Data Centric Safety Book Review:

Data-Centric Safety presents core concepts and principles of system safety management, and then guides the reader through the application of these techniques and measures to Data-Centric Systems (DCS). The authors have compiled their decades of experience in industry and academia to provide guidance on the management of safety risk. Data Safety has become increasingly important as many solutions depend on data for their correct and safe operation and assurance. The book’s content covers the definition and use of data. It recognises that data is frequently used as the basis of operational decisions and that DCS are often used to reduce user oversight. This data is often invisible, hidden. DCS analysis is based on a Data Safety Model (DSM). The DSM provides the basis for a toolkit leading to improvement recommendations. It also discusses operation and oversight of DCS and the organisations that use them. The content covers incident management, providing an outline for incident response. Incident investigation is explored to address evidence collection and management. Current standards do not adequately address how to manage data (and the errors it may contain) and this leads to incidents, possibly loss of life. The DSM toolset is based on Interface Agreements to create soft boundaries to help engineers facilitate proportionate analysis, rationalisation and management of data safety. Data-Centric Safety is ideal for engineers who are working in the field of data safety management. This book will help developers and safety engineers to: Determine what data can be used in safety systems, and what it can be used for Verify that the data being used is appropriate and has the right characteristics, illustrated through a set of application areas Engineer their systems to ensure they are robust to data errors and failures

Engineering Web Applications Book Review:

Nowadays, Web applications are almost omnipresent. The Web has become a platform not only for information delivery, but also for eCommerce systems, social networks, mobile services, and distributed learning environments. Engineering Web applications involves many intrinsic challenges due to their distributed nature, content orientation, and the requirement to make them available to a wide spectrum of users who are unknown in advance. The authors discuss these challenges in the context of well-established engineering processes, covering the whole product lifecycle from requirements engineering through design and implementation to deployment and maintenance. They stress the importance of models in Web application development, and they compare well-known Web-specific development processes like WebML, WSDM and OOHDM to traditional software development approaches like the waterfall model and the spiral model. .

Data Centric Biology Book Review:

In recent decades, there has been a major shift in the way researchers process and understand scientific data. Digital access to data has revolutionized ways of doing science in the biological and biomedical fields, leading to a data-intensive approach to research that uses innovative methods to produce, store, distribute, and interpret huge amounts of data. In Data-Centric Biology, Sabina Leonelli probes the implications of these advancements and confronts the questions they pose. Are we witnessing the rise of an entirely new scientific epistemology? If so, how does that alter the way we study and understand life—including ourselves? Leonelli is the first scholar to use a study of contemporary data-intensive science to provide a philosophical analysis of the epistemology of data. In analyzing the rise, internal dynamics, and potential impact of data-centric biology, she draws on scholarship across diverse fields of science and the humanities—as well as her own original empirical material—to pinpoint the conditions under which digitally available data can further our understanding of life. Bridging the divide between historians, sociologists, and philosophers of science, Data-Centric Biology offers a nuanced account of an issue that is of fundamental importance to our understanding of contemporary scientific practices.

The Data Centric Revolution Book Review:

