Every time we choose a route to work, decide whether to go on a second date, or set aside money for a rainy day, we are making a prediction about the future. Yet from the global financial crisis to 9/11 to the Fukushima disaster, we often fail to foresee hugely significant events. In The Signal and the Noise, the New York Times' political forecaster and statistics guru Nate Silver explores the art of prediction, revealing how we can all build a better crystal ball. In his quest to distinguish the true signal from a universe of noisy data, Silver visits hundreds of expert forecasters, in fields ranging from the stock market to the poker table, from earthquakes to terrorism. What lies behind their success? And why do so many predictions still fail? By analysing the rare prescient forecasts, and applying a more quantitative lens to everyday life, Silver distils the essential lessons of prediction. We live in an increasingly data-driven world, but it is harder than ever to detect the true patterns amid the noise of information. In this dazzling insider's tour of the world of forecasting, Silver reveals how we can all develop better foresight in our everyday lives.

Building on the unique features that made the first edition a bestseller, this second edition includes additional solved problems and web access to the large collection of MATLABTM scripts that are highlighted throughout the text. The book offers expanded coverage of audio engineering, transducers, and sensor networking technology. It also includes new chapters on digital audio processing, as well as acoustics and vibrations transducers. The text addresses the use of meta-data architectures using XML and agent-based automated data mining and control. The numerous algorithms presented can be applied locally or network-based to solve complex detection problems.

Signal Processing for Intelligent Sensors with MATLAB®, Second Edition once again presents the key topics and salient information required for sensor design and application. Organized to make it accessible to engineers in school as well as those practicing in the field, this reference explores a broad array of subjects and is divided into sections: Fundamentals of Digital Signal Processing, Frequency Domain Processing, Adaptive System Identification and Filtering, Wavenumber Sensor Systems, and Signal Processing Applications. Taking an informal, application-based approach and using a tone that is more engineer-to-engineer than professor-to-student, this revamped second edition enhances many of the features that made the original so popular. This includes retention of key algorithms and development methodologies and applications, which are creatively grouped in a way that differs from most comparable texts, to optimize their use. New for the Second Edition: Inclusion of more solved problems Web access to a large collection of MATLAB® scripts used to support data graphs presented throughout the book Additional coverage of more audio engineering, transducers, and sensor networking technology A new chapter on Digital Audio processing reflects a growing interest in digital surround sound (5.1 audio) techniques for entertainment, home theaters, and virtual reality systems New sections on sensor networking, use of meta-data architectures using XML, and agent-based automated data mining and control Serving dual roles as both a learning resource and a field reference on sensor system networks, this book progressively reveals digestible nuggets of critical information to help readers quickly master presented algorithms and adapt them to meet their requirements. It illustrates the current trend toward agile development of web services for wide area sensor networking and intelligent processing in the sensor system networks that are employed in homeland security, business, and environmental and demographic information systems.

يعد مسار هذه الرواية بالتحديد أكثر تعقيدًا من غيرها، فقد طرحت شِلي فيها أفكارًا جريئة جديدة بالنسبة لعصرها عن الإبداع عندما يتخطى حدود الطبيعة، وقد تعاظَم هذا المسار واستقلَّ بشكلٍ ما عن الرواية نفسها، وصار في حَدّ ذاته نوعًا من المجاز والأسطورة شَقّ لنفسه طريقًا في الفنون الأخرى مثل السينما والمسرح والكاريكاتور والكومِكس، وصار اسم فرانكنشتاين مُرادِفًا لكل إبداع عندما يصير هوسًا يَجلِب عواقب وخيمة على المُبدِع والعالم، ومرادفًا للوحشيَّة وقد تحرَّرَت من عِقالها.

حدث ذات يوم أن أفادنى رجال فرق القمصان السوداء فى إيمولا بأن سيفا سيهدى إلي منقوشا عليها قول مكيافيللى «ليست المحافظة على الدول بالكلام» وكان أن وضع حد لترددى وتحدد اختيار موضوع الرسالة الذى أقدمه اليوم لتقترعوا عليه. وبإمكانى تسميته «تعليق عام 1924 على كتاب الأمير لمكيافيللى» . وذلك الكتاب الذى أود أن أطلق عليه «ملازم رجل الحكم» يقتضى للأمانة الفكرية أن أذكر أن مراجع رسالتى هذه قليلة، كما سنرى فيما بعد. لقد قرأت كتاب «الأمير» وغيره من مؤلفات ذلك (الأمين العظيم) قراءة واعية ولكن الوقت والإرادة حالا دون أن أقرأ جميع ما كتب عن مكيافيللى فى إيطاليا وفى العالم. وأردت أن أضع بينى وبينه أقل عدد من الوسطاء القدامى أو المحدثين، الإيطاليين والأجانب، كى لا أفسد عملية الاتصال المباشر بين مذهبه وحياتى التى عشتها وبين ما لاحظ ولاحظت عن البشر والأشياء وبين ممارسته للحكم وممارستى.
