Название: Modern Data Mining Algorithms in C++ and CUDA C: Recent Developments in Feature Extraction and Selection Algorithms for Data Science Автор: Timothy Masters Издательство: Apress Год: 2020 Формат: true pdf/epub/mobi Страниц: 237 Размер: 10.4 Mb Язык: English
Discover a variety of data-mining algorithms that are useful for selecting small sets of important features from among unwieldy masses of candidates, or extracting useful features from measured variables. As a serious data miner you will often be faced with thousands of candidate features for your prediction or classification application, with most of the features being of little or no value. You’ll know that many of these features may be useful only in combination with certain other features while being practically worthless alone or in combination with most others. Some features may have enormous predictive power, but only within a small, specialized area of the feature space. The problems that plague modern data miners are endless. This book helps you solve this problem by presenting modern feature selection techniques and the code to implement them.

Название: VR Developer Gems Автор: William R. Sherman (Editor) Издательство: A K Peters/CRC Press Год: 2019 Формат: True PDF Страниц: 694 Размер: 23.5 Mb Язык: English
This book takes the practicality of other "Gems" series such as "Graphics Gems" and "Game Programming Gems" and provide a quick reference for novice and expert programmers alike to swiftly track down a solution to a task needed for their VR project. Reading the book from cover to cover is not the expected use case, but being familiar with the territory from the Introduction and then jumping to the needed explanations is how the book will mostly be used. Each chapter (other than Introduction) will contain between 5 to 10 "tips", each of which is a self-contained explanation with implementation detail generally demonstrated as pseudo code, or in cases where it makes sense, actual code.

Название: Data Analytics Applications in Gaming and Entertainment Автор: Gunter Wallner (Editor) Издательство: Auerbach Publications Год: 2019 Формат: True PDF Страниц: 318 Размер: 27.4 Mb Язык: English
The last decade has witnessed the rise of big data in game development as the increasing proliferation of Internet-enabled gaming devices has made it easier than ever before to collect large amounts of player-related data. At the same time, the emergence of new business models and the diversification of the player base have exposed a broader potential audience, which attaches great importance to being able to tailor game experiences to a wide range of preferences and skill levels. This, in turn, has led to a growing interest in data mining techniques, as they offer new opportunities for deriving actionable insights to inform game design, to ensure customer satisfaction, to maximize revenues, and to drive technical innovation. By now, data mining and analytics have become vital components of game development. The amount of work being done in this area nowadays makes this an ideal time to put together a book on this subject.
