Blockchain and artificial intelligence (AI) in industrial internet of things is an emerging field of research at the intersection of information science, computer science, and electronics engineering. The radical digitization of industry coupled with the explosion of the internet of things (IoT) has set up a paradigm shift for industrial and manufacturing companies. There exists a need for a comprehensive collection of original research of the best performing methods and state-of-the-art approaches in this area of blockchain, AI, and the industrial internet of things in this new era for industrial and manufacturing companies. Blockchain and AI Technology in the Industrial Internet of Things compares different approaches to the industrial internet of things and explores the direct impact blockchain and AI technology have on the betterment of the human life. The chapters provide the latest advances in the field and provide insights and concerns on the concept and growth of the industrial internet of things. While including research on security and privacy, supply chain management systems, performance analysis, and a variety of industries, this book is ideal for professionals, researchers, managers, technologists, security analysts, executives, practitioners, researchers, academicians, and students looking for advanced research and information on the newest technologies, advances, and approaches for blockchain and AI in the industrial internet of things.
This volume constitutes the refereed post-conference proceedings of the Third IFIP TC 5 DCITDRR International Conference on Information Technology in Disaster Risk Reduction, ITDRR 2018, held as part of the 24th IFIP World Computer Congress, WCC 2018, in Poznan, Poland, in September 2018. The 12 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 32 submissions. The papers focus on various aspects and challenges of coping with disaster risk reduction. The main topics include areas such as natural disasters, big data, cloud computing, Internet of Things, mobile computing, emergency management, disaster information processing, and disaster risk assessment and management.
This open access book summarizes the first two decades of the NII Testbeds and Community for Information access Research (NTCIR). NTCIR is a series of evaluation forums run by a global team of researchers and hosted by the National Institute of Informatics (NII), Japan. The book is unique in that it discusses not just what was done at NTCIR, but also how it was done and the impact it has achieved. For example, in some chapters the reader sees the early seeds of what eventually grew to be the search engines that provide access to content on the World Wide Web, today's smartphones that can tailor what they show to the needs of their owners, and the smart speakers that enrich our lives at home and on the move. We also get glimpses into how new search engines can be built for mathematical formulae, or for the digital record of a lived human life. Key to the success of the NTCIR endeavor was early recognition that information access research is an empirical discipline and that evaluation therefore lay at the core of the enterprise. Evaluation is thus at the heart of each chapter in this book. They show, for example, how the recognition that some documents are more important than others has shaped thinking about evaluation design. The thirty-three contributors to this volume speak for the many hundreds of researchers from dozens of countries around the world who together shaped NTCIR as organizers and participants. This book is suitable for researchers, practitioners, and students-anyone who wants to learn about past and present evaluation efforts in information retrieval, information access, and natural language processing, as well as those who want to participate in an evaluation task or even to design and organize one.
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 27th International Symposium on String Processing and Information Retrieval, SPIRE 2020, held in Orlando, FL, USA, in October 2020. The 17 full papers and 4 short papers presented in this volume were carefully reviewed and selected from 32 submissions. They cover topics such as: data structures; algorithms; information retrieval; compression; combinatorics on words; and computational biology.
This contributed volume discusses essential topics and the fundamentals for Big Data Emergency Management and primarily focusses on the application of Big Data for Emergency Management. It walks the reader through the state of the art, in different facets of the big disaster data field. This includes many elements that are important for these technologies to have real-world impact. This book brings together different computational techniques from: machine learning, communication network analysis, natural language processing, knowledge graphs, data mining, and information visualization, aiming at methods that are typically used for processing big emergency data. This book also provides authoritative insights and highlights valuable lessons by distinguished authors, who are leaders in this field. Emergencies are severe, large-scale, non-routine events that disrupt the normal functioning of a community or a society, causing widespread and overwhelming losses and impacts. Emergency Management is the process of planning and taking actions to minimize the social and physical impact of emergencies and reduces the community's vulnerability to the consequences of emergencies. Information exchange before, during and after the disaster periods can greatly reduce the losses caused by the emergency. This allows people to make better use of the available resources, such as relief materials and medical supplies. It also provides a channel through which reports on casualties and losses in each affected area, can be delivered expeditiously. Big Data-Driven Emergency Management refers to applying advanced data collection and analysis technologies to achieve more effective and responsive decision-making during emergencies. Researchers, engineers and computer scientists working in Big Data Emergency Management, who need to deal with large and complex sets of data will want to purchase this book. Advanced-level students interested in data-driven emergency/crisis/disaster management will also want to purchase this book as a study guide.
