Big Data Glossary, 9781449314590 (1449314597), O'Reilly, 2011

To help you navigate the large number of new data tools available, this guide describes 60 of the most recent innovations, from NoSQL databases and MapReduce approaches to machine learning and visualization tools. Descriptions are based on first-hand experience with these tools in a production environment.

This handy glossary also includes a chapter of key terms that help define many of these tool categories:

  • NoSQL Databases—Document-oriented databases using a key/value interface rather than SQL
  • MapReduce—Tools that support distributed computing on large datasets
  • Storage—Technologies for storing data in a distributed way
  • Servers—Ways to rent computing power on remote machines
  • Processing—Tools for extracting valuable information from large datasets
  • Natural Language Processing—Methods for extracting information from human-created text
  • Machine Learning—Tools that automatically perform data analyses, based on results of a one-off analysis
  • Visualization—Applications that present meaningful data graphically
  • Acquisition—Techniques for cleaning up messy public data sources
  • Serialization—Methods to convert data structure or object state into a storable format

Land, Conflict, and Justice: A Political Theory of Territory
Land, Conflict, and Justice: A Political Theory of Territory
'Avery Kolers has written a terrific book on the idea of land and territory in political disputes. This is an incredibly important subject that has been largely ignored in political philosophy and legal theory. Kolers' book is the best writing of its kind: plausibly argued, lucidly written, and richly informed with empirical material. I learned an...

Computability Theory: An Introduction to Recursion Theory
Computability Theory: An Introduction to Recursion Theory

The study of the class of computable partial functions (i.e., recursive partial functions) stands at the intersection of three fields: mathematics, theoretical computer science, and philosophy.

Mathematically, computability theory originates from the concept of an algorithm. It leads to a classification of functions according...

Room Acoustics
Room Acoustics
We all know that a concert hall, theatre, lecture room or a church may have good or poor ‘acoustics’. As far as speech in these rooms is concerned, it is relatively simple to make some sort of judgement on their quality by rating the ease with which the spoken word is understood. However, judging the acoustics of a concert hall or an...
