Workload Modeling for Computer Systems Performance Evaluation

by Dror G. Feitelson

Reliable performance evaluations require the use of representative workloads. This is no easy task since modern computer systems and their workloads are complex, with many interrelated attributes and complicated structures. Experts often use sophisticated mathematics to analyze and describe workload models, making these models difficult for practitioners to grasp. This book aims to close this gap by emphasizing the intuition and the reasoning behind the definitions and derivations related to the workload models. It provides numerous examples from real production systems, with hundreds of graphs. Using this book, readers will be able to analyze collected workload data and clean it if necessary, derive statistical models that include skewed marginal distributions and correlations, and consider the need for generative models and feedback from the system. The descriptive statistics techniques covered are also useful for other domains.

The Workplace of the Future: The Fourth Industrial Revolution, the Precariat and the Death of Hierarchies (Routledge Studies in the Economics of Innovation)

by Jon-Arild Johannessen

The Fourth Industrial Revolution is a global development that shows no signs of slowing down. In his book, The Workplace of the Future: The Fourth Industrial Revolution, the Precariat and the Death of Hierarchies, Jon-Arild Johannessen sets a chilling vision of how robots and artificial intelligence will completely disrupt and transform working life. The author contests that once the dust has settled from the Fourth Industrial Revolution, workplaces and professions will be unrecognizable and we will see the rise of a new social class: the precariat. We will live side by side with the 'working poor' – people who have several jobs, but still can’t make ends meet. There will be a small salaried elite consisting of innovation and knowledge workers. Slightly further into the future, there will be a major transformation in professional environments. Johannessen also presents a typology for the precariat, the uncertain work that is created and develops a framework for the working poor, as well as for future innovation and knowledge workers, and sets out a new structure for the social hierarchy. A fascinating and thought-provoking insight into the impact of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, The Workplace of the Future will be of interest to professionals and academics alike. The book is particularly suited to academic courses in management, economy, political science and social sciences.

World 2.0: From Working for Others to Working for Yourself (SpringerBriefs in Applied Sciences and Technology)

by Shuichi Fukuda

This book explores on how the Internet of Things (IoT) will change society by bringing living and non-living things together. The IoT is currently attracting considerable attention, but most of the discussions focus on engineering aspects alone. The IoT, however, is not an extension of traditional engineering, where humans and machines are separated. Instead it connects humans and machines, enabling them to work together as a team: the IoT Connected Society.In traditional engineering, our knowledge and experience of physical and non-living things plays a key role, but such knowledge and experience alone are not enough. We need to introduce life science approaches and integrate them into physical science to really develop the IoT connected society.In addition, the Internet is not only a tool for delivering messages: it is a broader communication tool. In the IoT connected society, living things and non-living things communicate in complex ways. Machines 1. Introduction2. Emerging Industrial Revolution3. IoT: What makes it different from the past revolutions4. World is changing5. Engineering: How It was developed so far6. Humans: Their characteristics7. Value is changing8. Adaptive team organization and management9. Integration of Physical Science and Life Science10. Summary can provide humans with a improved situational awareness and advice, and together they can communicate to develop a better, happier society. Thus, this book makes the case that to make the IoT connected society a reality, we need to integrate the physical and life sciences and develop a new science for the next generation of engineering.

World City Network: A Global Urban Analysis

by Peter J. Taylor Ben Derudder

With the advent of multinational corporations, the traditional urban service function has 'gone global'. In order to provide services to globalizing corporate clients, the offices of major financial and business service firms across the world have formed a network. It is the myriad of flows between office towers in different metropolitan centres that has produced a world city network. Through an analysis of the intra-company flows of 100 leading global service firms across 315 cities, this book assesses cities in terms of their overall network connectivity, their connectivity by service sector, and their connectivity by world region. Peter Taylor's unique and illuminating book provides the first comprehensive and systematic description and analysis of the world city network as the 'skeleton' upon which contemporary globalization has been built. His analyses challenge the traditional view of the world as a 'mosaic map' of political boundaries. Written by one of the foremost authorities on the subject, this book provides a much needed mapping of the connecting relationships between world cities, and will be an enlightening book for students of urban studies, geography, sociology and planning.

by Peter J. Taylor Ben Derudder

With the advent of multinational corporations, the traditional urban service function has 'gone global'. In order to provide services to globalizing corporate clients, the offices of major financial and business service firms across the world have generated networks of work. It is the myriad of flows between office towers in different metropolitan centres that has produced a world city network. Taylor and Derudder's unique and illuminating book provides both an update and a substantial revision of the first edition that was published in 2004. It provides a comprehensive and systematic description and analysis of the world city network as the 'skeleton' upon which contemporary globalization has been built. Through an analysis of the intra-company flows of 175 leading global service firms across 526 cities in 2012, this book assesses cities in terms of their overall network connectivity, the regional configurations they form, and their changing position in the period 2000-12. Results are used to reflect on cities and city/state relations in the context of the global ecological and economic crisis. Written by two of the foremost authorities on the subject, this book provides a much-needed mapping of the connecting relationships between world cities, and will be a valuable resource for students of urban studies, geography, sociology and planning.

