DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Huawei Goes Global provides a much-needed, comprehensive, and scholarly examination of the business environment and the striving global operations of China’s technology giant. With theoretical research, case studies, data analysis, and empirical studies, this two-volume work tells a fascinating story of internationalization in an emerging economy. As one of the most powerful Chinese companies in the global economy, the largest global telecommunications-equipment producer and a leading consumer-electronics manufacturer, Huawei is a great example of the globalization of the Chinese enterprises in the twenty-first century. In Volume I, scholars critically examine the rise of Huawei as a Chinese global enterprise from the political economy and public policy perspectives, as well as Huawei’s development strategies, innovations, and talent management. In Volume II, multiple authors carefully study the growth of Huawei from regional and geopolitical perspectives, and its corporate communication and crisis management. Within the framework of the trade conflicts between China and the US, controversies over economic sanctions, intellectual-property disputes, and espionage and cyber security concerns, this groundbreaking work makes an important contribution to both academic literature and the ongoing public discourse on Huawei.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Master the robust features of R parallel programming to accelerate your data science computations About This Book Create R programs that exploit the computational capability of your cloud platforms and computers to the fullest Become an expert in writing the most efficient and highest performance parallel algorithms in R Get to grips with the concept of parallelism to accelerate your existing R programs Who This Book Is For This book is for R programmers who want to step beyond its inherent single-threaded and restricted memory limitations and learn how to implement highly accelerated and scalable algorithms that are a necessity for the performant processing of Big Data. No previous knowledge of parallelism is required. This book also provides for the more advanced technical programmer seeking to go beyond high level parallel frameworks. What You Will Learn Create and structure efficient load-balanced parallel computation in R, using R's built-in parallel package Deploy and utilize cloud-based parallel infrastructure from R, including launching a distributed computation on Hadoop running on Amazon Web Services (AWS) Get accustomed to parallel efficiency, and apply simple techniques to benchmark, measure speed and target improvement in your own code Develop complex parallel processing algorithms with the standard Message Passing Interface (MPI) using RMPI, pbdMPI, and SPRINT packages Build and extend a parallel R package (SPRINT) with your own MPI-based routines Implement accelerated numerical functions in R utilizing the vector processing capability of your Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) with OpenCL Understand parallel programming pitfalls, such as deadlock and numerical instability, and the approaches to handle and avoid them Build a task farm master-worker, spatial grid, and hybrid parallel R programs In Detail R is one of the most popular programming languages used in data science. Applying R to big data and complex analytic tasks requires the harnessing of scalable compute resources. Mastering Parallel Programming with R presents a comprehensive and practical treatise on how to build highly scalable and efficient algorithms in R. It will teach you a variety of parallelization techniques, from simple use of R's built-in parallel package versions of lapply(), to high-level AWS cloud-based Hadoop and Apache Spark frameworks. It will also teach you low level scalable parallel programming using RMPI and pbdMPI for message passing, applicable to clusters and supercomputers, and how to exploit thousand-fold simple processor GPUs through ROpenCL. By the end of the book, you will understand the factors that influence parallel efficiency, including assessing code performance and implementing load balancing; pitfalls to avoid, including deadlock and numerical instability issues; how to structure your code and data for the most appropriate type of parallelism for your problem domain; and how to extract the maximum performance from your R code running on a variety of computer systems. Style and approach This book leads you chapter by chapter from the easy to more complex forms of parallelism. The author's insights are presented through clear practical examples applied to a range of different problems, with comprehensive reference information for each of the R packages employed. The book can be read from start to finish, or by dipping in chapter by chapter, as each chapter describes a specific parallel approach and technology, so can be read as a standalone.

Release: 2020-04-30
Editor: transcript Verlag

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

In the age of globalization, the transnational dimension of sciences like medicine seems to be given. However, the agents connecting different parts of this transnational biomedical landscape have yet to receive their due attention. Situated at the intersection of contemporary debates as well as theories of medical anthropology and migration in the 21st century, this book explores the experiences of Nigerian trained physicians who migrated to the US and the UK within the last 40 years. By drawing on individual professional life stories, Judith Schühle illuminates how these physicians disconnect from and (re)connect to diverse local social and biomedical contexts, becoming established abroad while at the same time trying to influence health care services in Nigeria through transnational endeavors.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Historically, the United States has been viewed by generations of immigrants as the land of opportunity, where through hard work one can prosper and make a better life. The American Dream is perhaps the United States’ most common export. For many Americans, though, questions remain about whether the American Dream can be achieved in the twenty-first century. Americans, faced with global competition and increased social complexity, wonder whether their dwindling natural resources, polarized national and local politics, and often unregulated capitalism can support the American Dream today. This book examines the ideas and experiences that have formed the American Dream, assesses its meaning for Americans, and evaluates its prospects for the future.
