Synopsis:

'\'
\\\"Algorithms of the Intelligent Web\\\" is an example-driven blueprint for creating applications that collect, analyze, and act on the massive quantities of data users leave in their wake as they use the Web. Readers learn to build Netflix-style recommendation engines, and how to apply the same techniques to social-networking sites.

Synopsis:

Web 2.0 applications provide a rich user experience, but the parts you can't see are just as important-and impressive. They use powerful techniques to process information intelligently and offer features based on patterns and relationships in data. Algorithms of the Intelligent Web shows readers how to use the same techniques employed by household names like Google Ad Sense, Netflix, and Amazon to transform raw data into actionable information.

Algorithms of the Intelligent Web is an example-driven blueprint for creating applications that collect, analyze, and act on the massive quantities of data users leave in their wake as they use the web. Readers learn to build Netflix-style recommendation engines, and how to apply the same techniques to social-networking sites. See how click-trace analysis can result in smarter ad rotations. All the examples are designed both to be reused and to illustrate a general technique- an algorithm-that applies to a broad range of scenarios.

As they work through the book's many examples, readers learn about recommendation systems, search and ranking, automatic grouping of similar objects, classification of objects, forecasting models, and autonomous agents. They also become familiar with a large number of open-source libraries and SDKs, and freely available APIs from the hottest sites on the internet, such as Facebook, Google, eBay, and Yahoo.

Synopsis:

As mobile device usage continues to expand at a rapid pace, applications that effectively utilize a user’s location become increasingly valuable to businesses operating in the mobile world.

Location-Aware Applications aims to provide readers with a thorough background to the new era of location-aware applications that are set to change the mobile landscape and shape the very core of mobile services for this decade. It is designed to specifically address the growing segment of developer-entrepreneurs who wish to gain insights into specific aspects of establishing a viable LBS business.