Shift from application-centric to data-centric to enable your organization to develop more efficient and successful Enterprise Information Systems. This book is the first part of a trilogy to follow Software Wasteland. In Software Wasteland, we detailed the current poor state of application software development. We offered some tactical advice for reducing some of the worse of the excess. This is the first book in the what to do instead trilogy. Even if the thought of data modeling makes you cringe, Dave McCombs latest book makes the case that it is a necessary exercise for the data-driven organization. The Data-Centric Revolution shows how to be data-driven in an extensible, flexible way that is baked-into organizational culture, rather than taking a typical project-by-project approach. The book is a fun, insightful and meaty read, well-illustrated, and with endless wonderful examples. Doug Laney, Principal, Data & Analytics Strategy, Caserta, and author of the best-seller, Infonomics: How to Monetize, Manage, and Measure Information for Competitive Advantage Dave McComb has laid out a roadmap to travel the exciting path towards data centricity. Daves passion for semantic modeling is contagious and his expert advice will give you the motivation to rethink application development and the direction needed to deliver value in your organization with linked data. Nic Seyot, Executive Director, Information Management at a major investment bank. In his new book, Dave teaches us why most of the stack we''ve spent decades trying to maintain is just a big, unmanageable pile of duplicative, inflexible code. He shows us how to collapse the stack and blend the logic and data each business needs to thrive, in one contextually rich, machine readable, dynamic, smart data layer. The bloated app and process layers of the stack go away, leaving a thin execution layer calling on the power of the smart data underneath. After Software Wasteland explained the problem, The Data-Centric Revolution articulates the solution. Alan Morrison, Sr. Research Fellow, New Services and Emerging Tech, PwC. From the age of punched cards to todays internet-driven systems, one thing has stayed fairly constant: software vendors and their implementers have been driving the Enterprise IT industry. This is changing. It will be hard to see initially, but its already happening in some more prescient organizations. As organizations realize they can take control of their own destiny by adopting data-centric principles, they will see their dependency on application software wither. The cost of running internal information systems will drop at least ten-fold, and the cost of integrating them will drop even more rapidly. This will decimate the $400 billion/ year application software industry and the $400 billion/year systems integration industry. The benefit will accrue to the buyers, and will accrue earliest to the first movers. The trajectory of this book is as follows: Chapters 1 through 3 lay the data-centric foundation. Chapter 1 introduces the data-centric movement and the prerequisites that must be in place for success (including roles and responsibilities). Chapter 2 defines data-centric and explores a data-centric vision and approaches. Chapter 3 covers the management requirements in achieving a data-centric paradigm shift and reveals the new modeling discipline and delivery architecture. Chapters 4 through 6 explain the data-centric approach and its rewards. Chapter 4 summarizes why the data-centric approach will save incredible amounts of time and money. Chapter 5 explores various data centric approaches, and the underlying themes of flexibility and simplicity. Chapter 6 broadens the discussion of paradigm shifts and also discusses who will help you lead this data-centric approach. Chapters 7 through 10 discuss case studies and ways of organizing data. Chapters 7 and 10 discuss several case studies that have taken the data-centric approach. Chapter 8 explains linked data and semantic technologies, and Chapter 9 ontologies and knowledge graphs. Chapters 11 through 13 dig deeper into the pitfalls of the application-centric mindset and the benefits of the data-centric mindset. Chapter 11 gets to the root of the application-centric mindset: application software. Chapter 12 reveals the benefits of code reduction and Chapter 13 the benefits of the model-driven approach. Chapters 14 through 18 explain how to implement the data-centric paradigm. Chapter 14 explains how new technologies fit in with the data-centric approach. Chapters 15 and 16 cover how to get started. Chapter 17 explains the important role of governance in the data-centric approach. Chapter 18 summarizes the key takeaways.

Semantic Search over the Web Book Review:

The Web has become the world’s largest database, with search being the main tool that allows organizations and individuals to exploit its huge amount of information. Search on the Web has been traditionally based on textual and structural similarities, ignoring to a large degree the semantic dimension, i.e., understanding the meaning of the query and of the document content. Combining search and semantics gives birth to the idea of semantic search. Traditional search engines have already advertised some semantic dimensions. Some of them, for instance, can enhance their generated result sets with documents that are semantically related to the query terms even though they may not include these terms. Nevertheless, the exploitation of the semantic search has not yet reached its full potential. In this book, Roberto De Virgilio, Francesco Guerra and Yannis Velegrakis present an extensive overview of the work done in Semantic Search and other related areas. They explore different technologies and solutions in depth, making their collection a valuable and stimulating reading for both academic and industrial researchers. The book is divided into three parts. The first introduces the readers to the basic notions of the Web of Data. It describes the different kinds of data that exist, their topology, and their storing and indexing techniques. The second part is dedicated to Web Search. It presents different types of search, like the exploratory or the path-oriented, alongside methods for their efficient and effective implementation. Other related topics included in this part are the use of uncertainty in query answering, the exploitation of ontologies, and the use of semantics in mashup design and operation. The focus of the third part is on linked data, and more specifically, on applying ideas originating in recommender systems on linked data management, and on techniques for the efficiently querying answering on linked data.

Web Information Retrieval Book Review:

With the proliferation of huge amounts of (heterogeneous) data on the Web, the importance of information retrieval (IR) has grown considerably over the last few years. Big players in the computer industry, such as Google, Microsoft and Yahoo!, are the primary contributors of technology for fast access to Web-based information; and searching capabilities are now integrated into most information systems, ranging from business management software and customer relationship systems to social networks and mobile phone applications. Ceri and his co-authors aim at taking their readers from the foundations of modern information retrieval to the most advanced challenges of Web IR. To this end, their book is divided into three parts. The first part addresses the principles of IR and provides a systematic and compact description of basic information retrieval techniques (including binary, vector space and probabilistic models as well as natural language search processing) before focusing on its application to the Web. Part two addresses the foundational aspects of Web IR by discussing the general architecture of search engines (with a focus on the crawling and indexing processes), describing link analysis methods (specifically Page Rank and HITS), addressing recommendation and diversification, and finally presenting advertising in search (the main source of revenues for search engines). The third and final part describes advanced aspects of Web search, each chapter providing a self-contained, up-to-date survey on current Web research directions. Topics in this part include meta-search and multi-domain search, semantic search, search in the context of multimedia data, and crowd search. The book is ideally suited to courses on information retrieval, as it covers all Web-independent foundational aspects. Its presentation is self-contained and does not require prior background knowledge. It can also be used in the context of classic courses on data management, allowing the instructor to cover both structured and unstructured data in various formats. Its classroom use is facilitated by a set of slides, which can be downloaded from www.search-computing.org.
