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.
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) provides a ´´simple´´ set of operations that allows you to more easily monitor and manage network devices like routers, switches, servers, printers, and more. The information you can monitor with SNMP is wide-ranging--from standard items, like the amount of traffic flowing into an interface, to far more esoteric items, like the air temperature inside a router. In spite of its name, though, SNMP is not especially simple to learn. O´Reilly has answered the call for help with a practical introduction that shows how to install, configure, and manage SNMP. Written for network and system administrators, the book introduces the basics of SNMP and then offers a technical background on how to use it effectively. Essential SNMP explores both commercial and open source packages, and elements like OIDs, MIBs, community strings, and traps are covered in depth. The book contains five new chapters and various updates throughout. Other new topics include: * Expanded coverage of SNMPv1, SNMPv2, and SNMPv3 * Expanded coverage of SNMPc * The concepts behind network management and change management * RRDTool and Cricket * The use of scripts for a variety of tasks * How Java can be used to create SNMP applications * Net-SNMP´s Perl module The bulk of the book is devoted to discussing, with real examples, how to use SNMP for system and network administration tasks. Administrators will come away with ideas for writing scripts to help them manage their networks, create managed objects, and extend the operation of SNMP agents. Once demystified, SNMP is much more accessible. If you´re looking for a way to more easily manage your network, look no further than Essential SNMP, 2nd Edition.
