About the Book :- Financial services have always been based on one key resource: information. Financial services organisations are about using information to assess (or give probabilities) to future events. Whether this is to predict mortality rates for life policy premiums, which customers are likely to need a personal loan to buy their next car, the rate to charge on a commercial loan, or to authorise an individual credit card transaction, it all depends on the flow of information. Ultimately, the quality of information and the ability of a business to extract value from it, is the key to competitive success or even survival. Today, the free availability of and advance of digital technology has only served to exaggerate the importance of understanding and organising information. It is in this context that Customer Information Management is intended to provide a sound understanding of the skills and knowledge required to effectively manage information systems in the strategic context of the financial services industry. It covers the topic via four main themes; managing information in the financial services environment, change management, customer management and delivery channels. Contents :- 1. The business and competitive environment 2. Strategy 3. The legal and regulatory environment 4. The social environment 5. The technology environment 6. Business analysis and change management 7. Projects and project management 8. Methodologies and techniques 9. Risk management 10. Understanding customers: customer knowledge management 11. Customer relationship management 12.

Wireless body area network (WBAN) is a small scaled network that operates inside, on, or in the peripheral proximity of a body. The strong demands from both medical and healthcare society and consumer electronics industry have been accelerating the development of WBAN. WBAN is expected to be one of the main technologies of providing extremely high convenience and high efficiency in assisting healthcare or medical services. From the consumer electronics point of view, WBAN is also of great interest in providing body centric electronics for leisure, entertainment, game control, etc. Recent technological advances in low-power microelectronics, miniaturization, and wireless networking enable the design and proliferation of WBAN. However, engineers and designers of WBAN may face a number of challenging tasks such as regulatory circumstance, channel model, low power consumption, thermal effect, antenna and body loss, high-efficiency radios, reasonable data rate, high reliability, and efficient medium access. This book addresses various aspects of WBAN including:- • Introduction • Regulations • Antenna, Body Tissues and Radio Propagation • Physical Layer Technologies • Medium Access Control • Standardization The objective of the book is to provide sound understanding to the basic concepts, characteristics, and technologies of the new fast growing WBAN system. Frequency regulations on candidate frequency bands, such as ultra wideband (UWB), industrial, scientific, and medical (ISM), medical implant communication service (MICS), and wireless medical telemetry system (WMTS), in different countries and regions are investigated and summarized. Antenna, propagation, and channel modeling related to WBAN are described. Effects of radio frequency on tissues and organs and effects of human tissues on RF propagations are addressed. Physical (PHY) layer technologies including both narrow band and UWB are illustrated. Medium access control (MAC) technologies for WBAN are discussed and a unified MAC design which is independent of underlying PHY technologies is given. Standardization with IEEE802.15.6, IEEE 11073, and ETSI eHealth Project are briefly reviewed. This book is a useful tool for university students, communication system engineers, as well as communication system researchers who study or design WBAN.

Embedded systems are today, widely deployed in just about every piece of machinery from toasters to spacecraft. Embedded system designers face many challenges. They are asked to produce increasingly complex systems using the latest technologies, but these technologies are changing faster than ever. They are asked to produce better quality designs with a shorter time-to-market. They are asked to implement increasingly complex functionality but more importantly to satisfy numerous other constraints. To achieve the current goals of design, the designer must be aware with such design constraints and more importantly, the factors that have a direct effect on them. One of the challenges facing embedded system designers is the selection of the optimum processor for the application in hand; single-purpose, general-purpose or application specific. Microcontrollers are one member of the family of the application specific processors. The book concentrates on the use of microcontroller as the embedded system’s processor, and how to use it in many embedded system applications. The book covers both the hardware and software aspects needed to design using microcontroller. The book is ideal for undergraduate students and also the engineers that are working in the field of digital system design. Contents List of Abbreviations • Process design metrics; • A systems approach to digital system design; • Introduction to microcontrollers and microprocessors; • Instructions and Instruction sets; • Machine language and assembly language; • System memory • Timers, counters and watchdog timer; • Interfacing to local devices - Analogue data and analogue I/O subsystem; • Multiprocessor communications- Network-based interfaces.

About the Book:- In recent years, there has been a growing interest in the fields of pattern recognition and machine vision in academia and industries. New theories have been developed, with new design of technology and systems in both hardware and software. They are widely applied to our daily life to solve real problems in such diverse areas as science, engineering, agriculture, e-commerce, education, robotics, government, medicine, games and animation, medical imaging analysis and diagnosis, military, and national security. The foundation of all this field can be traced back to the late Prof. King-Sun Fu, one of the founding fathers of pattern recognition, who, with visionary insight founded the International Association for Pattern Recognition around 1980. In the almost 30 years since then, the world has witnessed the rapid growth and development of this field. It is probably true to say that most people are affected by, or use applications of pattern recognition in daily life. Today, on the eve of 25th anniversary of the unfortunate and untimely passing of Prof. Fu, we are proud to produce this volume of collected works from world renowned professionals and experts in pattern recognition and machine vision, in honor and memory of the late Prof. King-Sun Fu. We hope this book will help promote further the course, not only of fundamental principles, systems and technologies, but also its vast range of applications to help in solving problems in daily life.
