Open-source electronics are becoming very popular, and are integrated with our daily educational and developmental activities. At present, the use open-source electronics for teaching science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) has become a global trend. Off-the-shelf embedded electronics such as Arduino- and Raspberry-compatible modules have been widely used for various applications, from do-it-yourself (DIY) to industrial projects. In addition to the growth of open-source software platforms, open-source electronics play an important role in narrowing the gap between prototyping and product development. Indeed, the technological and social impacts of open-source electronics in teaching, research, and innovation have been widely recognized.

The Internet of Things (IoT), with its technological advancements and massive innovations, is building the idea of inter-connectivity among everyday life objects. With an explosive growth in the number of Internet-connected devices, the implications of the idea of IoT on enterprises, individuals, and society are huge. IoT is getting attention from both academia and industry due to its powerful real-time applications that raise demands to understand the entire spectrum of the field. However, due to increasing security issues, safeguarding the IoT ecosystem has become an important concern. With devices and information becoming more exposed and leading to increased attack possibilities, adequate security measures are required to leverage the benefits of this emerging concept. Internet of Things Security: Principles, Applications, Attacks, and Countermeasures is an extensive source that aims at establishing an understanding of the core concepts of IoT among its readers and the challenges and corresponding countermeasures in the field. Key features: Containment of theoretical aspects, as well as recent empirical findings associated with the underlying technologies Exploration of various challenges and trade-offs associated with the field and approaches to ensure security, privacy, safety, and trust across its key elements Vision of exciting areas for future research in the field to enhance the overall productivity This book is suitable for industrial professionals and practitioners, researchers, faculty members, and students across universities who aim to carry out research and development in the field of IoT security.

A fresh look at electricity and its powerful role in life on Earth When we think of electricity, we likely imagine the energy humming inside our home appliances or lighting up our electronic devices—or perhaps we envision the lightning-streaked clouds of a stormy sky. But electricity is more than an external source of power, heat, or illumination. Life at its essence is nothing if not electrical. The story of how we came to understand electricity’s essential role in all life is rooted in our observations of its influences on the body—influences governed by the body’s central nervous system. Spark explains the science of electricity from this fresh, biological perspective. Through vivid tales of scientists and individuals—from Benjamin Franklin to Elon Musk—Timothy Jorgensen shows how our views of electricity and the nervous system evolved in tandem, and how progress in one area enabled advancements in the other. He explains how these developments have allowed us to understand—and replicate—the ways electricity enables the body’s essential functions of sight, hearing, touch, and movement itself. Throughout, Jorgensen examines our fascination with electricity and how it can help or harm us. He explores a broad range of topics and events, including the Nobel Prize–winning discoveries of the electron and neuron, the history of experimentation involving electricity’s effects on the body, and recent breakthroughs in the use of electricity to treat disease. Filled with gripping adventures in scientific exploration, Spark offers an indispensable look at electricity, how it works, and how it animates our lives from within and without.

This edited book presents scientific results of the 21st ACIS International Winter Conference on Software Engineering, Artificial Intelligence, Networking and Parallel/Distributed Computing (SNPD2021-Winter) which was held on January 28–30, at Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The aim of this conference was to bring together researchers and scientists, businessmen and entrepreneurs, teachers, engineers, computer users, and students to discuss the numerous fields of computer science and to share their experiences and exchange new ideas and information in a meaningful way and research results about all aspects (theory, applications, and tools) of computer and information science, and to discuss the practical challenges encountered along the way and the solutions adopted to solve them. The conference organizers selected the best papers from those papers accepted for presentation at the conference. The papers were chosen based on review scores submitted by members of the program committee and underwent further rigorous rounds of review. From this second round of review, 18 of most promising papers are then published in this Springer (SCI) book and not the conference proceedings. We impatiently await the important contributions that we know these authors will bring to the field of computer and information science.
