By modeling pedagogical scenarios as directed geometrical graphs and proposing an associated modeling language, this book describes how rich learning activities, often designed for small classes, can be scaled up for use with thousands of participants. With the vertices of these graphs representing learning activities and the edges capturing the pedagogical relationship between activities, individual, team, and class-wide activities are integrated into a consistent whole. The workflow mechanisms modeled in the graphs enable the construction of scenarios that are richer than those currently implemented in MOOCs. The cognitive states of learners in two consecutive activities feed a transition matrix, which encapsulates the probability of succeeding in the second activity, based on success in the former. This transition matrix is summarized by a numerical value, which is used as the weight of the edge. This pedagogical framework is connected to stochastic models, with the goal of making learning analytics more appealing for data scientists. However, the proposed modeling language is not only useful in learning technologies, it also allows researchers in learning sciences to formally describe the structure of any lesson, from an elementary school lesson with 20 students to an online course with 20,000 participants.

Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL) activities have become an arising field on the educational sector, aiming to enrich student's cognitive state through rich verbal interactions which help students to internalize their knowledge. At the same time, education is shifting to on-line classes, which allow students to choose from a variety of courses without any geographical restriction. Combining on-line interactions and collaborative learning has become one of the main challenges for CSCL softwares. FROG is an educational software that allows teachers to build easy and understandable mod- els of pedagogical scenarios, called Orchestration Graphs. These models allow the extrapolation from few students up to big scale. FROG focuses on developing activities which engage collabo- rative learning in real-time, but the usage of this technologies is limited to face-to-face interactions. Therefore, in this project, we have focused on the development of a video-conferencing system which allows students working on collaborative learning activities to achieve richer interactions. To build the web-based video-conferencing system we have used the WebRTC technology, that allows two browsers to exchange data in real-time, in our case, we have focused on audio and video streaming. The development of the project has marked a before and after of the usage of this software, FROG, for on-line classes. Allowing up to 6 users to be interconnected through video and audio while they collaborate through different activities. In the following thesis, we will discuss the decisions taken in order to achieve this result.

Service orchestration techniques combine the benefits of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Business Process Management (BPM) to compose and coordinate distributed software services. On the other hand, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) is gaining popularity as a software delivery model through cloud platforms due to the many benefits to software vendors, as well as their customers. Multi-tenancy, which refers to the sharing of a single application instance across multiple customers or user groups (called tenants), is an essential characteristic of the SaaS model. Written in an easy to follow style with discussions supported by real-world examples, Service Orchestration as Organization introduces a novel approach with associated language, framework, and tool support to show how service orchestration techniques can be used to engineer and deploy SaaS applications. Describes the benefits as well as the challenges of building adaptive, multi-tenant software service applications using service-orchestration techniques Provides a thorough synopsis of the current state of the art, including the advantages and drawbacks of the adaptation techniques available Describes in detail how the underlying framework of the new approach has been implemented using available technologies, such as business rules engines and web services

The Graph Music Of Morton Feldman

Morton Feldman is widely regarded as one of America's greatest composers. His music is famously idiosyncratic, but, in many cases, the way he presented it is also unusual because, in the 1950s and 1960s, he often composed in non-standard musical notations, including a groundbreaking variety on graph paper that facilitated deliberately imprecise specifications of pitch and, at times, other musical parameters. Feldman used this notation, intermittently, over seventeen years, producing numerous graph works that invite analysis as an evolving series. Taking this approach, David Cline marshals a wide range of source materials - many previously unpublished - in clarifying the ideology, organisation and generative history of these graphs and their formative role in the chronicle of post-war music. This assists in pinpointing connections with Feldman's compositions in other formats, works by other composers, notably John Cage, and contemporary currents in painting. Performance practice is examined through analysis of Feldman's non-notated preferences and David Tudor's celebrated interpretations.

Genetic programming (GP), one of the most advanced forms of evolutionary computation, has been highly successful as a technique for getting computers to automatically solve problems without having to tell them explicitly how. Since its inceptions more than ten years ago, GP has been used to solve practical problems in a variety of application fields. Along with this ad-hoc engineering approaches interest increased in how and why GP works. This book provides a coherent consolidation of recent work on the theoretical foundations of GP. A concise introduction to GP and genetic algorithms (GA) is followed by a discussion of fitness landscapes and other theoretical approaches to natural and artificial evolution. Having surveyed early approaches to GP theory it presents new exact schema analysis, showing that it applies to GP as well as to the simpler GAs. New results on the potentially infinite number of possible programs are followed by two chapters applying these new techniques.

Some of the fundamental constraints of automated machine vision have been the inability to automatically adapt parameter settings or utilize previous adaptations in changing environments. Symbolic Visual Learning presents research which adds visual learning capabilities to computer vision systems. Using this state-of-the-art recognition technology, the outcome is different adaptive recognition systems that can measure their own performance, learn from their experience and outperform conventional static designs. Written as a companion volume to Early Visual Learning (edited by S. Nayar and T. Poggio), this book is intended for researchers and students in machine vision and machine learning.
