    The Department of Defense and the military continually grapple with complex scientific, engineering, and technological problems. Defense systems analysis offers a way to reach a clearer understanding of how to approach and think about complex problems. It guides analysts in defining the question, capturing previous work in the area, assessing the principal issues, and understanding how they are linked. The goal of defense systems analysis is not necessarily to find a particular solution but to provide a roadmap to a solution, or an understanding of the relative value of alternative solutions. In this book, experts in the field--all of them with more than twenty years of experience-- offer insights, advice, and concrete examples to guide practitioners in the art of defense systems analysis. The book describes general issues in systems analysis and analysis protocols in specific defense areas. It offers a useful overview of the process, a discussion of different venues, and prac ical advice running a study and reporting its results. It discusses red teaming (the search for vulnerabilities that might be exploited by an adversary) and its complement, blue teaming (the search for solutions to known shortcomings). It describes real-world defense systems analysis for both traditional and nontraditional areas, including air defense and ballistic missile defense systems, bioterrorism defense, space warfare, and interplanetary communications. _Perspectives on Defense Systems Analysis_ is a very readable resource for analysts and engineers in industry, government, and research.

    As we move closer to a genuinely global economy, the pressure to develop highly reliable products on ever-tighter schedules will increase. Part of a designer's "toolbox" for achieving product reliability in a compressed time frame should be a set of best practices for utilizing accelerated stress testing (AST). _The Accelerated Stress Testing Handbook_ delineates a core set of AST practices as part of an overall methodology for enhancing hardware product reliability. The techniques presented will teach readers to identify design deficiencies and problems with component quality or manufacturing processes early in the product's life, and then to take corrective action as quickly as possible. A wide array of case studies gleaned from leading practitioners of AST supplement the theory and methodology, which will provide the reader with a more concrete idea of how AST truly enhances quality in a reduced time frame. Important topics covered include: * Theoretical basi for AST * General AST best practices * AST design and manufacturing processes * AST equipment and techniques * AST process safety qualification In this handbook, AST cases studies demonstrate thermal, vibration, electrical, and liquid stress application; failure mode analysis; and corrective action techniques. Individuals who would be interested in this book include: reliability engineers and researchers, mechanical and electrical engineers, those involved with all facets of electronics and telecommunications product design and manufacturing, and people responsible for implementing quality and process improvement programs.

  • Connecting the Dots

    Part I of this book considered the resource facing service impairments introduced by virtualization and cloud that risk degrading the customer facing service offered by cloud-based applications. Part II analyzed those risks, and Part III offered recommendations to mitigate the end user service impact of those risks. This chapter summarizes the key points from these three parts. It discusses application service quality challenge, four redundancy models, and designs for scalability, extensibility, and failure. The chapter elucidates the actions recommended to assure the feasibility and likelihood of cloud- based applications consistently achieving their service quality expectations. A section considers the challenge of taking an existing or traditional application that is successfully deployed on native hardware configurations to cloud while continuing to deliver at least comparable service quality to end users. This book methodically delineates and analyzes the risks, and offers concrete recommendations to enable applications deployed to cloud to deliver service quality.

  • Developing Elastic Software for the Cloud

    Cloud computing provides great opportunities for application developers to create scalable and elastic applications in a cost-efficient manner. More specifically, well designed cloud computing services offer not only scalability and elasticity but also fault tolerance, data locality, load balancing, and pricing models associated with various QoS policies. As cloud providers take care of these non-functional concerns, the application developers can focus on the functional aspects of their applications and benefit from the power of cloud computing. From the application developer's perspective, programming models and frameworks to develop cloud applications largely depend on the layered architecture of the cloud-computing paradigm, i.e., whether the application is to be deployed on IaaS (infrastructure as a service) or PaaS (platform as a service) clouds. In this chapter, we describe Google App Engine as an example of a PaaS programming framework beside MapReduce and SALSA (Simple Actor Language System and Architecture) as examples of distributed computing frameworks available on PaaS and IaaS. To give concrete usage examples of these frameworks, we show a data analytics application using MapReduce, a Web application using Google App Engine, and a distributed computing application using SALSA respectively

  • Online Classification for Complex Problems Using Simultaneous Projections

    We describe and analyze an algorithmic framework for online classification where each online trial consists of multiple prediction tasks that are tied together. We tackle the problem of updating the online hypothesis by defining a projection problem in which each prediction task corresponds to a single linear constraint. These constraints are tied together through a single slack parameter. We then introduce a general method for approximately solving the problem by projecting simultaneously and independently on each constraint which corresponds to a prediction sub-problem, and then averaging the individual solutions. We show that this approach constitutes a feasible, albeit not necessarily optimal, solution for the original projection problem. We derive concrete simultaneous projection schemes and analyze them in the mistake bound model. We demonstrate the power of the proposed algorithm in experiments with online multiclass text categorization. Our experiments indicate that a combination of class-dependent features with the simultaneous projection method outperforms previously studied algorithms.

  • Epilogue: Conceptual Tactics

    In this challenging but exhilarating work, Sha Xin Wei argues for an approach to materiality inspired by continuous mathematics and process philosophy. Investigating the implications of such an approach to media and matter in the concrete setting of installation- or event-based art and technology, Sha maps a genealogy of topological media -- that is, of an articulation of continuous matter that relinquishes a priori objects, subjects, and egos and yet constitutes value and novelty. Doing so, he explores the ethico-aesthetic consequences of topologically creating performative events and computational media. Sha's interdisciplinary investigation is informed by thinkers ranging from Heraclitus to Alfred North Whitehead to Gilbert Simondon to Alain Badiou to Donna Haraway to Gilles Deleuze and F¿¿lix Guattari.Sha traces the critical turn from representation to performance, citing a series of installation- events envisioned and built over the past decade. His analysis offers a fresh way to conceive and articulate interactive materials of new media, one inspired by continuity, field, and philosophy of process. Sha explores the implications of this for philosophy and social studies of technology and science relevant to the creation of research and art. Weaving together philosophy, aesthetics, critical theory, mathematics, and media studies, he shows how thinking about the world in terms of continuity and process can be informed by computational technologies, and what such thinking implies for emerging art and technology.

  • Can Machines Have Neuroses?

    The Turing Test is part of the vocabulary of popular culture -- it has appeared in works ranging from the Broadway play "Breaking the Code" to the comic strip "Robotman." The writings collected by Stuart Shieber for this book examine the profound philosophical issues surrounding the Turing Test as a criterion for intelligence. Alan Turing's idea, originally expressed in a 1950 paper titled "Computing Machinery and Intelligence" and published in the journal Mind, proposed an "indistinguishability test" that compared artifact and person. Following Descartes's dictum that it is the ability to speak that distinguishes human from beast, Turing proposed to test whether machine and person were indistinguishable in regard to verbal ability. He was not, as is often assumed, answering the question "Can machines think?" but proposing a more concrete way to ask it. Turing's proposed thought experiment encapsulates the issues that the writings in The Turing Test define and discuss.The first section of the book contains writings by philosophical precursors, including Descartes, who first proposed the idea of indistinguishablity tests. The second section contains all of Turing's writings on the Turing Test, including not only the Mind paper but also less familiar ephemeral material. The final section opens with responses to Turing's paper published in Mind soon after it first appeared. The bulk of this section, however, consists of papers from a broad spectrum of scholars in the field that directly address the issue of the Turing Test as a test for intelligence. Contributors include John R. Searle, Ned Block, Daniel C. Dennett, and Noam Chomsky (in a previously unpublished paper). Each chapter is introduced by background material that can also be read as a self-con tained essay on the Turing Test.
