Self-Organizing Map Demystified: Unravel the Myths and Power of SOM in Machine Learning
Self-Organizing Map (SOM) was introduced as an unsupervised competitive learning algorithm of the artificial neural networks (ANN) by Finnish Professor Teuvo Kohonen in the early 1980s. In Artificial Intelligence, SOM algorithm is considered one of the most powerful algorithms in the fields of data visualization and exploration and is widely used in clustering analysis in data mining. Its ability to map high-dimensional input vectors onto a two-dimensional grid of prototype vectors and orders them topologically greatly facilitates the interpretation by naked human eyes. This book takes you through the concept, architecture, and algorithm of SOM in theory, followed by an exercise to design and program a SOM to recognize handwritten digits using MATLAB. Full source code for the exercise is available for download.

Bootstrapping Your Web Page Responsively: Building Mobile First Responsive Web with Bootstrap
In my book Responsive Web Design Codified, the readers learn about the needs and rationale for multi-screen friendly websites and the role of responsive web design in meeting such needs, explore the fundamentals of responsive web design through an elaborate walk-through on how to turn an indifferent web page into a responsive one using HTML5 and CSS3 and a combination of Retile, Replace, and Resize methods which I aptly coined the Three R's of Responsive Web Design in that book.In this way, the whole process is analogous to making a piece of furniture from scratch by applying carpentry knowledge and skills (HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript) and utilizing the right tools (web authoring software) to carry out the measurement, cutting, sawing, turning, planing, and chiseling on various furniture parts and putting them together according to the design. Unfortunately, this is too time-consuming and error-prone, and may not be everybody's cup of tea!Alternatively, you can source for ready-made furniture components and put them together. Likewise, in web development, you can choose to use one of the many front-end web development frameworks, such as Bootstrap, Foundation, Skeleton, and W3.CSS, to help you construct a responsive web page faster, easier, and with fewer errors.In this book, we set our sight on Bootstrap, by far the most popular front-end web development framework. Instead of manhandling HTML5 and CSS3, you will simply acquire the essential components from Bootstrap and assemble them into your web page to make it responsive to different screen sizes according to your design and requirements. The essential components that you need to acquire from Bootstrap for this purpose are container, grid, and navigation bar. This book explains in detail the behaviour and characteristics of these components and their usages reinforced with many examples, illustrations, and exercises. Once you are acquainted yourself with these components, this book will guide you through a hands-on session of assembling these components into a web page to make it into a responsive one. One thing is certain, you will have to employ the Three R's of Responsive Web Design in one way or another. Let the journey begin...If you wish to receive a copy of the source code, please contact me via the email address inside this book with proof of purchase.

Hands-on with HTML APIs: Harness the Power of HTML APIs
Over the years, HTML specification has added a bag full of APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) that cover a wide spectrum of functionality and features that power the future web browsers and mobile devices. This empowerment has brought about new possibilities and opportunities for the next generation of web applications that are more autonomous and can work offline, on multi-platforms, free of third party plug-ins and less reliant on server-side scripting. In the foreseeable future, it is not unimaginable that the web browser will replace our traditional metaphor of desktops on our computers, that of a web-based desktop.In this book, you will dip into the HTML APIs grab bag and draw out several of them for discussion and exploration peppered with plenty of hands-on exercises, these include:•Geolocation for finding and navigating your way on Earth;•Drag and Drop for dragging and dropping UI elements on HTML pages;•Server-Sent Events for delivering server push updates from servers;•Web Sockets for establishing full-duplex bi-directional communication between clients and servers;•Web Workers for spawning JavaScript on background threads;•Web Storage for inserting, updating, retrieving, and deletion of data in your browser;•File API for turning your browser into a web-based file explorer where you can read and save files on your computer’s local file system; and•Canvas for drawing and animating multimedia resources on HTML pages.Apart from the the many learning exercises, you also get to create interesting web applications including live stock quotes, real-time web chat, a web-based file explorer, and a clever hack to save web data from your HTML page to your computer’s file system.If you wish to receive a copy of the source code, please contact me via the email address inside this book with proof of purchase.

Responsive Web Design Codified: Building Multi-Screen Friendly Web Pages Responsively
Websites today serve not only traditional desktop monitors, but also televisions and handheld mobile devices like tablets and smartphones. Consumers, constantly connected and switching between devices anywhere anytime, expect the same degree of usability they experience across these devices. Therefore, it is both imperative and challenging for businesses to build a good multi-screen site that can deliver a consistently great user experience for all screens. How can websites provide for such an enormous range of screens and keep up with new screens of the future? The answer lies in Responsive Web Design. So, what is responsive web design? What are the alternatives? Why do we choose it? How to implement it? This book will tell you all...If you wish to receive a copy of the source code, please contact me via the email address inside this book with proof of purchase.

The Theodicy of Peter Taylor Forsyth: A “Crucial” Justification of the Ways of God to Man
The theodicy of the remarkable Scottish Congregationalist theologian Peter Taylor Forsyth has long been recognized as a vital and significant contribution to twentieth-century theology. Up until now, however, there has not been a substantial full-length treatment of Forsyth's work on the problem of evil. The Theodicy of Peter Taylor Forsyth fills this lacuna by setting out, in a fairly systematic and comprehensive manner, Forsyth's justification of God in the face of evil. In so doing, it also illuminates several other related areas of his thought, such as his epistemology and Christology, as well as his understanding of sin, the atonement, providence, divine passibility, human origins, and the God-world relationship.Bringing Forsyth's approach to the subject into conversation with other prominent thinkers like Leibniz, Dostoyevsky, Camus, Moltmann, Hick, Bauckham, and Fiddes, this book also suggests ways in which Forsyth's justification of God contributes to the current state of Christian theodicy. It highlights Forsyth's ability to integrate insights from different approaches, even those that have hitherto generally been considered diametrically opposed notions. Forsyth's theodicy therefore presents an integrative approach to the topic, with every theme flowing from and returning to a clear center: the cross of Christ. As the book also makes clear, Forsyth considers theodicy to be an immensely practical discipline, with significant implications for human life. In every sense, therefore, it constitutes a "crucial" justification of the ways of God to humanity."Of all the theodicies published during World War I, P. T. Forsyth's is the bravest and most significant. As one not inclined to book-cover hyperbole, I cordially welcome this book, which breaks new ground in the treatment of this crucial theme. No future study of Forsyth's theodicy will be complete if account is not taken of the contextually grounded, bibliographically aware exposition so lucidly presented here."-Alan P F SellMilton Keynes, UK"This valuable analysis of P. T. Forsyth's work focuses on his significant 1916 wartime publication on theodicy. In doing so, it also offers a clear and consistent account of his wider theological contribution through dealing with themes of divine grace, the person and work of Christ, secondary acts of divine judgment, and universal human redemption. An informed and reflective study, this will establish Dr. Leow as one of the leading interpreters of P. T. Forsyth's work today."-David FergussonUniversity of EdinburghTheng Huat Leow is a Lecturer in Theology at Trinity Theological College, Singapore.
