            An award-winning Financial Times columnist exposes the threat that Big Tech poses to our democracies, our economies and ourselves Today Google and Facebook receive 90% of the world's news ad-spending. Amazon takes half of all ecommerce in the US. Google and Apple operating system...s run on all but 1% of cell phones globally. And 80% of corporate wealth is now held by 10% of companies - not the GEs and Toyotas of this world, but the digital titans. How did we get here? How did the tech industry get to dominate our world so completely? How did once-idealistic and innovative companies come to manipulate elections, violate our privacy, and pose a threat to the fabric of our democracy? In Don't Be Evil, Financial Times global business columnist Rana Foroohar documents how Big Tech lost its soul - and became the new Wall Street. Through her skilled reporting and unparalleled access - won through nearly 30 years covering business and technology - she shows the true extent to which the 'Faang's (Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix and Google) crush or absorb any potential competitors, hijack our personal data and mental space and offshore their exorbitant profits. What's more, she reveals how these threats to our democracies, our livelihoods and our minds are all intertwined. Yet Foroohar also lays out a plan for how we can resist, creating a framework that fosters innovation while also protecting us from the dark side of digital technology.

            This book teaches nonfiction storytellers how to creatively and strategically use sound to influence their audience and bring their stories to life. Sound is a critical element in film and video storytelling, and yet its importance is often overlooked until a post-production emer...gency arises. Written by two experienced creators - one a seasoned nonfiction producer/director with a background in music, and one a sound designer who owns a well-regarded mix studio - this book teaches nonfiction producers, filmmakers, and other content creators how to create better stories and how to proactively improve sound workflow from field to post. In addition to discussions of the authors' own experiences and examples, interviews with industry professionals across many genres of nonfiction production are included throughout. Written in a conversational style, the book pinpoints real-world topics and considerations like 360 video and viewer accessibility. As such, it is a vital point of reference for all nonfiction filmmakers, directors and producers, or anyone wanting to learn how to improve their storytelling. An accompanying Companion Website offers listening exercises, production sound layout diagrams, post templates, and other resources from sound suppliers.

            ChatBots, TeacherBots, and Pedagogical Agents: Systems and Programs That Teach illuminates the opportunities and challenges of instructional machines and proposes ways to design bots that enhance learning and teaching. These technologies have been used for numerous purposes-from ...answering student questions to increasing students' motivation, comfort, and problem-solving skills- but the evidence supporting positive outcomes is ambiguous, and much less is known about the ways that learners and bots interact. This qualitative, ethnographic investigation offers students, faculty, administrators, researchers, developers, and other stakeholders a firm understanding of the emerging bot market.

            This book aims at providing readers with an introduction to the fundamental concepts in the area of argumentation mining. This is an area with strong background in linguistics and in artificial intelligence, with clearly applied goals. In this book, we provide readers with an ins...ight of the phenomena that are found in argumentative texts and dialogues, outlining their complexity and their characteristics. Then, we describe different approaches to formalizing these phenomena and the argumentation process in general. Finally, we present different applications of argumentation mining, in the domains of legal texts, opinion analysis, debates, and scientific literature, and we show different approaches to bridge the gap between theory and application. We devote a special emphasis to the manual annotation of argumentative texts for different purposes, in order to narrow down abstract concepts and to better understand the idiosyncrasy of argumentative phenomena, all of this with applied goals and different types of media in sight.

            Implementing SAP (R) CRM: The Guide for Business and Technology Managers

            Implementing SAP (R) CRM: The Guide for Business and Technology Managers (Paperback)

            In today's competitive business environment, most companies realize that the better they can manage their customer relationships, the more successful they will become. Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software systems are key tools for companies to manage the customer-facin...g processes of their businesses. However, many companies have resisted implementing this most critical customer-oriented application due in large part to the lack of a single-point resource on implementing a CRM system. This book attempts to fill that gap. Implementing SAP (R) CRM will help technologists and managers come to grips with the vision, concept, and technology of CRM. It begins by laying out the groundwork for understanding CRM. It explains the concept and context of CRM and the tangible business benefits of CRM adoption. Demonstrating a professional approach to the evaluation and selection of SAP, it details the critical success factors (CSFs), patterns, and anti-patterns of a successful SAP CRM implementation. CRM implementations can add significant benefit to the company's bottom line only if the company first transforms itself into a customer-centric and customer-responsive enterprise. This book explains what it means to be a customer-centric and responsive enterprise, and provides a framework for business operations based on customer relationships, rather than the traditional four Ps (product, positioning, price, promotion). It further spells out business process reengineering (BPR) strategies to configure internal business processes and operations with SAP CRM to improve customer-facing strategies, services, and relationships.
