Beginning Machine Learning in the Browser
Beginning Machine Learning in the Browser

Apply Artificial Intelligence techniques in the browser or on resource constrained computing devices. Machine learning (ML) can be an intimidating subject until you know the essentials and for what applications it works. This book takes advantage of the intricacies of the ML processes by using a simple, flexible and portable programming language such as JavaScript to work with more approachable, fundamental coding ideas. Using JavaScript programming features along with standard libraries, you'll first learn to design and develop interactive graphics applications. Then move further into neural systems and human pose estimation strategies. For training and deploying your ML models in the browser, TensorFlow.js libraries will be emphasized. After conquering the fundamentals, you'll dig into the wilderness of ML. Employ the ML and Processing (P5) libraries for Human Gait analysis. Building up Gait recognition with themes, you'll come to understand a variety of ML implementation issu ...
Automated Unit Testing with ABAP
Automated Unit Testing with ABAP

Write automated unit tests for the ABAP language. This book teaches programmers using simple examples and metaphors and explains the underlying concepts of writing effective automated unit tests. Many, if not most, ABAP programmers learned their programming and testing skills before the ABAP development environment provided an automated unit testing facility. Automated Unit Testing with ABAP: A Practical Approach offers hope and salvation to ABAP programmers who continue to toil with antiquated manual unit testing processes, taking them by the hand and lifting them out of that dungeon of despair with a modern and proven alternative. It begins by explaining how the xUnit family of automated testing frameworks provides a quick and effective means of insuring high-quality software. It then focuses on the ABAP Unit Testing Facility, the xUnit framework applicable specifically to the ABAP language, showing how it can be used to bring ABAP applications under automated testing control, fr ...
