Mobile Robots: The Evolutionary Approach

Mobile Robots: The Evolutionary Approach by Nadia Nedjah
English | PDF | 2007 | 238 Pages | ISBN : 3540497196 | 11.28 MB

The design and control of autonomous intelligent mobile robotic systems operating in unstructured changing environments includes many objective difficulties. There are several studies about the ways in which, robots exhibiting some degree of autonomy, adapt themselves to fit in their environments.

Comparative Placentation: Structures, Functions and Evolution

Comparative Placentation: Structures, Functions and Evolution by Peter Wooding
English | PDF | 2008 | 304 Pages | ISBN : 3540787968 | 67.43 MB

Science produces fascinating puzzles: why is there such a range of placental structures when other mammalian organs are so structurally uniform ? Why and how did the different placental structures evolve ? Comparative placental studies can facilitate the identification of the common factors in placental growth, differentiation and function and their relevance to possible evolutionary pathways.

Freedom and Evolution: Hierarchy in Nature, Society and Science

Freedom and Evolution: Hierarchy in Nature, Society and Science by Adrian Bejan
English | December 6th, 2019 | ISBN: 3030340082 | 151 pages | EPUB | 23.17 MB

The book begins with familiar designs found all around and inside us (such as the 'trees' of river basins, human lungs, blood and city traffic). It then shows how all flow systems are driven by power from natural engines everywhere, and how they are endlessly shaped because of freedom. Finally, Professor Bejan explains how people, like everything else that moves on earth, are driven by power derived from our "engines" that consume fuel and food, and that our movement dissipates the power completely and changes constantly for greater access, economies of scale, efficiency, innovation and life.

Airliner Models: Marketing Air Travel and Tracing Airliner Evolution Through Vintage Miniatures by Anthony J Lawler
English | October 8th, 2019 | ISBN: 1785006339 | 336 pages | EPUB | 366.01 MB

For most of the past century, beautiful models of airliners have been made to promote their airlines' services in travel agents and their own shops. The models also illustrate the evolution of airliner design over these decades: the wood and fabric biplanes of the 1920s, the broad adoption of all-metal airliners in the 1930s, the first jet airliners of the 1950s, the first wide-body airliners of the 1970s and the pioneering small steps in supersonic air travel are all covered.

Artificial Intelligence: Evolution and Revolution

Artificial Intelligence: Evolution and Revolution by Steven Astorino, Jean-François Puget, Mark Simmonds
English | October 1st, 2019 | ISBN: 1583478922 | 121 pages | EPUB | 1.86 MB

Throughout history, machines have been introduced to society to help automate tasks, improve productivity, and reduce costs. And, in just a few years, computers have evolved from centralized, number-crunching monoliths to separate, miniaturized systems that can be found in billions of interconnected items such as cellphones, wearable devices, automobiles, home appliances, and more.From humble evolutions in research papers and labs, artificial intelligence (AI)—which encompasses Machine Learning (ML) and Deep Learning (DL)—has matured in its many forms, infused in applications that can learn on their own and become progressively smarter with each interaction and transaction.

A World Beyond Physics: The Emergence and Evolution of Life

A World Beyond Physics: The Emergence and Evolution of Life by Stuart A. Kauffman
English | May 1st, 2019 | ISBN: 0190871334 | 168 pages | EPUB | 4.54 MB

How did life start? Is the evolution of life describable by any physics-like laws? Stuart Kauffman's latest book offers an explanation-beyond what the laws of physics can explain-of the progression from a complex chemical environment to molecular reproduction, metabolism and to early protocells, and further evolution to what we recognize as life. Among the estimated one hundred billion solar systems in the known universe, evolving life is surely abundant. That evolution is a process of "becoming" in each case. Since Newton, we have turned to physics to assess reality.

Human Evolution: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions), 2nd Edition

Human Evolution: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions), 2nd Edition by Bernard Wood
English | August 27th, 2019 | ISBN: 0198831749 | 160 pages | EPUB | 1.21 MB

This Very Short Introduction traces the history of paleoanthropology from its beginnings in the eighteenth century to the latest fossil finds. Although concentrating on the fossil evidence for human evolution, it also covers the latest genetic evidence about regional variations in the modern human genome that relate to our evolutionary history. Bernard Wood draws on over thirty years of experience to provide an insider's view of the field and some of the personalities in it, and demonstrates that our understanding of human evolution is critically dependent on advances in related sciences such as paleoclimatology, geochronology, systematics, genetics, and developmental biology.