A World Gone Social: How Companies Must Adapt to Survive

by Ted Coiné Mark Babbitt

The Social Revolution's impact on the business world cannot be over-estimated. Like the meteor that likely precipitated the end of the dinosaurs, Social is the catalyst in an extinction event--and business as we know it has changed forever. A World Gone Social offers an eye-opening look at fundamental and powerful changes the social collaboration era has set in motion: Customers now have the power--just watch what happens as more realize it! With increased transparency, businesses must be more ethical--no more pretending Command-and-control leadership is now so inefficient, it is a liability Nimble and small is the new competitive advantage--few corporations are capable of the agility required by evolving marketplaces Recruiting is now a two-way proposition, with job seekers able to peer behind the corporate curtain Relationship and community-building is how customers and brand ambassadors are won--and retained Engagement--with partners, employees, and customers--is not a luxury; it is a requirement. Each chapter provides compelling stories and concrete examples of companies demonstrating enlightened business practices and doing Social right--and some that are not--and the lessons to be learned from their experiences. Finally, readers will discover how to objectively assess the fit ness of their own company's culture and social presence. . . so they may successfully transition from a 20th- to a 21st-century "social" organization.

The World is Flat: A Brief History of the Twenty-first Century

by Thomas L. Friedman

When scholars write the history of the world twenty years from now and they come to the chapter "Y2K to March 2004", what will they say was the most critical development? The attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on 9/11 and the Iraq War? Or the convergence of technology and the events that allowed India and China and so many other countries to become part of the global supply chain for services and manufacturing. And with this flattening of the globe,which requires us to run faster in order to stay in place, has the world gotten too small and too fast for human beings and their political systems to adjust in a stable manner.

The World Made Meme: Public Conversations and Participatory Media

by Ryan M. Milner

Internet memes -- digital snippets that can make a joke, make a point, or make a connection -- are now a lingua franca of online life. They are collectively created, circulated, and transformed by countless users across vast networks. Most of us have seen the cat playing the piano, Kanye interrupting, Kanye interrupting the cat playing the piano. In The World Made Meme, Ryan Milner argues that memes, and the memetic process, are shaping public conversation. It's hard to imagine a major pop cultural or political moment that doesn't generate a constellation of memetic texts. Memetic media, Milner writes, offer participation by reappropriation, balancing the familiar and the foreign as new iterations intertwine with established ideas. New commentary is crafted by the mediated circulation and transformation of old ideas. Through memetic media, small strands weave together big conversations. Milner considers the formal and social dimensions of memetic media, and outlines five basic logics that structure them: multimodality, reappropriation, resonance, collectivism, and spread. He examines how memetic media both empower and exclude during public conversations, exploring the potential for public voice despite everyday antagonisms. Milner argues that memetic media enable the participation of many voices even in the midst of persistent inequality. This new kind of participatory conversation, he contends, complicates the traditional culture industries. When age-old gatekeepers intertwine with new ways of sharing information, the relationship between collective participation and individual expression becomes ambivalent. For better or worse -- and Milner offers examples of both -- memetic media have changed the nature of public conversations.

The World of Emotions

by Osho International Foundation Osho

The World of Emotions: A unique set of tools for everybody who is interested in improving human relations, and a great help in understanding where we are all coming from and what makes us tick. Full of simple, practical suggestions for creating a milieu of friendliness around yourself that is honest, sincere, and accepting of all our human frailties. One of the greatest challenges we face in life is learning how to handle and transform emotions. In this small book, Osho takes the reader step by step toward a deeper understanding of the inner world of emotions - where they come from, what types of situations can trigger them, and why they so often take us by surprise. We are taught that anger is bad, and we resolve not to be angry - but still it happens! Why is that? The first step in understanding is to identify and become aware of the conflicts between our intellectual understandings and the emotional realities that so often dominate our lives, between what we think and what we what we feel. Once the roots of this conflict are clearly seen and understood, the split can be healed. And the powerful life

A World of Fiction: Digital Collections and the Future of Literary History (Digital Humanities)

by Katherine Bode

During the 19th century, throughout the Anglophone world, most fiction was first published in periodicals. In Australia, newspapers were not only the main source of periodical fiction, but the main source of fiction in general. Because of their importance as fiction publishers, and because they provided Australian readers with access to stories from around the world—from Britain, America and Australia, as well as Austria, Canada, France, Germany, New Zealand, Russia, South Africa, and beyond—Australian newspapers represent an important record of the transnational circulation and reception of fiction in this period. Investigating almost 10,000 works of fiction in the world’s largest collection of mass-digitized historical newspapers (the National Library of Australia’s Trove database), A World of Fiction reconceptualizes how fiction traveled globally, and was received and understood locally, in the 19th century. Katherine Bode’s innovative approach to the new digital collections that are transforming research in the humanities are a model of how digital tools can transform how we understand digital collections and interpret literatures in the past.
