of material advantage would include the widest selection of di...fferent start positions. Handicap games are definitely the most fun, especially to play, but I guess also to follow, as they feature imbalanced, tactically rich play, from the very first moves. For precisely the same reason, they are very good for training your tactics. Most of the credit for this volume goes to GM Larry Kaufman of the Komodo team. Whenever Komodo would play a match against some human, and Larry would post about the match on Talkchess forum, I would try my hand with the very same handicaps against the top engines. As said, handicap games are one of the greatest fun events possible in chess, so don't miss this book. Lyudmil Tsvetkov is a political scientist, former career diplomat, Bulgarian candidate master of chess since 1998 and one of the main Stockfish contributors. In the last 5 years, he has completely focused on chess analysis and the investigation of the deeper sides of chess knowledge.

Tactical positions have been checked with Stockfish, but the examples also show how imperfect Stockfish is in assessing the positional Fischer.Some would suggest it is easier to learn from weaker players, but no, the stronger the player, the more you will learn.Check your abilities and learn more from the 225 puzzles in this book, covering one third of Fischer's games.

            Master's Thesis from the year 2013 in the subject Computer Science - Miscellaneous, grade: Very good, course: Masters of Science in Computer Science, language: English, abstract: Speech recognition, a process of changing speech to text, has been one of a research area for the las...t many decades. Even though there are several techniques of modeling a speech recognizer, yet it is still challenging to find one that overcomes all the limitations. So this thesis examines the possibility of developing Tigrinya language speech recognizer by finding out which sub-word unit is most appropriate in developing efficient large vocabulary, speaker independent, and continuous Tigrinya speech recognition system using hidden Markov models (HMM). The recognizer was developed using Hidden Markov Model, and the Hidden Markov Modeling Toolkit was used to implement it. In the course of developing this system, the speech data is recorded at a sampling rate of 16 KHz and the recorded speech is converted into Mel Frequency Cepstral Coefficient (MFCC) vectors for further analysis and processing. In this research work, 1000 selected utterances were uttered by 26 selected peoples from different age group and sex constituting of 4643 unique words. Accordingly, the database is set up into two ways the first database comprised of 1000 utterances that are used for training and out of which 100 sentences were taken for testing and evaluation whereas the second database consists of 900 utterances for training and 100 utterances for test and evaluation which is different from the training set. Furthermore, the data is preprocessed in line with the requirements of the HTK toolkit and both the text and speech corpuses were prepared in consultation with the domain experts.

            The increasing connectivity among vehicles increases their attack surface and challenges their security. Combining security and automotive real-time systems is challenging in many ways. The heterogeneity and complexity of automotive communication systems and their interconnection...s make the quantification of security a difficult task. Lower computational capabilities and network bandwidth, coupled with the real-time behavior in automotive systems makes implementation of computation and bandwidth intensive security challenging. New solutions are required to address security in the automotive domain in context of not only functional, but also real-time requirements.

            There was a time when Information Technology was only known as Electronic Data Processing. Despite the fuss about innovative techniques, data process is still the heart of every system in the world--and even more so as the data sizes that are being managed today seems to grow at ...an exponential rate. Some of the architectural preferences are complete long shots on the future. You will definitely not only need an exceptionally firm grasp on the theoretical knowledge, but also rigor. However, those characteristics are essentials of any art. This book is definitely not a SQL cookbook wherein all possible problems and their solutions are listed. The aim is to impart not only a firm grasp of the fundamentals of database query language, but also a good working knowledge of the relational theory of SQL. It is also the aim of this book to help budding developers--and their administrators--to raise exceptionally good questions. There's a big chance that you'll still write bad code--inefficient queries after going through this book. A developer, from time to time, has to. Hopefully, however, it'll be knowingly and with perfectly good reason. Welcome readers to the world of SQL. Let's begin your journey.
