Recommending Books for Purchase (Bulletin 120 - Dec 2020) - IGI 2019 Publications: Network Architecture
Distributed systems intertwine with our everyday lives. The benefits and current shortcomings of the underpinning technologies are experienced by a wide range of people and their smart devices. With the rise of large-scale IoT and similar distributed systems, cloud bursting technologies, and partial outsourcing solutions, private entities are encouraged to increase their efficiency and offer unparalleled availability and reliability to their users. Applying Integration Techniques and Methods in Distributed Systems is a critical scholarly publication that defines the current state of distributed systems, determines further goals, and presents architectures and service frameworks to achieve highly integrated distributed systems and presents solutions to integration and efficient management challenges faced by current and future distributed systems. Highlighting topics such as multimedia, programming languages, and smart environments, this book is ideal for system administrators, integrators, designers, developers, researchers, and academicians.
The blockchain revolution has drastically impacted global economics and the strategic practices within different industries. Cryptocurrency specifically has forever changed the face of business and the implementation of business online. While innovative, people are still in the early stages of building and developing blockchain technology and its applications, and it is critical that researchers and practitioners obtain a better understanding of this global phenomenon. Architectures and Frameworks for Developing and Applying Blockchain Technology is an essential reference source that presents the technological foundation, recent research findings, developments, and critical issues associated with blockchain technology from both computer science and social science perspectives. Featuring topics such as artificial intelligence, digital economy, and network technology, this book is ideally designed for academics, researchers, industry leaders, IT consultants, engineers, programmers, practitioners, government officials, policymakers, and students.
Cloud computing has experienced explosive growth and is expected to continue to rise in popularity as new services and applications become available. As with any new technology, security issues continue to be a concern, and developing effective methods to protect sensitive information and data on the cloud is imperative. Cloud Security: Concepts, Methodologies, Tools, and Applications explores the difficulties and challenges of securing user data and information on cloud platforms. It also examines the current approaches to cloud-based technologies and assesses the possibilities for future advancements in this field. Highlighting a range of topics such as cloud forensics, information privacy, and standardization and security in the cloud, this multi-volume book is ideally designed for IT specialists, web designers, computer engineers, software developers, academicians, researchers, and graduate-level students interested in cloud computing concepts and security.
Present day sophisticated, adaptive, and autonomous (to a certain degree) robotic technology is a radically new stimulus for the cognitive system of the human learner from the earliest to the oldest age. It deserves extensive, thorough, and systematic research based on novel frameworks for analysis, modelling, synthesis, and implementation of CPSs for social applications. Cyber-Physical Systems for Social Applications is a critical scholarly book that examines the latest empirical findings for designing cyber-physical systems for social applications and aims at forwarding the symbolic human-robot perspective in areas that include education, social communication, entertainment, and artistic performance. Highlighting topics such as evolinguistics, human-robot interaction, and neuroinformatics, this book is ideally designed for social network developers, cognitive scientists, education science experts, evolutionary linguists, researchers, and academicians.
