Database administration techniques relevant to hosting databases in the cloud are shown in the book as well as the technical details needed to perform all database administration tasks and activities, such as migration to the cloud, backup in the cloud, and new database setup in the cloud. You will learn from real-world business cases and practical examples of administration of Oracle database in the cloud, highlighting the challenges faced and solutions implemented. What you will learn: Cloud computing concepts from the DBA perspective, such as private cloud, public cloud, hybrid cloud Technical details of all aspects of cloud database administration Challenges faced during setup of databases in private cloud or database migration to public cloud Key points to be kept in mind during database administration in the cloud Practical examples of successful Oracle database cloud migration and support Who Is This Book For All levels of IT professionals, from executives responsible for determining database strategies to database administrators and database architects who manage and design databases.
This book focuses on video-based, corneal-reflection eye trackers - the most widely available and affordable type of system, and takes a look at a number of interesting and challenging applications in human factors, collaborative systems, virtual reality, marketing and advertising. The third edition has been extensively revised and extended, and includes new chapters on calibration accuracy, precision and correction; advanced eye movement analysis; binocular eye movement analysis; practical gaze analytics; design; GIS. Opening with useful background information, including an introduction to the human visual system and key issues in visual perception and eye movement, the author then surveys eye-tracking devices and provides a detailed introduction to the technical requirements necessary for installing a system and developing an application program.
Logic Programming is the name given to a distinctive style of programming, very different from that of conventional programming languages such as C++ and Java. By far the most widely used Logic Programming language is Prolog. Prolog is a good choice for developing complex applications, especially in the field of Artificial Intelligence. Logic Programming with Prolog does not assume that the reader is an experienced programmer or has a background in Mathematics, Logic or Artificial Intelligence. It starts from scratch and aims to arrive at the point where quite powerful programs can be written in the language. It is intended both as a textbook for an introductory course and as a self-study book. On completion readers will know enough to use Prolog in their own research or practical projects. Each chapter has self-assessment exercises so that readers may check their own progress. A glossary of the technical terms used completes the book. This second edition has been revised to be fully compatible with SWI-Prolog, a popular multi-platform public domain implementation of the language. Additional chapters have been added covering the use of Prolog to analyse English sentences and to illustrate how Prolog can be used to implement applications of an ´Artificial Intelligence´ kind. Max Bramer is Emeritus Professor of Information Technology at the University of Portsmouth, England. He has taught Prolog to undergraduate computer science students and used Prolog in his own work for many years.
