This unique and groundbreaking book highlights the key advances in ontology-based information retrieval techniques being applied in the healthcare domain and covers the following areas: Semantic data integration in e-health care systems Keyword-based medical information retrieval Ontology-based query retrieval support for e-health implementation Ontologies as a database management system technology for medical information retrieval Information integration using contextual knowledge and ontology merging Collaborative ontology-based information indexing and retrieval in health informatics An ontology-based text mining framework for vulnerability assessment in health and social care An ontology-based multi-agent system for matchmaking patient healthcare monitoring A multi-agent system for querying heterogeneous data sources with ontologies for reducing cost of customized healthcare systems A methodology for ontology based multi agent systems development Ontology based systems for clinical systems: validity, ethics and regulation

Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence

Author: Melanie Mitchell Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 24/09/2020

'If you think you understand AI and all of the related issues, you don't. By the time you finish this exceptionally lucid and riveting book you will breathe more easily and wisely' - Michael Gazzaniga A leading computer scientist brings human sense to the AI bubble No recent scientific enterprise has been so alluring, terrifying and filled with extravagant promise and frustrating setbacks as artificial intelligence. Writing with clarity and passion, leading AI researcher Melanie Mitchell offers a captivating account of modern-day artificial intelligence. Flavoured with personal stories and a twist of humour, Artificial Intelligence illuminates the workings of machines that mimic human learning, perception, language, creativity and common sense. Weaving together advances in AI with cognitive science and philosophy, Mitchell probes the extent to which today's 'smart' machines can actually think or understand, and whether AI even requires such elusive human qualities at all. Artificial Intelligence: A Guide for Thinking Humans provides readers with an accessible and clear-eyed view of the AI landscape, what the field has actually accomplished, how much further it has to go and what it means for all of our futures.

AI and UX

AI and UX

Author: Gavin Lew, Robert M. Schumacher Jr. Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 07/09/2020

Shine a light on how user experience (UX) will play a significant role in adoption of AI technologies across industries. This book explores how AI must be developed within a UX framework. The authors start by asking the question how do we make AI smarter? You will then quickly realize that the tried and true techniques of AI have been all about getting smarter. While we are making massive inroads, these may not be making AI more successful. It is not just about getting a product to market; it is-as always-about getting the product into people's hands in a form that will be used. That demands examining the product from the perspective of the user-a stage of product development we have come to accept as fundamental. But the new world of AI will necessitate a new UX lens for us to see through. We should be asking the questions that will get us to that new lens. This book is based on interviews on technologists in the field of AI and UX. It is comprised of three core areas: 1) The history of AI, 2) Product examples and failures, and 3) A UX framework to make AI successful. What You'll Learn Understand how the usage and success of AI depends on a great user experience Discover how technology can advance beyond it works to it works well, which subsequently increases its adoption Determine what ways can we let the users enhance the data to make AI better attuned to their needs Realize how you can make humans smarter in their interactions with AI Who This Book Is For Those interested in AI and future implications; these can be futurists, technophiles, or product designers and product managers working on AI products
