Book Description
Big Data Analytics relates to the strategies used by organizations to collect, organize and analyze large amounts of data to bring out hidden patterns and insights from the data which otherwise cannot be analyzed through traditional systems.
Through this book, you’ll learn to setup big data environment on the AWS/Azure platform and configure various tools for performing analytical operations on big data table comprising of millions of records. Furthermore, you’ll learn to explore various other components of hadoop ecosystem such as YARN, MapReduce, HDFS, HIVE, etc to perform various analytical operations. As you progress further, you’ll be introduced to NoSQL databases for efficient querying and storage of data. To scale up processing time you’ll learn to integrate Spark in to your environment and understand how its components – Spark Streaming, MLLib, etc can be used for quicker computations.
Once you have gained mastery over mining and organizing the data, you’ll learn to derive ad interpret meaningful analysis of data using predictive, prescriptive, statistical and other form of machine learning techniques. You’ll learn to implement various supervised, unsupervised and deep learning models with the help of real-world examples to gain detailed sense of understanding of machine learning is in practice. By the end of the book, you will have a very clear and concrete understanding of what Big Data Analytics means, what tools and techniques organizations are using to implement their Big Data platforms, how they are driving revenues and how users can develop their own solution based on the step-by-step approach articulated in the book.

Perth Plants: A Field Guide to the Bushland and Coastal Flora of Kings Park and Bold Park
CSIRO | English | 2016 | ISBN-10: 1486306020 | 440 pages | PDF | 107.84 mb
by Russell L. Barrett (Author), Eng Pin Tay (Author)
Perth Plantsprovides a comprehensive photographic guide to all plants known to occur in the bushlands of Kings Park and Bold Park. There are 778 species included–both natural and introduced–representing approximately one quarter of all the plants in the greater Perth region, and one-tenth of all species known for the south-west of Western Australia.
This second edition of this field guide contains 22 additional species and updated photography throughout.
Features:
* This is one of the most detailed field guides available for south-west Western Australia, with species presented in their most current scientific classification.
* With multiple photos per species, the book provides a relatively easy means of identifying both native and naturalized species in the Perth region and beyond.
* Small enough to fit in a backpack for field use, but detailed enough to provide a solid identification tool, this is a very practical field guide.

Pathways for Peace ~ Inclusive Approaches to Preventing Violent Conflict

Pathways for Peace: Inclusive Approaches to Preventing Violent Conflict

Pathways for Peace: Inclusive Approaches to Preventing Violent Conflict by United Nations
English | May 31, 2018 | ISBN: 1464811628 | 80 Pages | PDF | 4 MB
The resurgence of violent conflict in recent years has caused immense human suffering, at enormous social and economic cost. Violent conflicts today have become complex and protracted, involving more non-state groups and regional and international actors, often linked to global challenges from climate change to transnational organized crime. It is increasingly recognized as an obstacle to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.
This has given impetus for policy makers at all levels from local to global to focus on preventing violent conflict more effectively. Grounded in a shared commitment to this agenda, Pathways for Peace: Inclusive Approaches to Preventing Violent Conflict is a joint United Nations and World Bank study that looks at how development processes can better interact with diplomacy and mediation, security, and other tools to prevent conflict from becoming violent. To understand what works, it reviews the experience of different countries and institutions to highlight elements that have contributed to peace.
Central to these efforts is the need to address grievances around exclusion from access to power, opportunity, and security. States hold the primary responsibility for prevention, but to be effective, civil society, the private sector, regional and international organizations must be involved. Enhancing the meaningful participation of women and youth in decision making, as well as long-term policies to address the aspirations of women and young people, are fundamental to sustaining peace.
The Pathways for Peace: Inclusive Approaches to Preventing Violent Conflict – Main Messages and Emerging Policy Directions report previews findings from the full study, which will be published in 2018.
