Summary

<P>The exponential progress and accessibility of computing has vastly increased data flows and revolutionized the practice of science, engineering, and communication. Computing plays a critical role in advancing research across almost every scientific discipline. </P><B> <P>Computation for Humanity: Information Technology to Advance Society</B> is a guide for the creation of services, products, and tools that facilitate, support, and enhance progress of humanity toward more sustainable life. This book: </P> <UL> <P> <LI>Provides a deep understanding of the practical applications of computation to solve human-machine problems</LI> <LI>Delivers insight into theoretical approaches in an accessible manner</LI> <LI>Provides a comprehensive overview of computational science and engineering applications in selected disciplines</LI> <LI>Crosses the boundaries between different domains and shows how they interrelate and complement one another</LI> <LI>Focuses on grand challenges and issues that matter for the future of humanity</LI> <LI>Shows different perspectives of computational thinking, understanding, and reasoning</LI> <LI>Provides a basis for scientific discoveries and enables adopting scientific theories and engineering practices from other disciplines</LI> <LI>Takes a step back to provide a human-related abstraction level that is not ultimately seen in pure technological elaborations/collections</LI> <P></P></UL> <P>The editors provide a collection of numerous computation-related projects that form a foundation from which to cross-pollinate between different disciplines and further extensive collaboration. They present a clear and profound understanding of computing in today's world, and provide fundamental solutions to some of the most pertinent humanity-related problems.</P>
