Close to the Machine: Technophilia and Its Discontents by Ellen Ullman
English | February 28th, 2012 | ASIN: B007FU83DY, ISBN: 0872863379, 1250002486 | 210 Pages | EPUB | 0.28 MB
In 1997, the computer was still a relatively new tool--a sleek and unforgiving machine that was beyond the grasp of most users. With intimate and unflinching detail, software engineer Ellen Ullman examines the strange ecstasy of being at the forefront of the predominantly male technological revolution, and the difficulty of translating the inherent messiness of human life into artful and efficient code. Close to the Machine is an elegant and revelatory mediation on the dawn of the digital era.

Empathy, Sociality, and Personhood: Essays on Edith Stein's Phenomenological Investigations By Elisa Magrì
English | PDF,EPUB | 2017 | 215 Pages | ISBN : 3319710958 | 2.86 MB

This book explores the phenomenological investigations of Edith Stein by critically contextualising her role within the phenomenological movement and assessing her accounts of empathy, sociality, and personhood.
Despite the growing interest that surrounds contemporary research on empathy, Edith Stein's phenomenological investigations have been largely neglected due to a historical tradition that tends to consider her either as Husserl's assistant or as a martyr. However, in her phenomenological research, Edith Stein pursued critically the relation between phenomenology and psychology, focusing on the relation between affectivity, subjectivity, and personhood. Alongside phenomenologists like Max Scheler, Kurt Stavenhagen, and Hedwig Conrad-Martius, Stein developed Husserl's method, incorporating several original modifications that are relevant for philosophy, phenomenology, and ethics.

Visual Quality Assessment for Natural and Medical Image

Visual Quality Assessment for Natural and Medical Image By Yong Ding
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 278 Pages | ISBN : 3662564955 | 13.7 MB
Image quality assessment (IQA) is an essential technique in the design of modern, large-scale image and video processing systems. This book introduces and discusses in detail topics related to IQA, including the basic principles of subjective and objective experiments, biological evidence for image quality perception, and recent research developments. In line with recent trends in imaging techniques and to explain the application-specific utilization, it particularly focuses on IQA for stereoscopic (3D) images and medical images, rather than on planar (2D) natural images. In addition, a wealth of vivid, specific figures and formulas help readers deepen their understanding of fundamental and new applications for image quality assessment technology.
