              The Slow Evolution of Foster Care in Australia: Just Like a Family? (Trade Paperback / Paperback, Softcover reprint of the original 1st ed. 2018)

              This book draws on archival, oral history and public policy sources to tell a history of foster care in Australia from the nineteenth century to the present day. It is, primarily, a social history which places the voices of people directly touched by foster care at the centre of ...the story, but also within the wider social and political debates which have shaped foster care across more than a century. The book confronts foster care's difficult past-death and abuse of foster children, family separation, and a general public apathy towards these issues-but it also acknowledges the resilience of people who have survived a childhood in foster care, and the challenges faced by those who have worked hard to provide good foster homes and to make child welfare systems better. These are themes which the book examines from an Australian perspective, but which often resonate with foster care globally.

              This book presents original contributions on the theories and practices of emerging Internet, data and web technologies and their applicability in businesses, engineering and academia. The Internet has become the most proliferative platform for emerging large-scale computing para...digms. Among them, data and web technologies are two most prominent paradigms, and manifest in a variety of forms such as data centers, cloud computing, mobile cloud, mobile web services and so on. Together, these technologies form a digital ecosystem based on the data cycle, from capturing to processing, analysis and visualization. The investigation of various research and development issues in this digital ecosystem is made all the more important by the ever-increasing needs of real-life applications, which involve storing and processing large amounts of data. As a key feature, the book addresses advances in the life-cycle exploitation of data generated from the digital ecosystem, and data technologies that create value for businesses, moving toward a collective intelligence approach. Given its scope, the book offers a valuable reference guide for researchers, software developers, practitioners and students interested in the field of data and web technologies.

              Control and Filtering of Fuzzy Systems with Switched Parameters
               

              Control and Filtering of Fuzzy Systems with Switched Parameters (Hardback, 1st ed. 2020)

              This book presents recent advances in control and filter design for Takagi-Sugeno (T-S) fuzzy systems with switched parameters. Thanks to its powerful ability in transforming complicated nonlinear systems into a set of linear subsystems, the T-S fuzzy model has received considera...ble attention from those the field of control science and engineering. Typical applications of T-S fuzzy systems include communication networks, and mechanical and power electronics systems. Practical systems often experience abrupt variations in their parameters or structures due to outside disturbances or component failures, and random switching mechanisms have been used to model these stochastic changes, such as the Markov jump principle. There are three general types of controller/filter for fuzzy Markov jump systems: mode-independent, mode-dependent and asynchronous. Mode-independence does not focus on whether modes are accessible and ignores partially useful mode information, which results in some conservatism. The mode-dependent design approach relies on timely, complete and correct information regarding the mode of the studied plant. Factors like component failures and data dropouts often make it difficult to obtain exact mode messages, which further make the mode-dependent controllers/filters less useful. Recently, to overcome these issues, researchers have focused on asynchronous techniques. Asynchronous modes are accessed by observing the original systems based on certain probabilities. The book investigates the problems associated with controller/filter design for all three types. It also considers various networked constraints, such as data dropouts and time delays, and analyzes the performances of the systems based on Lyapunov function and matrix inequality techniques, including the stochastic stability, dissipativity, and $H_\infty$. The book not only shows how these approaches solve the control and filtering problems effectively, but also offers potential meaningful research
