The Dark Mafia: Organized Crime in the Age of the Internet
By Marcel Danesi, Antonio Nicaso. 2023
This book explores how organized crime has adapted and evolved in sync with ever-expanding technologies to update its popular image…and to conduct its covert operations. It shows how organized crime operates in dark virtual spaces and how it can now form a dynamic interactive system with legitimate online spaces, solidifying its criminal exploits and resources, and making them attractive to a new generation of computer users. Focusing on Italian Mafias, Russian and Georgian criminal groups and drug cartels, and Asian crime syndicates such as Yakuza and Triads, this book aims to describe and explain the reasons behind the continuity of online and offline crime, taking into consideration whether or not internet culture has radically changed the way we perceive organized crime and if so how, and thus how the shift in popular imagery that the internet has brought about affects its actual illegal activities. We also consider how organized crime has shifted its locale from the physical to the virtual, how cybercrime has allowed criminal organizations to adapt and reinvent themselves, and how the police now use technology against organized crime. To better understand the new generation of criminals, it is becoming increasingly urgent to understand the latest technologies and how criminals utilize them. The Dark Mafia is an engaging and accessible introduction to understanding virtual organized crime. It will appeal to students and scholars of criminology, sociology, policing, and all those interested in the digital age of organized crime.

Data Driven Strategies: Theory and Applications
By Ricardo A. Ramirez-Mendoza, Ruben Morales-Menendez, Wang Jianhong. 2023
A key challenge in science and engineering is to provide a quantitative description of the systems under investigation, leveraging the noisy data…collected. Such a description may be a complete mathematical model or a mechanism to return controllers corresponding to new, unseen inputs. Recent advances in the theories are described in detail, along with their applications in engineering. The book aims to develop model-free system analysis and control strategies, i.e., data-driven control from theoretical analysis and engineering applications based only on measured data. The study aims to develop system identification, and combination in advanced control theory, i.e., data-driven control strategy as system and controller are generated from measured data directly. The book reviews the development of system identification and its combination in advanced control theory, i.e., data-driven control strategy, as they all depend on measured data. Firstly, data-driven identification is developed for the closed-loop, nonlinear system and model validation, i.e., obtaining model descriptions from measured data. Secondly, the data-driven idea is combined with some control strategies to be considered data-driven control strategies, such as data-driven model predictive control, data-driven iterative tuning control, and data-driven subspace predictive control. Thirdly data-driven identification and data-driven control strategies are applied to interested engineering. In this context, the book provides algorithms to perform state estimation of dynamical systems from noisy data and some convex optimization algorithms through identification and control problems.
Human Factors and Design
By Yuri Spirochkin. 2023
This book describes various manifestations of human factors when interacting with potentially dangerous technical systems: airplanes, launch vehicles and spaceships,…nuclear power plants, energy-saturated ground vehicles and infrastructure facilities. The idea of the book arose from the desire to find a common ground between industries that are important for safety. Their similarity lies, in addition to the technological advancement of products and solutions, in equally high safety requirements, in particular taking into account the influence of human factor. Thus, it is of relevance to analyze an impact of human factor in the context of safety. The matter is rather complex: on the one hand humans manage technical systems, on the other hand human errors, negligence or evil intentions can turn the system into a threat with disastrous consequences. However, human interaction with any technical system begins earlier – in the design stage. In this stage, designer, being creator of the system, must ensure a safe operation and take into consideration possible risks, including those caused by human factors itself. The book is interdisciplinary in nature and intended mainly for designers of technical systems, aiming to assist the specialists in understanding the issues of human participation in life cycle of these systems. The examples given are intended to benefit from experiences of not one, but a number of industries.
