Machine learning is the computational study of algorithms that improve performance based on experience, and this book covers the basic issues of artificial intelligence. Individual sections introduce the basic concepts and problems in machine learning, describe algorithms, discuss adaptions of the learning methods to more complex problem-solving tasks and much more.
Children are one of the largest new user groups of mobile technology -- from phones to micro-laptops to electronic toys. These products are both lauded and criticized, especially when it comes to their role in education and learning. The need has never been greater to understand how these technologies are being designed and to evaluate their impact worldwide. Mobile Technology for Children brings together contributions from leaders in industry, non-profit organizations, and academia to offer practical solutions for the design and the future of mobile technology for children. *First book to present a multitude of voices on the design, technology, and impact of mobile devices for children and learning *Features contributions from leading academics, designers, and policy makers from nine countries, whose affiliations include Sesame Workshop, LeapFrog Enterprises, Intel, the United Nations, and UNICEF *Each contribution and case study is followed by a best practice overview to help readers consider their own research and design and for a quick reference
