The Knowledge Grid is an intelligent and sustainable interconnection environment that consists of autonomous individuals, self-organized semantic communities, adaptive networking mechanisms, evolving semantic link networks keeping meaningful connection between individuals, flows for dynamic resource sharing, and mechanisms supporting effective resource management and providing appropriate knowledge services for learning, innovation, teamwork, problem solving, and decision making. This book presents its methodology, theory, models and applications systematically for the first time. Its second edition fulfills the ideal of the Knowledge Grid by increasing many up-to-date new contents, including: the systematic method of semantic link network that supports uncertainty management, discovery of semantic links and semantic communities, and autonomous semantic data model; semantic peer-to-peer infrastructures for efficient knowledge sharing; and, a new centrality measure of network and its application in e-science. This new edition will undoubtedly provide refreshing materials for researchers, academics, practitioners and students.

I am not a recruiter. I am a software engineer. And as such, I know what it's like to be asked to whip up brilliant algorithms on the spot and then write flawless code on a whiteboard. I've been through this as a candidate and as an interviewer.
Cracking the Coding Interview, 6th Edition is here to help you through this process, teaching you what you need to know and enabling you to perform at your very best. I've coached and interviewed hundreds of software engineers. The result is this book.

Aimed at both the novice and expert in IT security and industrial control systems (ICS), this book will help readers gain a better understanding of protecting ICSs from electronic threats. Cyber security is getting much more attention and 'SCADA security' (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) is a particularly important part of this field, as are Distributed Control Systems (DCS), Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), Remote Terminal Units (RTUs), Intelligent Electronic Devices (IEDs)-and all the other, field controllers, sensors, and drives, emission controls, and that make up the 'intelligence' of modern industrial buildings and facilities. This book will help the reader better understand what is industrial control system cyber security, why is it different than IT security, what has really happened to date, and what needs to be done. Loads of practical advice is offered on everything from clarity on current cyber-security systems and how they can be integrated into general IT systems, to how to conduct risk assessments and how to obtain certifications, to future trends in legislative and regulatory issues affecting industrial security.
