Modern Day Surveillance Ecosystem and Impacts on Privacy

Ananda Mitra

The notion of surveillance has become increasingly more crucial in public conversation as new tools of observation are obtained by many different players. The traditional notion of "overseeing" is being increasingly replaced by multi-level surveillance where many different actors, at different levels of hierarchy, from the child surveilling the parent to the state surveilling its citizens, are entering the surveillance theater. This creates a unique surveillance ecosystem where the individual is observed not only as an analog flesh-and-blood body moving through real spaces such as a shopping mall, but also tracked as a data point where the volume of data is perpetually and permanently expanding as the digital life story is inscribed in the digital spaces. The combined narrative of the individual is now under surveillance. Modern Day Surveillance Ecosystem and Impacts on Privacy navigates the reader through an understanding of the self as a narrative element that is open for observation and analysis. This book provides a broad-based and theoretically grounded look at the overall processes of surveillance in a global system. Covering topics including commodity, loss of privacy, and big data, this text is essential for researchers, government officials, policymakers, security analysts, lawmakers, teachers, professors, graduate and undergraduate students, practitioners, and academicians interested in communication, technology, surveillance, privacy, and more.

Modeling and Control of Static Converters for Hybrid Storage Systems

Arezki Fekik

The energy transition initiated in recent years has enabled the growing integration of renewable production into the energy mix. Microgrids make it possible to maximize the efficiency of energy transmission from source to consumer by bringing the latter together geographically and by reducing losses linked to transport. However, the lack of inertia and the micro-grid support system makes it weak, and energy storage is necessary to ensure its proper functioning. Current storage technologies do not make it possible to provide both a large capacity of energy and power at the same time. Hybrid storage is a solution that combines the advantages of several technologies and reduces their disadvantages. Modeling and Control of Static Converters for Hybrid Storage Systems covers the modeling, control theorems, and optimization techniques that solve many scientific problems for researchers in the field of power converter control for renewable energy hybrid storage and places particular emphasis on the modeling and control of static converters for hybrid storage systems. Covering topics ranging from energy storage to power generation, this book is ideal for automation engineers, electrical engineers, mechanical engineers, professionals, scientists, academicians, master's and doctoral students, and researchers in the disciplines of electrical and mechanical engineering.

Unleaded

Carrie Nielsen

Combining environmental history, sociology, and neuroscience, Carrie Nielsen tells the story of how crusading scientists and activists convinced the U.S. government to ban lead additives in leaded gasoline, explores how lead exposure affects the developing brains of children, and reveals how many poor communities and minority communities of color still have face dangerously high lead levels of exposure to lead.

Next-Generation Applications and Implementations of Gamification Systems

Filipe Portela

Gamification is being used everywhere; despite its apparent plethora of benefits, the unbalanced use of its main mechanics can end up in catastrophic results for a company or institution. Currently, there is a lack of knowledge of what it is, leading to its unregulated and ad hoc use without any prior planning. This unbalanced use prejudices the achievement of the initial goals and impairs the user's evolution, bringing potential negative reflections. Currently, there are few specifications and modeling languages that allow the creation of a system of rules to serve as the basis for a gamification engine. Consequently, programmers implement gamification in a variety of ways, undermining any attempt at reuse and negatively affecting interoperability. Next-Generation Applications and Implementations of Gamification Systems synthesizes all the trends, best practices, methodologies, languages, and tools that are used to implement gamification. It also discusses how to put gamification in action by linking academic and informatics researchers with professionals who use gamification in their daily work to disseminate and exchange the knowledge, information, and technology provided by the international communities in the area of gamification throughout the 21st century. Covering topics such as applied and cloud gamification, chatbots, deep learning, and certifications and frameworks, this book is ideal for programmers, computer scientists, software engineers, practitioners of technological companies, managers, academicians, researchers, and students.
