This book provides a formal analysis of alternative, non-relational data models and storage mechanisms and gives a decent overview of non-SQL query languages. It describes a perspective beyond SQL and relational database management systems and thus covers the theoretical background of modern data management. It also helps to take informed decisions about what database systems to use.

Big Data in medical science – what exactly is that? What are the potentials for healthcare management? Where is Big Data at the moment? Which risk factors need to be kept in mind? What is hype and what is real potential? This book provides an impression of the new possibilities of networked data analysis and "Big Data" – for and within medical science and healthcare management. Big Data is about the collection, storage, search, distribution, statistical analysis and visualization of large amounts of data. This is especially relevant in healthcare management, as the amount of digital information is growing exponentially. An amount of data corresponding to 12 million novels emerges during the time of a single hospital stay. These are dimensions that cannot be dealt with without IT technologies. What can we do with the data that are available today? What will be possible in the next few years? Do we want everything that is possible? Who protects the data from wrong usage? More importantly, who protects the data from NOT being used? Big Data is the "resource of the 21st century" and might change the world of medical science more than we understand, realize and want at the moment. The core competence of Big Data will be the complete and correct collection, evaluation and interpretation of data. This also makes it possible to estimate the frame conditions and possibilities of the automation of daily (medical) routine. Can Big Data in medical science help to better understand fundamental problems of health and illness, and draw consequences accordingly? Big Data also means the overcoming of sector borders in healthcare management. The specialty of Big Data analysis will be the new quality of the outcomes of the combination of data that were not related before. That is why the editor of the book gives a voice to 30 experts, working in a variety of fields, such as in hospitals, in health insurance or as medical practitioners. The authors show potentials, risks, concrete practical examples, future scenarios, and come up with possible answers for the field of information technology and data privacy.

Introduction, Features, Classifiers and Principles

The book offers a thorough introduction to Pattern Recognition aimed at master and advanced bachelor students of engineering and the natural sciences. Besides classification - the heart of Pattern Recognition - special emphasis is put on features, their typology, their properties and their systematic construction. Additionally, general principles that govern Pattern Recognition are illustrated and explained in a comprehensible way. Rather than presenting a complete overview over the rapidly evolving field, the book is to clarifies the concepts so that the reader can easily understand the underlying ideas and the rationale behind the methods. For this purpose, the mathematical treatment of Pattern Recognition is pushed so far that the mechanisms of action become clear and visible, but not farther. Therefore, not all derivations are driven into the last mathematical detail, as a mathematician would expect it. Ideas of proofs are presented instead of complete proofs. From the authors’ point of view, this concept allows to teach the essential ideas of Pattern Recognition with sufficient depth within a relatively lean book. Mathematical methods explained thoroughly Extremely practical approach with many examples Based on over ten years lecture at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology For students but also for practitioners

As a mature topic in chemical engineering, the book provides methods, problems and tools used in process control engineering. It discusses: process knowledge, sensor system technology, actuators, communication technology, and logistics, design and construction of control systems and their operation. The knowledge goes beyond the traditional process engineering field by applying the same principles, to biomedical processes, energy production and management of environmental issues. The book explains all the determinations in the "chemical systems" or "process systems", starting from the beginning of the processes, going through the intricate interdependency of the process stages, analyzing the hardware components of a control system and ending with the design of an appropriate control system for a process parameter or a whole process. The book is first addressed to the students and graduates of the departments of Chemical or Process Engineering. Second, to the chemical or process engineers in all industries or research and development centers, because they will notice the resemblance in approach from the system and control point of view, between different fields which might seem far from each other, but share the same control philosophy.

This book details decision analysis techniques with applications in engineering design and management and also analyzes decision making and risk management processes to better understand and improve decision making systems. Most books on decision analysis fall into two categories: those that are straightforward management decision making texts that that do not delve into more sophisticated techniques and concepts and those that emphasize the theoretical and analytical aspects, but do not discuss other perspectives on decision making. As such, this is the first book to present multiple perspectives on decision making without being too theoretical, all in effort to be useful to current and future engineers. The book presents three varied perspectives on decision making: problem-solving; the decision making process; and decision making systems. Practical examples and applications are plentiful and illustrate how to model and improve decision making systems. The mathematical rigor is kept to a minimum and is only used when comparing and contrasting different techniques. Extensive instructor resources are available, including worked solutions to all exercises, daily lesson plans for lectures, in-class activities, and sample assignments and exams. Topical coverage includes: an introduction to engineering decision making; decision making fundamentals; multi-criteria decision making; group decision making; decision making under uncertainty; game theory; decision making processes; the value of information; risk management; decision making systems; and modeling and improving decision making systems.
