Strategy, Leadership and AI in the Cyber Ecosystem investigates the restructuring of the way cybersecurity and business leaders engage with the emerging digital revolution towards the development of strategic management, with the aid of AI, and in the context of growing cyber-physical interactions (human/machine co-working relationships). The book explores all aspects of strategic leadership within a digital context. It investigates the interactions from both the firm/organization strategy perspective, including cross-functional actors/stakeholders who are operating within the organization and the various characteristics of operating in a cyber-secure ecosystem. As consumption and reliance by business on the use of vast amounts of data in operations increase, demand for more data governance to minimize the issues of bias, trust, privacy and security may be necessary. The role of management is changing dramatically, with the challenges of Industry 4.0 and the digital revolution. With this intelligence explosion, the influence of artificial intelligence technology and the key themes of machine learning, big data, and digital twin are evolving and creating the need for cyber-physical management professionals. Discusses the foundations of digital societies in information governance and decision-making Explores the role of digital business strategies to deal with big data management, governance and digital footprints Considers advances and challenges in ethical management with data privacy and transparency Investigates the cyber-physical project management professional [Digital Twin] and the role of Holographic technology in corporate decision-making

AI is radically transforming business. Are you ready? Look around you. Artificial intelligence is no longer just a futuristic notion. It's here right now--in software that senses what we need, supply chains that "think" in real time, and robots that respond to changes in their environment. Twenty-first-century pioneer companies are already using AI to innovate and grow fast. The bottom line is this: Businesses that understand how to harness AI can surge ahead. Those that neglect it will fall behind. Which side are you on? In Human + Machine, Accenture leaders Paul R. Daugherty and H. James (Jim) Wilson show that the essence of the AI paradigm shift is the transformation of all business processes within an organization--whether related to breakthrough innovation, everyday customer service, or personal productivity habits. As humans and smart machines collaborate ever more closely, work processes become more fluid and adaptive, enabling companies to change them on the fly--or to completely reimagine them. AI is changing all the rules of how companies operate. Based on the authors' experience and research with 1,500 organizations, the book reveals how companies are using the new rules of AI to leap ahead on innovation and profitability, as well as what you can do to achieve similar results. It describes six entirely new types of hybrid human + machine roles that every company must develop, and it includes a "leader’s guide" with the five crucial principles required to become an AI-fueled business. Human + Machine provides the missing and much-needed management playbook for success in our new age of AI. BOOK PROCEEDS FOR THE AI GENERATION The authors' goal in publishing Human + Machine is to help executives, workers, students and others navigate the changes that AI is making to business and the economy. They believe AI will bring innovations that truly improve the way the world works and lives. However, AI will cause disruption, and many people will need education, training and support to prepare for the newly created jobs. To support this need, the authors are donating the royalties received from the sale of this book to fund education and retraining programs focused on developing fusion skills for the age of artificial intelligence.
Featuring an interdisciplinary, developmental, ecological-systems framework, Human Behavior for Social Work Practice, Third Edition helps students implement a consistent system through which to approach multifaceted social issues in any environment. Students will learn that by effectively connecting theory to practice, they can develop successful strategies to use as they encounter complex issues currently facing social workers, whether it be in inner city schools or rural nursing homes with individuals of different ages, ethnicities, and socioeconomic status. This text examines social work issues at various points in human development using specific programs and policies to illustrate developmentally- and culturally-sensitive social work practice. Excerpts from interviews with practicing social workers highlight real-life experiences and introduce a variety of policy contexts. Part 3 of the text focuses on social work issues affecting individuals across the lifespan and around the globe through chapters on disability and stigmatization; race, racism and resistance; women and gender; and terrorism.
Socially situated planning provides one mechanism for improving the social awareness ofagents. Obviously this work isin the preliminary stages and many of the limitation and the relationship to other work could not be addressed in such a short chapter. The chief limitation, of course, is the strong commitment to de?ning social reasoning solely atthe meta-level, which restricts the subtlety of social behavior. Nonetheless, our experience in some real-world military simulation applications suggest that the approach, even in its preliminary state, is adequate to model some social interactions, and certainly extends the sta- of-the art found in traditional training simulation systems.

The authoritative account of the rise of Amazon and its intensely driven founder, Jeff Bezos, praised by the Seattle Times as "the definitive account of how a tech icon came to life." Amazon.com started off delivering books through the mail. But its visionary founder, Jeff Bezos, wasn't content with being a bookseller. He wanted Amazon to become the everything store, offering limitless selection and seductive convenience at disruptively low prices. To do so, he developed a corporate culture of relentless ambition and secrecy that's never been cracked. Until now. Brad Stone enjoyed unprecedented access to current and former Amazon employees and Bezos family members, giving readers the first in-depth, fly-on-the-wall account of life at Amazon. Compared to tech's other elite innovators -- Jobs, Gates, Zuckerberg -- Bezos is a private man. But he stands out for his restless pursuit of new markets, leading Amazon into risky new ventures like the Kindle and cloud computing, and transforming retail in the same way Henry Ford revolutionized manufacturing. The Everything Store is the revealing, definitive biography of the company that placed one of the first and largest bets on the Internet and forever changed the way we shop and read.
This comprehensive summary of the state of the art and the ideas behind the reaction engineering approach (REA) to drying processes is an ideal resource for researchers, academics and industry practitioners. Starting with the formulation, modelling and applications of the lumped-REA, it goes on to detail the use of the REA to describe local evaporation and condensation, and its coupling with equations of conservation of heat and mass transfer, called the spatial-REA, to model non-equilibrium multiphase drying. Finally, it summarises other established drying models, discussing their features, limitations and comparisons with the REA. Application examples featured throughout help fine-tune the models and implement them for process design and the evaluation of existing drying processes and product quality during drying. Further uses of the principles of REA are demonstrated, including computational fluid dynamics-based modelling, and further expanded to model other simultaneous heat and mass transfer processes.
In today’s society, where technology is ubiquitous, protecting ourselves with firewalls is as important as defending ourselves with firepower. New technology is providing criminals with a world of opportunity, while law enforcement agencies all over the world are struggling to cope. E-security is an issue of global importance. In many ways, cybercrime is no different to more traditional types of crime – both involve identifying targets, using surveillance and psychological profiling of potential victims. The major difference is that the perpetrators of cybercrime are increasingly remote to the scene of their crime and that in some cases their victims may not even realize that a crime is taking place. Knowledge of the techniques being used by criminals and the technology and tra- ing available to combat them is essential in fighting cybercrime. Establishing dialogue between crime-fighting agencies, the security industry, researchers and experts can provide a platform from which e-security can be examined from several global p- spectives.
