Historia de la Literatura Griega

Historia de la Literatura Griega

Author: Rafael Carrion Arias Format: Hardback Release Date: 30/07/2020

El libro que aqui presentamos esta dirigido tanto al estudioso de la literatura y de la antiguedad en general, como al especialista en la filosofia nietzscheana en particular. Se trata del primer monografico dedicado a un texto de gran importancia en el corpus nietzscheano: las lecciones de F. Nietzsche acerca de la Historia de la literatura griega (Vorlesungen uber Geschichte der griechischen Literatur I/II y III), resultado de sus ultimos anos de docencia en Basel y que en palabras de su primer editor Otto Crusius es la quintaesencia de las clases teoricas y practicas anteriormente impartidas. El destino del legado postumo del filosofo habia dificultado hasta ahora un acceso critico a dichos materiales. Su reciente edicion y traduccion critica, sin embargo, ha empezado a posibilitar por fin el analisis pormenorizado de lo que ellos contienen. El lector encontrara en este estudio una moneda de doble valor: pues con el podra ganar conocimientos muy valiosos acerca de metodologias para el estudio de la literatura, de obras y autores de la antiguedad, asi como un acceso exclusivo al laboratorio nietzscheano previo a su etapa de madurez. Se trata de una investigacion altamente original, que descubre un periodo apenas conocido pero fundamental en la gestacion del pensamiento nietzscheano y que en su exposicion organica pone en serio cuestionamiento varias de las constantes instauradas en la Nietzscheforschung aun a dia de hoy.

Emerging Trends and Impacts of the Internet of Things in Libraries

Emerging Trends and Impacts of the Internet of Things in Libraries

Author: Barbara Holland Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/07/2020

Over the years, new IT approaches have manifested, including digital transformation, cloud computing, and the internet of things (IoT). They have had a profound impact on the population, including libraries. Many organizations can save on their IT budget by adopting these new approaches because they provide technology in easier ways, often at lower costs and to the benefit of users. Emerging Trends and Impacts of the Internet of Things in Libraries is a critical research publication that explores advancing technologies, specifically the internet of things, and their applications within library settings. Moreover, the book will provide insights and explore case studies on smart libraries. Featuring a wide range of topics such as smart technology, automation, and robotics, this book is ideal for librarians, professionals, academicians, computer scientists, researchers, and students working in the fields of library science, information and communication sciences, and information technology.

Big Data 2.0 Processing Systems

Big Data 2.0 Processing Systems

Author: Sherif Sakr Format: Hardback Release Date: 10/07/2020

This book provides readers the big picture and a comprehensive survey of the domain of big data processing systems. For the past decade, the Hadoop framework has dominated the world of big data processing, yet recently academia and industry have started to recognize its limitations in several application domains and thus, it is now gradually being replaced by a collection of engines that are dedicated to specific verticals (e.g. structured data, graph data, and streaming data). The book explores this new wave of systems, which it refers to as Big Data 2.0 processing systems. After Chapter 1 presents the general background of the big data phenomena, Chapter 2 provides an overview of various general-purpose big data processing systems that allow their users to develop various big data processing jobs for different application domains. In turn, Chapter 3 examines various systems that have been introduced to support the SQL flavor on top of the Hadoop infrastructure and provide competing and scalable performance in the processing of large-scale structured data. Chapter 4 discusses several systems that have been designed to tackle the problem of large-scale graph processing, while the main focus of Chapter 5 is on several systems that have been designed to provide scalable solutions for processing big data streams, and on other sets of systems that have been introduced to support the development of data pipelines between various types of big data processing jobs and systems. Next, Chapter 6 focuses on covering the emerging frameworks and systems in the domain of scalable machine learning and deep learning processing. Lastly, Chapter 7 shares conclusions and an outlook on future research challenges. This new and considerably enlarged second edition not only contains the completely new chapter 6, but also offers a refreshed content for the state-of-the-art in all domains of big data processing over the last years. Overall, the book offers a valuable reference guide for professional, students, and researchers in the domain of big data processing systems. Further, its comprehensive content will hopefully encourage readers to pursue further research on the subject.
