Описание: An extensively revised and updated edition of this popular and accessible text. Approaches and Methods in Language Teaching Third edition is an extensive revision of this highly successful book. As in previous editions, both major and alternative approaches and methods are surveyed, with the section on current communicative approaches updated to include new material on CLIL, text and genre-based teaching. The book seeks not only to clarify the assumptions behind these approaches, and their similarities and differences, but also to help teachers explore their own beliefs and practices in language teaching. Further new material deals with other directions in language teaching, such as outcomes-based initiatives, to make this edition fully up-to-date.

Описание: Traditional marketing techniques have become outdated by the emergence of the internet, and for companies to survive in the new technological marketplace, they must adopt digital marketing and business analytics practices. Unfortunately, with the benefits of improved storage and flow of information comes the risk of cyber-attack.Business Analytics and Cyber Security Management in Organizations compiles innovative research from international professionals discussing the opportunities and challenges of the new era of online business. Outlining updated discourse for business analytics techniques, strategies for data storage, and encryption in emerging markets, this book is ideal for business professionals, practicing managers, and students of business.
Описание: While Computer Security is a broader term which incorporates technologies, protocols, standards and policies to ensure the security of the computing systems including the computer hardware, software and the information stored in it, Cyber Security is a specific, growing field to protect computer networks (offline and online) from unauthorized access, botnets, phishing scams, etc. Machine learning is a branch of Computer Science which enables computing machines to adopt new behaviors on the basis of observable and verifiable data and information. It can be applied to ensure the security of the computers and the information by detecting anomalies using data mining and other such techniques. This book will be an invaluable resource to understand the importance of machine learning and data mining in establishing computer and cyber security. It emphasizes important security aspects associated with computer and cyber security along with the analysis of machine learning and data mining based solutions. The book also highlights the future research domains in which these solutions can be applied. Furthermore, it caters to the needs of IT professionals, researchers, faculty members, scientists, graduate students, research scholars and software developers who seek to carry out research and develop combating solutions in the area of cyber security using machine learning based approaches. It is an extensive source of information for the readers belonging to the field of Computer Science and Engineering, and Cyber Security professionals. Key Features: This book contains examples and illustrations to demonstrate the principles, algorithms, challenges and applications of machine learning and data mining for computer and cyber security. It showcases important security aspects and current trends in the field. It provides an insight of the future research directions in the field. Contents of this book help to prepare the students for exercising better defense in terms of understanding the motivation of the attackers and how to deal with and mitigate the situation using machine learning based approaches in better manner.
Описание: Reinforcement Learning for Cyber-Physical Systems: with Cybersecurity Case Studies was inspired by recent developments in the fields of reinforcement learning (RL) and cyber-physical systems (CPSs). Rooted in behavioral psychology, RL is one of the primary strands of machine learning. Different from other machine learning algorithms, such as supervised learning and unsupervised learning, the key feature of RL is its unique learning paradigm, i.e., trial-and-error. Combined with the deep neural networks, deep RL become so powerful that many complicated systems can be automatically managed by AI agents at a superhuman level. On the other hand, CPSs are envisioned to revolutionize our society in the near future. Such examples include the emerging smart buildings, intelligent transportation, and electric grids. However, the conventional hand-programming controller in CPSs could neither handle the increasing complexity of the system, nor automatically adapt itself to new situations that it has never encountered before. The problem of how to apply the existing deep RL algorithms, or develop new RL algorithms to enable the real-time adaptive CPSs, remains open. This book aims to establish a linkage between the two domains by systematically introducing RL foundations and algorithms, each supported by one or a few state-of-the-art CPS examples to help readers understand the intuition and usefulness of RL techniques. Features Introduces reinforcement learning, including advanced topics in RL Applies reinforcement learning to cyber-physical systems and cybersecurity Contains state-of-the-art examples and exercises in each chapter Provides two cybersecurity case studies Reinforcement Learning for Cyber-Physical Systems with Cybersecurity Case Studies is an ideal text for graduate students or junior/senior undergraduates in the fields of science, engineering, computer science, or applied mathematics. It would also prove useful to researchers and engineers interested in cybersecurity, RL, and CPS. The only background knowledge required to appreciate the book is a basic knowledge of calculus and probability theory.

Описание: With existing literature focusing largely on Western perspectives of peace and their applications, a global understanding of peace is much needed. Spurred by more recent debates and discourses that criticize the dominant realist and liberal approaches for crises in contemporary state- and peace-building, the contributors to this handbook emphasize not only the need to solve this eternal conundrum of humanity, but also demand—with the rise of increasingly more violent conflicts in international relations—the development of a global interpretive framework for peace and security. To this end, the present handbook examines conceptual, institutional and normative interpretive approaches for making, building and promoting peace in the context of roles played by state and non-state actors within local, national, regional, and global units of analysis.
