            John Maeda is one of the world's preeminent thinkers on technology and design, and in How to Speak Machine, he offers a set of simple laws that govern not only the computers of today, but the unimaginable machines of the future. Machines are already more powerful than we can comp...rehend, and getting more powerful at an exponential pace. Once set in motion, algorithms never tire. And when a program's size, speed and endlessness combine with its ability to learn and transform itself, the outcome can be unpredictable and dangerous. Take the seemingly instant transformation of Microsoft's chatbot into a hate-spewing racist, or how crime-predicting algorithms reinforce racial bias. How To Speak Machine provides a coherent framework for today's product designers, business leaders and policymakers to grasp this brave new world. Drawing on his wide-ranging experience from engineering to computer science to design, Maeda shows how businesses and individuals can identify opportunities afforded by technology to make world-changing and inclusive products while avoiding the pitfalls inherent to the medium.

From scalable algorithm de...sign for massive concurrency toperformance analyses and scientific visualization, Petascale Computing: Algorithms and Applications captures the state of the art in high-performance computing algorithms and applications. Featuring contributions from the world's leading experts in computational science, this edited collection explores the use of petascale computers for solving the most difficult scientific and engineering problems of the current century. Covering a wide range of important topics, the book illustrates how petascale computing can be applied to space and Earth science missions, biological systems, weather prediction, climate science, disasters, black holes, and gamma ray bursts. It details the simulation of multiphysics, cosmological evolution, molecular dynamics, and biomolecules. The book also discusses computational aspects that include the Uintah framework, Enzo code, multithreaded algorithms, petaflops, performance analysis tools, multilevel finite element solvers, finite element code development, Charm++, and the Cactus framework. Supplying petascale tools, programming methodologies, and an eight-page color insert, this volume addresses the challenging problems of developing application codes that can take advantage of the architectural features of the new petascale systems in advance of their first deployment.

            Health care utilization routinely generates vast amounts of data from sources ranging from electronic medical records, insurance claims, vital signs, and patient-reported outcomes. Predicting health outcomes using data modeling approaches is an emerging field that can reveal impo...rtant insights into disproportionate spending patterns. This book presents data driven methods, especially machine learning, for understanding and approaching the high utilizers problem, using the example of a large public insurance program. It describes important goals for data driven approaches from different aspects of the high utilizer problem, and identifies challenges uniquely posed by this problem. Key Features: Introduces basic elements of health care data, especially for administrative claims data, including disease code, procedure codes, and drug codes Provides tailored supervised and unsupervised machine learning approaches for understanding and predicting the high utilizers Presents descriptive data driven methods for the high utilizer population Identifies a best-fitting linear and tree-based regression model to account for patients' acute and chronic condition loads and demographic characteristics

            Gain Critical Insight into the Parallel I/O Ecosystem Parallel I/O is an integral component of modern high performance computing (HPC), especially in storing and processing very large datasets to facilitate scientific discovery. Revealing the state of the art in this field, High ...Performance Parallel I/O draws on insights from leading practitioners, researchers, software architects, developers, and scientists who shed light on the parallel I/O ecosystem. The first part of the book explains how large-scale HPC facilities scope, configure, and operate systems, with an emphasis on choices of I/O hardware, middleware, and applications. The book then traverses up the I/O software stack. The second part covers the file system layer and the third part discusses middleware (such as MPIIO and PLFS) and user-facing libraries (such as Parallel-NetCDF, HDF5, ADIOS, and GLEAN). Delving into real-world scientific applications that use the parallel I/O infrastructure, the fourth part presents case studies from particle-in-cell, stochastic, finite volume, and direct numerical simulations. The fifth part gives an overview of various profiling and benchmarking tools used by practitioners. The final part of the book addresses the implications of current trends in HPC on parallel I/O in the exascale world.
