Author: Klaus Hermann Maier-Hein, geb. Fritzsche, Thomas Martin Deserno, geb. Lehmann, Heinz Handels, Thomas Tolxdorff
In den letzten Jahren hat sich der Workshop "Bildverarbeitung für die Medizin" durch erfolgreiche Veranstaltungen etabliert. Ziel ist auch 2017 wieder die Darstellung aktueller Forschungsergebnisse und die Vertiefung der Gespräche zwischen Wissenschaftlern, Industrie und Anwendern. Die Beiträge dieses Bandes - einige davon in englischer Sprache - umfassen alle Bereiche der medizinischen Bildverarbeitung, insbesondere Bildgebung und -akquisition, Maschinelles Lernen, Bildsegmentierung und Bildanalyse, Visualisierung und Animation, Zeitreihenanalyse, Computerunterstützte Diagnose, Biomechanische Modellierung, Validierung und Qualitätssicherung, Bildverarbeitung in der Telemedizin u.v.m.
Seeing Culture Everywhere
Author: Joana Breidenbach, Pál Nyíri
Publisher: University of Washington Press
This engagingly written, jargon-free challenge to the misguided and dangerous global obsession with cultural difference critiques the popular notion that world affairs are determined by civilizations with immutable and conflicting cultures. Culture is too often understood as a straightjacket of values that make people act in a certain way. A more accurate and constructive approach is to see culture as a changing system of meaning, which individuals deploy selectively to make sense of the world.
Unfolding the Napkin
Author: Dan Roam
An original workbook companion to the acclaimed business bestseller The Back of the Napkin Dan Roam's The Back of the Napkin, a BusinessWeek bestseller, taught readers the power of brainstorming and communicating with pictures. It presented a new and exciting way to solve all kinds of problems-from the boardroom to the sales floor to the cubicle jungle. The companion workbook, Unfolding the Napkin, helps readers put Roam's principles into practice with step-by-step guidelines. It's filled with detailed case studies, guided do-it-yourself exercises, and plenty of blank space for drawing. Roam structured the book as a complete four-day visual-thinking seminar, taking readers step-by-step from "I can't draw" to "Here is the picture I drew that I think will save the world." The workbook teaches readers how to: •Improve their three "built-in" visual problem solving tools. •Apply the four-step visual thinking process (look-see-imagine-show) in any business situation. •Instantly improve their visual imaginations. •Learn how to recognize the type of problem to choose the best visual solution. If The Back of the Napkin was a guide to fine dining, Unfolding the Napkin is the cookbook that will soon be heavily marked up and dogeared.
Dieses Buch zeigt auf unterhaltsame Weise auch dem bisher Unerfahrenen, wie eine Präsentation pragmatisch vorbereitet und mit medialer Unterstützung durchgeführt werden kann. Behandelt werden graphische Gestaltung, Lern- und Arbeitstechniken sowie Gesprächsführung und Rhetorik. Berücksichtigt werden dabei Aspekte der Disziplinen Arbeitswissenschaft und Psychologie. Aber auch Kenntnisse wissenschaftlichen Arbeitens, z.B. Quellensuche, Quellenbewertung und Zitieren, sowie statistische Grundkenntnisse gehören zu einer Präsentation, insbesondere in wissenschaftlichen Bereichen. Die Fähigkeit, professionell zu präsentieren, ist nicht nur in der Praxis, sondern auch in der Wissenschaft grundlegend. Der Autor ist überzeugt: Mit dem richtigen Handwerkszeug kann jeder lernen zu präsentieren - und das kann sogar Spaß machen. Die zweite Auflage wurde überarbeitet und erweitert.

Scientific research shows that the most successful negotiators analyze the situation thoroughly, self-monitor wisely, are keenly aware of interpersonal processes during the negotiation – and, crucially, enter negotiations with a fair and cooperative attitude. This book is a clear and compact guide on how to succeed by means of such goal-oriented negotiation and cooperative persuasion. Readers learn models to understand and describe what takes place during negotiations, while numerous figures, charts, and checklists clearly summarize effective strategies for analyzing context, processes, competencies, and the impact of our own behavior. Real-life case examples vividly illustrate the specific measures individuals and teams can take to systematically improve their powers of persuasion and bargaining strength. The book also describes a modern approach to raising negotiation competencies as part of personnel development, making it suitable for use in training courses as well as for anyone who wants to be a more persuasive and successful negotiator.
The Facilitator's Toolkit
Author: Maggie Havergal, John Edmonstone
Maggie Havergal and John Edmonstone's Facilitator's Toolkit provides your organization with a resource on which every manager can draw. The authors explain the basic skills of facilitation, how and when to use them (and not to use them). The main part of the manual then offers a Toolkit of almost 100 tools for facilitation; tools for organizing groups; tools for strategic thinking; tools for problem solving; diagnostic tools; tools for managing people, including other facilitators; tools for decision making; tools for planning; tools for managing conflict and dealing with problems, situations or people.
This book is the result of Dr Lozanov's 25 year research on the science of suggestion. Suggestologists organize and orchestrate unrealized factors associated with human consciousness that allow them to tap human reserve capacities for practical purposes. Most popular in the field of foreign language teaching and learning, suggestopedy (suggestology in pedagogy) accelerates language learning from 5 to 50 times over other conventional methods.
Make Your Own Neural Network
Author: Tariq Rashid
Publisher: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform
A step-by-step gentle journey through the mathematics of neural networks, and making your own using the Python computer language. Neural networks are a key element of deep learning and artificial intelligence, which today is capable of some truly impressive feats. Yet too few really understand how neural networks actually work. This guide will take you on a fun and unhurried journey, starting from very simple ideas, and gradually building up an understanding of how neural networks work. You won't need any mathematics beyond secondary school, and an accessible introduction to calculus is also included. The ambition of this guide is to make neural networks as accessible as possible to as many readers as possible - there are enough texts for advanced readers already! You'll learn to code in Python and make your own neural network, teaching it to recognise human handwritten numbers, and performing as well as professionally developed networks. Part 1 is about ideas. We introduce the mathematical ideas underlying the neural networks, gently with lots of illustrations and examples. Part 2 is practical. We introduce the popular and easy to learn Python programming language, and gradually builds up a neural network which can learn to recognise human handwritten numbers, easily getting it to perform as well as networks made by professionals. Part 3 extends these ideas further. We push the performance of our neural network to an industry leading 98% using only simple ideas and code, test the network on your own handwriting, take a privileged peek inside the mysterious mind of a neural network, and even get it all working on a Raspberry Pi. All the code in this has been tested to work on a Raspberry Pi Zero.
