Intelligence Power in Peace and War Cambridge University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Intelligence services form an important but controversial part of the modern state. Drawing mainly on British and American examples, this book provides an analytic framework for understanding the 'intelligence community' and assessing its value. The author, a former senior British intelligence officer, describes intelligence activities, the purposes which the system serves, and the causes and effects of its secrecy. He considers 'intelligence failure' and how organisation and management can improve the chances of success. Using parallels with the information society and the current search for efficiency in public administration as a whole, the book explores the issues involved in deciding how much intelligence is needed and discusses the kinds of management necessary. In his conclusions Michael Herman discusses intelligence's national value in the post-Cold War world. He also argues that it has important contributions to make to international security, but that its threat-inducing activities should be kept in check.

Forecasting Terrorism Scarecrow Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Terrorist attacks happen after years of careful planning; however, these plans always leave a trail of activities-a road map to the terrorists' forthcoming actions. These indicators include terrorist travel, movement of weapons, training, target surveillance, and tests of security. This guidebook identifies 68 such indicators and shows how to analyze them using a step-by-step explanation. It also includes safeguards against 38 of the 42 common warning pitfalls that experts have identified. That analysis then yields warnings that can prevent attacks and save lives. The methodology can be applied to any intelligence topic (not just terrorism) by simply changing the list of indicators. Warning failures are rarely due to inadequate collection; they are more frequently due to intelligence that has been ignored because it is delivered with weak analysis. With this model, author Sundri Khalsa brings sophisticated analysis methodology to security forces everywhere, promising a safer world. The accompanying CD-ROM provides a website display that is the interface to this forecasting system. It also includes a 45-minute video that describes the methodology step-by-step using the website display. This methodology was characterized by the Unit Chief of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Counterterrorism Threat Monitoring Unit as "light-years ahead," while officials in the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) have identified this system as "the bedrock for the evolving approach to terrorism analysis," and an "unprecedented forecasting model." This guide will be of interest to policy makers, journalists, police authorities, and concerned citizens.

Blondie 24 Morgan Kaufmann


Blondie24 tells the story of a computer that taught itself to play checkers far better than its creators ever could by using a program that emulated the basic principles of Darwinian evolution--random variation and natural selection-- to discover on its own how to excel at the game. Unlike Deep Blue, the celebrated chess machine that beat Garry Kasparov, the former world champion chess player, this evolutionary program didn't have access to strategies employed by human grand masters, or to databases of moves for the endgame moves, or to other human expertise about the game of chekers. With only the most rudimentary information programmed into its "brain," Blondie24 (the program's Internet username) created its own means of evaluating the complex, changing patterns of pieces that make up a checkers game by evolving artificial neural networks---mathematical models that loosely describe how a brain works.It's fitting that Blondie24 should appear in 2001, the year when we remember Arthur C. Clarke's prediction that one day we would succeed in creating a thinking machine. In this compelling narrative, David Fogel, author and co-creator of Blondie24, describes in convincing detail how evolutionary computation may help to bring us closer to Clarke's vision of HAL. Along the way, he gives readers an inside look into the fascinating history of AI and poses provocative questions about its future.* Brings one of the most exciting areas of AI research to life by following the story of Blondie24's development in the lab through her evolution into an expert-rated checkers player, based on her impressive success in Internet competition.* Explains the foundations of evolutionary computation, simply and clearly.* Presents complex material in an engaging style for readers with no background in computer science or artificial intelligence.* Examines foundational issues surrounding the creation of a thinking machine.* Debates whether the famous Turing Test really tests for intelligence.* Challenges deeply entrenched myths about the successes and implication of some well-known AI experiments * Shows Blondie's moves with checkerboard diagrams that readers can easily follow.

New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty and Its Impact on the United States' Elements of National Power Biblioscholar

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

As the Berlin Wall crumbled and the Soviet Union dissolved into fifteen independent states, another less visible change was occurring half way around the world. The geopolitical relationship between the United States (US) and former Soviet Union was also undergoing dramatic change following nearly a half century of nuclear weapon proliferation and brinksmanship. Central to this newly evolving relationship were nuclear non-proliferation treaties. Nuclear treaties between the US and the former Soviet Union have been instrumental in forging a positive geopolitical relationship between the two nuclear powers and shaping the US security strategy. While employed in the US National Security Strategy as a deterrent first and an instrument of battle second, nuclear weapons have been the impetus for international policy discussions between the US and Soviet Union. Their very existence has been useful as a tool to bring both nations together to discuss other significant issues. From 1991 to 2011, nuclear treaties have not only been used as a means to reduce the world's supply of nuclear weapons but also affect the global nuclear policies of our friends, allies and adversaries.

Praise for Real Time UML, Third Edition "I found Real Time UML, Third Edition, to provide an informative and practical application of UML 2.0 to the development of real-time systems, and well worth the read by systems and software engineers. It is written in plain English and provides the right balance of depth and breadth." -Sanford Friedenthal, Deputy, Corporate Systems Engineering, Lockheed Martin Corporation; Chair: OMG Systems Engineering, Domain Special Interest Group "Douglass has again made highly technical material accessible to everyone. This book is an excellent introduction to the new UML 2.0, and if you want to learn what modeling for real-time environments is like, this is the book to read. His witty, conversational style should be a model for all authors of technical material." -Gary K. Evans, Founder and Object Evangelist, Evanetics, Inc. ( "Douglass has been a co-chair of the OMG's group interested in quality of service issues and, therefore, has valuable insights into the usefulness of these emerging technologies. His clear presentation of this information helps those applying these advanced technologies to extract the most benefit for their organizations and products, not only for the intended real-time embedded product, but also for products whose quality of performance, while not critical, is nevertheless of interest." -Therese M. Smith, President and CEO, Air Traffic Software Architecture, Inc. (USA and Canada) "The author presents an excellent overview of UML in the real-time space with plenty of colorful examples. This book is an excellent teaching tool for a newcomer or a reference for an expert!" -Soma Chatterjee, Senior Product Manager, I-Logix The increasing complexity of embedded and real-time systems requires a more premeditated and sophisticated design approach for successful implementation. The object-based Unified Modeling Language (UML) can describe the structural and behavioral aspects critical to real-time systems and has come to the fore as an outstanding medium for effective design. Like its best-selling predecessors, Real Time UML, Third Edition, provides an overview of the essentials of real-time systems and an introduction to UML that focuses on the use of the ever-evolving standard in design and development. This accessible book examines requirements analysis, the definition of object structure and behavior, architectural and mechanistic design, and more detailed designs that encompass data structure, operations, and exceptions. Numerous figures help illustrate UML design techniques, and detailed, real-world examples show the application of those techniques to embedded systems. This significantly revised edition features the new UML 2.0 standard, which dramatically improves the clarity of the UML for capturing architectures and improving its scalability. Real Time UML, Third Edition, also introduces the UML Profile for Schedulability, Performance, and Time (STP Profile). The STP Profile provides a standardized way to capture schedulability and performance constraints of systems. This allows analysis tools to read and analyze UML models. Key topic coverage includes: * The Rapid Object-Oriented Process for Embedded Systems (ROPES) * Concurrency and resource modeling with the Real-Time (SPT) UML Profile * Tapping action semantics for greater executability * Scenario modeling with timing diagrams * Key strategies for object identification * Defining object state behavior * Representing and identifying threads * Mechanistic design patterns * Representing Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) Architectures with the UML

Ever since the term "crowdsourcing" was coined in 2006 by Wired writer Jeff Howe, group activities ranging from the creation of the Oxford English Dictionary to the choosing of new colors for M&Ms have been labeled with this most buzz-generating of media buzzwords. In this accessible but authoritative account, grounded in the empirical literature, Daren Brabham explains what crowdsourcing is, what it is not, and how it works. Crowdsourcing, Brabham tells us, is an online, distributed problem solving and production model that leverages the collective intelligence of online communities for specific purposes set forth by a crowdsourcing organization -- corporate, government, or volunteer. Uniquely, it combines a bottom-up, open, creative process with top-down organizational goals. Crowdsourcing is not open source production, which lacks the top-down component; it is not a market research survey that offers participants a short list of choices; and it is qualitatively different from predigital open innovation and collaborative production processes, which lacked the speed, reach, rich capability, and lowered barriers to entry enabled by the Internet. Brabham describes the intellectual roots of the idea of crowdsourcing in such concepts as collective intelligence, the wisdom of crowds, and distributed computing. He surveys the major issues in crowdsourcing, including crowd motivation, the misconception of the amateur participant, crowdfunding, and the danger of "crowdsploitation" of volunteer labor, citing real-world examples from Threadless, InnoCentive, and other organizations. And he considers the future of crowdsourcing in both theory and practice, describing its possible roles in journalism, governance, national security, and science and health.
